I suspect the effects would not show at all… i.e. it is essentially a lie or a hoax to be concerned about mercury from tuna… UNLESS you eat like maybe 10 kg of it per week… and even then some research argues that the mercury in tuna is bound to other stuff, and so absorbs much less into the body, hence the test for mercury.

Next time I go to GP, I will ask specifically to test for mercury. I eat enough of tuna for it to show in a blood test, IF this is a REAL problem… but I suspect it is not, and all of it is spin and bull.
