    food for thought...important!

    Imported food we eat,and the junk we buyGreen Giant frozen vegetables are from China , and so are most of Europe's Best. Arctic Gardens are OK.Never buy the grocery store garlic unless it is clearly marked from USA or Canada , the other stuff is grown in people poop (even worse than chicken poop). China is the largest producer of garlic in the world. U.S. is next.Buy only local honey, much honey is shipped in in huge containers from China and re-packed here.Cold-FX is grown and packed in China and is full of fecal bacteria. Doesn't work anyway, big scam. If the country of origin is not clearly marked beware. If produce, ask an employee. Watch out for packages which state "prepared for", "packed by" or "imported by". I don't understand the lack of mandatory labeling, especially the produce.The country of origin should be clearly shown on the item in the store. I go to the local farmers markets in season and keep a wary eye open the rest of the year.Please read this very carefully, and read to the very bottom.Its important for all of us.How is it possible to ship food from China cheaper than having it produced in the U.S. or Canada ?FOR EXAMPLE THE "OUR FAMILY" BRAND OF THE MANDARIN ORANGES SAYS RIGHT ON THE CAN FROM CHINA . SO, FOR A FEW MORE CENTS BUY THE LIBERTY BRAND.GOLD BRAND OR THE DOLE IS FROM CALIFORNIA . Beware, Costco sells canned peaches & pears in a plastic jar that come from China .ALL "HIGH LINER" AND MOST OTHER FROZEN FISH PRODUCTS COME FROM CHINA OR INDONESIA . THE PACKAGE MAY SAY "PACIFIC SALMON" ON THE FRONT, BUT LOOK FOR THE SMALL PRINT. MOST OF THESE PRODUCTS COME FROM FISH FARMS IN THE ORIENT WHERE THERE ARE NO REGULATIONS ON WHAT IS FED TO THESE FISH.(Recently The Montreal Gazette had an article by the Canadian Government on how Chinese feed the fish: They suspend chicken wire crates over the fish ponds, and the fish feed on chicken shit.If you search the internet about what the Chinese feed their fish you'll be alarmed, e.g. growth hormones, expired anti-biotic from humans. Never buy any type of fish or shellfish that comes from these countries: Vietnam , China , Philippines .Check this out personally. I did.Stienfelds Pickles are made in India just as bad!!!Another example is in canned mushrooms. No-Name brand came from Indonesia . Also check those little fruit cups. They used to be made in Canada in the Niagara region until about 2 years ago. They are now packaged in China !While the Chinese export inferior and even toxic products, dangerous toys and goods to be sold in North American markets, the media wrings its hands and criticizes the Obama Administration and the Harper Government for perceived errors. Yet 70% of North Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended!!Well, duh.Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges?SIMPLY DO IT YOURSELF U.S. !!&CANADASimply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says 'Made in China ' or 'PRC' (and that now includes Hong Kong ), simply choose another product, or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.THINK ABOUT THIS:If 200 million North Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, that's a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor...fast!!The downside? Some Canadian / American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from having foreign stockpiles of inventory.Just one month of trading losses will hit the Chinese for 8% of their North American exports.Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness are worth it.START NOW and dont stop.
