We all know China is a great country food-wise, but did you know that China produces foods filled with pesticides, plastic and cancer causing chemicals?
We believe that one Asian country has gone too far! Yes, China produces foods filled with a lot of harmful compounds, such as: pesticides, plastic and cancer causing chemicals! Next time you buy any kind of food from China, be extremely careful when it comes to the following foods:
1. Cod Fish
Cod is a type of fish that is fish farmed in China. This fish is not healthy and lives in it’s own waste. Currently just over 50% of American Cod come’s from China.
2. Chinese apple juice
Believe it or not approximately 50% of the apple juice sold in the United States come’s from China. China is the largest pesticide producing country in the world and they haven’t even begun to address pesticide or chemical residue on foods. We recommend completely avoiding apple juice, for yourself and your children. Fruit juice is too rich in sugar and is better mixed with vegetable juice for your blood sugar levels.
In 2013 the US Department of Agriculture approved the sale of Chinese chicken in America. Since China is a country where avian influenza and food-borne illness are common, many food safety experts are concerned with the quality of this chicken. Beyond that, China produces more pesticides than any other country in the world and is polluted by not only that but mass production and industry.
4. Mud (sold as black pepper)
A vendor in China collected mud and sold it as black pepper, and also took flour and sold it as white pepper. The thing is, he called it whatever he wanted and sold it away. The Chinese don’t have a lot of due diligence in their food and safety regulatory systems.
5. Chinese garlic
Food inspectors have also found tainted garlic from China. Garlic from China is sprayed with chemicals more than abundantly and this garlic leaves a bad aftertaste, that of a chemical concoction. 31% of Garlic sold in the US is from China.
Did you know that China produces foods filled with harmful chemicals like the ones mentioned in the above foods? Below 5 more harmful foods from China:
6. Tilapia fish
Tilapia is commonly fish-farmed in China. These fish are some of the worst, most toxic and unhealthy fish that you can come across. A Tilapia fish will eat anything, comparable to a bottom-feeder fish and fish farming is a small pool of waste water that the fish live in. It’s one of the worst fish purchases you could buy and it’s commonly known that in China the sea-food farmers won’t even let their children eat the seafood that they farm, that should tell you something. 80% of the Tilapia in America come’s from China.
7. Plastic rice
Yes, you read right, China produces fake plastic rice. It is believed that it is actually made from potatoes and a fake sythetic resin. When boiled the rice stays hard and doesn’t cook like regular rice. It is believed that long-term effects of this food could be cancerous.
8. Green peas
Fake green peas in China were found in 2005, and may be still produced today. These fake peas were created with snow peas, soy beans, along with green dye and sodium metabisulfite (a chemical that is used as bleach and as a preservative). This dye is banned to use on produce because it may cause cancer, as well as inhibit the body’s natural ability to absorb calcium. These green peas also don’t soften when they’re boiled and the water turns in an unnatural green color. So, please avoid green peas from China.
9. Industrial salt
Industrial salt is unfit for human consumption yet it was sold as table salt for 13 years! You should know that industrial salt can cause both mental and physical issues, hypothyroid problems as well as reproductive system disorders.
10. Processed mushrooms
US inspectors have found tainted mushrooms from China. Some manufacturers in China go so far as to label these processed mushrooms organic to increase their profits. If you do a google search you’ll find that there are many “mystery mushrooms” in China, completely fake. 34% of the processed mushrooms are from China. So next time you want to buy mushrooms, make sure that you know the source and that they’re organic.
