tuna in oil vs wise

I asked below about water leaching nutrients out of tuna vs. tuna in oil. After comparing the nutrient values from the FDA for 100 grams of white tuna, it appears that the tuna in oil is the healthier choice. It is higher in most nutrients, lower in cholersterol and the calorie difference is not significant. The tuna in water is higher in vitamin A, selenium, and calcium. Maybe someone with more nutrition experience could look at them and shed some light on the comparison. Thanks for everyone's imput.
