Recently, a quite alarming article has been published on AltHealthWorks.com for the false rice in the US, produced in China.
The rice, believe it or not, was made out of plastic, but after the announcement of this knowledge, the experts, as far as we know it, did nothing.
Plastic rice? It sounds dangerous because swallowing even a small amount of plastic is terrible for the digestive system and hormones. BPA (Bisphenol A is a chemical compound with two phenol functional groups) in the plastic mimics the estrogen, and this hormone reacts violently in the body when it swallows the bisphenol. Consuming plastic rice basically means the risk of early death from cancer.
It is not uncommon to hear something crazy from China, but information on suspicious food is always particularly unpleasant.
China uses its own innovative methods for cheaper production of technology products, toys and other goods to the consumer, but thinking that way about food is even more dangerous.
We are very concerned about the fact that some companies are willing to go far in the race for profit. These are 10 types of food that are particularly dangerous.
Tilapia, also known as “water chicken” is commonly cultivated fish in China and one of the most dangerous and most healthy fish that can be encountered.
It is grown in small pools of sewage, it is resistant, and selective breeding scientists have obtained today’s industrial type: big, meaty fish with a small head and a small tail, with internal organs that enable rapid absorption of food.
It is simply grown and is perfect for production because it reaches a sale weight of one kilogram for about 9 months. Americans eat more than 250 million kilograms of tilapia, everyone loves it, especially schools and hospitals, because there is no taste of fish.
Compared to other species, tilapia contains relatively small amounts of healthy fatty acids – omega 3. In China, there is almost no oversight on the cultivators, and they export it frozen, in packages with carbon monoxide to preserve the color and the fish look fresh and melts before the merchandising.
- Atlantic cod
Atlantic cod is just another type of fish being grown in China. This popular fish is not healthy because it doesn’t live in the sea but in its own waste. Currently, more than half cod which is marketed in the US comes from China.
- Apple juice
Believe it or not, half of the requested apple juice sold in the US comes from China, which is the largest producer of pesticides in the world and there is no practice for showing information on all ingredients and level of contamination of food. Fruit juice, in addition, is extremely rich in sugar.
- Processed mushrooms
US examiners found infected mushrooms from China. Some producers in China are willing to label processed mushrooms as organic just to increase their income.
But even by “Googling”, you can easily see that there are numerous, completely false “properties of mushrooms” in China, where even 34% of processed mushrooms come on the market. Make it the best you can – if you love mushrooms then buy local or really organic ones!
10 years ago, there were cases where inspection services would find infected garlic from China but even today, its sale is not completely excluded.
Fact is that garlic, is very extensively sprayed with chemicals. Thusly treated, it leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Chinese garlic has taken over the Western markets, and even a third sold in the US comes from China.
In 2013, the US Department of Agriculture has approved the sale of Chinese chicken in America. Many experts are concerned about this because it comes from a country where avian flu and diseases transmitted by food are still present.
Moreover, in this overpopulated country, the environmental standards are very low and the pollution is highlighted in mass production and dirty industry.
- Plastic rice
It is thought that the false, plastic rice is made from potatoes and synthetic resin. When cooked, it remains stiff and not as ordinary rice. It is thought that the long-term effects of this food can be carcinogenic.
- Dirt – sold as black pepper
Peppers in history served even as a substitute for money, and today suppliers in China tend to collect dirt (toxic?) and sell it as black pepper. With the addition of flour, it is offered as white pepper too. The logic is, if you sell things away from home you can call them as you please!
Especially in China, where there isn’t any great responsibility and attention to food safety or regulatory systems in place.
- Industrial salt
Industrial salt is inappropriate for human consumption but be aware that on the markets, it appears as table salt. Industrial salt can cause mental and physical problems, especially problems with the slow work of the thyroid gland, as well as disorders of the reproductive system.
Another crazy unreal product, false peas, was created in 2005. False peas are created from soy, green and sodium metabisulphite (chemicals used for bleaching and as a preservative).
This color is not allowed to be used on products because it can cause cancer, and prevent natural ability to absorb calcium. The peas will also not soften when cooked, and the water gets unnaturally green. So, avoid the peas from China.
Some of the worst types of food on the planet come from China. That country produces more pesticides than any other country in the world, which means that the food is very likely spiced up with chemicals. It is one of the most contaminated areas in the world with 70% of polluted rivers, poisoned air and production full of toxic substances, and by-products as waste penetrate the surrounding area.
A study last year showed that the air in Beijing is also polluted and causes damage to the liver and lungs, same as if you’re smoking 40 cigarettes a day.
How to avoid all of it if you consume apple juice, onions or mushrooms from China? The only way to secure yourself is if you purchase local products of known manufacturer or supplier.
