Barry Artiste Op/Ed
Boy this story is sure getting old, almost two years since the last report, it seems everything you slam down your Gullet comes from China, and worries about obesity killing you, pales in comparison to what the long term damage Chemicals such as Lead, Melamine, Asbestos, Mercury, Malachite etc and other metals and chemicals in our Chinese made products, which seems to be every Chinese Food suppliers or Manufacturer send your way for that Low, Low Price Consumers demand, whether it kills you or not.
Melamine, an industrial chemical, in infants can lead to kidney failure. To say the Chinese Government is not complicit in all this, is like saying, Saddam Hussein is the New Messiah and the Second Coming.
Governments and Manufacturers in North America, Europe and other countries who continually allow this to happen endlessly to us, the consumer, are just as complicit when proof positive shows it wont end EVER when profit is the bottom line on both sides of the world!

Cause it doesn't seem to be our side!
Just wait till Halloween, one can be certain Candies are next on the Health Hit List.
