No China Diet: An Extraordinary Amount of PR

So what you're going to see from now until the 2008 Olympics in Beijing is a massive PR effort on the part of the Chinese government to assure the world that there are no human rights violations, Chinese workers are happy, the soil, rivers, and air are clean, and all is right in the world: Majority of Chinese Goods Up to Standards

It's certainly worth noting that the US FDA also stops products imported from Mexico, India, and the Dominican Republic from entering the US for reasons of salmonella and filth. It's not just China. But that certainly doesn't make the situation any better.

There's also some manipulation in the article in terms of numbers. Kudos to you if you point out what doesn't make sense....
