Poison warning to Japanese dolphin-eaters|
Mark Willacy, Tokyo
A Japanese government study has found that the residents of a village whose slaughter of dolphins featured in an Oscar-winning film have dangerously high mercury levels.
But the villagers are being told there is no need for them to change their diet.
The study involved the testing of more than 1,000 people in Taiji, the Japanese village whose killing of dolphins was graphically shown in the Oscar-winning documentary The Cove.
It found that mercury concentrations in residents are four times the national average.
One of the scientists involved in the study says the results suggest that there is a connection between mercury levels and the residents' diet of dolphin and whale meat.
But at a meeting in Taiji the townsfolk were told there was no need to change their diet.
The head of the town council celebrated by eating raw slices of dolphin dipped in soy sauce.
