It's probably the same reason US is doing it.  The big money parasites that own the drug companies ...

Do you think China elites have become corrupt to the point to where they would try to remove healthy foods and medicines in order to make even more billions on patented junk food and medicine?

I have to say yes because they do not seem to care one whit for the destitute condition of the poorest Chinese.

The well being of the Chinese people is of no concern to the money grubbers

Capitalism does have the ability to bring out both creativity and greed: the good and the bad.

Agreed: some capitalism is needed, at least for now to be able to compete with the international economy.

Hm... vitamins and other suplements are for sure less healthy then natural ones, eaten in well balanced diet, but... well ballanced diet for all year long is much more expensive.

Cutting off cheap suplements - more patients should go to the doctors (and pay them) to have prescripted suplements and vitamins, or will not buy it and soon suffer for many kinds of avitaminosis etc.

Off course it is MUCH BETTER to change dietary customs for all population... but it is impossible to do it by the one decission by the government.

If that decission will become reality...

"Health food" producers will notice increase of orders (multiply)... from those who can pay for it...
Pharmaceutical concerns will meet temporary loss of orders for OTC suplements...
Then peak of orders for prescripted suplements...
Medical sector will note multiplied number of visits in "familly doctors"...
about 70% of population (that do not have enough money to change diet, pay for the doctors visit in case of ordering supplements etc...) will soon suffer avitaminosis...
Then - medical industry will have peak for curing avitaminosis effects for those who can pay, est - will suffer...

resume:

average US citizen, who eats "beans and pancakes with syrup" on breakfast, burger for lunch and pizza for dinner will pay much more - in money or own health

doctors will gain much more for both short, and long time horizon

pharmacist will first loose some, then gain the same money (this time from prescripted suplements)

"healthy food" producers will gain much more...

conclusion:

bussiness again...
