It is time to stop buying Made in China products.

Aside from the fact that American (and other countries as well) jobs have migrated to China, China in turn is sending garbage to many sources of products.

For example, pet food. How many animals have to die before U.S. companies stop importing poisoned contents for pet food?

Sea Food. It isn't inspected, and there is no product source on the foods we buy. How can we tell if the food is contaminated, or where it came from without origin source labels. There was a law that was passed to provide this information, but the lobbyists have fought its implementation.

Toys. Have you missed how many thousands of toys Mattel has had to recall because of lead paint? And this is just one company.

Medicines. I believe the manager of this arena was executed for the poisons in medical or supplements for the U.S. market. Wow, that's a bit heavy handed, but it caused some people real grief.

Toothpaste (http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/472070). The cost of this product for some sources was as little as 9 cents a tube. Sounds like dumping to me.

This is by no means a complete list, but I have been suspicious of Made in China products for a long time. I avoid them at all costs, especially if it is consumable. If it's electronic, I question if I really need it, and most of the time I don't buy it. I've had too many electronic products quit almost immediately out of the box.

How about you? Are you willing to risk your health, or your children's health to Made in China products?

I'm a believer in free markets, but the Chinese have abused us and our markets beyond all reason. It's time we paid them back by not buying, or by buying as little as possible of anything Made in China.

It's time to Boycott Made in China products.
