U.S. Demand for Human Hair Grows, Used in Wigs, Pizza
FoxNews ^

Posted on 01/07/2008 6:53:43 AM PST by Scythian

About 15 tons of it on a recent day, imported from China, neatly pressed into mats and ready to ship to farmers and nursery growers who swear by the horticultural benefits of Blacker's hairy wares.

The mats stored in southern Miami-Dade County are part of a world marketplace for human hair. Uses range from the obvious, such as false eyelashes and wigs, to the more obscure: it's a common raw-material source for l-cysteine, an amino acid frequently used in baked goods such as pizza dough and bagels

KEYWORDS: aminoacid; aminoacids; bagel; bagels; food; futureoffood; hair; hairusedasfood; humanhair; lcysteine; nematode; parasites; pizzadough; wig; wigs
Talk about mass importation of parasites, this is insane, especially with the nematode problem that is ravaging China currently. Now they're using this hair all over the soil near crops, and you can bet these nematodes and other parasites are being widely spread across America.

Article says it is boiled at 120 degrees. I don’t know how they boil something at 120 degrees unless they’re on top of Mt. Everest.

The hair "is boiled in 120-degree water"

Are there different natural laws and physical phenomenon in China?

Think again! A pressure cooker allows one to raise the temp. by increasing the pressure.

Why do we need to import hair from China? Can’t we grow our own? What’s the WTO stance on this.

http://blog.barofintegrity.us/2008/01/06/human-hair-market-growing-fast.aspx

Background:
 

http://www.ispub.com/ostia/index.php?xmlFilePath=journals/ijto/vol2n1/soy.xml

 

Abstract
Recent reports of problem foods in Mainland China have raised global concerns about the safety of Chinese food products. Drawing on reliable data extracted from Chinese newspapers, magazines and the Internet, this report, the second in the series, takes a closer look at the hair-made soy sauce, a common kitchen-accessory for marinating and seasoning foods. It seeks to inform the scientific and medical communities regarding the potential short- and long-term epidemic consequences of consuming such soy sauce

 

 

[NOTE:  The journalists then found the amino acid syrup manufacturer (a bioengineering company) in Hubei province. When asking how the amino acid syrup (or powder) was generated, the manufacturer replied that the powder was generated from human hair. Because the human hair was gathered from salon, barbershop and hospitals around the country, it was unhygienic and mixed with condom, used hospital cottons, used menstrual cycle pad, used syringe, etc.]

 

 

This company makes amino acids and sells them as a food supplement out of Shenyang. I can't help but wonder what else the amino acids are made out of. The hospital they harvest body parts from is right there.

The technicians admitted that they would not consume the human-hair soy sauce because the dirty and unhygienic hair was used to make amino acid syrup ( 1, 2 ). A quality monitoring staff also revealed that though the hair may not be toxic itself, it definitely consisted of bacteria and other micro-organisms ( 1 ).

See main link for foot notes. I'm too grossed out to update all the html

Step one: collect Human Hair from Hospital.

WHAT HOSPITAL? Liaoning Provincial Thrombosis Hospital?

China harvesting inmates' organs, journalist says

Excerpt:

A Chinese official was the first person to reveal that secret medical work was being done at the Liaoning Provincial Thrombosis Hospital of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine, in Sujiatun, a suburb of Shenyang, the major city in northeastern China, he said.

Mr. Jin then said he found out that a large underground prison was built beneath the hospital and that members of the outlawed Falun Gong religious group were being held there. As many as 6,000 people are thought to be held prisoner at the underground facility, he said.

The hospital is harvesting the organs of the prisoners, including kidneys, livers, and eye parts, he said. The organs are then sold to people, from both China and abroad, who need medical organ transplants.

 

 

 

The National Traditional Chinese Medicine Thrombus Treatment Center in Shenyang City. According to a former nurse who worked there, the Sujiatun death camp is in an underground complex connected to this hospital.

The furnace unit on the southwest side of the hospital. There are two doors leading to the underground complex of the Sujiatun death camp. According to the witnesses, the remains of Falun Gong practitioners are incinerated here after their organs are extracted.

Water boils at 100 Celsius.

At standard atmospheric pressure. In a pressure cooker, you could boil it at 120 Celsius.

It would take DNA analysis to determine if it’s animal or human treated like animals hair.

No, but yes, there are parasites that can survive a 120 boiling like a walk in the park, and I know this first hand.

No, it was originally linked to FR. The broken hyperlinks were from http://www.ispub.com/ostia/index.php?xmlFilePath=journals/ijto/vol2n1/soy.xml

It was first posted here on this thread:

Shoulder length or longer

Long as God can grow it
