Soy Sauce and Cancer-Causing Chemicals
Despite its high sodium content, soy sauce is probably a staple in your fridge. It’s the perfect condiment to toss onto white rice, or it can add flavor to your favorite Asian-inspired dish.
Unfortunately, soy sauce imported from China is known to have 4-Methylimidazole, a cancer-causing chemical. While this chemical isn’t in every soy sauce bottle, it plagues over 25% of all the soy sauce that comes out of China. If you want to keep your favorite condiment in your kitchen without fear, don’t purchase a bottle that comes from China.
Eggs and calcium carbonate and paraffin
Many of the products we consume every day come from China, and the same goes for eggs. If you look closely, some eggs offered at your grocery store do not come from local farms!
However, you should check the origin of your eggs next time, and avoid buying those that come from China, because factories in that country use calcium carbonate and paraffin in their eggs. So, you risk poisoning if you eat them.
Lamb or Rat?
It is not uncommon to hear that the Chinese eat strange things, and they are often suspected of not necessarily serving you the meat they claim to have cooked for you. Well, that’s the case with lamb.
If you want to buy lamb, and you see that it comes from China, abstain. In 2013, the police arrested 900 Chinese who were trying to pass off rats as lamb. They found 20,000 pounds of spoiled rat meat. You don’t want to eat that!
