I am going to post the shots of this Japanese mushrooms which is a little larger than the enoki but much more nicer and crunchier. However, the topic is about Chinese foods.
I subscribe to the Google news on health and noted that all those news are usually skewed to attract attention. Rarely are there news on health which does not reek with some hidden motives. Most times, they are probably sponsored by some parties and hence, a lot of things are purposely drummed up to create huge uproar.
Today, I see many, in fact, hundreds of news about how bad Chinese foods are. One of them even linked it to firefighters dying. I mean, come on….how can they lump every single thing into one Chinese food? (the reason I see they use firefighters are because they were the heroes during 9-11 and hence, people have a soft spot whenever you mentioned it)
We know for sure that many Americans are grossly obese. Just take a look at the current American Idol Season 6 and you will note that more than 50% of the contestants are obese. As obese as almost being handicapped by their weights. (many of them had been ousted in the early rounds)
The reason was their eating habits. Not long back, the restaurants in New York banned transfat in their cooking. They are doing all they can. Now, they are pin pointing it to Chinese foods.
Well, if you ask me, it is not Chinese foods but rather people’s laziness. They no longer cook. They rely on take-out foods, fast foods, frozen foods and all those processed stuffs.
So, take a look at this string of news and see how they blame Chinese foods when it is their own laziness that cause the health problems. I am a Chinese and must say we can cook very healthy foods like steaming, stir frying and clear soups. If you care for your health, your family’s health and your children and future generations, cook it yourself. Or at least try to balance some home cooked meals with eating out.
