Date:4/11/2009

ould include no more than 6 ounces of albacore tuna a week, it says.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists echoes that advice in its own nutritional guidance.

Still, many Americans, including expectant moms, don't get even two servings a week.

"The message is, eliminating fish is not a good thing," Meehan said. "Fish is uniquely important for brain development in babies."
