quote The study found that the HIV diagnosis rates for gay and bisexual men across age groups increased significantly over the 9-year period of the study. For gay men between the ages of 45 to 54, the rate went up 5 percent, while for men 55 and older it increased 18 percent. The most devastating increase in HIV infection rates was for young gay men between the ages of 13 to 24, for whom the number of yearly diagnoses rose 132 percent.

quote An undercover Dragon Television reporter found that in June 18 tons of chicken skin that was over half a month past its expiry date had been used for chicken nuggets, and that beef more than a month past its expiry had been used for KFC burgers.The meat was pulverized and processed to extend its shelf life for another year, according to the report. Workers told Dragon Television that the meat smelled but ‘eating it wouldn’t kill you.’ According to the South China Morning Post, the Dragon footage shows Shanghai Husi workers ‘picking up food from the floor and throwing it into processing machines.’ Discarded McDonald’s McNuggets were ‘reprocessed until they passed inspection.’
