Mercury bio-accumulates in the largest marine predators
Mercury toxins bio-accumulate and the largest sea predators like tuna, sharks and dolphins have the highest levels in their flesh.
Dolphins are not food!
Dolphins, pilot whales. etc are the most toxic mercury source in the sea but unwitting Japanese eat thousands of tons of their meat every year.
Dolphin meat can cause mercury poisoning
Some supermarket dolphin meat tested in Japan shows much higher mercury levels than the contaminated fish that caused Minamata disease.
Mercury can slow children’s neural growth
Research studies show the slightest amount of mercury can retard children's neural growth and the effects are often permanent.
Recent research links mercury to autism, ADD and diminished IQ.
Mercury poisoning impacts children's brain development and also causes many symptoms that are indistinguishable from autism.
