In April 1956, a five-year-old girl in Minamata, Japan, began to tremble. Doctors were puzzled by her symptoms, which also included difficulty walking and speaking. She then developed severe convulsions. Soon after, more people were found suffering from the same illness. What was causing this devastating disease? Look inside to learn the tragic story of how a city was poisoned by toxic wastewater.
