A syrupy poison, diethylene glycol, is an indispensable part of the modern world, an industrial solvent and prime ingredient in antifreeze. It also is a killer. And the deaths, if not intentional, are often no accident.
The kidneys fail first. Then the central nervous system begins to misfire. Paralysis spreads, making breathing difficult, then often impossible without assistance. In the end, most victims die.

Thanks for posting this. I’ve mentioned the Haiti poisonings before in a couple of China-related threads in the past, but this is by far the most detailed story on the topic I’ve seen.
I read this long article earlier and was just amazed by it. I don’t know if posting all 7 pages of it is allowed, but I hope it is. Everyone on FR needs to read this.
Stop trade with China now!
No God, no conscience.
Everyday LOW - LOW PRICES !!
Yeah, that’s the one I read earlier.
Really chilling article.
“Tidai” = substitute. What smarmy creeps the Chinese have become.
This is very similar to the thread we were on last night. But more info is at the forum for those that had trouble clicking through to the article last night.
Have become? I think they’ve been that way from the beginning. We are finally waking up. I’ve tried to avoid buying any Chinese product since we started importing them—it’s not always possible, but if I have a choice, I buy another product. If it isn’t the poisoning, it’s the slave labor. How else can you buy a hand-made quilt for a kingsize bed for $40?
Astute. And while we buy foodstuffs from these murderous thieves, our own “breakbasket” continues to hold farm sales and sell the land off to real estate developers. Maybe “cheap food” isn’t such a good idea, considering the poisonings, the adulterations, and the losses of livelihood to our own farmers.
Same goes with electrical parts. In the US there is a significant amount of detail aid to specification and code compliance. When all materials and fabrications are outsourced, then the importers file bankruptcy every 7-8 years to avoid liabilities, count on everything purchased from China to have external liabilities within 5-8 years.
3 Ceiling fans I purchased at Lowes, with the best energy savings ratings, lowest cost, ‘builder’s specials, have all smoked between 1-2 years of service. Motors are fine, but their switching capacitors have fried in each one after about 1 year of service. Not good for a component which is relied upon for unattended ventilation 24/7. When investigating the cause, I discovered a tag on the component indicating it was made in China and to call a number in LA for service. Upon contacting the trading company, they directed me to the part of the fan which likely failed and simply mailed out a replacement part, however, all the wiring is premolded at the connection points making it impossible to replace without substantially altering the connections. Took it back to Lowes and they replaced with like make and model, but now the second one has smoked. It’s purely subcomponent quality and assembly design flaws which cause these problems.
Basically the large oligopolies controlling the construction industry are cognizant of the fraud and condone this type of business. The American consumer is at risk and with substantial detriment due to this ‘new world order’ which seeks to remove national governance in favor of socialist and global reach.
IMHO, if it’s from China, I’m generally better off without it..
You touched on this (post 16) in a post last night.
Sorry about the language, nothing else seems to cover it so succinctly.
They have always been this way. The difference is that now the rest of the world has more contact with them than ever before.
