Leather Milk Surfaces Again in
Apr 1, 2011
When a nation and people become evil in the eyes of the Lord God’s vengeance comes and tears at that nation from within and without.
Following the melamine-tainted milk scandal, 'leather milk,' was recently
years Chinese dairy producers have been making trips to the local tannery,
collecting the chemical scraps left over from the leather softening process,
putting it into milk, and thereby boosting the milk’s protein content as
measured in tests.
But the chemicals they are adding—hydrolyzed leather proteins, sodium and potassium dichromate, the chemical hexavalent chromium (CrVI)—cause cancer.
The toxic milk has been dubbed “leather milk.” The most vulnerable victims are infants.
The issue had been reported as early as 2005, but recent reports in the Chinese media, along with high-profile denials by the Communist Party that there were any problems, brought it to light again.
Zhejiang Metropolitan Daily reported that five out of eight batches of dairy drinks from Chenyuan Dairy Co., Ltd. in
Hong Kong’s Wenweipo reported as early as 2005 that at least 200 diary factories in
Xinhua reported in July 2005 that in
In March 2009 a site inspection of Chenyuan Diary Co., Ltd. revealed three 20 kg bags of leather hydrolyzed protein, along with 1,300 boxes of tainted dairy products. Similar cases were also reported in
China State Council Food Safety Administration issued a notice on Feb. 13 that since July 2010 they have uncovered 40 illegal dairy product manufacturing and sales facilities. A total of 2,131 tons of tainted milk powder were confiscated.
Social System Broken
Dishonest traders often
add water to milk. The milk is thereby diluted and cannot pass nutrition
analysis tests because of reduced protein content. Substances are then added to
ensure an acceptable protein level.
Xinmin Weekly once quoted a dairy industry insider saying that a ton of protein hydrolysate costs 1,000 yuan. The cost of producing one ton of milk powder—including fresh milk, labor, water, and electricity—is at least 20,000 yuan. However, if protein hydrolysate was added the cost can drop down to 4,000 or 5,000 yuan.
Milk is mostly consumed by children and is the only source of nutrition for infants. The devastating consequences of a previous scandal, in 2008, involving the chemical melamine, caused at least six painful deaths due to kidney stones, and left millions of young children sick, with potential future health problems.
At that time Communist Party authorities covered up the poisonings until the Olympic Games were over.
Professor Guo Yuhua from Tsinghua University Department of Sociology says it’s a problem of
“This is a society where people are poisoning each other,” Guo told
Guo said the social environment in China is rapidly deteriorating, with the deterioration starting at the top with different professions each having their own ways to benefit themselves by hurting others.
“There is no trust in society, and honest people usually are at a disadvantage,” Guo said.
Former head of Guangdong Diary Industry Association, Wang Dingmin, told Xinmin Weekly: “The technology used for the fake products can only come from experts. Many people specifically research and develop this sort of technology and sell it to others. Eventually it spreads all over.”
“Milk is milk. It should not contain anything else,” Chen said.
of melamine-tinted milk powder said they have heard about the “leather milk”
before. They say that the Communist Party only creates new inspection rules
after there is a brouhaha about it, and that they do not proactively take steps
to protect the interests of consumers.
They also complain about the lack of transparency. Jiang Yalin’s child fell sick from drinking melamine-tainted powdered milk. Now she wants to know more about how the inspections are actually done.
“They only talk about inspection, but do not tell us how much ‘leather milk’ has been found. They don’t want to tell us what the damage could be and how bad it can get. When the damage is too big to hide, they make a new policy,” Jiang said.
Regime the Real Problem

the former first Dean of the College of Light Industry & Food Science, of
South China University of
Technology in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, and now a senior food scientist
with a health food company in the U.S.
Gao told The Epoch Times in an email that people don’t matter to the Chinese Communist Party.

In a Monarchy the king, the royal family and their cadre of dukes lords and
earls all blue bloods have historically enjoyed such powers. By the mid 1800’s
all the royal families in Europe through excessive intermarriage, and having
been raised and lived their lives devoid of any work or duties of the common
man became weak sickly and a symbol of excess.
Communism represents a new type of Monarchy, a monarchy of revolutionaries becoming its leaders and its dukes lords and earls are communist party bureaucrats put in charge of towns cities locals and different portions of industry, and the military. In communism there are no coups so that when the people riot and rebel they are ruthlessly crushed by the military and their leaders disappear.
In \Communism the people are deprived of virtually everything and as a reward receive meager foodstuffs clothing and a Spartan apartment, which upon displeasing the state or upon death are loaned then to someone else. So that instead of a workers paradise people work for the state to be able to live, and when they are broken they are unceremoniously replaced as any gear of cog would be in a piece of machinery.
Communist rule consists of a many armed machine that has direct control of
all key form of industry and commerce, of education, down to controlling almost
every aspect of the state’s slave population.
In communism the state become the people’s focus of veneration and
The CCP’s efforts over the years to debase and destroy traditional moral values, and the ongoing persecutions of people of faith and conviction, have also contributed to the downward trend, he said.
“All of this has had the effect of terrorizing and dehumanizing civil society. Chinese people are paying a very heavy price,” he said. “Systemic corruption from the top down is pervasive. People will do anything for money if they think they can get away with it. They don’t care if it hurts anyone.”
