Beware of the supposedly “healthy” fish you are consuming. We hear left and right from nutritionists that fish is healthy and good for our bodies. Little do they know, however, that that statement is no longer true since 80 percent of the fish we consume is imported from third-world countries. On top of that, the Food and Drug Administration is underfunded and does not have the resources to inspect more than 1 to 2 percent of the food imports coming in.

Authorities have arrested six employees of the Shanghai Husi meat plant for selling meat past its expiration date to McDonald’s, KFC, and Pizza Hut. The employees were arrested on “suspicion of producing and selling fake or substandard products,” according to the Shanghai Municipal People’s Congress website.
It is no secret that foreign food sources can be problematic. Much foreign food comes from unsanitary environments and filthy processing plants. China is one of the worst offenders, both in the low quality of food they ship us, as well as the amount of toxic food that comes to our shores from them. One wonders whether this poisoning is through their incompetence due to lax standards, or whether it is part of their economic war on us.
Apparently, China is beginning to take its own food safety a bit more seriously. According to Food Safety News, the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration has published a blacklist of individuals no longer permitted to work in the food industry there. These are lifetime bans. The individuals in question also received jail terms of a few years.
