Chinese food so bad they kill themselves

I just have to say that our reliance on a foreign country to provide "cheap" food and food-related products (like spices, seasonings, and food coloring), as well as toothpaste and other staple items will wreak havoc on our nation. Forget about terrorism -- this kind of stuff will kill or injure millions of us without us even knowing it.
