When greed gets started it takes going to hell and back to end it.. Expanding to every living body it can. Greed is a horrible sensation in which your mind focuses on one thing, profit. Is so set on getting money that you unknowingly block out the rest of the world as if they don’t exist, and when you do acknowledge them, a rarity, treat them like crap. Just when we think greed can’t take anyone else, it does.
It was recently confirmed by the Environmental Investigation Agency (managed by Clare Perry) that Yahoo! (Japan) has been taking part in the slaughter of the Taiji dolphins in the cove. Yes, its so unrealistically true… One of the worlds leading search engines has been taken with greed, and is now selling RISSO DOLPHIN MEAT from the killing cove in Taiji.
TOKYO (March 1, 2011) — Environmentalists Monday called on Yahoo! Japan to ban all sales of whale, dolphin and porpoise products on their fee based Store and Auction sites after discovering that whale products sold via the Yahoo! Japan sites were contaminated with toxic mercury pollution. Mercury can cause brain and neurological damage in humans.
The Environmental Investigation Agency, a non-profit environmental group based in Washington and London released new results of eight whale products purchased recently from Yahoo! Japan Store sites and tested by a laboratory in Japan earlier this month. Five of the products exceeded the Government of Japan safety guidelines for mercury contamination in seafood for human consumption. The average concentration of mercury in the eight products was 1.78 parts per million, more than four times higher than the “safe” level of 0.4 set by the Government of Japan.
One whale meat sample was more than 16 times the limit for mercury at 6.5ppm. The sample was sold as “dried whale from Taiji.” Taiji is the town where the Oscar winning documentary “The Cove” documented mass killing of dolphins in the nearby bay.
Clare Perry, EIA’s senior campaigner who released the mercury results today in Tokyo said that “Yahoo! Japan has a responsibility to end the sale of whale, dolphin and porpoise products to ensure that mercury contaminated products are no longer sold to their internet customers. Thousands of dolphins, porpoises and small whales continued to be killed around the coast of Japan posing a threat to the health of anyone who consumes such products.”
Kitty Block, vice president of Humane Society International said, ”Yahoo Japan is the biggest internet retailer in Japan and we appeal to them to help protect both the people of Japan who may eat these contaminated products, and also the whales, dolphins and porpoises that are killed in their thousands around the coast.”
Yahoo MUST stop their support and endorsement of this cruel hunt and slaughter. Let them know how YOU feel about the subject! Feedback Form
