threat to public health, perhaps one that could imperil the country's rise. But ironically, government food-safety regulations are making the problem worse. There are too many regulatory agencies trying to enforce overlapping and conflicting regulations. For example, the Commerce Ministry supervises pork slaughterhouses, but beef and poultry slaughterhouses fall under the Agriculture Ministry.

It is probably only a minority of patients with food poisoning who seek formal medical care.
