China Syndrome: Toxic & Deadly!
Barry Artiste OP/ED
With virtually everything we eat, it surprises many that most everything we put on our plate (which by the way is made in China) comes from China, whether it be the food or main ingredients in foods we buy.
Rest assured the United States as well are in the same slow boat from China, as their food comes from the same source and companies as Canada's.
Consumers are now learning from Media and Government sources that China's lack of Quality Control has put all consumers at risk with Toxic and Deadly ingredients are being found in just about everything from fish, soups to nuts to fruits and veggies all from China, sold cheaply to North American consumers, eventually pushing local farmers in North America out of business, with the intent to one day what many publicly state is for China to control all Worldwide foodstuffs ( much like the way China now controls all manufacturing of clothing, appliances, electronics, dishes,toys etc) we purchase and consume willingly cheaply with disregard to our health, resulting in North America being at the whim of China for everything, as it clearly seems to be the case according to this story, where virtually anything in your home or cupboard you can think of is raised, grown, or manufactured in China. Is this a Wake Up Call in things to come?
And you thought only Lead and Asbestos Children Toys and Sweat Shop child labour Clothing you purchase came from China? Manufacturing in North America is virtually "Dead", Why? Cause Consumers are Suckered into that Yellow Smiley Face with Touts, Low, Low Prices is the Law!
Don't be fooled by North American companies who state on their Products "Made in Canada or Made in the USA" it ain't! This according to media investigations, and never has been for the last decade or so.
Did you know Chinese made "Counterfeit CSA and ULC stickers" Mandatory in this country, and which accompany all electrical appliances and electrical equipment in North America have been found on Chinese made appliances and equipment, including some say faulty Christmas lights for example. Good luck come Christmas, if you are wondering why you and your family are standing in knee deep snow in your pajamas watching your house all aglow, sipping hot coca from China with the Firemen.
Consumers now are finally waking up from that Toxic Dream as previous reports in the last year show if it is made in China, chances are it may harm l you or it made sick the Poor slob in China who made it for you!
Is it any wonder many state China is fast becoming the Worlds Deadly Breadbasket, when it poisons it own citizens, and the consumers of the world.
Who needs "Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction" to rid yourself of your enemies, when you can eliminate your enemies slowly, over time, and in the most subtle of ways with toxic cancerous chemicals.
Toxic cancerous chemicals which over time will pass on from one generation to future generation, afflicting us with a host of ailments and health problems which will shorten our mortality.
Who woulda thunk? How conventional! "Foods" can now be added to the long list of products from China as "The New Chemical War on Terror", Terror, now as close as your Breakfast table or Candied Treats. Surely not Halloween Candy? Who is to say?
Welcome to your Nightmare! Happy Halloween! Saddam and Hitler must be so jealous.

OTTAWA -- Walk down the baby-food aisle of any grocery store in Canada, and parents will be hard-pressed to find jars of pureed citrus fruits without a key ingredient -- ascorbic acid -- from China. Shoppers are also likely to find that a portion of some juice concentrate in any finished juice box is from China.
Over in frozen foods, at least one ingredient from China is likely among the dozens packed in many frozen pizzas. Then there are all the finished products from China -- from canned mushrooms to frozen vegetables, from nuts to fish fillets.
As China wrestles with a growing food-safety scandal linked to contaminated milk products, consumers in Canada are faced with a simple fact: in the last decade, China has climbed its way up the importer list, to third spot last year behind the United States and Mexico from 11th spot in 1997.
The quantity of imports of finished goods and ingredients from China has spiraled to 560 million kilograms, worth about $818 million, from about 91 million kilograms totaling about $213 million.
"If it doesn't say Made in China, you have no idea what Chinese ingredients are in there. You'll never know," said James Morehouse, senior partner at Chicago-based A.T. Kearney and specialist in the Chinese food industry.
"If you go through a supermarket, there's probably China-sourced or India-sourced ingredients in the vast majority of the products."
As companies seek out cheaper ingredients and food products, they often land in China -- even though some are reticent to disclose details.
The Coca-Cola Co. offers more than 450 brands comprising more than 2,800 beverage products, including juice and energy drinks. Amy Laski, spokeswoman for Coca-Cola Canada, confirmed the corporate giant does "source several ingredients from China, but our policy is not to disclose where we source specific ingredients.
