List of 10 Food Products From China To Be Avoided That Are Filled With Plastic And Pesticides

Ingesting even small amounts of plastic is horrible for the human’s digestive system and hormones. The BPA (chemical) in plastic mimic’s estrogen and this hormone skyrockets in the body when BPA is ingested.

Ingest plastic rice and you’re basically asking to die young of breast cancer.

Once in a while we would hear something crazy from China like this and we were always weary of food from China for this reason.

You have to think, not only is the food being shipped from across the world (just think what could happen to food during that traveling time and possible exposure to contamination), but also look at what certain Chinese companies are doing to food: They produce it fake, and as cheap as possible!

China is using its innovative methods to make cheap technology products, toys and other consumer products and is also applying that mindset to food, which is absolutely dangerous!

List of 10 food products from china to be avoided:

Cod fish

1

Cod is a type of fish that is fish-farmed in China. This fish is not healthy and lives in its own waste.
Currently, about 50% of American cod comes from China.

Tilapia fish

2

Tilapia is another type of fish commonly fish-farmed in China. Fish farming is a small pool of waste water that the fish live in .A tilapia fish will eat just about anything! So, these fish are some of the worst, most toxic and unhealthy fish that you can come across. It is one of the worst fish purchases you could buy and it is commonly known that in China the sea-food farmers won’t even let their children eat the seafood that they farm. THIS should trigger your red alert: 80% of the Tilapia in America comes from China!

Chinese apple juice

Approximately 50% of the apple juice sold in the United States again comes from China. China is the LARGEST pesticide producing country in the world and they have not even begun to address pesticide or chemical residue in foods. I recommend that you completely avoid apple juice, for yours and your children’s safety. Fruit juice is too rich in sugar and is better mixed with vegetable juice for your normal blood sugar levels.

Processed mushrooms

U.S. 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 will find that there are many “mystery mushrooms” in China, completely fake. 34% of processed mushrooms are from China. Do your best to know your source, by buying local and true organic food supplies!

Chinese garlic

U.S. food supervisors have also found tainted garlic from China. Garlic from China is sprayed with chemicals more than abundantly and this garlic leaves a bad taste in your mouth and coked food, that of a chemical concoction. 31% of garlic sold in the U.S. is imported from China!

Chicken

In 2013 the U.S. Department of Agriculture approved the sale of Chinese chicken in America. Many food safety experts are concerned with the quality of this chicken as China is a country where avian influenza and food-borne illness are very common. Beyond that, China produces more pesticides than any other country in the world and is polluted by not only that, but also by the mass production industry.

“Plastic” rice

As we have mentioned previously in an article, fake plastic rice is also being produced. It is believed that it is actually made from potatoes and fake synthetic resin. When this rice is boiled, the rice stays hard and does not cook like naturally-grown rice. It is believed that long-term effects of this food could be cancerous.

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. Call it whatever you want and sell it away! The Chinese don’t have a lot of due diligence in their food and safety regulatory systems. Not that these are always great, just look at U.S. ones! We have standards too, but they are very low standards at best.

Green peas

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 for use on produce because it may cause cancer, as well as inhibit the body’s natural ability to absorb calcium. These green peas also didn’t soften when boiled and the water turned in unnatural green color. Again, avoid green peas from China!

In our humble opinion food from China is some of the worst food you can get on the planet. As mentioned, China produces more pesticides than any other country in the world, meaning your food is most likely to be “laced” with pesticides. It is one of the most polluted regions in the entire world. 70% of their rivers are polluted, the air is toxic and the sheer volume production of products there leaves a lot of toxic chemicals and by-products as waste that leak into the environment.

Read this one fact: the air in Beijing is so polluted that breathing it actually does as much damage to the lungs as smoking 40 cigarettes a day, says a new study as of 2015.From China? Just forget about it!

Industrial salt

Industrial salt is unfit for human consumption.Yet industrial salt has been sold as table salt for whole 13 years! Industrial salt can cause mental and physical medical conditions, hypothyroid problems as well as reproductive system disorders.

How can you tell if your garlic, mushrooms or apple juice, are from China?

Well, it is very difficult to tell! For this reason we recommend shopping locally at your farmers market and getting to know your farmer or supplier. Ask questions at your health food or grocery store, and do your research. Use your cell phone to google it in the store!

Jin Shin Jyutsu at Heartland Equine Rescue, Indiana

After the Now Know Myself class in Louisville, KY, was finished Sunday evening, there were some of us that were going to an animal rescue (Heartland Equine Rescue, in Indiana) to help out with a little bit of Jin Shin Jyutsu – if you are in their neighborhood at some point, I’m sure that they will accept your Jin Shin Jyutsu hands too on their animals 🙂

McDonald’s to Add Lab-Grown ‘Chicken’ McNuggets to its Menu

I never eat at McDonald’s, this is yet another reason coming up, why not…
I agree that animals need to be treated much much better, if we are going to eat them, but I don’t think the solution is to grow chicken in labs..

McDonald‘s just announced it will be the first fast food restaurant in the United States to add lab-grown meat to its menu. Following the success of Sergey Brin’s lab-grown burger experiment in London last year, McDonald’s says they will ‘grow’ their own chicken McNuggets in special laboratories across New Jersey. The move is expected to reduce the number of real chickens needed to supply the company’s 35,000 outlets across the globe.

Don Thompson, president and chief executive officer of McDonald’s, cited environmental concerns behind the company’s pledge to add lab-grown chicken McNuggets to their menu.

“With climate change raging out of control, we decided that it doesn’t make sense to use water and feed to keep real chickens alive anymore,” Thompson said. “Plus, animal rights activists have been on our case for a long time about how chickens are treated. This should put their concerns to rest.”

Indeed, Ingrid E. Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) celebrated the announcement.
“Although we think it’s bizarre that future McNuggets will be grown in a lab, we’re relieved to know that chickens no longer have to be sacrificed to feed McDonald’s customers,” Newkirk said. “But we won’t truly be happy until the company stops selling real beef burgers too, since cows suffer in disgusting feedlots across the United States.”

Before they can even think about growing fake beef burgers, McDonald’s must first master the art of making McNuggets grown in a lab taste like chicken. The company is working with scientists to grow the nuggets using stem cells from living chickens.

“We take stem cells from real chickens and add them to lab grown fat,” Thompson revealed. “We can’t tell you the rest of the ingredients that we use to make the McNuggets taste good, but we are here to assure loyal customers that they will be a lot worse than pink slime or that yoga mat stuff that Subway used.”

In response to concerns that people might be grossed out and stop eating at McDonald’s, Thompson said the American public doesn’t care what they eat as long as it’s cheap. In fact, he said, by 2025 every single item on the chain’s menu will be produced in a lab. Yum.
