10 Toxic Foods Made In China That Are Filled With Plastic, Pesticides And Cancer Causing Chemicals
There have been numerous reports in the media about the dangers of the toxic plastic rice from China, yet the problem still remains. The artificial rice can damage your health and have serious consequences! The BPA from the plastic imitates the estrogen and raises the estrogen levels in the body. Even worse, this plastic is used for many Chinese products which can endanger our health.
- Tilapia fish
The Tilapia fish is usually farmed in pools of waste water in China. These fish are the lowest quality, worst kind of fish that you can find. It eats almost anything and. The Chinese people never eat it, so that should be an indicator of how bad this fish is. 80% of the Tilapia fish on the American market originates from China.
- Cod fish
Like the Tilapia, the Cod fish is also farmed in China. It is a bad quality fish that lives in its own waste. Over 50% of Cod fish originates from China.
- Chinese apple juice
Over 50% of the apple juice sold in the USA is from China. China creates the most pesticides on the planet and they don’t even bother to address it on labels. We recommend drinking only natural, raw juice bought from a local farm you trust.
- Processed mushrooms
Chinese poisonous mushrooms have recently been discovered in the USA. The manufacturers from China branded them as a natural product! 34% of the mushrooms originate from China – avoid them! Try some local, raw and organic mushrooms.
- Chinese garlic
FDA inspectors have recently discovered poisonous garlic from China. The garlic is overdosed with chemicals and has an awful aftertaste. 31% of garlic sold in the US comes from China.
The US Department of Agriculture permitted the sale of Chinese chicken in the US in 2013. But, many experts are worried about the quality of this chicken from China – it is a country where avian flu is common. As we already mentioned, China produces pesticides more than any country in the world and is highly polluted, so the quality of the chicken originating from there is questionable.
- Plastic rice
This rice is believed to be made of potatoes and fake synthetic resin. When it heats up, the rice stays hard and does resemble normal, natural rice. Eating this artificial rice for a longer period can cause serious health issues.
- Mud (sold as black pepper)
Can you believe it? A merchant in China collected mud and sold it as black pepper! The Chinese are really not careful with their regulatory systems!
- Industrial salt
Industrial salt is not meant to end up in our meals, yet it was sold as table salt for quite a while! It can lead to serious mental and physical health issues, and cause harm to the thyroid and reproductive system as well.
- Green peas
Fake green peas from China may still be sold today! They are made with snow peas, soy beans, green color and sodium metabisulfite (a synthetic used as bleach and additive). The color used has been proved as cancerous, and hinders the body’s ability to absorb calcium. The Chinese green peas do not cook like the natural ones, and paint the water green because of the fake color.
China produces the greatest number of pesticides on the planet, so if you bought Chinese products or food they are likely to have ended up on it as well. China is at the top of the list of most polluted countries. The rivers and air are contaminated, and everything produced there has poisonous chemicals on it. The air in Beijing for example is so polluted that it equals to smoking 40 cigarettes a day! So it’s really recommended to avoid the food originating from China.
