I've been vegetarian for more than two years, if I started eat fish would it make me sick?

I'm comfortable with not being vegetarian any more, but I still baulk at the thought of eating mammals so I was thinking of going just pescetarian (a diet with no mammals/birds but including fish). I've heard that when vegetarians go back to eating meat products it can cause stomach upsets and/or vomiting. Would this happen if I started eating fish again?

Thanks!

No it won't. A little upset stomach maybe but nothing serious.

No 90% of todys fish does nt contain mercury. Otherwise, the most fish eating societies like Japan and the Mediterraneans and the Pacific Islanders would all be sick of mercury poisoning. They are in fact considered some of the healthiest societies on the planet. That's just typical vegetarian scare tactics propaganda that is not even based on simple logic much less credible fact.
