Chloride is not the same as chlorine dear boy.

Chlorine is used in the early stage of water treatment.
Chloride is added to the treated water in some country.

The problem is not simply about whether chlorine treatment is safe.

Some believe a farm-to-fork approach of avoiding bacteria contamination delivers better public health outcomes than simply allowing chlorine treatment -- because the latter approach would disincentivise industry to put in place proper hygiene practices.  It would be as if pigs were allowed to live in trash instead of properly sanitized environments before being slaughtered and chlorine-washed for the market.

So it is not just the chemical but rather the risk that these chlorine treatments will be seen as the “easy way out” in cleaning meat before marketing.  The emphasis is on the fact that no chlorine rinse will remove all bacteria from meat heavily contaminated as a result of poor hygiene.

chloride is an anion, or a negatively-charged ion.

NaCl or sodium chloride (table salt) is not the one added.  Floride is.

Two Sessions should address the problem of anti social behavior in so many places, giving bad impression about China!  For instance, on high speed trains full of litter,  passengers taking over other passengers'seats and refusing to budge when caught; sleeping on seats on subway train, putting legs up on seats etc, eating n littering on trains and scenic spots, etc etc!  Heavier penalties  for traffic offences like faiing to give way to pedestrians at zebra crossings etc. Current penalties are a joke!
