On the Subject of Panic Buying

I mentioned a while ago that the local Chinese population were freaking out over their supply of salt and the Fukishima Nuclear Reactor.

A week or two ago, the Chinese Government came out and effectively said "Stop it with the panic buying, we've got bloody great stores of the stuff." Adding that "By the way, you're going to need to ingest 1.3kg of salt A DAY to ward off the effects of Iodine radiation."
