What's the current consensus about canned tuna and mercury levels? Do they still recommend that you only eat light canned tuna? Is albacore still ok?

If you're not pregnant and/or over 18, eat up. Larger fish (albacore) have more mercury bioaccumulation, but if you're a decent-sized person it shouldn't be a big issue.
Avoid farm raised salmon, however. Dramatically higher mercury accumulation in farms.
Canned light tuna is supposed to be better than other tuna, but there have some studies that suggest that the mercury levels aren't all that much lower.
