List of 10 Food Products From China To Be Avoided That Are Filled With Plastic And Pesticides

Ingesting even small amounts of plastic is horrible for the human’s digestive system and hormones. The BPA (chemical) in plastic mimic’s 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.

Once in a while we would hear something crazy from China like this and we were always weary of food from China for this reason.

You have to think, not only is the food being shipped from across the world (just think what could happen to food during that traveling time and possible exposure to contamination), but also look at what certain Chinese companies are doing to food: They produce it fake, and as cheap as possible!

China is using its innovative methods to make cheap technology products, toys and other consumer products and is also applying that mindset to food, which is absolutely dangerous!

List of 10 food products from china to be avoided:

Cod fish


Cod is a type of fish that is fish-farmed in China. This fish is not healthy and lives in its own waste.
Currently, about 50% of American cod comes from China.

Tilapia fish


Tilapia is another type of fish commonly fish-farmed in China. Fish farming is a small pool of waste water that the fish live in .A tilapia fish will eat just about anything! So, these fish are some of the worst, most toxic and unhealthy fish that you can come across. It is one of the worst fish purchases you could buy and it is commonly known that in China the sea-food farmers won’t even let their children eat the seafood that they farm. THIS should trigger your red alert: 80% of the Tilapia in America comes from China!

Chinese apple juice

Approximately 50% of the apple juice sold in the United States again comes from China. China is the LARGEST pesticide producing country in the world and they have not even begun to address pesticide or chemical residue in foods. I recommend that you completely avoid apple juice, for yours and your children’s safety. Fruit juice is too rich in sugar and is better mixed with vegetable juice for your normal blood sugar levels.

Processed mushrooms

U.S. inspectors have found tainted mushrooms from China. Some manufacturers in China go so far as to label these processed mushrooms organic to increase their profits! If you do a google search, you will find that there are many “mystery mushrooms” in China, completely fake. 34% of processed mushrooms are from China. Do your best to know your source, by buying local and true organic food supplies!

Chinese garlic


U.S. food supervisors have also found tainted garlic from China. Garlic from China is sprayed with chemicals more than abundantly and this garlic leaves a bad taste in your mouth and coked food, that of a chemical concoction. 31% of garlic sold in the U.S. is imported from China!


In 2013 the U.S. Department of Agriculture approved the sale of Chinese chicken in America. Many food safety experts are concerned with the quality of this chicken as China is a country where avian influenza and food-borne illness are very common. Beyond that, China produces more pesticides than any other country in the world and is polluted by not only that, but also by the mass production industry.

“Plastic” rice

As we have mentioned previously in an article, fake plastic rice is also being produced. It is believed that it is actually made from potatoes and fake synthetic resin. When this rice is boiled, the rice stays hard and does not cook like naturally-grown rice. It is believed that long-term effects of this food could be cancerous.

Mud (sold as black pepper)

A vendor in China collected mud and sold it as black pepper, and also took flour and sold it as white pepper. Call it whatever you want and sell it away! The Chinese don’t have a lot of due diligence in their food and safety regulatory systems. Not that these are always great, just look at U.S. ones! We have standards too, but they are very low standards at best.

Green peas

Green peas in China were found in 2005, and may be still produced today. These fake peas were created with snow peas, soy beans, along with green dye and sodium metabisulfite (a chemical that is used as bleach and as a preservative). This dye is banned for use on produce because it may cause cancer, as well as inhibit the body’s natural ability to absorb calcium. These green peas also didn’t soften when boiled and the water turned in unnatural green color. Again, avoid green peas from China!

In our humble opinion food from China is some of the worst food you can get on the planet. As mentioned, China produces more pesticides than any other country in the world, meaning your food is most likely to be “laced” with pesticides. It is one of the most polluted regions in the entire world. 70% of their rivers are polluted, the air is toxic and the sheer volume production of products there leaves a lot of toxic chemicals and by-products as waste that leak into the environment.

Read this one fact: the air in Beijing is so polluted that breathing it actually does as much damage to the lungs as smoking 40 cigarettes a day, says a new study as of 2015.From China? Just forget about it!

Industrial salt

Industrial salt is unfit for human consumption.Yet industrial salt has been sold as table salt for whole 13 years! Industrial salt can cause mental and physical medical conditions, hypothyroid problems as well as reproductive system disorders.

How can you tell if your garlic, mushrooms or apple juice, are from China?

Well, it is very difficult to tell! For this reason we recommend shopping locally at your farmers market and getting to know your farmer or supplier. Ask questions at your health food or grocery store, and do your research. Use your cell phone to google it in the store!

You were ‘wary’ of food from China, although you probably are ‘weary’ of it, too.
