As the saying goes, illness often finds its way in by the mouth, so people should place enough attention on food security.
Food security problems do not only influence people’s health, but also destroy their confidence on consumption of necessities.
Today citizens are becoming more and more cautious in eating and drinking for fear that they might be poisoned by toxic chemicals.
To eliminate unsafe food products, the government must work out specific laws and regulations to punish those involved with more serious fines and tougher measures.

Addressing food safety concerns can be seen part and parcel of China's needed transition toward a consumer-oriented economy, which is even more imperative now that the country's GDP growth is slowing from historic rates.
Boosting consumer confidence is an essential piece of that puzzle for China—and by extension, a factor for global economic stability.

Have you ever thought of the importance of food security? If so, you may understand what the picture aims to convey. Holding a magnifier, the man is trying to detect the quality of the food in the bowl, in which there are a variety of daily consumptions, such as milk, eggs, fish, vegetables, etc. The cartoon, simple and conspicuous as it is, sets us into considering and pondering its far-reaching connotation behind.
When it comes to this topic, an overwhelming majority of common folks harbor the perspective that it is imperative for the society to ensure food security. Yet is it necessary and reasonable to cling to this traditional view? The answer is positive. Cases to this viewpoint are abundant and within easy reach, but the following examples will suffice. We are living in a society where many businessmen only care about making money at the cost of the health of the public: many restaurants using illegal cooking oil to cook dishes; some irresponsible people always providing cold or the expired take-outs to consumers; also, some agricultural products being over-polluted. Evidently, taking measures to tackle the current situation is urgent.
Nevertheless, what can we do to solve the problems? Some people tend to believe that relevant governments should establish and enforce more stringent laws to regulate the food market; others, however, cling to the perspective that the general public should strengthen the awareness of food security. I am fully convinced that the combination of the above two methods will eventually diminish the negative effects exposed in the news recently.
