In Mexico, 23,000 tons of shark meat are consumed annually.I n several species of shark, levels of toxic chemicals found to be 10 times higher than what’s considered safe. Mercury is a neurotoxin that can impact growth and development in humans. Organic mercury, or methylmercury, can also cross the blood-brain barrier and, therefore, is the most dangerous to pregnant women and young children. Prolonged exposure or build-up of mercury can also cause problems with cognition, muscle movement, and vision.
