Mmm-mmm Melamine, Part MII

In the wake of the latest incident of melamine-contaminated milk in China, the Epoch Times reports that wealthy Chinese are now growing their own vegetables to ensure food safety.

In recent years, Chinese people have fought hard but ineffectively against poor food safety standards. There are simply too many tainted foods, from raw food products to cooking oil and food utensils. Waste oil, toxic chopsticks, and toxic lunch boxes can still be cleaned up, but there are three sources of poisoning which are most difficult to handle.

The three areas are: pesticides, food "additives" like melamine, and pollution.
