Bad milk


Remember that Chinese tainted milk scandal? Where companies had used the industrial chemical melamine was added to watered down milk to fool protein inspectors. Well the end result was a boost in profits, 300,000 sick children because of course, melamine is known to cause kidney stones and sometimes outright kidney failure. And now  two men, Zhang Yujun and Geng Jinping; deemed responsible, have also been executed by the government on charges of endangering public health and selling toxic food.

I often think about these toxic food cases that come out of China and wonder whether they’re more concerned over the actual health problems they have caused in innocents, or embarrased over being caught out. Sure the Government steps in and executes where deemed appropriate, but is it for the right reasons? Somehow, when China is concerned, I have serious doubts.
