Yes. While the thought of consuming Mercury may sound dangerous, the fact is that many foods, especially seafood, contain trace amounts of mercury. The amount of mercury present is generally not enough to cause any side effects to most people, though pregnant women should try to limit consumption to avoid harming the fetus.
