Health Concern

I always tell my American colleagues that they should never touch street foods in China--most of them are cooked with what is called "gutter oil" or "sewage oil." Just google "China sewage oil" and you will find out.


Yes, we researched the safety aspect fairly carefully first. And feel fine. Certainly one should be careful when choosing stalls, though.


Second the food concerns--seriously, Chinese people w/ any $$ know to eat only imported food! Heavy metals, gutter oil, bacteria and viruses, etc. etc. etc.
