China: Bread Basket to the World?

My post a few days back (May 20) went on (and on) about the appalling conditions of China's food legislation bodies, and the deadly impact it is having on nations around the world as the Chinese now supply unprecedented amounts of our food chain.

Further scary news comes in today from The Guardian that the Chinese former head of their Food & Drug administration has been sentenced to death for accepting bribes to push unsafe products into the market. This the guy responsible for all food and drug products in the country. The country that exports billions of dollars worth of both around the world.

Apparently, the stiff sentence (no pun intended) is to allay fears and send out the message that they do indeed take this stuff seriously.

For me? Not seriously enough, and definitely not soon enough.
