Unbelievable but true

Today in the news it has been stated that babies in china are dying after being poisoned. Apparently the babies were being fed bottled milk that contained a chemical called "melamine" which is used in plastics. This chemical was put in the milk to make it appear nutritious but so far 3 babies have died and that more are expected as others lie in hosiptal with serious kidney failure. Can you imagine what this world is coming to in order to survive? The scammers will do whatever it takes despite of the devastations that others will have to face. These poor mothers go into the supernarket and pick up a container, or packet etc of milk to take home and feed their babies but oblivious to the fact they are poisoning there beautiful babies. This is happening only because some IDIOT somewhere has a cold heart and is only thinking of money. I mean are there any of you that would do whatever it takes to feed yourself or family despite the cost of pain that will be inflicated on others? What are yours views on this?

this is really sad. how come there are businessman who earns money for the expense of other people. but i think there is also a flaw in the quality control of china. there should be a department in which they check the products before they approve it for sale. this is really bad to think that the victims are the innocent ones. hopefully china can do something about this

Hopefully the government can do something about it as it will really affect them financially in terms of export and import. I had that the UK was thinking of banning any diary produce entering the country fom China so am sure this will affect them a bit and make them wake up and do what is required to protect the citizens of China.

Exactly honestly the poor babies are going through hell. Its was worse at that age when they cannot fully express themselves and all they can do is cry.

Is this another issue to discredit China? another conspiracy theory to discredit the country? hey Olympics are finished. ok I ma not a Chinese but lately we have been hearing a lot of things about China, lead in toys made from China, formalin in foods, etc and I really don't believe those things because I grew up using China products, medicinal one so I think Chinese gave a very important views on health, they are very health conscious people, so my theory is this things that happened in China was just a play to dis credit them.

But they have actual footage of the disaster. I dont think it was something made up and apparently two men have been arrested. Its a shame but true.
