    I lived in China (Shanghai) for about 28 months. I was working there for a large MNC. After about 18 months, i got a bad relapse of an ‘arrythmia’ which has become worse, and i acquired severe sleep apnea. It was so bad i thought i was going to die. I suspect drinking quite a bit of ‘Chinese wine’ (clear stuff for only $2 a bottle but 52 per cent alcohol) has damaged my heart. It is taking a long time to recover. I also believe the large amount of ‘food’ i ate in China (i ate out most of the time and also at the work canteen) is filled with poisonous and toxic substances, which the majority of younger Chinese do not suffer disease from (i am 47 and severely allergic to mold, dust etc.) because they are young. For example, in my office of 200 high-tech software workers (HP), the average age is 30 (yes, i still work for this company), which is typicalfor cities like Shanghai. What happens to the many senior workers in China who suffer from chronic illnesses or premature deaths, is unclear. It certainly is never reported. I saw less than five percent elderly in a city of 23 million people. This is not only strange; demographically it doesn’t make sense. I am now suffering very badly and do not know if i can work again, as i have a bad ‘heart flutter’ which wakes me up put of my sleep and causes sleep apnea (or vice versa; but what caused the flutter or the apnea?). The true story about China is never told in the Chinese newapers. You never see articles that give demographics, statistics and etc. regarding life expectancy, health issues etc. In a few decades, we are going to see a tsunami of chronically ill zombies walking the streets of China (unless they are helpfully ‘re-educated’ by the friendly local PSB) and doing all manner of violence and damage due to their utter frustration with a lawless, self-centered illuminaati who profit orgasmically from the misery of the average Chinese worker.

  2. This many scandals?! I can’t believe the Chinese government isn’t taking any actions!

    China doesn’t have the good food safety and quality system, it also has a corruption system. Their food products are produced under unsanitary condition such as filthy, contamination, dirty,etc., that’s why the cost of production is so cheap. Sometimes, you heard in the news one Chinese guy was executed by the Chinese government because he put some toxic chemical (melamin, diethyl glycol, formaldehyde, etc..) in the products. it doesn’t mean anything, their system is still the same. According to FDA website, The average FDA rejected 1420 Chinese food shipments from January 2009 to September 2009, the FDA inspection is less than 1 percent of all shipments from China and we consume 13 percent of imported food per Do we pay our money to buy toxic foods for ourselves?

    I cannot believe the long list of disturbing truths!!! It is so disgusting and alarming! Even if consumers try their hardest to avoid buying those items, it does not help when they go out and eat in restuarnts(esp. chinese restaurants) because we have no way of knowing where the produce is from. Does it mean the end of eating out?? Something MUST be done – FAST!!!
