Also the Chinese milk infant formula mixed with Melamine.

Ohhh chemistry! My favorite.

Look, I know it's easy to be disgusted and fearful of the possible carcinogens in such "dirty" oil, but if you had a deeper understanding of chemistry, you'd already know about what you're being exposed to on a daily basis, regardless of fraud. Take pops for instance, persistent organic pollutants. The entire world's farmland is covered in them, not because we're still using them, (see the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants) but because they don't experience environmental degradation. They're never going away. They're chemically stable, so essentially they're immortal if you want to think of it that way... Unlike radioactive waste, pops have no half-life.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about: a few years back I saw an article in a newspaper talking about the benefits of eating organic food. In the article there was a picture of an organic tomato stand with a big hill in the background. Now just looking at the picture or reading the article wouldn't have been enough to get you to the truth of the matter, but it did for me. See, I noticed that the stand was in Indiana, and the hill in the background happened to be the tallest in the entire state. I know because I've been there. It's also artificial, because it's actually an old trash-dump. A trash-dump, which towers over the entire state of Indiana. Every single organic tomato sold at that stand is grown in a direct, down-hill trajectory from a vast repository of leftover household chemicals of every kind, any number of which are individually far more toxic than anything you'd ever see floating in an Asian sewer. Yet we call these kinds of fruits and vegetables "healthy" because they were grown organically without pesticides. Ha! The pesticides are already in the soil and the local water table is utterly contaminated. And it doesn't end in Indiana, if you want to be honest about things, there's an average of 1 active trash dump for every 20 square miles, and that's *active* mind you.

Our world is a toxic wasteland.

But don't worry! Since we're all being affected by it, it constitutes a gross evolutionary factor, which means eventually there will be a generation of people born with the ability to tolerate it. Cheers mates! xD

I think they took the idea of recycling too far

In the end, everything goes back to the Earth.

Then we take more from it.

Eh, not surprised. The FDA allows feces and sewage waste if I read that correctly in store milk also, go figure.

If you consider eating food and not getting sick a super power -- then quite possibly yes.

I've seen hair ties made with used condoms, soy sauce made from human hair, bamboo shoots made of old chopsticks, and toys that contain lead. I try obsessively to never buy anything made in China.
