Can coffee disperse the mercury in your fish?

Could drinking coffee when you eat fish reduce your exposure to mercury poisoning? According to a Univ. of Montreal study published in the Journal of Environmental Research drinking coffee or tea with your meal containing fish could actually give dramatic results. The study used in vitro techniques to simulate human digestion and showed exposure to the toxin was reduced 50-60%. If you also boil or fry the fish as well you will increase those numbers.
