    Yes.

    It's possible to eat too much of anything.


    Canned/Tinned Tuna contains trace amounts of mercury that can build up and cause health problems. Especially if you are a female.

    But just because you are male doesn't mean the same danger doesn't exist.

    Most article I've read said to limit your canned/tinned tuna consumption to 3 cans per week.

    This^

    Pelagic fish can contain a lot of pollutant metals however levels in individual fish vary considerably. But stuff like swordfish, tuna, sardines are at high risk of containing these metals.

    14 cans of tuna a week is probably to much then?
    Whether you think you can or can't, either way you are right.

    I hate to refer people to bodybuilding.com.. but here's a great article by Michael Roussell (Ph.D in Nutrition) on Tuna and Mercury..


    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/mroussell5.htm

    He even refers to a calculator that will calculate how many cans of tuna are safe according to your weight.
