As incredibly as it may sound, an article published some time ago spoke of the production of fake rice in China, made out of plastic! What is even more shocking about it all is the fact that no one does a thing to prevent it!
The ingestion of even small amounts of plastic seriously harms the digestive system, as well as hormones. The BPA (chemical) in plastic mimic’s estrogen and the levels of the hormone tremendously increase in the body when BPA is ingested.
This is only one finding that should assure you to be reserved about the food produced in China, however. Regarding the Chinese innovative procedures that they use to make cheap technology products, toys and other consumer products, we believe it is dangerous enough even to think about their application to food.
China is undoubtedly one of the most polluted regions in the entire world and produces more pesticides than any other country in the world, meaning your food is most likely to be laced with pesticides. First of all, it is a fact that the air in China is toxic. Research found that the air in Beijing, China, is so polluted that breathing it actually does as much damage to the lungs as smoking 40 cigarettes a day.
70% of its rivers are polluted as well, and the sheer volume production of products there leaves a lot of toxic chemicals and by-products as waste. These leak into the environment and pollute it to a seriously high extent.
These are only part of the numerous indications that foods produced in China are perhaps one of the worst choices you can make, for they may seriously harm your health.
This is a list of 10 foods produced in China that should not be part of your menu:
Indeed, plastic rice is being produced and it is believed that its effects could be cancerous. It is said to be actually made from potatoes and a fake synthetic resin, but it doesn’t cook like the regular rice, as it stays hard after boiling.
Tilapia is commonly fish-farmed in China, for 80% of the Tilapia in America comes from China. It is one of the worst, most toxic and unhealthy fish that you can come across. Farming leaves fish in extremely bad conditions, for they are placed in a small pool of waste water, and they actually eat anything there during their development process. Being aware of this, the sea-food farmers won’t let their own children eat the seafood that they farm.
