People’s Daily carried an article which stated that, according to statistics that the China Consumers Association released, 70 percent of Chinese consumers are not happy about the domestic health food market and over 60 percent of consumers don’t trust the advertising. They feel that the market is full of fake products and false advertising. The article used liquor as an example. It said that some of the manufacturers claimed that their liquor products provided health remedies. However, investigation results revealed that, in 2015, 51 types of “healthy liquor” brands falsely claimed health benefits and used illegal additives in making their products.
