The 
Imported food we eat
 
  
Green Giant frozen vegetables are from China, and so are most of Europe's Best. Arctic Gardens are Okay. So is Birdseye.
 
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
 
Please
read this very carefully, and read to the very bottom. It's 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 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 and 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 s--t.
 
  
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. Stienfeld's 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! 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, CANADA AND THE U.S.!
 
                                   
 
 
 
 
Simply 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 don't stop.
 
 
 
Send
this to everybody you know. Let's show them that we are intelligent,
and NOBODY can take us for granted.
