Chinese Antibiotics “Made From Sewage”

Chinese are aghast at reports that pharmaceutical companies have been making antibiotics out of cooking oil made from sewage, the cost of clean (and legal) oil having apparently proven an intolerable drain on their profits, whatever its possible effects on the health of their customers.

The oil has reportedly been finding its way into the antibiotics production process because it is cheaper than the massive expense of using regular soy bean oil.

Whether the antibiotics resulting from the more economical sewage production process pose demonstrable health risks is not clear, although the sewage-strained cooking oil is already regarded as being highly contaminated and unfit for human consumption.

Authorities claim they are investigating the extent of the problem, although given their success in stamping out the supposedly illegal cooking oil industry few are likely to be reassured.

The “sewage” or “gutter” cooking oil, made by reclaiming oil from sewage and kitchen waste, has itself been the subject of scandals for years.

Despite it being illegal and the subject of repeated crackdowns and widespread public disgust, such “recycled” oil still remains in common circulation throughout China – with the authorities apparently unable or unwilling to stamp out its manufacture, and Chinese entrepreneurs only too willing to continue the ghastly practice.

    Another idiot who DOESN'T UNDERSTAND ENGLISH WORDS!

    Its not capitalism either, its unregulated greed.

    Koch brothers are top of the list for creating pollution in the USA. Hundreds of millions in fines.

    Liberals = equal rights for all... and is NOT anti-business. But responsible business.

    Capitalism is fine, the concept and intentions are not innately evil. This is simply human nature.

    Which capitalism allows to get out of control by not having the proper protections on it in most cases.

    Capitalism like this is the conservatives wet dream and they KNOW that this is what would come from their idea of capitalism.

    Agreed, Anonymous. This is why capitalism without protections and regular checking up on industry is NOT a good thing.

    It always trends towards greed, people ignoring the safety of others, etc.

    Things like this are exactly why the Chinese girl I was banging could not reproduce. The chick was 100% infertile, yet there was no known history of infertility in her family tree.

    Feed woman food.
    Feed woman estrogen.

    Tiny woman from Cathay. Grow up little food. Worthless female to them. Why they let White Man fuck them, amazed they cute to anyone while Yellow man Lust after White woman.... Me no racist, Yellow man want white woman, HAVE her, I'll introduce you, just you no say we cheat? And fair is fair, we like cute China girls...

    So feed her good food.
    And -from a non-toxic non exploding source- get ESTROGEN. She doesn't have enough. She'll get a bit fatter, but you'll have boobs with a belly, and she'll readily make you strong sons!

    This is a rash correlation.

    Exactly why is it a "rash correlation"? Chemical runoff & improperly disposed toxic waste are linked to a number of cases involving infertility, birth defects, genetic abnormalities, mortality rates & cancer. None of this is "new science", or mere conjecture. There are even films about famous trials relating to improperly disposed toxic waste like "A Civil Action" and "Erin Brockovich".

    The only difference between this and chemical runoff is that this is very intentional. Oh, and China has no one like the EPA and the FDA to step in and put a stop to it.

    It is rash because

    1. Someone saying there are not infertility issues in a family doesn't mean there are none.

    2. While not common some people are simply infertile.

    3. Was she an only child?

    4. Did she actually come into contact with tainted food in sufficient quantities to cause infertility?

    5. Does she show any other symptoms related to toxic food ingestion long term.

    6. Is there a wide spread infertility issue with her generation?

    There are many reasons someone can be infertile and picking one with no actual evidence is rash.

    I think I understand their logic. I mean China still has the largest population of any country in the world, right? If there are still 1.3 billion people in China alone out of approximately 7 billion in the entire world, then clearly their standards can't be seriously lethal no matter how gross they are, right?

    Clearly I need to run a buisness, as I've already got the rationalization down.

    I seriously have suspicions over Japan's claims that diaoyu/senkaku is theirs. Dokdo is clearly Korean islet and look how Japan is trying to claim it as theirs.

    Comment by Anonymous

    What's with the low rating on this?

    Dokdo has been Korea's for centuries before Japan tried to claim it as their own or invaded Korea. Later, The US kicked Japan out of Dokdo and it was retaken by US and Korea. After US left, US revoked Its claim over Dokdo.

    Dokdo is Korea's.

    Seriously. Although the current Japanese government is not the terrorist from back in the days, what kind of person would you have to be to support Japan's claim over Dokdo? I thought Japanese were supposed to be respectful and show manners. The Japanese government bluntly denies war crimes they performed, tries to disrespectfully claim Dokdo as theirs, and there are idiots who support these actions by the government?

    Well, going by that kind of idiotic thinking, I guess Germany shouldn't try to forget Hitler's crimes and make him a national hero. And since our own country can do no wrong, US didn't invade the indians. The indians were the bad guys. We were the good guys.

    What kind of idiot thinks like this?

    It's because of idiotic nationalists like this that we have such problems in the world.

    that island is far enough away from korea to not be theirs by default.

    senkaku is part of a string of islands that japan has claim on, only reason its wanted is because it has valuable shit on it, and to make japan chinas bitch.

    So Dokdo shouldn't be considered Korean because it's a little closer to Japan, but Diaoyu/Senkaku which is nowhere near Japan and close to China is Japanese island?

    Some logic.

    They have no choice. Leaving the country is near impossible for the average family, trying to go against it's government means death or troubled life and well the many ignorant racist caucasian retards who's only knowledge of China is from this site or Fox News, want them away from their countries because of "stealing jobs" is not exactly a positive reinforcement to move.

    So yeah...It's literally submit and be assimilated to the rich powerful assholes. This is what happens in the extremes of capitalism.
