 Taka Update January 15, 2014

Fish delivery and more

Cold weather is coming back again!  Golf course greens might be frozen and low chance to play golf this weekend.

Fish supply is not bad except tuna. Japanese fish supply is back to normal. I have Kasugo-Dai, Baby Sea Bream and Akayagara, Cornet fish for January- February.

Uni is no problem, I have 2-3 trays always.


SushiandPassion Book?

It is just like Opening Restaurant. “Coming soon.” But we don’t know when. I contacted a few times and they said working on it. And I did not get final draft yet. So, I do not mind delaying. Our business is very good and not time to check the final. I will fly to Hawaii memorial weekend and do the job there. That might be better.


One-third of children's lunch boxes contain toxic lead
Environmental regulations since the 1970s have helped to rein in lead, following its universal recognition as a probable human carcinogen and powerful neurotoxin worth avoiding as much as possible. The elimination of lead-based gasoline and paint, as well as the phasing out of numerous industrial and commercial sources of lead has helped improve societal exposure and lower overall burden over the past several decades.

Exposure to lead in developing children, as well as mothers and children during the prenatal period, remains an especially sensitive area, where significant potential for harm exists even from relatively low-level doses. It can irreversibly reduce IQ, impair cognitive function and negatively impact behavior, not only intellectually but socially, as well as damage numerous organs. Thus, even seemingly innocuous sources of lead exposure in children are worthy of attention.
One of the most widely targeted products has been one that comes into close contact both with children and the food they eat: lunch boxes.

The alarm was first sounded by the Center for Environmental Health, based in Oakland, California, which tested dozens of products back in 2005, finding that about 25% of soft vinyl lunch box containers included lead as a stabilizer, which helps the PVC plastic keep its shape. Nevertheless, millions of children were toting them around.

Michael Green, Executive Director of the Center for Environmental Health, pressured manufacturers to get the lead out of their products and avoid the use of PVC, stating "Parents shouldn't have to worry that lead might be lurking in their children's lunch. We urge other manufacturers and retailers to meet the same safety standards quickly, so all children's lunchboxes can be free of lead risks." Many of the offending products were produced inside the United States.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, however, cast doubt on the significance of the findings, claiming their own testing revealed only low levels of lead that presented no immediate harm, despite the fact that the heavy metal accumulates and has been found to cause irreparable damage even in small amounts.

Furthermore, environmental exposure to lead has been found in studies to contribute to population-wide declines in performance, with children - particularly those living in industrialized areas - ranking as the most vulnerable group.
