AltHealthWorks.com published an article about fake rice that has been produced in China. Unbelievably, the rice is being made out of plastic and no one is doing anything about it.
As a health advocate and food researcher I thought to myself, this is actually going WAY too far.
Do you know that ingesting even small amounts of plastic is horrible for the digestive system as well as hormones? Namely, the BPA or chemical in plastic mimic’s estrogen and this hormone skyrockets in the body when BPA is ingested. By ingesting plastic rice you have increased chances to die young of breast cancer.
In fact, China is using their innovative methods to produce cheap technology products, toys and other consumer products and applying that mindset to food that is absolutely dangerous.
It is commonly fish-farmed in China. Moreover, these fish are actually some of the worst, most toxic and unhealthy fish. To explain you more deeply, a tilapia fish eats anything, comparable to a bottom-feeder fish and fish farming is a small pool of waste water where the fish live in.
Bear in mind, it’s one of the worst fish purchases you can buy and it’s typically known that Chinese sea-food farmers won’t even allow their children eat the seafood that they farm. It is estimated that 80% of the Tilapia in the U.S. comes from China.
2. Chinese apple juice
Shockingly, about 50% of the apple juice in the United States is imported from China.
Keep in mind China is the LARGEST pesticide producing country in the world. I recommend completely avoiding the consumption of apple juice.
3. Cod fish
Cod is another type of fish farmed in China. It is also an unhealthy one that lives in it’s own waste. Today, more than 50% of American Cod comes from China.
4. Processed mushrooms
Chinese tainted mushrooms have been found by the US inspectors. Some Chinese manufacturers go so far as to label these processed mushrooms organic in order to increase their profits. About 34% of processed mushrooms are imported from China.
5. Chinese garlic
Chinese tainted garlic has been also found by the US inspectors. In addition, this garlic is sprayed with chemicals more than abundantly and it leaves a bad aftertaste, that of a chemical concoction. Approximately, 31% of garlic sold in the US comes from China.
The sale of Chinese chicken was approved by the US Department of Agriculture in 2013. A lot of food safety experts are concerned with the chicken’s quality since China is a country where avian influenza and food-borne illness are quite common. What’s more, China actually produces more pesticides than any other country in the world and besides that it is also polluted by mass production and industry.
7. Plastic rice
As mentioned previously, fake plastic rice is produced, as well. It is considered that it is made from potatoes and a fake sythetic resin. If this rice is boiled, it stays hard and doesn’t cook like regular rice. Also, it is thought that long-term effects of this rice could be cancerous.
8. Mud that is sold as black pepper
A Chinese vendor collected mud and flour and sold it as black pepper. The Additionally, Chinese don’t have many as a result of diligence in their food and safety regulatory systems, but they are sold in America.
9. Industrial salt
This type of salt is unfit for human consumption, but it was sold as table salt for 13 years! It can trigger reproductive system disorders, hypothyroid problems, and mental and physical issues.
10. Green peas
In 2005, the green peas were found in China and may be still produced today. Furthermore, these fake peas were actually created with soy beans, snow peas, along with green dye and sodium metabisulfite, i.e., a chemical used as bleach and as a preservative.
It is important to know that this dye is banned to use on produce since it may lead cancer, and inhibit the body’s natural ability to absorb calcium. Plus, these green peas don’t soften when boiled and the water turns an unnatural green color. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid green peas from China.
