China Admits Existence of "Cancer Villages"

     The Chinese government is now openly admitting that severe exposure to chemicals via water pollution, air pollution and environmental pollution is causing the rise of "cancer villages" across China.  China can no longer deny the truth that its nation, and its people, are being destroyed by toxic pollution. To appreciate the magnitude of this admission, you have to understand that China's government is steeped in the practice of denial. All communist regimes are, of course, delusional at every level, but China has taken denial to a whole new depth of mastery with its longstanding insistence that environmental problems didn't really exist. If a Chinese local saw a wave of bright green sludge pouring down a local river and they complained to the government, they were simply told it was caused by "overpopulation," not by a factory dumping chemical sludge into the river.
     This is how "cancer villages" appear, of course: People living in China eat the food grown in China. They breathe the air. They drink the water. And then they start mutating at the genetic level. This results in cancer, birth defects and untold human suffering.
     And yes, the USDA licenses organic certifiers to operate in China and sell in the U.S., and its 'organic' standards completely lack any limits on the pollution of irrigation water sprayed on crops. They do not limit how close your crops can be to a chemical plant, nor do they limit the level of heavy metals contamination in the final product.  Always check the country of origin of your food--make sure it's not from China!  Source.
