Coke in chlorine

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

 Or is it the other way round? Who knows? Chinese are assiduously going through the periodic table of elements and this time they enjoy chlorine in Coca-Cola. Whatever turns you on, as the saying goes. [Fog of Chaos – Chromium anyone?]

The food-safety regulator in Shanxi province said Saturday that during an April inspection it found that a batch of drinks produced by Coca-Cola (Shanxi) Beverage Ltd. was made with water containing chlorine. The statement, from the Shanxi Provincial Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision, refers to the suspension as a penalty for the chlorine levels. = = = A whistleblower in Coca-Cola first reported the chlorine levels to local media, according to the state-run Xinhua news agency.

Chlorine, a naturally occurring chemical, commonly is used to kill bacteria in water, but high levels can be hazardous to human health, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

China’s regulators have aimed to improve the country’s food safety in recent years and have waged frequent crackdowns against violators. [Fog of Chaos – Melamine anyone?] Problems persisted years after the 2008 tainted-milk scandal in which six children were killed and 300,000 others fell ill after drinking infant formula that contained the chemical melamine.

What’s one man’s poison, is another’s drink. Whatever turns you on. Perhaps profit? Maoist disregard of human beings?

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    The governments control people, who could became a danger to them, not people who are danger to other people. Chinese can import anything however poisonous or dangerous with impunity. Bribes ?
