Question About China and Toxic Food

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 15, 2011

I have been to many poverty stricken countries, but have never seen anything like that which happens here vz putting poison into food to make a few pennies. My question is why the Chinese do this? Is it greed, a lack of God or culture?

    To answer your question

    – Greed
    – Lack of remorse/conscience
    – They could get away with it (acceptable risk/reward ratio)

    their attitude is this: “I am adding melamine to the milk to fool the sensors. I don’t care who the milk kills since my family will never drink this and I could make a little extra”


    “by adding melamine to the milk, I could make (more) money instead of losing (or not make as much) money if I am honest (and naive, stupid, etc.)”
