    GOOD JOB CHARLIE!

    This is precisely why the other Chengdu website SUCKS b*lls (forgive my disparaging language), I think the other site is solely an advertising site for money, not to help local Chengdu people.

    BTW, anyone know who runs that site? I would like to have a nice discussion with that SOB.

    I hate people that are only interested in their greed while pretending to serve the good people of CD.

    Thanks Andy for the information.


    @merior

    That’s my general understanding as well regarding countryside land and purchasing.

    There are quite a few foreigners leasing land in Yunnan farming.
    The ones that do not have a local spouse generally have or are trying to get a WOFE.

    @Andy,

    Where do you raise your bees (honey), you produce honey, right?

    BTW guys, on this topic of Health/organic food etc,
    there are quite a few laowai doing this in Yunnan Province.

    Some own the land, many others are leasing the farm land.
    Years ago I read that some families in Beijing would rent a plot of land to farm so in this way they would know the quality of the food.

    I often have thought about doing this in Chengdu, or just outside of CD, instead of purchasing organic from the local farms.

    Pragmatically it may not work, but I wonder if there is now more desire for this sort of thing??

    I would be interested in this sort of thing, or a similar type project, permaculture, hobby farm, organic farming, etc.

    Gout can occur earlier than the 60’s just like almost any other issue with health.

    I personally know two in their 40’s that have it, one here in chiner…probably from all that cheap beer! 🙂

    I purchase from overseas, no problems ever.

    Testing can be with urine, and ph levels change throughout the day, that’s why most of those testing strips suggest multiple days to get a solid test answer since the levels fluctuate.

    An annual test for Ph levels doesn’t seem like that would let you know how you body is doing based off of your diet, right?

    Anyhoo, I may test since I am very curious of where my gut is at…

    OH, cool.
    I think the test strips would be more accurate because you test everyday, multiple times a day if wanted, and for multiple days to get a hopefully more accurate overall reading rather than a “one-time” reading….

    I was looking at ordering some, but was thinking of staying away from taobao and order from overseas.

    I have never seen that “equation”  before on any type of list or chart of foods, so who knows.
    That would be the thing to figure out, and I have wondered about this, and how one determines how alkaline you are.

    I imagine this is why people that try to heal cancer naturally go almost completely leafy green diet.

    Btw, with these “charts”,  certain foods will often be contradictory from chart to chart, so don’t know what to make with that, so I would look at a few main websites when determining which foods are more alkaline and not.

    And, conversely, certain foods are always listed in the same spot no matter the chart.

    There are charts that are like a “formula”, like the link below.

    http://msaprilshowers.com/body/alkaline-and-acid-ph-balance-in-the-body/attachment/ph-chart/

    But I suppose the “diet” could be depressing but its almost like a vegetarian diet, not too bad.
    I rarely ate veggies and was mostly a meat eater before coming to China, and now really don’t mind the veggies.

    And even if we are stuck eating some things that are GMO or just poisoned, then that would be a big reason for keeping the body alkaline as you know it supposedly does not allow toxins and disease to grow.

    I think some grains are fine to eat as well, i.e. quinoa and millet and others like black and brown rice, and as long as one stays away from refined crap…but baozi is so tasty!

    @andy,

    Eat Organic.
    Sarah said eat brown rice, which is healthier than white, but if it’s not organic that it’s still not solving your main concern.

    I think the only solution to the concern is on a different spectrum, taking care of gut health and staying alkaline, among other procedures to clean the toxins out from the body, as Merior was alluding to.
    Carcinogens and other known and unknown toxins cause cancer which is most likely from the pesticides used with the foods we are concerned with, therefore if we can’t get away from eating these,  we only have one option left.

    I think If I was a newb in all this esl/travel industry, I would shun China.
    I’ve been here for a decade and life was sure “grand” back in the good ‘ol days! Ha.

    Now it’s becoming a nightmare to just come and be a dancing monkey in this up and coming police state.
    And this procedure is also for those just Changing jobs now, isn’t it?

    Crazy stuff.

    Sure you do Charlie, a couple years ago these names came up on a post, that’s where I learned about them.

    I believe that the U.S. Consulate buys from one of these, don’t recall which…I think the farm in N. Chengdu is the one.

    There are others, and a few that participate with Wwoof as well.
    One in Mianyang is supposedly going the permaculture/organic route.

    A few in Yunnan, and I know of a few others throughout the country, and a couple that are getting into permaculture.

    Certification is the concern. From what I know, some years ago the first “organic” farm was closed down some time ago for being fake.
    I assume that this could still be a concern. Who knows!?!?!?
