THE FOOD IN CHINA IS MUCH BETTER AND MORE HEALTHY THAN THE BOXED AND CANNED CORPORATION JUNK FOOD IN THE UNITED STATES.

FRESH EVERY DAY, IN CHINA, EVEN IN SHANGHAI AND BEIJING, WHICH ARE SURROUNDED BY SMALL FARMS, MANY WITH ENCLOSED HOT-GREEN HOUSES, WHO KNOW HOW TO COMPETE AND DELIVER A GOOD, SOUND AND HEALTHY ORGANIC PRODUCT.

SMALL FARMS IN CHINA MEANS A GREAT DIVERSITY OF DIFFERENT PLANTS WHICH MEANS PESTS HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME NATURALLY TO ADAPT AND THIS LIMITS THE USE OF ANY CHEMICAL CONTROL FOR THE PRODUCE GROWN; IT'S MOSTLY A NATURAL PRODUCT HERE. IT'S THE BIG NON-DIVERSE FARMS WHERE THE CHEMICALS ARE NEEDED LIKE IN CALIFORNIA.
