Statistics must say more by probing properly, says an article in China Youth Daily (excerpts below).

According to an official of the Ministry of Education, more than 30 million students in China are guaranteed a proper diet. This should be praised, but of equal concern must be how many students do not enjoy a proper diet.

CPPCC spokesman Lv Xinhua told the media that 99 percent of domestic milk powder meets quality standards. This provoked heated public discussion. Even if the 99 percent rate is true, it shows that 1 percent of the domestic powder has a quality problem. Considering the huge output of domestic milk powder every year, this 1 percent will directly impact a great number.
