Ten Foods from China That Are Unsafe to Consume
Tilapia is farmed in China, meaning that they live in small pools that the farmers take care of, allowing them to breed and be killed for a food source. The problem with tilapia is that they will eat anything. They are compared to bottom feeders. These fish are often kept in unsanitary pools, and they consume the waste that is in these pools. Most farmers will not even let their children eat the fish that they farm. Over 80% of tilapia sold in the United States comes from China.
2. Cod Fish
The Cod fish is similar to the Tilapia in that they are both kept in unsanitary conditions. About 50% of the Cod sold in the United States comes from China.
3. Chinese Apple Juice
Surprisingly, 50% of apple juice in the States comes from China. China is the world leader when it comes to pesticides and loose restrictions. They have not even started to restrict what can be on their fruit and vegetable chemical-wise. It is smart to check the labels on food and try to buy locally grown items, but apple juice in particular.
4. Processed Mushrooms
U.S. Investigators have found that some mushrooms from China are toxic. These Chinese companies go as far as to label these mushrooms organic in order to sell them at a higher profit margin. 34% of these mushrooms are from China.
These chickens are not raised in satisfactory conditions. Chickens from China are much more likely to contract influenza and are not safe to consume. This chicken was only approved in 2013 and experts are already thinking of taking it off of the shelves in America
Rice is being made in China that is not real rice. It is made of potato starch and a resin of sorts. In simple terms, this rice is made with plastic byproducts. This plastic rice does not cook like regular rice. It is obviously horrible for the digestive tracts of humans. It is known that consuming this can be the cause of cancer and other horrible illnesses. Watch out for plastic rice.
8. Black and White Pepper
Mud has been collected in China and sold as black pepper, and flour has been sold as white pepper. There are not a lot of regulations on the food in China, and because of that, things like this happen. They have no equivalent to the FDA here in America. This allows them to sell whatever they want under whatever name they want.
9. Table Salt
Chinese industries have in the past sold industrial salt as table salt. Industrial salt is not safe for human consumption and is very harmful to the body. They were selling this as common table salt.
10. Green Peas
Chinese factories were taking a combination of soy beans and snow peas and coating them in harsh chemicals and green dye to make them look like green peas.
The moral of this list is to always check your labels. If a food product was produced in china, there is no saying if the product inside is really what the product on the package say that it is. It is important to tell friends and family this information. These foods can cause cancer or intestinal issues that are not worth the price drops. Whenever possible, try to buy locally produced products. Not only will it support local business, it could possibly save a life.
