Strangely this scandal affects many more countries globally and not just Japan.
Brazil exports globally and in yesterdays news they were not sure if the meat/produce ever got into japan.
Brazil meat and chicken is popular.

Noticed a LOT of Burger places like the above opening up recently in my area.
None cheap nor have an extensive menu.
I do like my burgers but refuse to pay those prices.

Not surprising, data from campaigns and free give-aways is another often used source.
Just imagine how much info the current Super Friday(Softbank) give away alone can yield.
Lots of online shops also use prediction algorythms for advertising, suggestions, etc.

I don't worry about those stats, ditto for BMI.
I found my ideal weight and it doesn't come from a chart, of course it changed as I aged.
Natural weight-gain as you age is inavoidable.
Known athletes who were chubby, etc

The relationship has already been destroyed businesses around the market closing.
Rebuilding in situ can't be done as the buildings need to come down(asbestos).
It is one of the busiest markets in the world(Fish, Fruit & Veggies).
So any disruption will be bad and costly to the end-users like us.
Too many people still think if it as a tourist attraction and not as a needed business catering to Millions.
