China, without a doubt is a dangerous place. My mother is from China, and through trips there over the years, I've come to realise how moral compass is simply not established in China. People don't have rights, people don't have choice. And the worst part is they either don't know or don't care. I think the villages and rural areas are much better. No pollution, less state control, although poverty is rife.
@sagevalentineee Communism is always like that. More people died in China than in the Soviet Union, Mao slaughtered them like he would insects. And people are stupid enough to promote that in the west like morons.
Yes, it's true many don't understand China's realities.
@sagevalentineee You should make posts here and expose them. People don't know what they're playing around with when they get involved with communism.
lol... y'all act like its 1950... go read up and watch videos of modern China...
@iFarted Fuck modern China, I know about the social credit scores, facial recognition programs, organ harvesting gulags.

Ok so a few things you can't blame the government or the companies for selling their products. You ultimately make the decision what you put in your body. If you buy and eat junk that's your own damn fault. Also schools teaches what to eat and what not to eat. They also teach you how to read nutrition facts. Again if you wish to not follow it, that's your own fault.I live in America and I choose not to stuff myself with junk. And when I do eat out I usually try to get a healthier option.
@hellacray The government actually almost banned the dancing older people because they were causing too much noise at night. Some dance sessions were becoming like night clubs for older adults and neighbors couldn't sleep. I think now they've chosen to go along with it somewhat because it is good PR for visiting vacationers. Some foreigners join them when they come. I do think we get a crazy amount of information that I guess people choose to ignore. I'm not sure how we can shift people's thinking. I do wish there were more exercise programs for people who have low incomes. I think some people just don't know what options are out their to eat healthy. If you walk through a Dollar General there are all kinds of better choices including , to my surprise, frozen brussel sprouts so people can pick up a large candy bar or a bag of brussel sprouts.
That reminds me there's this thing called YouTube which literally has tons of videos that teaches you pretty much everything. There's even videos showing you how to shop healthy on a budget. If you need to follow a program they have that there too. People are just lazy, and prefer to play victim. When in reality if you have the desire you can make it happen. by the way there are tons of frozen bags of veggies in my local store they sell like 3lbs bags for less than $5. So don't tell me it costs too much to eat healthy.
@hellacray I had to go to a food bank one time. They had whole wheat bread there. I bit old but I could toast it. They gave me a bag of canned and boxed foods and I returned the cake mix and something else more sugary. I had come too far in my health self care to back slide just because it was tough. I bought fruits and vegetables off the last sale table that were still in decent condition. Bruised applies I could just cook. I cut out extra snacks and bought boxed cereal on sale for snacks. I never told my daughter how bad things were so she was a bit salty losing her snack crackers. It was right after I separated from my ex husband and my mom died so that might be why I didn't tell her.
I volunteered at our local main food bank in the last year and I was really surprised how many healthy food donations there were there. It just requires someone to tell the volunteer staff I'm on a special diet and they try their best to find options like when someone said they were on a low salt diet.
That's great so yeah people can eat healthy if they choose to even on a tight budget.And to be fair I've seen gym memberships as low as $10 a month. It may not have all the fancy stuff, but as long as it has the essentials you're set.
Hold on hell cat!!! I am not saying it is completely the government's fault. But the government allow certain companies to put that junk the shelves. Like I, said it's said that a head of lettuce is more expensive than a burger from fast food places. I was taught by my father and grandmother how not to eat at those places. And how to cook my own food. Hence the reason I, became a chef. On on the you tube thing. That made me laugh. Lol. You know there are still people who can afford to get online. You know that right? You also act like that everyone can afford all these things. Not everyone can afford to go to the gym. Not saying that is an excuse of not exercising. But, when you come from certain area's. You don't always have access to certain things. Shit, everyone can't afford 10 a month. Somepeople would rather pay for bus fair to work than cab fair, bus fair to the other side of the city. Where the rich folks like to go to the gym. A lot of inner cities have gotten rid of ymcas, or even local tracks and gyms. When I, was growing up. They were everywhere. So, don't say it's easy. When they want you struggle and go to places. So there rich friends can get richer.
yes the younger generations are having more weight issues due to dietary changes and the U. S. cigarette companies focused on the Middle East and Asia to boost their cigarette sales. Plus the added stressors have made people reach for cigarettes to relax
I think the stress and weight added to the Gaokao makes it much tougher for Chinese children
