    A James Bond plot in the making. Now for the mastermind genius world dictator-bound bad guy and we got a movie full of sticky situations. Who would play Honey Bee, the blonde bombshell? Can't wait to see their secret billion $$$ hideout!

    All kidding aside, this is serious stuff. It shows how easy it is for a consumer to not have a clue where his food really came from in some cases. I tell everyone in my presentations, 'if you don't know your beekeeper, you don't know where your honey came from'. I literally blast Chinese imports, not just due to watering down as in the case mentioned, but due to the common use of cancer-linked antibiotics.

    Chinese food exports to the United States have nearly quintupled in the past decade, from roughly $880 million to more than $4.2 billion.

    As of this spring there were only about 300 inspectors to spot-check more than 13 million annual shipments. Only a fraction, 7 percent of incoming drugs, got even a cursory glance.

    In some cases, oversight has even been outsourced to China. In June 2007, responding to an epidemic of Chinese seafood containing carcinogenic chemicals and banned antibiotics, the FDA announced that certain products would be held until cleared by lab tests, but allowed Chinese labs - notoriously unreliable - to do the testing. Six weeks later, the Associated Press reported that at least a million pounds of the targeted seafood had hit American plates and stores untested, despite the agency's directive.

    Avoid anything from China - especially food!

    Oh, honestly. Do you really think we need their food. Hey, that's an idea. Let's piss 'em all off and maybe they won't send any of their garbage here anymore.
