Please sign the petition calling on Mr. Shigeyuki Goto, Minister for Health in Japan, to stop ignoring the evidence and ban the sale of this toxic product.

Your signature will not only help keep people safe. It could pressure officials to end this horrific slaughter – saving countless dolphins from suffering and death.

Minister Shigeyuki Goto

Numerous tests have shown dolphin meat for sale across the country contains levels of mercury that are much higher than the amount your government recommends as safe for human consumption, as laid out in the Food Sanitation Act. However this product continues to be sold with very little regulation or testing – putting people’s health at serious risk.

Japan has national limits regarding the amount of mercury allowed in food for a good reason; it is a dangerous substance.

Using your authority to halt the sale of mercury-laden meat would demonstrate great leadership and genuine care for the people who elected you to protect them. Please do not let them down. Take responsibility for people’s health by getting this toxic product off the shelf.
