Hi everybody. I just came across a really interesting skeptical website named Waffles at Noon. There, I found an interesting piece on a step-by-step debunking of a photo that has long circulated on the internet …

Friday Video: Sometimes The Everyday World Is Filled With Scary Things

Submitted by on September 28, 2012 – 6:34 AM8 Comments | 2,235 views


When I first discovered this story over at Weird Asia News, I was blown away. I knew China was doing some pretty unscrupulous things, but this is downright scary.

The following videos tell the story of how the Chinese are literally and systematically fooling the world. We all know that Chinese imports are flagged several times a year here in the US, some even make it to market before discovery, but nothing compares to what they are passing along to their own people and other unsuspecting countries with little in the way of import control.

In this first video you will see an investigation into counterfeit eggs, you heard that right, fake eggs! I suggest you watch the beginning until they crack open what appears to be a real egg and then skip ahead to the 6:00 minute mark where they show the process of making a chemical egg. After that you will see them make a fake grape as well.

Those who have the time should definitely watch the entire video.

This next video is all about the plastic rice trade. Plastic rice you say? Yes, plastic rice that is sold as food all over China.

Here’s one last video as I think you’re getting the idea. I didn’t want to get into the whole wormy chocolate thing anyway.

In this one they show us fake salt. This one could possibly even get by US inspectors.

While we in America consume things that are bad for us, this is going a big leap beyond. China is now counterfeiting several consumables and selling them as authentic….and getting away with it. I saw one video where they were actually making baked goods out of cardboard!

As I said, many foods are bad for us, but when you produce something completely composed of chemicals, some being very toxic and then lying about the ingredients, it becomes very dangerous to those who are just trying to feed their families.

This is just one more reason to be thankful we are living in America. Sure, there are lots of unscrupulous people and businesses, not to mention our distrust of the government, however, compared to some of the atrocious things happening in various Asian locales of the world, we are living in Zanadu.

Who knows what’s next? All I can say is this stuff is more frightening than any ghost or goblin out there.

Thanks to Weird Asia News for tipping me off to the fake foods scandal.

    China has plastic rice, we have GMO corn.

  • Valkyrie13

    Yup. And is there honestly a difference between eating plastic or having every single food item wrapped in plastic. There’s really no escaping it. We’re screwed as a human species.

  • Cleveland_Steamer aka Gonzo_13

    I know, it sucks. GMO in all the food, Aspartame in everything that used to have real sugar, BPA in the containers its all packed in, fluoride in the water, thimerosal in the vaccines, etc, etc. It’s overwhelming when you think about it.

    The difference is that the items you mention are perfectly legal and the things in China are not and are being traced and such. Think about that if you will.

    This is not scary. Try the unsolved conspiracy of Number Stations. These stations consist only of an automated voice reading out numbers, over short wave radio. These stations have no useful content, and have no known schedule. Number stations have been around since World War II, and many stations are still active to this day. No country has openly admitted to sending a Number Station transmission, and not one individual has ever said they help operate such a station. Many speculate that these transmission are intended for Spies, and many cases suggest this to be correct. These stations can be heard on short wave radio all over the world, at any given time of day.

  • Valkyrie13

    That’s exactly it!!! All that crap is legal, and that is awful!!! Nobody should be putting that stuff into their bodies. It’s bizarre that we accept it as normal.

  • Valkyrie13

    That is pretty cool, I just looked them up on wiki.
