In 1992, the Ministry of Welfare decided to move Japan's National Institute of Health to a new site ignoring the voices of opposition from residents near the new location who protested that there was a danger of contamination from pathogenic bacteria and toxic chemical substances. However, one of the scientists at the Institute who also pointed out the danger decided to cooperate with the residents in the new area.
