Emperor Akihito's fugu feast

A chef wants to feed Japan's Emperor Akihito poisonous blowfish. Yutaka Sasaki thinks the 75-year-old royal - who is protected by a centuries-old law which bans the Japanese monarch from eating the fish, known as fugu - should "set a good example" and chow down. He said: "The prince and other royalty have eaten fugu, so why not the emperor? It would set a good example." Fugu is one of the world's most poisonous fish. The skin and innards of each creature contain tetrodotoxin, a deadly neurotoxin with no known antidote. The entrails are so toxic they are locked in a purpose-built barrel and burnt as soon at the fish has been gutted. Sasaki insists the dish is as safe as a burger if it is prepared by a licensed chef - in 30 years, no one has been poisoned by the fugu in his restaurant in Tokyo. He is now trying to promote the "heavenly" flavour of the famous dish, while clearing up myths and legends. Sasaki told America's Los Angeles Times newspaper: "A diner's lips do not turn numb with a good piece of fugu. That's a lie. If you're eating fugu and your lips turn numb, you're well on your way to being dead." Japanese diners eat 10,000 tonnes of fugu a year, and it can cost more than $450 a meal. In the past decade, 34 have died of blowfish poisoning, with thousands more suffering from breathing difficulties and paralysis. Earlier this year, six men in northern Japan were rushed to hospital after eating grilled blowfish testicles prepared by an unlicensed chef. They all survived.
