White powder brings dying fish to life

China’s social media is abuzz with talk of dying fish being “brought back to life”. The half-dead fish are returning to life after a white powdery chemical is added to their water. After heated discussions online and rumors stating that consuming these fish could lead to cancer, CCTV journalist interviewed Li Xiaozheng, vice president from Guangxi Fisheries Science Research Institute, to find out the facts. Li has verified the powder to be sodium peroxide.
