Purdue iPhone App Guides Pregnant, Nursing Women on Eating Fish Safely
A team at Purdue University has developed an iPhone app that helps pregnant women gauge how much seafood is safe for consumption. The program not only helps women track their intake but also offers recommendations on best eating practices. This development was based off of studies conducted by Charles Santerre, professor of food toxicology, which focused on healthy intake of fats and heavy metals such as mercury. This free app is called Fish4Health and is available in English, Spanish and traditional or simplified Chinese.
