Most Americans, particularly women of childbearing age, fail to eat the recommended amount of seafood despite clear recommendations to eat more seafood from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

The moderator will kick off this interactive poll-technology session with an introduction on current seafood intake and engage attendees on how to translate risks and benefits into edible consumer sound bites, followed by a discussion from a world-renowned selenium expert on his cutting-edge research showing how the binding of selenium and mercury in fish minimizes adverse effects of mercury and in which fish.

A registered dietitian who specializes in women's health will round out the conversation with practical ways to communicate the risks and benefits of eating seafood, how to translate science to alleviate consumer concerns and how to meet seafood recommendations.
