Japan’s got a problem. They import 60% of their food. Leaving local farmers in the dust, but that’s just part of the problem. The food they’re importing is bad. The Japanese used to eat a lot of fish and vegetables, but now they’re consuming more meat, fat and oil, giving way to an unhealthy population.
So, Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries is imploring citizens to reexamine their lifestyle and make smarter choices. Saying if people demand more vegetables and return to their dietary roots, this will help enliven the struggling agricultural community and improve health, i.e. restoring balance.
And it must be a good idea. Because all the little people in the video are bopping to the music!
