    I see that crab is low in mercury, so is it allowed?

    Also, based on this, I wonder why scallops and shrimp are not recommended?

    My wife eats crab for special occasions and I eat shrimp once every few months or so. Anything in small amounts isn’t that bad for you, but the main things I would worry with seafood include radiation (fukishima) and toxicity. For instance, crabs are a bottom dwelling creature and the bottom of the ocean is where all of the heavy toxins go…so you are essentially consuming light amounts of toxins. So, I wouldn’t consume crab/lobster like every week or anything but once in awhile shouldn’t cause any problems.
