I am unsure if you read health reports lately but the tea leaves tested from china had over the safe levels of lead in them, as well as a few other imported areas from South America.

I thought majority of our products are made in China? Even my iPhone was made from them. I have no problems with it.
Buying cheap stuffs that are Made in China? Oh-oh. It only lasted for 2 days, and if I'm lucky? A week.

I don't think I can take the risk of buying electronic products of China since my Aunt's house almost went on fire when her charger exploded. I'm not really sure what it really was, but it had something to do with electronics.

However, their other products are good. Such as clothes and jeans.

Yes, I own clothes I bought from Chinese Storenvy shops that are homemade, not factory-made. They're cute and have lasted a long time.

Most of my computers are made in China with stuff from everywhere including China.... I've got PC's that have been running 24/7 for years at a time crunching BOINC... SO, I guess I'm pleased with the results.

I just remember that people used to say the EXACT SAME THINGS about Japanese stuff when I was growing up...

My china from China has lasted for years. My woks were made in China and they are excellent. Way better than the garbage being sold at Bed, Bath and Beyond. China makes a lot of cheap crap, but they still produce high end goods.

Lots of the little things, like hair ties and stationary, the like.
China does sell high quality stuff though you know. There's the cheap side, which occasionally has great bargains and is awesome for buying temporary indulgences, and there's the decent side, for you know, every day life. You just have to recognize that.
Buying flashy clothing cheap is great when you know you're only going to get to wear it a handful of times.

Pretty sure my sneakers were made in China. I like them. These clothes I'm wearing were prolly made in China, too. The shirt's a bit scratchy, but the pants are nice.

My geography teacher in high school said he bought only American products for, like, 5 years in the late '90s/early 2000's. I found that funny, 'cause he's actually British. To this day, he refuses to buy Chinese products

I wouldn't go so far as to refuse to buy Chinese products, but it's always nice to support the manufacturing of my home country.
