Amy Johnson
Little Rock, Arkansas

Amy Johnson, 36, is a legal nonprofit director and mother to two little girls, ages three and one. She and her husband are expecting a third daughter in April.

"Before I became pregnant with our first child in 2006, I ate fish several times a week without a second thought. Then when we found out we were expecting, I did what most mothers-to-be did and read up on what I needed to do to have a healthy pregnancy. I was distraught to learn not only that the fish I had been regularly eating could be putting my unborn child at risk, but that the risks could continue once the baby was born and I began breastfeeding."

"I try to make healthy choices when it comes to the food I buy and prepare for my family. Everyone knows that it's important to limit junk foods that can lead to obesity, diabetes, and other health problems. I find it alarming that we have to limit or avoid foods that would normally be considered healthy, like tuna, because they contain pollutants shown to cause neurological damage in young children."
