INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Japan has a new Minister of State for Consumer Affairs and Food Safety, Ms. Mizuho Fukushima. At a recent press conference held in Tokyo, Ms. Fukushima agreed to investigate whether eating dolphin and whale meat causes mercury poisoning in humans.

Now a study has been released that shows that residents in the fishing village of Taiji have 10 times the normal amount of mercury in their system. Please join us in asking Ms. Fukushima to ban the sale of poisonous dolphin and whale meat.
