To a certain extent, we don’t complain because it means that we have access to normally expensive items, as well as the luxury of buying in bulk—two things that consumers as well as big businesses thrive on. Unfortunately, due to rushed and shoddy production (what makes it cheap), quality is sacrificed quite obviously. With that comes the danger of loss of life and limb, even use as a means to forward a political agenda. Also, because we’re a third world country and we do what we can to cut corners, we end up wasting a lot of money on second-rate products that end up breaking (or killing us) after a few short months.
So, what are the things from China that we should avoid…
8. Toxic toothpaste
6. Pet Food
2. Maps and Globes
Let’s veer away a bit from the poison and move to propaganda. It has been found out that maps and globes being exported to the Philippines features China’s version of the 9 Dash Line, which is a very subtle move because most people will ignore it and next thing you know, it’ll become what people know. You have to give props to the Chinese Political Machine, it does propaganda well.
