Recently I have taken to eating a can of tuna with some crackers as my lunch. Somebody asked how I could eat raw fish. I have never thought about it before, but is tuna that you get in a can raw? or has it been cooked?

Canned tuna is usually steamed or baked. I think you can get some fancy kinds that are smoked (lox-style) as well. If your coworker doesn't believe you, point out the expiration date on your tuna can some time- raw fish surely wouldn't be good for a couple of years, no matter how tightly sealed!

I've always been under the impression it was boiled.

I love sushi, but for some reason, I don't care for tuna rolls.

I used to eat three cans a day!

And Sylvester Stallone claims to have only consumed tuna and water for 6 months to lose fat for one of his Rocky movies.

The FDA warns against heavy metal levels in Tuna. You shouldn't eat it more than 3x a week, if I remember correctly. Someone should Google that and post the resutls.

Here's the FDA and EPA advisory, primarily aimed at pregnant women and young children. Canned albacore and tuna steaks have higher mercury levels than canned light tuna, so they recommend an average maximum 6 oz of albacore/steak or 12 oz of lower mercury seafood per week for the high risk groups.

If you're not pregnant, recently pregnant, planning to be pregnant, or a young child, they allow up to twice that. With the health benefits of fish, and the various risks associated with other foods, I'm personally not too concerned about this danger.

Tuna is generally put into the can raw, and then cooked in the can before it is labeled and shipped. I'm unsure if the pouch tuna is cooked before or after it is packaged.

At the risk of sounding like a total idiot, can you explain how they cook the tuna in the can?

If it's similar to other food processing that I've seen, it gets packaged in the can, then cooked in a "steam oven". The packaging travels along moving chains that carry it through the oven for a set time (based on the speed of the chain and the length of the oven), allowing for enough time to assure proper internal temperature is reached, followed by a cool down period. After that, they slap on a label, box it, and it's off to a warehouse.

If you have to say it...

My educated guess is: Much like everything else that's cooked in its can, vacuum sealing prevents any untimely explosion during the process. I believe it's usually steam cooking? There are probably millions of search engine results that go into detail if you're bored enough to check (I wasn't).

Times like this remind of graduate school, where the amount of work I have on my desk is directly responsible for the amount of things I will find to destract myself from doing said work...

Back in high school to lose weight for wrestling my diet consisted of only tuna. To lose weight I would open a can of tuna, squeeze out as much water as possible and carry it like a can of dip. Whenever I was hungry I would pack a little tuna in my lip and let it sit there until it was gone.

Now to eat tuna I load it up with mayo, mustard, hot sauce, relish and fresh cut onion. Explains the 135 lb athlete from ten years ago to the 200 lb guy I am today.

Assuming you have the legal right to the song in question, you could upload it to just about any hosting service and link it. But for the love of god don't. Or if you must, let people turn it off if they want. Embedded music in pages is evil. IMHO.
