Recently I was reading an article on AltHealthWorks about a fake rice being produced in China. The rice is being made out of plastic believe it or not and no one is doing anything about it. Naturally, as a health advocate and researcher of food and how food is processed I thought to myself, this is going WAY too far.
Plastic rice? Ingesting even small amounts of plastic is horrible for the digestive system and hormones. The BPA (chemical) in plastic mimics estrogen and this hormone skyrockets in the body when BPA is ingested. Ingest plastic rice and you’re basically asking to die young of breast cancer.
Tilapia is commonly fish-farmed in China. These fish are some of the worst, most toxic and unhealthy fish that you can come across. A tilapia fish will eat anything, comparable to a bottom-feeder fish and fish farming is a small pool of waste water that the fish live in. It’s one of the worst fish purchases you could buy and it’s commonly known that in China the sea-food farmers won’t even let their children eat the seafood that they farm, that should tell you something. 80% of the Tilapia in America comes from China.
2. Cod Fish:
Cod is another type of fish that is fish farmed in China. This fish is not healthy and lives in it’s own waste. Currently just over 50% of American Cod comes from China.
3. Chinese Apple Juice:
Believe it or not approximately 50% of the apple juice sold in the United States comes from China. China is the LARGEST pesticide producing country in the world and they haven’t even begun to address pesticide or chemical residue on foods. I recommend completely avoiding apple juice, for yourself and your children. Fruit juice is too rich in sugar and is better mixed with vegetable juice for your blood sugar levels.
