TEN THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT MINAMATA DISEASE

Minamata disease shows us that we must not ignore the past, and the more we study and learn about it, the more it teaches us lessons about living, such as the value of the environment and health.

So that the tragedy of Minamata disease will never be repeated, we have prepared answers to some of the most common questions about Minamata disease.

We will be gratified if this pamphlet helps to improve understanding of Minamata disease.
