Victoria Beckham is apparently the latest celebrity to have been poisoned with dangerous levels of mercury in her blood due to a strict fish-based diet.

Earlier this week, Robbie Williams described it as “almost dead” of mercury poisoning after eating what he thought was a healthy diet in which fish appeared twice a day.

He may not be alone, as Beckham is said to have been offered the same frightening information from a blood test.

according to The sun, Beckham, 46, was visiting a luxury spa in Germany last year when she discovered there were some unwanted side effects to her healthy eating plan.

The newspaper says her diet has now collapsed and she is back feeling how good she is.

Williams, who is now a vegan, said this week that part of what he had in mind to go plant-based was discovering that there were toxic levels of mercury in his blood.

He said Radio X.: “I got the highest mercury poisoning the doctor has ever seen.

“Do you know what I was thinking when I heard that? ‘I’ve won!’ That’s how my ego works, ‘I have the highest level … did you say the highest level? Thank you.'”

Williams said: “I won the cash prize.”

Mercury poisoning can occur from eating too many types of fish and seafood, including swordfish, tuna and marlin.

It can be dangerous because raising money can cause kidney failure.

Pregnant women are especially advised to limit the amount of fish with mercury to eat.
