China is the growing superpower of the world and one of the few countries to whom the US owes money. But it is also famous for its products from electronics to food that is made on huge scale and is usually of poor quality. But you will not believe the food that is exported out of China is not only bad in quality but can also cause cancer. Check out the 7 food that you should not eat if it comes from China.

1 Tilapia Fish

China is perhaps one of the biggest exporters of tilapia fish. It is also the largest farmable fish in China and is farmed by most Chinese people. However the fish is considered a bottom feeder and eats almost anything in the water. When farmed in the small pool of water with many other fishes, it usually feeds on whatever it gets in that area. Even the local Chinese fish farmers do not eat this fish nor allow any family members to consume it. But America imports 80% of this fish from China.

2 Apple Juice

Chinese apple juice has flooded the supermarkets in US and 50% of the apple juice sold in any shop in US comes from Chinese farms. However China is known to spray copious amounts of pesticides and since it is the largest pesticide producing country in the world, they are pretty liberal in using it also. Also fruit juices contain high amounts of sugar and should be mixed with vegetable juice to make it healthier.
