Heavy Metal: 12 Million Tons of Chinese Rice Contaminated
Posted by Krista Mahr Wednesday, February 23, 2011 at 5:07 am
Ugh. Hong Kong's English daily South China Morning Post has a distinctly unsavory dispatch from the Chinese media this morning: Government scientists have released research that millions of acres of Chinese agricultural land and over 12 million tons of Chinese grain are contaminated by toxic metal pollution, according to this week's edition of the China Economic Weekly, a state-run magazine.
Last week, a separate article reported that 10% of Chinese rice contained excess cadmium, a heavy metal known to cause cancer.

Cadmium - same one found a few years back in hair accessories and costume jewelry that came from China. Then there was the aqua dots, the melamine in baby formula to false register as protein, then in coffe and dog food. Not only should we ingest nothing from China, we shouldn't even touch anything from China. Scary stuff!!
