“China Expects Too Much,” Says Cancerous Chinese Milk Company

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 9, 2012

China has serial toxic milk problems, ie the people of this country are more likely to be dunking their Oreos in cancer causing melamine rather than honest to goodness cows milk.
Now, some communist, as all leaders of these places are (all companies have to have a commie rep), says that the people of china want too much, quote here,
“The chief of a leading Chinese dairy farming company has dismissed charges of pollution against his company, saying people expect too much from the firm.
“The general public demands too much from us,” said Deng Jiuqiang, chairman of Modern Farming, at the company’s headquarters in Dangtu county, located in central China’s Anhui province.
His company was excoriated recently after aflatoxin, a carcinogen, was found in milk from one of its ranches. There were also complaints of pollution against the company’s dairy farm in Ma’anshan, a city in Anhui, according to Guangzhou-based magazine Time Weekly.
People living nearby say the farm is infested with insects during the summer. Further, they say its cattle are abnormally noisy and the farm emits a strong odor year-round. A reporter who visited the farm to look into the complaints found the ranch swamped with the manure, attracting swarms of insects.”

Hmm, I can see his point. This place has too many people, so I guess he wants to wipe a few million of them out…..

Poisoned Pooch- Millions of Poisoned Dogs and Cats Eaten in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 9, 2012

Chinese have an odd idea of what the term ‘food’ means, or maybe its just me. Show them some wild animal and the first they wonder is how it would taste when it ends up on their dinner table.
They are also fond of dog and cat meat. Some ‘ancient Chinese wisdom’- an oxymoron in its truest sense, says that dog and cat meat are good for one’s body in the winter time, thus this time of year the locals flock to slaughter our pets so they can stay healthy.
An unfortunate turn of events, or perhaps its the god of little creatures, has nailed the Chinese with some ‘chin music’ aka a high and tight fastball destined to rid them of their noses. As the excerpt below shows, the meat that is being served is at times poisoned.
The Chinese choose to eat about 14 , 000,0000 dogs and cats each year and at times use poison to get our furry little friends ready for the grill. Having the mindset that many do, however, they fail to realize that the meat they’ve poisoned will still retain its poison and pass it along to the end user.
I guess this news should make me sad, but it does not. I am pulling for the dogs and cats out there…

Excerpt from here:

“It is estimated that an average of 10 million dogs and 4 million cats are killed and served as food each year in China. While this is clearly a risk to the animals themselves, many people have also been killed by eating meat from cats and dogs that were killed with poison.”
