不要再吃什麼阿膠了,那是驢子你知道嗎

Updated: Aug 29, 2019

Millions of donkeys are at risk because of rapidly growing demand for ‘ejiao’, a product made from donkey skins used in traditional Chinese medicine. A recent report by the Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organisation predicted that donkeys in Kenya could be effectively wiped out by 2023.

因為阿膠的市場需求快速成長,數百萬計的茅廬有滅絕危機。「東阿阿膠」是從毛驢皮所提煉出來的中藥配方。肯亞農業及畜牧研究組織的報告中預測,2023年以前,肯亞毛驢可能將徹底滅絕。


Donkeys across the globe are being killed for their skins to meet the ever-increasing demand from China. Ejiao or donkey hide glue, is a gelatinous substance made from boiling the hides of donkeys, which is used in traditional Chinese medicines and beauty products. Its manufacturers claim the substance has many health benefits, including reducing wrinkles, curing anaemia, boosting energy, enhancing libido, and shrinking tumours.

世界各國的毛驢遭大量獵殺取皮,以因應中國巨大的市場需求。東阿阿膠是從毛驢皮所提煉出來的凝膠物質,被大量使用在中藥中,認為具養顏美容的效果。製造商聲稱東阿阿嬌對身體有很多好處,包括撫平皺紋、治療貧血、振奮精神、提振性慾並可消減


But there is little scientific evidence to support these claims. The recent growth in the Chinese middle class has led to a surge in consumer demand for ejiao.

但這些療效目前沒有足夠的科學證據支持。中國中產階級的擴張導致消費者對東阿阿嬌需求大增。
