Did you know that a large amount of the active ingredients for drugs that are sold in America are made in China? In fact, according to the FDA, the agency inspects pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities in America every two years, but it only inspects about 7% of the overseas facilities each year. Thus, it’s impossible to ensure pharmaceutical & over-the-counter meds from China are safe.

Which Medications Contain Animal Byproducts, and Why? - GoodRx

Just recently, the FDA announced a voluntary recall of a generic, commonly prescribed blood pressure medication, Valsartan that was manufactured in China. The drug was found to be contaminated by the carcinogenic toxin N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).

Another example includes Heparin, a tainted blood thinner, that was made with unauthorized Chinese-made ingredients.  Tragically, it was linked to 246 deaths .

Eighty percent of active ingredients in America’s pharmaceutical and OTC drugs come from China and India, according to Rosemary Gibson and Janardan Prasad Singh, authors of the new book China RX: Exposing the Risks of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine.

“The FDA says drugs are safe. But the outsourcing of America’s medicine making is so complex it seems impossible to ensure that they are safe,” Gibson and Singh write.

If you want your liver to function properly (eliminate toxins and cleanse all the impurities) you should consume reishi mushrooms daily. In, a study in Food and Chemical Toxicology  showed that using reishi mushroom reversed chemical-driven liver damage in mice. Reishi mushroom is known for its anti cancer properties. It eliminates  free radicals and promotes liver cell regeneration. Just take 1/2 tablespoon a day!
