In the 1950s, the people of Minamata, Japan started seeing strange behavior from the local cats, and it wasn't long before humans were showing the same symptoms.

And they are putting mercury into vaccines which is injected directly into your bloodstream and causes brain damage, especially in children which are being injected with more toxic vaccines then ever before. Because of this and other contributing factors brain disorders have gone from 1 in 100 to 1 in 10 and is projected to be 1 in 5 in a few years. There is nothing wrong with the science of vaccines but they are being used to destroy our brains

Can this in any way be related to the dancing plague?

And the chisso corporation still operates today rebranded as japan new chisso. You'd think they would be closed down after poisoning thousands of people.

Pretty fascinating story. Literally, "the perfect storm" of environmental and chemical variables fell into place. I was wondering how dancing Cats fit into this. Now I know, thank's SciShow. Lol.

One issue: Methylmercury is NOT the most poisonous. That goes to dimethylmercury. Seriously

Ah, the huge power of corporations that the company was able to continue to dump poison in the bay for years after the basic problem was figured out. Pure corruption. Big corporations are NOT your friends, in any country in the world. Their political power is outrageous and very dangerous to humans. It is the political power they can literally buy that makes them dangerous.

The reason the cats were affected so much sooner than humans was not only due to their size but also the parts of the fish that were thrown out as scraps. The organs had greater amounts of mercury than the flesh. Shinzo Co. denied their culpability in the disaster for decades and even buried the work of one of their physicians. They stuck to the story of "we aren't dumping organic mercury so it isn't us" far longer than they should have. The whole disaster actually inspired the story and world of Nausicaa and the Valley of the Wind.

Well at least the company did the right thing they saw the problem that they caused and without hesitation in a short 12 years they stopped their practice of dumping chemicals into the ecosystem.

Cats are really animals of routine (from my observation). When the cats start acting weird, something is usually wrong. My cat saved me from a black widow by acting weird.

look....i'm not a chemist, but i don't understand why anyone would think it is a good idea to just dump waste into nature.....just spend the extra money and properly dispose of it......this is why we humans are a cancer to this planet

Reminds me of DuPont in West Virginia, except DuPont was far worse and the government will never force them to clean up the mess(if that would even be possible).

I just love how much suffering, death, and serious harm has come from lazy, greedy corporations that will do anything horrendous if that means that they save money, regardless of the results on its consumers (like McDonalds) and others involved.

This is probably one of the reasons "mysterious deadly disease covered up by a conspiracy" is a common trope in thoughtful scary japanese media. As in one of my favorite anime, Higurashi no Naku koro ni.

Just to let you know, the banner ads provided by google cover up most of the screen and I am unable to read any of the annotations. The banner ad has no way of turning it off due to new aggressive advertising. It is not your fault however if your audience suffers, you will too. Suggestion is to contact Youtube about their banner ads OR remove monitization (sp) temporarily till Youtube quits their monopoly control issues. I do not run ads at all on my channel.

A majority of the time, does anything good ever come from chemical factories? It seems a majority of them either blow up, set on fire, poison either the workers or environment, as well as deny everything and run somewhere else to repeat the process for money. ALL AROUND THE WORLD, in the same process.

People like those should be tortured for twenty years then slowly fed the methylmercury while still being tortured till the mercury kills them as they watch their own children being tortured and fed more methylmercury so that they watch them die before they lose their own ability to comprehend their own children's death.

What?! No videos of the dancing cats?! I wish you would use more visuals and less time of you talking to the camera. Your topics are the best and you have lots of good info to share but after watching over a hundred of your videos I’ve become frustrated at the lack of good visuals and tired of watching you stand there reading to me. I’ve been considering donating through Patreon but I think I’ll hold back until you make changes to your format. Sorry

No videos because the cats weren't dancing, they were having seizures and dying. Only a psychopath would want to see that or put that in a video

Isn't dimethylmercury worse than methyl mercury?
Dawson Williams (8 месяцев назад)
The most dangerous form of mercury, I believe, is actually dimethylmercury. It's much worse than methylmercury, at least

Yet more proof that corporations have never and never will care for the people. Even aside from the moral degeneracy of these action, I don’t get it. Eventually, in this pursuit for money, they will find the money that they hoard will be useless, for all those who they suck money from will be dead. Money will have no worth, since they make it so life has no worth. It’s sickening.

But wait?!?! So no more dancing cats?!?!? That's horrible!
partlycurrent (9 месяцев назад)
This is nothing more than propaghanda! Corporations would never do something like that! If they did, they would have to face the consequences, since the invisible hand of the market "punches" everybody that does other people wrong. Look around people, has any corporation that ever did something evil managed to survive? Didn't think so
