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
Is there a movie about this? if not somebody go make it.
i will pay money to see radioactive cats dance, and NO CGI cats
dammit i want the real deal so find some plutonium!
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEYYYY!!!!
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.
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
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
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.
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
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
