They are refining for gelatin, not chromium. Besides, chromium is essential in the human diet.
It  ...

Slight problem - Chromium is used in the tanning process for leather, where it is tightly bound to the collagen - THAT is how they get chromium contamination, as gelatin is made from the collagen extracted from skin, tendon & ligament tissue.

On the "naturally occuring" argument, please provide a link to any peer-reviewed and published study citing a biological requirement for chromium in humans. Just because they stuff it into "health-food supplements", does not make it a necessity for life.

The US Food & Drug Administration recently reduced the recommended daily intake of chromium from 50-200 micro-grams/day to 35 micro-grams/day for adult males, 25 micro-grams/day for adult females.

Also from a quick search, it seems that there have been a grand total of three (3) cases of chromium deficiency reported, all from persons on liquid-only diets. Not a large occurence, when considering it is spread world-wide.

Add to the fact that the dietary aid chromium picolinate has been shown to cause chromosomal defects in hamster ovarian tissue, ref:
Stearns, D. M.; W; P; W (1 December 1995). "Chromium(III) picolinate produces chromosome damage in Chinese hamster ovary cells". Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology 9 (15): 1643–8. PMID 8529845

You ought to be good at that by now.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Ehhh ... ?

And what lie would that be?

Your lie is your whole existence here on this forum. You claim the Chinese media is not reliable
one minute and the next minute you use it as a reference to support one of your arguments.
I know it's tough to keep track of all your lies but for others its easy.
