PLASTIC RICE FROM CHINA
Research has shown that certain rice factories in China have been producing a "fake rice substitute" in place of the popular and more expensive Wuchang rice, for greater profit. Read the article and see the video's for yourself, below.
The “rice” is made by mixing potatoes, sweet potatoes and plastic. The potatoes are first formed into the shape of rice grains. Industrial synthetic resins are then added to the mix. The rice reportedly stays hard even after being cooked ... About 300,000 people were injured and at least six infants died in 2008 when Chinese milk and infant formula was found to be adulterated with melamine, which was thought to help the milk pass nutrition tests. The practice seems to be mimicked in other Asian countries as well exporting the fake plastic rice around the world. Exports have increased to African countries mainly Nigeria!
The obvious motivation behind this scheme would be money, since the synthetic “rice” is cheaper to produce. This is just another, albeit somewhat more disquieting, in the long line of tainted or defective products apparently coming out of China. These would include the poisonous drywall, and tainted milk.
