Captain Ed is the ultimate in "Do it Yourselfers". He built a 55 foot sailboat and circumnavigated the globe for 7 years. When asked how he did it, he comments:
"Anyone can do it, it starts with the first nail"..
I just got a great deal on 2.5
lbs of Salmon...the package said Wild Caught...I figured the
Atlantic Ocean....nah...from CHINA...I will be returning it
watch what you buy, read the fine print...I will be sure to do
that ALL the time instead of some of the time.
Subject: THE FOODS YOU EAT! PLEASE READ!!!!
A Food inspector on TV....said he had lived overseas and he had
seen the filthy conditions their foods are raised and processed
It is enough to make you throw up. Some foreign workers have to
wear masks as they work in these places, because the food is so
rotten and filthy, it makes them want to throw up. Many of their
Fish on Fish Farms are fed Raw sewage daily. He said he has seen
so much filth throughout their food growing and processing that
he would "never" eat any of it. They raise this filth , put some
food coloring and some flavorings on it, then they ship it to
the USA for YOU to consume and feed to YOUR families. They have
no Food & Safety Inspectors. They ship it to you to buy and
poison your families and friends.
Imported food we eat and the junk we buy
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
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 the rest of the year.
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
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. Steinfeld's Pickles are made
in India - just as bad!
Another example is in canned mushrooms. No-Name brand came from
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
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' (People’s Republic of China , 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
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.
