10 Foods Made In China You Must Avoid
It is well know that some food selling in America is actually imported from China. And yes, food that comes from China is cheaper, but later we will pay a bigger price. It is about our health.
Here is a list of 10 foods from China that we all should avoid.
80% of tilapia sold in America is, in fact, Chinese. Tilapia is a bottom feeder, meaning that they consume everything they find. Taking into consideration the water pollution in China, the consumption of anything that has been raised in the water is extremely dangerous. According to one study, tilapia is even more harmful than bacon.
Half of the Cod in America is actually produced in China. Again the feeding issues and pollution there make its consumption is far from safe. These exports have been even restricted in China.
It is a well-known fact that China includes dangerous pesticides on fruits and half of the apple juice in the U.S. is from China. The Chinese government has banned these pesticides, but they are still included in use. Therefore, it is safer to make your own apple juice from local organic apples.
34% of all processed mushrooms in the U.S. are imported from China and their process of production is unknown. Therefore, buy your mushrooms from local farms or American-based or Canadian-based ones.
Over 31% of the garlic we use is actually Chinese and its process of production, just like in the case of other foods, includes pesticides. Mainly methyl bromide, which is harmful to your health.
