Minimata disease:

Minamata disease is a neurological syndrome caused by severe mercury poisoning. Symptoms include numbness in the hands and feet, general muscle weakness, narrowing of the field of vision and damage to hearing and speech. In extreme cases, insanity, paralysis, coma and death follow within weeks of the symptoms. Minamata disease was first discovered in Minamata city in Kumamoto prefecture, Japan in 1956. It was caused by the release of methyl mercury in the industrial waste from the Chisso Corporation's chemical factory. Over 2,250 victims have been officially certified (1,400 of which have died) and another 10,000 have received financial compensation from Chisso. It is estimated that over 2 million people may have eaten contaminated fish from Minamata Bay.
