Contaminated food from China now entering the U.S. under the ‘organic’ label

Tainted food

(NaturalNews) The Chinese food production industry is one of the world’s least-regulated and most corrupt, as has repeatedly been proven time and again. Now, it appears, there is no trusting anything that comes from China marked “organic.”

Natural Health 365 reports that several foods within the country are so contaminated that Chinese citizens don’t trust them. What’s more, the countries that import these tainted foods are putting their citizens at risk.

U.S. Customs personnel often turn away food shipments from China because they contain unsavory additives and drug residues, are mislabeled, or are just generally filthy. Some Chinese food exporters have responded by labeling their products “organic,” though they are far from it.

There are several factors at play which make Chinese claims of organic unreliable. First, environmental pollution from unrestrained and unregulated industrial growth has so polluted soil and waterways with toxic heavy metals that nothing grown in them is safe, much less organic. Also, there is so much fraudulent labeling and rampant corruption within the government and manufacturing sectors that it’s not smart to trust what is put on packaging.

In fact, farmers in China use water that is replete with heavy metals, Natural Health 365 noted in a separate report. In addition, water used for irrigation also contains organic and inorganic substances and pollutants. Chinese “organic” food is so contaminated that a person could get ill just by handling some of it.

‘Dirty water’ is all there is

The report noted further:

“This is reality – all of China’s grains, vegetables and fruits are irrigated with untreated industrial wastewater. The Yellow River, which is considered unusable, supports major foodproducing areas in the northeast provinces.”

Many Chinese farmers won’t even eat the food they produce, if you can believe that. That’s because it’s clear that China’s water pollution issues are so pronounced that it threatens the country’s entire food supply.

Chinese farmers have said there is no available water for crops except “dirty water.” As part of the country’s industrial prowess, it is also one of the largest producers (and consumers) of fertilizers and pesticides, Water Politics reported.

The site noted further that as China’s industrial might grows, so too does the level of contaminants in the country’s water supply. Lakes, rivers, streams and falling water tables are becoming more polluted by the year.

In addition to man-made pollutants, animals produce about 90 percent of the organic pollutants and half of the nitrogen in China’s water, say experts at the Chinese Academy for Environmental Planning. There are times when water is so polluted it turns black – yet it is still used to irrigate crops, and of course, that affects so-called organic farming operations as well.

These nine foods are particularly vulnerable to becoming tainted, Natural Health 365 noted:

Fish: Some 80 percent of the tilapia sold in the U.S. come from fish farms in China, as well as half the cod. Water pollution in China is a horrible problem, so any fish grown there are suspect.

Chicken: Poultry produced in China is very often plagued with illnesses like avian flu.

Apples and apple juice: Only recently has the U.S. moved to allow the importation of Chinese apples, though American producers grow plenty for the country and the world.

Rice: Though this is a staple in China and much of the rice in the U.S. comes from there, some of it has been found to be made of resin and potato.

Mushrooms: Some 34 percent of processed mushrooms come from China.

Salt: Some salt produced in China for industrial uses has made its way to American dinner tables.

Black pepper: One Chinese vendor was trying to pass off mud flakes as pepper.

Green peas: Phony peas have been found in China made of soy, green dye and other questionable substances.

Garlic: About one-third of all garlic in the U.S. comes from China.

Shop wisely.

    Why are we allowing our hired help to poison us? Let Trump know the facts and ask him to stop the insanity: reorganize FDA; stop the chemtrails, etc.

  • Avatar

    Chemtrails and pollution make our foods including organic, non-organic. We cannot escape the contamination. Prez Trump needs to have a list of items that are “bad” for america and make america virtually uninhabitable.

      what to eat
      i eat less and less food, almost nothing from the supermarket, standard stores.
      i am going with powder (supplement if you will) from markus rothkranz.
      powder from (sun dried ususally) vegetable and fruits ususally from the wild, high in mineral, not poor soils as at commercial farms.

      just with green formula, sea/irish moss, vitamin c (1 tbsc 1000mg), age free, protein powder you get probably everything. if you think you need more carbs, get organic banana (has a peel) or brown rice from good sources. I also get pure vitamin b12 shots 2-4 times (1000mcg) a year as i want it.

      if times get worse in future, he ofters also a book as an app to know which plants you can eat in forest. it is time to stop to buy unhealthy food from the supermarkets with low minerals/nutrtients.

      chemtrails, yes, that is a problem, our sky is large and so we deal with tons of it, not some miligrams of poison what they sprey and call geo engineering project to reflect sun beams and stop climate change. stopping one problem and causing another one is not right.
      BUT, I THINK THAT THERE ARE LESS CHEMTRAILS OVER FORESTS OUTSIDE AT THE POPULTION.

        Some of the powdered supplements have high levels of the heavy metal lead. It could come from foods from China, or from the lead residue in fracking waste water grown in the USA.

    The best investment you can make is a greenhouse and supply your own food . Trade and barter with like minds. Boycott the likes of Wholefoods = a total scam on organic food. Do not reward the criminals by doing business with them.

      at least don’t support china food as long as they don’t change much.
      whole food and organic is great. but as always, scamer are around everywhere.
      so it is never 100% safe, neither in western world nor in east asia.
      we have to get active to make a change, by doing nothing, it get worse, not better.

    The US needs to bring back all manufacturing and agriculture to the US where pollution can be strictly monitored.

    DOLLAR STORES! ! ! Be so aware of any food bought in these stores, canned, dried, frozen or otherwise. . . HEADS UP!!!

    Modified food starch will be the new cancer hazard. My toxicologist tested this substance and some of the Modified starch is encoated in plastics like silicones. It could be part of the agenda to transhumanize us. Filling the bodies with silicone fiber optics combined with chemtrail nanobots. The person who warned me worked for the military! Everyone do the “red wine spit test” on youtube. Everyone is spitting out nano goo which is silicone gel that makes the nano implants. Notice how modified starch, corn, etc. is in all food now. Even sodas. Why do they suddenly need to put modified starch in soda??!!! Plastic nanobots!

    Buy local if possible. Locate farmers that you can buy from. That’s the only meat I eat. Learn to dowse.

    Under the TPP, it could be that our food supply goes to the lowest bidder. Low food prices at the expense of all else.

    • Avatar

      Among other things. The TPP has 29 chapters…only five deal with trade. The rest is about taking away our national sovereignty on internet, the justice system , environmental rules, worker rights, etc.

    If an ingredient is from China the whole product might still have a US or Canada designation. Congress destroyed what little food information we had available. Clean sweep, vote all the incumbents out!

    …who would eat ANYTHING coming from China?? There is a store in my neighborhood that sells “honey” that is made in China… I would not believed it if I didn’t see it for myself. China is the super power of counterfeit goods. I barely buy clothes made there.

    If this is true someone Please tell me just what are the Chinese eating??? Seems to me they would be starving by now.

    Isn’t this the country that added melamine to dairy products to bring its watered down dairy products resulting in death. Growing up, my family used melamine dishes to eat dinner from. Chinese food products for all. They are well regulated.

    Seems once again there’s the need for everyone to understand how important it is to GROW YOUR OWN FOOD! 🙂 Watch the Back to Eden garden tours on YouTube! You’ll be amazed. 🙂

    • Avatar

      Not just grow our own food but COOK our own food.

      • Avatar

        Of course, if you cook foods you eat. MANY people who have a Back to Eden garden say their produce tastes so good there’s no need to cook OR add dressings or sauces to foods like leafy greens, asparagus and even BEETS! 🙂

        But you are right, we can’t rely on anyone else to grow foods the way God designed them. EVERYTHING is not as it seems today and it’s ALL an assault on our bodies and health.

    Sun gaze for 45 minutes at Sunrise and Sunset and STOP the need to eat at all. Draw your energy from the Sun through your Pineal gland and say FAAK you to big corps

    If you need safe organic food just buy it from Russia. Ukrainian food is now being poisoned by Monsanto. Just like in USA.

    • Avatar

      Thanks to Hillary who spent billions overthrowing the Ukraine gov so a fascist gov could be installed. Then Biden went over to promote fracking there and in other countries. US leaders want to pollute all the earth. Also, Biden secured a seat on the Board of the largest gas company there. Russia doesn’t allow chem trails, doesn’t have capital punishment and interceded in Syria when we were taking out the third of seven Mid East Countries that we planned to overthrow. Tell me how bad Russia is.

    • Avatar

      I also read Russia is going to emerge as a large producer of organic fruits & vegetables.

    Is there a way to tell food source country of origin? Funny how our clothes and other products are required to have COO labels but not our food!😖😠😏

  • Avatar

    Very informative article! It’s getting harder and harder to find safe food, even from outside of China. I do believe tough that, in the average, buyers of food imported from China run a higher risk. I’m also concerned about the fact that in the U.S. efforts are underway to lower organic standards. If it goes on like this, the certified-organic label might eventually become worthless.

      Learn to dowse. I shop at a farmers market…

        Great idea. However, I wonder how salespeople and other customers would react to seeing me using a pendulum. The same is true for a Geiger counter to see if a product has been impacted by Fukushima radiation (or another source). I know, it shouldn’t matter. I should give up seeking approval. Well, I guess dowsing could also be done after a purchase. I could then avoid buying a toxic product again. Or it could even be done before entering a store to buy specific products.

    We ship them our toxic fracking crap, and they send us their toxic food crap.
    What a world!
    Thank you for bringing this to light!
    When are we going to become more than voices crying in the wilderness?

    Even when it comes to growing your own foods, can you trust the dirt you buy at Home Depot or Lowes isn’t tainted with toxic metals as well?
