I'm a native Chinese here, who really love tea
. But it is not real in China, our government pay more attention to food inspection. Rice here is health, so as tea, toufu, water, vegetable and lots of things.
I am sure my view is biased... because I have a Chinese stomach. Since I currently spend very limited time in China, I constantly miss the fresh vegetable, fruits, tofu and a lot of other things in China. Food scandals do exist in China, sometimes they can be so bad. But yeah usually foreign media only care about the bad food in China since they would be stressed by corporations if they focus more on things like bovine growth hormone.
I hope my view is not biased about Mexican food. I spent a month in Mexico last winter, and missed the fresh vegetable, fruits, meat and eggs there since then. It's not that I can't get the fresh food here, but not at every street corner store, not at affordable (to me) prices, and not with that broad varieties. When I told my friends how nice Mexican groceries are, very often I got the question, "is the food there safe?" Well, I did get some stomach flu and stayed in bed for a whole day. And I know this happens to a lot of travelers. But then I was "strengthened" and kept enjoying all kinds of food in the rest of my trip. I won't hesitate to get myself another stomach flu if I can get another month of fresh Mexican food
Many people in developing world consciously know what's missing in their life, and therefore envy life in developed world. On the other hand, many people in developed world tend to think "we" are safer, cleaner and better than "them". But many people may not know what they miss...
