Hands-on Practice 1
I go to CNN San Francisco Bureau News. Then I read "Fish Dinner."
Topic: Fish Dinner (From a news story by San Francisco CBS 5 Reporter Barbara Roger September 2004) Website: http://www.literacynet.org/cnnsf/fishdinner/home.html Title: Someone who eats so healthily feel so unhealthy lead: Why, she wondered, would someone who eats so healthily feel so unhealthy? body: Severe fatigue and vertigo, very weak. I was at one point able to leg press two hundred pounds, (but) I could barely walk down the block,” says Wendy Moro...............
who: For someone who watches her diet as much as Wendy Moro what: What fish is safe to eat, and how much mercury consumers are actually ingesting. when: "A few times a week I was having fish, whether it was once or three times or four times," says Wendy. where: why; Why does someone who eats so healthily feel so unhealthy? how:“Mercury occurs naturally in the environment and can also be released into the air through industrial pollution. Mercury falls from the air and can accumulate in streams and oceans and is turned into methylmercury in the water. It is this type of mercury that can be harmful to your unborn baby and young child. Fish absorb the methylmercury as they feed in these waters and so it builds up in them. It builds up more in some types of fish and shellfish than others, depending on what the fish eat, which is why the levels vary.”
