VietNamNet Bridge – Scandals related to contaminated and unsafe food in recent years have become an issue of major public concern as consumers fear the health consequences. Bo Xuan Hiep reports. Shopping at a supermarket last weekend, Nguyen Thi Yen Nga of HCM City faced a wide array of food items, having no idea what was safe to eat. Even though she had checked the labels about the origin of the products, she doubted that all of her purchases were "clean or safe". "I’ve heard the news on TV and newspapers as well as on Facebook about cattle fed with chemicals and greens sprayed with chemicals being sold at markets," she said.

Recent reports indicate that unsafe food is believed to be one of the causes behind the higher cancer rate in recent years. Experts have warned that unhealthy lifestyles, non-certified foods and overuse … [Read more...]

A scene taken from a video shows a 2-year-old boy locked outside a classroom in Lang Son Province as his teachers punished him for not taking a nap.

A video that went viral more than a month ago shows the women pushing the boy out the backdoor to punish him for not taking a nap.

Old brick kilns damaging environment in Bac Kan

BAC KAN (VNS) — Nearly 80 old brick kilns have caused serious environmental pollution in the northern province of Bac Kan, but many obstacles stand in the way of eliminating them, local authorities said. Phieng My Village in Huyen Tung Ward in Bac Kan City has only 15 households, but those households operate eight brick kilns at all hours of the day and night. A Vietnam News Agency correspondent reported that smoke released from the kilns caused issues, and roads have become seriously damaged by overloaded automobiles that transport bricks through the village. The village has 1ha of land for growing rice, but the low quality of the land has rendered it an unsuccessful crop. The remaining 40ha of land in the village is suitable for manufacturing bricks, and brick kilns have been built over the past 10 years. Tran Thi Cu, a resident in the village, said she has made bricks for 10 years. She used to go to China with hopes of finding a better job, but she did not succeed, so she … [Read more...]
