10 FOODS MADE IN CHINA YOU MUST AVOID (FILLED WITH PLASTIC, PESTICIDES AND CANCER CAUSING CHEMICALS)
It has become a well-known fact that much of the food found in America is imported from China. Why would one need to buy food from China when we have so much farmland in America? It all has to do with the price, food from China is cheaper, but it comes at a cost.
1. Tilapia Fish
80% of tilapia in America comes from China. The fish are bottom feeders and will eat almost anything. With water pollution, the way it is in China, eating anything raised in that water would be unsafe to say the least. Plus, who knows what the fish are being fed. There is, also, one study that states tilapia is less healthy than bacon.
2. Cod Fish
50% of American Cod comes from China. Yet again this is a water pollution and feeding issue. There are few restrictions in China for these types of exports.
3. Apple Juice
About 50% of all apple juice sold in the US comes from China. China has been known to use harmful pesticides on their food. Even pesticides that have been banned by their own government. Making apple juice at home from local organic apples is the best method.
4. Processed Mushrooms
34% of all processed mushrooms come from China. Just as we saw with apples, one does not know what the mushrooms are grown in and exactly how healthy they are. Just to be on the safe side, buy mushrooms local or from trusted American-based or Canadian-based farms.
5. Chinese Garlic
31% of garlic sold in America comes from China. Like with other grown foods, the pesticides involved in the process (mainly methyl bromide) are just not safe and should be avoided. You can find out how to spot Chinese garlic here.
