    China's Hepatitis Outbreak & Toxic Air Pollution Hid From Foreign Teachers



    Not one TEFL or ESL Teacher recruiter in China dares to tell the truth to new recruits about the very real health risks you are exposed to when they come to teach in China. China's government stopped reporting their Hepatitis infection rate back in 2012. At that time almost one in every 5 people in China had at least one strain of Hepatitis. I then read these links and am amazed that the foreign embassies are not warning their citizens who travel to China for any reason. The local Chinese News even caught a major chain restaurant with over 800 locations (Yoshinoya) was not sterilizing their reusable plastic chopsticks, and were even taken uneaten portions of rice and mixing it back into the pot in the kitchen to save money!!! http://www.shanghaiexpat.com/phpbbfo...pic191218.html

    I then read the story about teachers and students at Mayflower Education in Beijing being infected, and then I am forced to wonder... Do employers in China even care if their staff and customers get contagious diseases so long as they cannot prove it came from their office or school? Only one teacher and 1 student at Mayflower admitted they were infected and yet none of the other staff nor students were sent for blood tests! I mean, isn't this the perfect legal definition of negligence?

    Now consider the air polition. I looked at the AQI logs for Beijing and Shanghai and Between November 15th and April 15th of 2015 the AQI was above 300 (Severe / Toxic Level) 38 days last year. Despite this no agents nor recruiters are even asking their clients "Do you have asthma or any respiratory disease?" If they did they could actually die in China just from breathing the poisonous air full of carcinogens. http://www.babwnews.com/2015/12/red-...ut-of-control/

    Here is a link to real-time air quality in China:

    Regarding the Hepatitis problem in China, here are some amazing statistics that show how easy it is to get infected:

    And in case you did not already know, the tap water of China is not for human consuption and contains high levels of lead, mercury, iron, and dioxins. DRINK ONLY BOTTLED WATER FROM NESTLE IF YOU TRAVEL TO CHINA. Other brands just use slightly filtered tap water.
