The China pollution story!

This article from www.naturalnews.com is a startling story about pollution in China and how it can and is affecting our world in North America.  This is one story I just have to share.  I have been very aware of this China story for awhile now and when I am in my local Whole Foods or health food store I am knowledgeable of the foods to avoid that come from China.  Please read on.  A little bit of knowledge can go along way to protect you and your family from this craziness.

 

 

 

 

Article starts here:

(NaturalNews) On the heels of my own publication of articles  questioning the integrity of “certified organic” when it comes to foods and  superfoods produced in mainland China, a blockbuster report from China’s own  environmental ministry slams another exclamation mark on the severity of the  problem. For the first time in history, the Chinese government is now openly  admitting that severe exposure to chemicals via water pollution, air pollution  and environmental pollution is causing the rise of “cancer villages” across  China.

Their report states:

Poisonous and harmful chemical  materials have brought about many water and atmosphere emergencies… certain  places are even seeing ‘cancer villages’… (Source)

It  goes on to admit:

[China allows the use of] poisonous and harmful  chemical products that are banned in developed countries and pose long-term or  potential harm to human health and the ecology.

China is a nation being murdered by chemical pollution

China can no  longer deny the truth that its nation, and its people, are being destroyed by  toxic pollution. To appreciate the magnitude of this admission, you have to  understand that China’s government is steeped in the practice of denial.  All communist regimes are, of course, delusional at every level, but China  has taken denial to a whole new depth of mastery with its longstanding  insistence that environmental problems didn’t really exist. If a Chinese local  saw a wave of bright green sludge pouring down a local river and they complained  to the government, they were simply told it was caused by “overpopulation,” not  by a factory dumping chemical sludge into the river.

Pollution? What pollution? Huh?

In  reality, China has the worst pollution problems of any modern nation on our  planet. It has allowed industry to explode at the cost of devastating  environmental destruction. Virtually no environmental regulations are enforced.  The air, water and food are all toxic. Ninety percent of the water supply to  Chinese cities is severely contaminated, and forty percent of the nation’s  rivers are extremely toxic.

This is how “cancer  villages” appear, of course: People living in China eat the food grown in  China. They breathe the air. They drink the water. And then they start mutating  at the genetic level. This results in cancer, birth defects and untold human  suffering.

How do foods grown in China get certified organic?

As I have warned Natural News readers over the past few  days, the idea that food grown in China can be “certified organic” needs to be  seriously questioned. This is especially true given that organic  certification does not test for, nor limit, the level of contamination allowed  in foods. A food product  from China can contain 500ppm of mercury, for example, and still be “certified  organic” by the USDA.

How does this happen? The USDA licenses organic  certifiers to operate in China. Those local certifiers then visit the local  farms and make sure they comply with organic certification requirements. Those  requirements include not spraying petroleum-based fertilizers, insecticides or  herbicides on crops; not using synthetic hormones in animal feed; not planting  GMOs, and so on. But organic standards utterly lack any limits on the  pollution of irrigation water sprayed on crops. They do not limit how  close your crops can be to a chemical plant, nor do  they limit the level of heavy metals contamination in the final  product.

So, by definition, a China-grown “organic” food or superfood can  be irrigated with toxic chemical runoff, bathed in chemical plant fallout, and  grown in heavy metals-laced soil, and still be “certified organic” and sold at  Whole Foods!

This realization shocks a lot of people. They had no idea  that such heavily contaminated foods could be certified organic and sold at  health food stores in the USA.

And now, this new report from China’s  environmental ministry further supports the severity of the problem there. How  are people getting cancer in “cancer villages” all across China? By eating the  food grown in China! By drinking the water and breathing the same air that falls  on crops in China.

Why would people who are trying to buy the cleanest,  purest food and supplements in North America want to source something grown in  the same nation where “cancer villages” are sprouting up like cancer  tumors?

Always check the country of origin

If you really stop to think about it  for a minute, where do you want your organic foods to come from? The cleanest  nations on the planet, right? If you’re buying “organic,” you want it to be  from countries like Canada, the USA, France and Germany.

I’m not saying  these nations are pristine environments, but compared to countries like China  where chemical factories are openly allowed to just flush toxic chemicals right  into the rivers, the USA, France and Canada are sparkling clean. This is a case  where government — as cruel and oppressive as it is — has actually done some  measure of good with enforcing environmental regulations against factories and  corporate entities. (Yes, the EPA goes way too far in harassing farmers and  small business owners, but on the positive side, they have also helped halt all  sorts of mega-corporation pollution over the years.)

The upshot of all  this is that you have to start checking “country of origin” of everything you  buy.

Personally, I am avoiding almost everything grown in China at  this point. I wasn’t always that way, but the more I’ve researched this issue,  the more convinced I have become that avoiding China-based food products is a  rational, commonsense strategy for avoiding the very kind of toxic chemicals and  heavy metals that are causing “cancer villages” to appear across  China.

Bottom line: If China hopes to continue exporting agricultural  products, it must embark in a massive environmental crackdown campaign  and stop the poisoning of its nation. Word is already starting to spread, and  people everywhere are checking labels and avoiding foods from China. It’s only  going to get worse, to the point where China will see a crash in its  agricultural exports, unless it makes radical and lasting changes to  environmental regulations enforcement.

The future of clean food: GREENHOUSES

I’d like to also point out where  this is all headed. Thanks to chemtrails (experimental spraying in the  atmosphere), factory waste, the fluoride contamination of irrigation waters and  other factors, food grown in the open environment is going to become  increasingly contaminated. Also, consider this: The trade winds blow air  pollution from China straight to the USA, where much of it gets dumped on U.S.  soils. Yes, China exports a portion of its pollution to the United  States. This alone is reason enough to demand China clean up its  act.

The answer to all this is food grown indoors, in controlled  environments. By growing food indoors (in a greenhouse), you largely avoid the  fallout from chemtrails, coal-fired power plants and industrial factory  pollution.

But it’s crucial that this food be grown with a clean,  off-the-grid water source such as a clean well or even rainwater collection  (very expensive). Otherwise, if you’re using city water to grow crops, you’re  effectively spraying those crops with fluoride, chlorine, and in many cases  trace levels of pharmaceuticals and other chemicals that the city water supply  doesn’t remove.

Growing food in a greenhouse year-round practically  requires that you invest in a greenhouse that can open its roof. Otherwise,  crops overheat in the summer months. What this does is reduce the amount  of air pollution falling on crops, but it obviously does not eliminate  it.

I have investigated this issue in some detail, and a surprisingly  affordable solution for retractable roof greenhouses is offered by Cravo  Equipment Ltd..

Unfortunately, this company caters mostly to large,  commercial-scale growers and not residential greenhouses. But they have  installed retractable roof greenhouses that literally cover dozens of  acresof crops, including avocados in Texas, Tomatoes in Mexico, and  everything else you can think of. Their roofs are made of a fiber, sort of like  a commercial-grade showed curtain, allowing them to be easily opened and closed  using a system of cables. They aren’t air-tight, however, so in the Northern USA  or Canada, a different solution is needed in the winter months.

Ultimately: Grow your own

Over the next two years, you’re going to see  me focusing a LOT more editorial effort on gardening and food production. I’ve  come to realize that the only sure way to produce truly clean food is to grow  it yourself. Only then can you be 100% confident of what’s going into that  food.

I’m planning on investigating growing systems, including hydroponic  systems, aquaculture systems (which produce fish and plants, together) and  greenhouse solutions.

I’m also going to run lab tests on home-grown  produce to see just how clean we can get these crops by using clean well water  and soils that have never been sprayed with chemical pesticides or  herbicides.

The ultimate goal of this is to learn and share as much  information as possible on how to easily grow your own food while keeping  it as simple as possible. I’ll be using soil amendments like kelp, manure and  compost. This will all be done on camera and presented in a series of  instructional videos posted online for free.

Until then, be sure to check  the country of origin of all the food you buy. To be on the safe side,  avoid anything grown in China. Or if you do eat foods grown in China, ask the  packager / manufacturer for lab test results to make sure it’s clean.
