Today's Tidbit - The Food Oddities of China and How They Mimic Our Own

Yesterday I came across this rather eye-popping piece written by Mark Bittman of the New York Times:

China's Bizarre Food 'Safety' Scene, and Our Own - New York Times, July 6, 2011

Who would have thought that you could make counterfeit eggs (a notion almost as disturbing as this video demonstrating the process) or brew soy sauce from human hair? Then again, who knew that you could become paralyzed because you inhaled too much aerosolized pig's brains at work?

Hungry yet?
