Traditional Chinese Medicine
Eating shark fin soup is one of the distinguishing habits of sick backward Chinese culture.
Traditional Chinese culture dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368 -1644) considered shark fin one of the eight treasured foods from the sea and since then have been traditionally served at dinner parties to express the host’s respect for his guests, particularly for Chinese weddings.
Traditional Chinese Medicine should be banned in Australia. It relies on animal cruelty worse than animal experimentation. The importation of TCM animal products should also be banned from Australia since it is illegal trade in wildlife. This would send a clear message that
practices involving animal cruelty and wildlife trade are not tolerated in Australia.
