    Nasty Chemicals

    Do the Thais use harmful Pesticides and growth stimulants?
    I know the Chinese spray their grub with all kinds of Cancer causing shite, so i'm assuming the Thais do as well.
    I am into Organic and natural stuff. How safe is the food in an average Thai Restaurant?

    My ex told me that there are some nasty chemicals used on crops in Thailand that "can" cause health problems, she was a nurse so I think that she must have had some knowledge to say this, when she knew she pregnant she even took to growing her own corn and would only buy fruit and veg from our neighbours because she didn't trust the market produce.

    Yeah, I never believed the stories about the chemicals and bio-engineering until I grew a second head.

    Why would you assume that because China does something then the Thais must do it too?

    There is plenty of organic aquaculture going on here and the practice is expanding.

    Maybe so but the norm is still to spray as much of the cheapest poison as possible and hang the consequences, as long as kills the bugs who cares if it takes out a few bug eater too.

    Sure, but much like the rest of the World, they probably order the chemicals from Monsanto in the USA.
