    could you please go into detail about why these products are poisonous? i know that there has been some scandal about toxic egg yolks, but what about sugar, salt, honey, etc…

    i’d be happy if you could provide a rough translation of the text on the photos.

    well there is a lot of chemical terms in the description but in general, most of the pollution are: 1. whitening chemicals for white fungus, salt, sugar, rotten rice, etc. 2. preservatives for assorted veg and meat, canned food, etc; 3. pesticide for veg. 3. dye for chili, etc. 4. too much antibiotics or medicine for fish, pig, and other stock, etc. most of the chemicals are cancer causing.
