These days almost everything is made in China and brought to USA. Unfortunately, this country has become famous for its fake products, including food.
And what’s the problem with the plastic rice?
Even small amount of plastic when ingested has terrible consequences for the digestive system and the hormones. The plastic contains a chemical that mimics estrogen and that is why the levels of this hormone in the body increase way too much when plastic is ingested.
To consume plastic rice is as if you are begging to die young from breast cancer. From time to time I hear something crazy like this coming from China and that is why I have become so cautious when it comes to food from China.
That food is being shipped from so far away and anything can happen to it while it is on its way here, it can go bad or become contaminated.
Also there is the information about Chinese companies that do stuff with food like making it fake, and extremely cheap, which is suspicious. Their innovation methods are used for producing technology, toys and all kinds of products which are very cheap and they continue to apply that mindset to food, which is extremely dangerous and harmful.
Here is the list of 10 infamous food products from China:
1. Tilapia Fish
This fish lives in the bottom of the waters and feeds on everything that lies there. Knowing the pollution of China’s waters , air and land it is clear what it eats. 80% of tilapia imported in the USA is from China. It is said that Tilapia is as nutritious as” bacon”.
2. Cod fish
Another kind of fish also grown and farmed in China is the cod fish. Another unhealthy kind that lives on its own waste is this fish that you should avoid, even though 50 percent of this type of fish in the US comes from China.
3. Chinese apple juice
As it is the case with cod fish, 50 percent of the apple juice in the US also comes from China. China is the country that uses the most pesticides in the world and they use it on food. Whether it is for yourself or especially if it is for your children, do not buy this apple juice that is too loaded with sugar. If you want to use another type of apple juice that does not come from China and is not loaded with pesticides, at least mix it with some vegetable juice to avoid increasing of your blood sugar levels.
Almost one third of all processed mushrooms come from China. Because they are grown in improper conditions one should choose American or Canadian mushroom farms.
5. Chinese Garlic
Watch for the shape, weight and the color. 31% of garlic in America is imported from China. Methyl bromide (among others) is used as a pesticide and that makes them dangerous enough. Buy American local products from trusted farmers and consume the strongest natural medicine safely. If you are interested to see how the American garlic and the Chinese ones looks, see the following pictures.
Chicken from China is being sold in the USA from 2013. However, there are some nutritionists and experts on food safety that are concerned about the quality of the chicken because in China there have been many cases of avian influenza and cases of illnesses caused by food. Also, China is producer of the greatest amount of pesticides in the world and is very much polluted from the pesticides, as well as from the industry and the mass production that we don’t know how well is controlled.
7. Plastic rice
China has become popular because it has been said that artificial, plastic rice is being produced there. This rice is said to be made of fake artificial resin and potatoes. When cooked, this rice stays hard and causes difficulties to the digestive system. If consumed long enough, it can lead to cancer after some time.
8. Black Pepper Mud
Yes believe it or not there is such a thing too, in China of course. A man was caught selling mud, dried mud for black pepper. Even though he was caught, you should still check what you are buying.
9. Industrial Salt
This salt has already made it to our kitchens. Be careful and look at the label. If it is from China think again… The problem is that it can cause stroke and heart attack.
10. Green Peas
Yes, fake green peas too.. .Together with soy beans, snow peas, colored with green dye and metabisulfite which is a chemical used to bleach.
