China and India – milk for babies

Posted in Uncategorized by moneymanagement on September 29, 2008

In India, it is a casually accepted fact that milk is adultrated. Most households, even in urban areas buy milk that is not pasturised,,,,from the local dudhwala who brings milk in cans and measures it out in front of the housewife. There are many a slips of water between the shop and home. 

The government bags of milk are are injected and milk is removed and water added. Blotting paper is also romoured to be used to thickened the milk. Our checks are so poor and so easily bribed away that they are non existance. But who really cares about the poor country India or for that matter who really cared about what China did with thier milk till it started killing babies in China. 

Well, the world did not really care about the small eyed yellow babies but the fact Chinese products are exported world over and may be on your table too!!!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7635466.stm ran a story explaining the whole contamination procedure.

Have you eaten or drank any milk or milk based product that is made in China?

    I had been addicted to eating “White Rabbit” candy a couple of years back and I must have eaten a couple of packs in the last one decade. Now it has been confirmed that this particular candy was also laced with melamine. I am not sure if the candy I consumed in the past was contaminated or not.

    Milk is a staple product which we consider safe and healthy for everyone from children to the elderly. So this really comes a shocker.
