The appeals of the four major referendum cases at the end of the year are all denying the established policies of the ruling party. However, among them, "Protecting Algae Reefs" and "Banning Pigs" have won the support of many pro-green activists. When arguing about the referendum issues, they either scolded the DPP for betrayal, or they advocated their own moral legitimacy. In short, the referendum was shaped as a showdown between ideals and XX (compromise, speculation...). After this period of discussion, we know that the popular database government has made a lot of efforts for the values that the referendum proclaimed to defend (ecology, food safety); ), the people of Taiwan will pay a heavy price (the Executive Yuan said). And these were ignored intentionally or unintentionally by promoters who refused to compromise. Humans have been using additives in food for a long time, as have nitrates/nitrites, Which have been used for thousands of years in both salt and sugar, and which can be deadly or carcinogenic. Considering the dosage and dietary habits, these supplements (and many others) are far more harmful to human health than ractopamine only added to the feed. Similarly, any human activity will inevitably have an impact on the ecological environment, and the absolute standards demanded by the algae reef protection group are simply impossible to achieve.
