We’re in the midst of a, or should I say the annual, milk powder scandal in China.
Unscrupulous baby milk manifacturers are lacing the product with so much poison, children are dropping dead or developing kidney stone. What a perfect metaphor for our times! Here you have a great product which has been working fine for tens of thousands of years: Mother’s milk. It not only nourishes the child, but enhances its immune system.
Greedy manufacturers get in on the act and through advertising make mothers believe that breast milk isn’t good enough, no, they must buy a milk product made from cow’s milk ( only suitable for calves) if they want to have a chance to see their baby grow strong and healthy like Americans.
This product, in order to make a little bit of a profit for the manufacturers, then proceeds to kill the children.
It’s beautiful isn’t it? Apart from the fact that dairy products have never been a part of the Chinese diet until the lastÂ ten years or so when MILK suddenlyÂ started to beÂ advertised as health drink number one with the inevitable result; instant obesity – the entire north of China is now a desert because of over-grazing by cattle.
Yes, the western way is certainly the best way.
