Time to hold Amazon responsible for dangerous products, e.g., Chinese made motorcycle helmets which crack on impact and magnetic toys with no labels which children swallow? Eee-gads.
True story published in the Wall Street Journal: A mom bought a motorcycle helmet on Amazon for her son who died when he collided with a car. This motorcycle helmet was labeled safe according to USA federal standards. Not safe, the helmet was made in China and re-sold on Amazon by a tiny outfit in California When tested, these Chinese made motorcycle helmets crack on impact. There’s about 4,000+ of these helmets still in circulation.
Former Amazon employee Rachael Johnson Greer managed Amazon’s safety systems until 2015. For a number of years the safety section at Amazon consisted of three persons. Greer now advises third-party Amazon sellers.
Rachael Greer estimates that in 2017 roughly 80% of Amazon’s third-party sellers did not comply with federal, state or industry safety labeling and the vast majority of issues were not having proper warnings and labels.

Let’s ask our Democrat Presidential hopefuls — Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris — what they will do about China’s harvesting of organs. These are real victims who have suffered death and mutilation for their beliefs.
Ms. Lin, Miss World Canada 2015, writes in the WSJ, “How I learned to Stop Hating Faln Gong.
A more apt title is why Ms.Lin stopped hating Falun Gong, a form of Chinese spiritual meditation exercises.
At age 13, Ms. Lin emigrated with her mother to Canada where her mother gave her a flyer uncensored information about Falun Gong. Information opened Ms. Lin’s eyes. What she learned:
Aptos Psychologist: ‘Racism!’ is all over the U.S. mainstream media. That word has become meaningless the way it’s thrown around. Look at the world and the dastardly things that governments such as China do to their citizens.
Check your medications & make sure that no drug ingredients are made in China. Better safe than sorry. Stay safe from Chinese made “adulterated” drugs based on fake data. The following is based on a Letter in WSJ August 4, 2018.
In 2017, the most warning letters for adulterated drugs issued by the FDA (see fda.gov) went to Chinese drug manufacturers. India was close behind.
One example: the anti-hypertensive drug valsartin — made in China — was recently recalled, One safe and simple solution, many cardiologists moved their patients to a different medication. But what if you like varsartin and want made in USA medications?
One excellent resource in Aptos, CA is Frank’s Pharmacy. If you or someone you know likes varsartin, you can get USA made valsartin through Frank’s Pharmacy.
China is now one of the biggest producers of drugs and drug products in the world.
Chinese drug products appear to be not trust worthy because info about them is based on fake data. Radio Free Asia reports that an internal review in 2016 by Chinese drugs regulators showed that the Chinese fabricated the test results.
One resource available through Amazon books and on Kindle is ” China RX : Exposing the Risks of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine”.
Can someone explain why one must pay via Amazon $12 for a Kindle electronic copy of “China RX” and $14 for a paper copy? Shame on Jeff Bezos!
