SHOCK­ING

NewsChina - - NETIZEN W@TCH -

Chi­nese ne­ti­zens were stunned at an on­line video clip of a par­ent feed­ing her lit­tle son live tad­poles from a bowl. The par­ent told me­dia that live tad­poles are a good way to im­prove chil­dren's physique, but doc­tors warned they host many dis­ease­caus­ing par­a­sites. What the par­ent said was re­port­edly recorded in the Com­pen­dium of Ma­te­ria Med­ica, a pop­u­lar Chi­nese an­cient book about Chi­nese medic­i­nal herbs. Doc­tors said that mod­ern medicine does not make use of tad­poles, as they can make peo­ple ill. Ne­ti­zens strongly con­demned the par­ent for us­ing her child as a test sub­ject for un­sci­en­tific “folk reme­dies.”
