Chapter 574 The Keeper of Yaowang Mountain Calling for Help.
Just when there were loads of college candidates applying for TCM colleges all over the country, there was also a piece of news on the Internet.
The six companies led by Siqi Pharmaceutical Company and Taikang Pharmaceutical Company received an official notice of suspending business from the National Food and Drug Administration, and they also received fine bills that required an enormous amount of money!
With the announcement of the news, some of the black-hearted drug producers, who thought they wouldn’t be investigated and still tried to make problem drugs, restrained themselves one after another.
Although it seemed to be a good thing, this was a huge blow for the Chinese Medicine market. It caused the whole Chinese Medicine market to be bleak, and there was not much improvement in the stock market.
Everyone knew that the effect of the Chinese Medicine incident was about to come to an end.
It was estimated that the effect of this incident on the Chinese Medicine market would be slowly eliminated as time went by.
In the reading room of the library at the University of Jiangjing Chinese Medicine, Fang Qiu asked, “Mr. Xu, what’s this?”
Not long after he came, Xu Miaolin took out a file folder and handed it to him.
“Take a look yourself.” Xu Miaolin motioned Fang Qiu to open it.
Upon hearing that, Fang Qiu opened the file and took out a stack of documents.
“This is the internal information I spent a lot of effort getting.”
Xu Miaolin said, “What you see is what everyone can see. What you can’t see is the most real thing.”
Fang Qiu raised his eyebrows and read the data carefully.
“Is this what the Food and Drug Administration found out?” Fang Qiu’s eyes widened after he read one page.
“That’s right.” Xu Miaolin nodded and said, “This is what they’ve gotten in a week’s investigation. If they continue to spend more effort in the investigation, you will see something more terrible.”
Fang Qiu was shocked.
The file clearly stated that various kinds of dirty works of the Chinese Medicine industry had been found by the National Food and Drug Administration in the last week. Judging from these files, the real pharmaceutical market was much worse than Fang Qiu had imagined!
The most critical thing was these files used several pages to mark the unqualified drugs that had been found in the last week. Glancing at the figures, Fang Qiu found that there were untold unqualified drugs.
“My friend who gave me the internal information asked me to send you a message.” Xu Miaolin said to Fang Qiu.
“What is it?” Fang Qiu asked.
“He said that if you hadn’t suddenly launched an attack and caused them to investigate deeply under the pressure of public opinion, they really wouldn’t know that the Chinese Medicine circle in Huaxia could be so shady!”
Speaking of this, Xu Miaolin sighed again and continued, “Although they have discovered these problems, they can’t publicly announce it at all. Once these problems are leaked, there will inevitably be immeasurable consequences.”
“Psst… ” Fang Qiu took a deep breath as he listened to Xu Miaolin and looked at the information. He was furious.
Of course, what made him angry was not that the materials and the inside story could not be made known to the public, but that he was angry with those black-hearted drug producers. They were treating human lives as a child’s play!
No wonder there were numerous diseases in today’s society, which were mainly caused by these black-hearted drug producers!
“Don’t these people have any conscience?” Fang Qiu asked Xu Miaolin.
“They are businessmen.”
Xu Miaolin shook his head and said, “Chinese Medicine is looking for the cure while businessmen are looking for profit!”
Speaking of this, he sighed and said, “The revival of Chinese Medicine still has a long way to go!”
Fang Qiu frowned.
The fury in his heart gradually dissipated.
That was right.
That was exactly what this era and society looked like.
He wanted to revive Chinese Medicine. What he needed to change were these things that made him angry.
If it weren’t for these things that made him angry, the Chinese Medicine wouldn’t have declined and wouldn’t have wanted a revival.
“Cheer up.” Xu Miaolin patted Fang Qiu gently on the shoulder and said, “Work harder. You have already done a good job now.”
Upon hearing that, Fang Qiu bit his lips and wanted to say something.
But at this moment, the phone in his trouser pocket suddenly rang. “Beep, beep, beep…”
He took out his phone to take a look and found that the call was made by the keeper of Yaowang Mountain.
“Hello?” Fang Qiu picked up the phone.
“Is it Fang Qiu?” A familiar voice came from the other end of the line.
“Yes, I am.” Fang Qiu nodded at once.
“That’s great. That’s great.” The keeper of Yaowang Mountain nodded continuously, repeating the same sentence several times. He then said hesitantly, “I, I want to treat you guys a meal.”
“What?” Fang Qiu was stunned.
“Bring Zhu Benzheng, Sun Hao, and Zhou Xiaotian together tonight. Can you guys come together?” the keeper of Yaowang Mountain said.
Fang Qiu was confused, “What’s the matter?”
“No, I’m fine.” The keeper of Yaowang Mountain said hesitatingly, “Well, when I left school, you guys invited me to have a meal. Today, I also treat you to have a meal. Are you… available?”
“Yeah, of course.” Fang Qiu immediately nodded and said, “Please send me the address. I’ll go and ask them to come right now.”
After that, Fang Qiu hung up the phone.
Xu Miaolin asked, “What’s wrong?”
Fang Qiu replied, “The keeper of Yaowang Mountain said that he wanted to invite my roommates and me to have a meal. He sounded strange. It seems that he has something to tell me.”
Xu Miaolin said, “Go and have a look. After all, he has taught you a lot of things.”
“Yeah.” Fang Qiu nodded and immediately turned to leave. He went back to the dormitory and called Zhu Benzheng and the others.
When they heard that someone was treating them to a meal, Zhu Benzheng, Sun Hao, and Zhou Xiaotian’s eyes lit up right away.
But when they heard it was the keeper of Yaowang Mountain, the three of them were puzzled.
After all, the keeper of Yaowang Mountain left the school so as to make more money to buy a house for his child. He should be saving money. Why would he suddenly invite them to have a meal?
The three of them also felt that something must go wrong with the keeper of Yaowang Mountain.
After taking a taxi, the four of them rushed to the hotel appointed by the keeper of Yaowang Mountain.
Soon, they arrived at a medium-sized restaurant.
It looked kind of luxurious, but it was not expensive judging from the roll-up banner standing at the gate.
It seemed that the keeper of Yaowang Mountain might have spared many efforts to choose this restaurant.
As soon as the four people got out of the car, the keeper of Yaowang Mountain immediately came out to greet them.
Looking at Fang Qiu and the other three, the keeper of Yaowang Mountain laughed and said, “Come on, come on in.”
As he spoke, he led the four people into the restaurant and sat down in front of the table he had reserved.
“The dishes have been ordered, but they haven’t been cooked yet. I’ll ask them to cook now,” the keeper of Yaowang Mountain said with a smile.
“Wait a minute.”
Fang Qiu stopped him and said, “There’s no rush. We haven’t seen each other for a long time. Let’s talk for a while.”
“But…” The keeper of Yaowang Mountain was a little hesitant.
“Sir, come on, sit down. We are not hungry. Let’s talk for a while and then eat.” Zhu Benzheng also opened his mouth to persuade him.
“All right then.” The keeper of Yaowang Mountain nodded and sat down.
“Why did you treat us to a meal so abruptly? What’s the matter?” Fang Qiu asked directly without beating around the bush.
“Yes, I do have something to ask you.” The keeper of Yaowang Mountain nodded.
Fang Qiu said, “Go ahead.”
“Here’s the thing.” The keeper of Yaowang Mountain sighed lightly and said, “After I came out of school to do another job, I paid the downpayment and bought the house for my son and my daughter-in-law. My son and daughter-in-law live in a new house, but they didn’t have a child for a long time. However, there was no problem when they went to the hospital for physical examinations. So I thought whether you could see them. You know, I only know about some herbs. And the most famous people I know are you guys.”
Upon hearing that, Fang Qiu and the other three roommates finally heaved sighs of relief.
It turned out to be this matter!
“It’s not a big deal.” Sun Hao raised his hand and patted on Fang Qiu’s shoulder, saying, “Just leave it to Fang Qiu. He is so good at gynecology. You don’t know that, right? He was famous for feeling the pulse for women from the very beginning.”
Zhou Xiaotian and Zhu Benzheng burst out laughing.
Fang Qiu, on the other hand, was completely speechless.
Why were these words so unpleasant to the ear?
Fang Qiu immediately nodded. Then, he thought for a while and glanced at his three roommates who were waiting to gobble up. He then said righteously, “This is such an important thing. Why are you still waiting to eat? Let’s go and have a look first.”
As soon as he said that, the faces of his roommates changed. They all turned their heads and stared at Fang Qiu as if they were saying, “Are you a fool?”
The keeper of Yaowang Mountain also persuaded him to eat first, but Fang Qiu insisted on his opinion.
In the end, as the keeper of Yaowang Mountain was quite pleasant, Fang Qiu followed behind him and walked toward a neighborhood nearby with his three roommates who were extremely depressed.
Soon, under the lead of the keeper of Yaowang Mountain, the four came to a residential house.
The person who answered the door was a young man in his 20s.
“Dad, these are?”
The young man glanced at the four of them. As soon as he finished asking, his eyes fell on Fang Qiu’s face. He suddenly shouted as if he had been shocked, “Fang Qiu? Are you Fang Qiu?”
“Nice to meet you.” Fang Qiu nodded with a smile.
“This is my son, Zhao Shiyuan.”
The keeper of Yaowang Mountain hurriedly introduced, “You can just call him Xiao Zhao.”
“Yes, yes, yes. You can just call me Xiao Zhao.”
Zhao Shiyuan immediately nodded in agreement.
“No, I can’t. Mr. Zhao.”
Fang Qiu shook his head with a smile and said, “Your son is older than us. Let’s call him Brother Zhao.”
“All right, all right,” the keeper of Yaowang Mountain said with a smile.
As he heard Fang Qiu’s address of his father, Zhao Shiyuan was immediately shocked. He didn’t expect that his father who had worked in the school would actually know Fang Qiu and invite him to his home.
His father was so powerful!
“Come on. Come in and have a seat.”
Zhao Shiyuan opened the door with excitement and invited Fang Qiu and the others into the room.
His father was so awesome this time. With Fang Qiu’s help, he might be able to figure out the reason why his wife wasn’t able to have a baby.
“Go and get your wife. Let Fang Qiu have a good look at her.”
The keeper of Yaowang Mountain urged.
“All right.” Zhao Shiyuan nodded, and then immediately shouted at the top of his lungs, “Honey, honey, come out and see who is coming.”
Soon, a woman in her mid-20s walked out.
“Dad, you’re back?” The woman greeted the keeper of Yaowang Mountain with a smile and then looked at Fang Qiu and the other three.
As soon as her eyes fell on Fang Qiu, she was immediately stunned!
