Cooking Oil from Drains, Gutters, and Sewages
Cooking Oil is dirt cheap in China, but Cooking Oil from Drains, Gutters, and Sewages is ten times cheaper than normal Cooking Oil. I was amazed when I was told about this, and I thought to myself, what does Cooking Oil from Drains, Gutters, and Sewages mean?
Well, Cooking Oil is used extensively in the preparation of many Chinese Cuisines especially those from Sze Chuan. Most of the oil in the food is not consumed and they are simply disposed into drains, gutters, rivers, sewages etc. The oil will remain on the top part of the water which can be easily extracted from the source be it drains, rivers, sewages or any other sources. This is known as "Swill Oil". Due to the extreme pungent smell of the extracted oil, these "highly intelligent" business people will add some chemicals to it which removes the pungent smell and replaces it with a uniquely synthetic aroma. The oil will then be sold in bulk to street hawkers, restaurants, especially those that prepares Steamboat a.k.a. Luk Luk. The Swill Oil is Rich in Aflatoxin, a really yummy toxin that will keep you "Healthy". According to newspapers in Hong Kong, a single consumption will cause cancer for life. Though the Chinese Government is making lots of efforts to track it down, it is virtually impossible to put an end to it, a highly profitable business in China.
If you watch TV in China, you'll probably see advertisements that warn you not to consume food from street hawkers.

Sewage Enhanced Seafood
If you're a fan of seafood and you're in China, you should check out the source of the fish on your table. Well, I went back to the village where my ancestors came from. It's called the Mak's Village. Nothing wrong with the village actually, but there was a huge pond over there. Being a person who loves water as much as me, I was running towards it to jump in for a swim, until I was told, "This is an Oxidation Pond". You know.... Sewage / Shit Pool... According to my cousin, if I had jumped in there, I would be his biggest JOKE for life.
Now take a look at the fish on your table. In that village, and many other villages, most fish products are raised in such Oxidation Ponds using dangerous drugs and chemicals to allow them to grow huge for better profits. Subsequently, China, is the leading seafood exporter to The United States.
