People everywhere are avoiding food imports from China, and it’s easy to understand why.
As the old adage goes, ‘‘you are what you eat.’‘ But once you find out how deadly your regular meals can be in China, that old adage gets a completely new meaning all of a sudden.
Yes, China managed to turn some of our harmless foods into a frightening test of one’s fortitude. And you won’t believe your eyes once you find out what these 10 deadliest foods in China are – starting with probably the most basic of them all – rice.
1. Plastic Rice
Made from fake synthetic resin, China is producing ”plastic rice” for mass consumption and according to some reports, long-term effects of this could be cancerous to the human body. When this rice is boiled, it won’t cook like naturally-grown rice. Instead, it stays tough and hard.
2. Cod Fish
50% of American cod comes from China and as far as the fish that come out there goes, they’re unhealthy and living in their own waste, making them unsuitable for human consumption.
3. Tilapia Fish
Another type of fish in China that is not advisable to eat. Since these fish are also living in their own waste and would eat just about anything, they’re some of the most toxic fish that can be served on your dinner plate. It’s also troubling that 80% of the tilapia fish in America come from China – this premise alone would make anyone rethink their food choices entirely.
4. Chinese Apple Juice
If the billing of ”Chinese Apple Juice” doesn’t already bother you, the fact that China is the largest pesticide producing country in the planet should. 50% of the apple juice in the United States come from China so, unless you want to down a glass of rich pesticide, I’d stay away.
5. Processed Mushrooms
Sometimes laughably labeled as ‘organic mushrooms’ to increase profits, the stuff that come out of China were found to be tainted by U.S. inspectors and shouldn’t find their way to your households. 34% of processed mushrooms come from China so it is best to buy local and true organic food supplies instead.
