It is universally acknowledged that the food safety is closely related to our health and life. However, with the scandals coming one closely after another from baby milk to chemically additive food, china’s chronic food
safety disorders have become a great threat to public health.
I think the responsibility goes for the most part to the food producers especially those who fail to meet safety standards. In order to sell more products and make great profits, some food producers may even intentionally use various chemicals and additives during manufacturing and processing just to make food look or taste good or keep long without taking people’s life into consideration.
In view of the graveness of the problem, effective measures must be taken before things get worse. Firstly, it is imperative that relevant laws and regulations should be enforced in a strict way. It is important to drastically increase penalties on those who neglect food safety statutes. Secondly, the public should be trained and educated to be alert to food quality. Only by taking these actions can the problem be tackled successfully in the nearest future.
