Q: Should I stay away from dairy products in China?

I know there has been many scandal in China with yoghurt and milk. Is it safer today in China to simply not eat dairy products?

I have never had a problem, but do keep an eye on dates as many supermarkets don't think twice about making money from rotten milk.

I drink the milk (usually long life imported from Australia) and the yoghurty drink things all the time. I have had no problems. If you are worried about tainted products you better add many things to your list including bananas treated with antifreeze to ripen then quicker and some other chemical that was being used to make strawberries bigger to name a few. Potentially anything is a chance of having something added.

There is scandal and problems with every item of food and drink in China. It's just one of the many things that you just shouldn't think about. Nothing is safe, so just enjoy it while you can.

I always have the pasteurized milk in the little pouches, like kool aid comes in. Never had a problem.

you can sometimes find an imported brand (like French milk) cheaper than Chinese milk. So don't hesitate.

During 4 years here, I have never drink any Chinese milk....(well that's not completely true, because a hot chocolate at Starbuck's or any other coffee shop uses Chinese milk)...:(

you should ideally stay away from all dairy products in all countries. things like cow milk, butter, cheese, and ice cream are not meant for human consumption. pin down a legit dr, and he will tell u. theres articles written about it all over the internet

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
