Chinese Chocolates and Milk ban extended

India has extended the ban on import of milk and its products, including chocolates, from China till laboratories at ports for testing presence of toxic chemical melamine are upgraded. Good Move.

If these things are banned, why dont we also ban chinese ethylene that is being used to ripen fruits openly.

Otherwise, please share details of why chinese ethylene is safe for artificial ripening of Indian fruits? more

In this world of globalisation and liberilisation, there can not be barriers to international trade. Hence, we can not stop the inflow or outflow, unless there are reasons for that. more  
In an open market economy, it's not so simple to ban any imported product from any country, it needs strong evidences & statistics & data to verify and establish the fact. After that, decision can be taken after holding meetings & dicussions at appropriate level. Otherwise, any whimsical decision may harm India's business interest. One has to follow the guidelines & rules framed under WTO and trade agreements. more  
We have stopped buying fruits in Navi Mumbai as most of them are artificially ripened. As there are any number of videos on food adulteration, do not understand why authorities do not take action as such malpractices are openly done. Or is it the famous Indian underhand dealings that keep our inspectors from acting? more  
Sujata, Do u have any data on 1 lakh people used ethylene ripened fruits and another 1 lakh ate naturally ripened fruit. The 1st lot fell ill & died early compared 2nd lot??
Without sufficient proof/Data, some unscientific people have fad of criticizing everything that is artificial. I appreciate your concern for public health but is your opinion true ? Backed by sufficient proof/Data ? more
