Do you like this story?
One of the most stupid things that I have recently heard from the news was this new scandal that is currently rocking China's exports. Its not about toys that contain lead or candies that contain other toxic substances. This time, it is their milk that has been put on hot seat. Their milk products was found to contain melamine, a substance (i don't what-the-heck was it made of! Chemistry was my worst high school subject!) that was used in making countertops, dry erase boards, fabrics, glues, housewares and flame retardants. Melamine is also used to make fertilizers. This melamine substance creates the illusion that the milk has, in caps lock and bold, A HIGHER PROTEIN CONTENT.
Which is more important? Higher savings or better health? I can't absolutely find any logic to why the Chinese would deceive their citizens, neighboring countries and children about it? This is a business tactic that has gone mad!
