Not satisfied with slaughtering their own, China has extended the muzzle of their weapons of mass destruction, ie anything made in China, to the rest of the world.
Almost 40 % of all toxic clothing in the world is made in China. On a positive note, you will now have a new Chinese neighbor, thanks to relaxed immigration laws. When you see him and his, tell him thanks for his contribution to curbing the population explosion.
“A report released recently by Greenpeace claiming that the children lines of renowned international brands contain toxic chemical residues has caused a stir among Chinese consumers.
The clothes of twelve brands, including Burberry, Adidas, Nike, H&M, Primark, Puma, Li Ning, Disney, American Apparel, C&A, GAP, and Uniqlo, were found to have contained toxic ingredients, such as nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) and phthalates, according to the report. The finding is based on samples of 82 items of childrens’ clothing purchased by the organization in 25 countries and areas during May-June of 2013, with production sites including China, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, the Philippines, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Vietnam, and the US. “The problem may lie in the lining and the dyeing process,” remarked Xiao Danlai, vice secretary general of the Hubei Textile Industry Association.
Twenty nine, 35%, of the toxic samples came from China, which is the world’s largest textile producer, consuming 42% of textile chemicals worldwide.”
