I worry about the effects of the Trans-Pacific Partnership on Japan’s food supplies. We should protect our food. I don’t want farmers and fishermen to lose traditional Japanese skills. Japan’s food culture needs to be passed on to the next generation.

Do you want your children to eat chemical additives and gene-modified food? If you want children to grow up healthy, you should spend money on organic food before education.

Children must be healthy to play, exercise and study. Children must know the importance of eating well. Some children might even want to be farmers or fishermen in the future.
