Minamata Disease in Tokyo Shoseki’s Social Studies Textbook for Grade 5 Volume 2.

I made this picture for refuting dolphin freaks and the Cove.

In Japan, all Japanese people learn Minamata Disease(a Japanese mercury poisoning incident) in public and private primary schools under the Japanese governmental course guidelines and even very poor people learn that fact. People of Taiji, too. So Japanese people couldn’t miss such a mercury poisoning by dolphin meats in Taiji if it were true.

* Tokyo Shoseki’s social study textbooks are about 50% of all. So it’s a standard textbook. And other publishers’ textbooks mention Minamata Disease.
