Blurb/Shorttext:
Globalization is a process of interaction and integration among people, companies, and governments of different nations, a process driven by international trade and investment and aided by information technology. Without doubt, present-days, international trades in food play an increasingly important role in provision of sage and nutritious diets for the world's populations. In 2009, more than 51,900 infants and young children in China were hospitalized because of urinary problems. Four deaths among infants have been confirmed. In China's milk scandal, dairy suppliers are accused of Melamine-added. Thus, it is not only a health issue, but refers to social, political, economic and culture discussions. This event just likes a reaction chain that brings voices and debates from various fields and different social levels together. In author's point of view, Melamine milk event does not happen by chance, it is the certain consequence of globalization. Drawing a lesson from this event will shift our views on globalization. Besides, we need joint action both national and international to protects and ensure our rights to health and justice on food trading.
