We're not even boycotting Iranian oil when Iran's leaders are corrupt, borderline terrorists and hate our guts. Europe is and look how well it's doing for them. If we were to boycott, my thinking is that we'd start there. We're not an isolationist nation and I hate to see so much anti-China sentiment going around. Anti-Asian really. China's our ally for one and another thing, call me Jon Huntsman but we need China.Actually, yes we can. Buying power is one of the most powerful ways people can make their voices heard.No, and I'm not one of the ones complaining about Chinese food standards. I'm just happy to have food any more that I can afford. We can't have it both ways. If we want food made here, we have to make it here or stop complaining and putting blame on other nations. It's that simple. IDK I ate dollar store cookies a few weeks ago (made in India not China), and I'm still alive.I think it's important to remember that China is a communist country. The CPC is corrupt, oppressive and disorganized. The quality of the products that are produced in China is most likely a reflection of the political, economic, and social environment--not necessarily a reflection of the Chinese people, their standards or their values. The Chinese aren't a homogenous group, much like "American" applies to a variety of ethnic/religious/cultural/etc. groups in the US.
BTW, although the article is about a folk remedy in South Korea, it does say that the pills were manufactured in China.
Even so, as Norah stated, it's probably an obscure practice, or at least limited to a small group of people. The article doesn't state how widespread or popular the pills are.
Finally, are you currently out plowing a field Norah? Your advice is overly-simplistic.
We are a global society. We can't just boycott a country's goods because we don't agree with its policies. Blame our leaders for their policies that discourage American agriculture like spiking property taxes.
