1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Should the government be responsible for ensuring the food safety? (5E Kwan Wing-Hang, Vivian)

The milk scandal has aroused great concern about ensuring food safety. In my opinion, both of the government and food producers should be responsible for ensuring food safety.

We should not blame the government for not safeguarding food safety. Food producers have to ensure the food they produce is safe for the public to consume. They should have the conscience to protect consumers’ interest and, most importantly, health.

On the other hand, the government should monitor food producers and impose penalties if necessary. I suggest the government of setting heavier penalties for those who violates the law and set a higher standard of food safety. More professionals should be employed to test food products so that food safety can be secured.
