What toxicity melamine and clenbuterol could cause will appear in the sixth edition of most popular Chinese science book “One Hundred Thousand Whys”, indicating the country’s food safety concerns also spook children.
Melamine and clenbuterol are two chemicals illegally used by dairy producers and farmers, respectively, which have infuriated ordinary Chinese who call for enhanced supervision and more severe punishment for those food safety violators.
Answers to such questions as:”Can we travel back to the Qing Dynasty?” “Why do we sometimes feel so blue?” and “Why are we who we are and not someone else?” will also appear in the new book.
Food safety is a popular concern among Chinese adults (and most other adults who live in this country), mainly because it doesn’t seem a week can go by without another disgusting scandal coming to light.
