Love him or hate it, Donald Trump is the first man to win the presidency with the nerve to take on China.
And it’s about darned time!
I won’t get into the politics of it. I’m not here to talk about trade, deficits, taxes, immigration, or even the shoddy low-cost garbage flooding our markets.
I’m here to focus on your HEALTH – and when it comes down to it, China is one of the biggest threats to your wellbeing out there.
They’re shipping us tons of low-cost frozen foods, canned goods, juices, and more – and all this junk is being produced in the filthiest Third World conditions you can imagine.
One new report finds 500,000 food safety violations in China over the past nine months. That’s nearly TWO THOUSAND violations per day!
The new report doesn’t get too specific – and maybe that’s a good thing, since the kind of stuff that happens over there will turn your stomach.
We’re talking food mixed with “gutter oil,” which is exactly what it sounds like, as well as the widespread use of “industrial gelatin” and other contaminants in stuff you’re supposed to eat.
They’ve also been busted mixing resin – a.k.a. PLASTIC – into the rice and dyeing their peas green with a cancer-causing coloring agent.
They’ve even been caught selling POISONED baby formula!
Sure, they’ll claim this is just the stuff they’re making to be sold in China… and that the stuff they send overseas is somehow DIFFERENT and BETTER.
And if you believe that one, I’ve got a wall to sell you.
Fact is, we have no clue what they’re shipping to us, as less than 3 percent of all imports are examined. The “food” they’re sending us could be grown in a festering Chinese dung-field pumped full of sewer water, for all we know.
And then, adding insult to injury, they can even slap an “ORGANIC” label on it… because who’s really checking up on that stuff?
Most Chinese-grown foods sold in America are found in the frozen and canned aisles, especially corn, green beans, peas, mushrooms, and garlic. They’ve even been sending us chicken lately, and I don’t even want to THINK about what’s in their dirty birds!
Some dried and powdered spices (especially garlic) are also from China, and their fruits (especially apples) are used in juices sold here.
In addition, close to 80 percent of all U.S. tilapia comes from China, where they’re raised in the filthy muck of polluted waterways.
The simplest way to avoid all of these risks is to stick to fresh, local food. But if you need a supply of frozen foods for your snow day stash, read the labels closely and look for the country of origin.
If it says “CHINA” on it, or doesn’t list the country at all, put it back.
