In fact, I will pay more for all items if they are American made but sometimes there are only China-made so there's no choice, which irritates me to no end. BOBBIE T, you are right. I read that most corn is now GE and food doesn't have to be labeled as such. Irradiated food can last in the fridge forever, it seems. That should be labeled as well. Our government IS NOT looking out for us. Me, too, WHATEVER @ 9:15 am.

I don't see the big deal. I have eaten rat meat (田鼠) before, which was caught in fields and not from city sewers. The meat of such rats is similar to frog meat, a white meat, and is quite delicious. In fact, it is more expensive and rare than mutton. I would be delighted to receive "tian su" meat instead of mutton. Ignoramuses who know nothing about the culture need not reply. FYI, black squirrel meat is also delicious. Racists!!

Nobody tries to pass carrots for something else." Please educate yourself about genetically engineered food. The entire planet's food supply is not right, which is why we're all getting sicker and sicker. “Another reason NOT to eat meat. Nobody tries to pass carrots for something else.”

China is on a fast track to poison the rest of us with all of their public health issues. Maybe the new bird flu isn't a bird flu after all. Okay that’s disgusting.
