Capsules Made of Toxic Gelatin, Another Food Scandal in China

Since the mass protests due to melamine milk scandal, the Chinese government, though imprisoning protest leader Zhao Lianhai, has begun to pay attention to the problems of poisoned food. In spite of that, lots of food scandals soon followed. The major ones were toxic bean-sprouts, pesticide-drenched green beans, milk tainted with leather-hydrolysed protein, dumplings made of aluminium-contaminated rice, pork that glows in the dark, pork with remnants of lean meat powder, toxic take-away boxes and sewer oil (oil produced from food leftovers collected from sewer).

Frustrated, the government now employed police to deal with the problem, punished producers of sewer oil severely and awarded those who provide information on sewer oil production. Still as all things are obedient to money, driven by greed for money, similar problems keep on cropping up.

The newest one was discovered last week: drug capsules made from industrial gelatin containing toxic chromium.

CCTV reported yesterday that according to Ministry of Public Security, as soon as the toxic capsules incident emerged, it deployed its branches in Hebei, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, etc. to make investigation. So far 77 million drug capsules made from industrial gelatin containing toxic chromium had been confiscated, 9 suspects were arrested, 54 suspects detained, and 80 industrial gelatin and gel capsule production lines, sealed.

Liu Aiguo, an employee of the Hebei Fucheng Xueyang Gelatin Factory was arrested for setting fire to the factory in an attempt to destroy evidence. Those who gave Liu instruction to destroy the evidence were detained for the crime including Song Jiangxin, former Chairman of Fucheng County Wangji Township People’s Congress and Song Xunjie, sales manager of the factory.

Two drug manufacturers’ drug production licenses were revoked for serious violation of the law and regulations and relevant respondent people were transferred to the judiciary to be held responsible for the crimes.

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
