US Is Dependent On China For Almost 80% Of Its Medicine

Experts are warning that the U.S. has become way too reliant on China for all our medicine, our pain killers, antibiotics, vitamins, aspirin and many cancer treatment medicine.

Fox Business reports that according to FDA estimates at least 80 percent of active ingredients found in all of America’s medicine come from abroad, primarily from China. And it’s not just the ingredients, China wants to become the world’s dominant generic drug maker. So far Chinese companies are making generic for everything from high blood pressure to chemotherapy drugs. 90 percent of America’s prescriptions are for generic drugs.

Rosemary Gibson says that this is all part of China’s plan.

“In five to ten years we are at risk of losing our generic drug industry, because China will use the same playbook and undercut our own producers and drive them out of business,” says Gibson who is author of “China Rx – Exposing the risks of America’s dependence on China for medicine.”

So what would happen if China wants to cut the supply for our medicine or alter its quality.

“Imagine if China turned off that spigot,” said Rosemary Gibson, author of “China RX: The Risks of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine.”

“China’s aim is to become the global pharmacy to the world — it says that. It wants to disrupt, to dominate, and displace American and other Western companies.”

Many medicine used on our troops and veterans can also be sourced to China, reports Fox Business.

  1. The polititians that made us so dependent on China should all be tried for treason. China is the biggest cheater and and abuser and we need stop dealing with them. We also should stop all immigration from China.

  2. Who in their right mind allowed this to happen?? This needs to be reversed immediately, IMMEDIATELY. We have total morons in charge of way too many things here in the United States. WOW. Unbelievable. How is it that politicians and business people have absolutely NO loyalty to our country. I won’t even type what I think of these pieces of SHIT!!

  3. How in the name of God did we manage to get ourselves into a situation where 80% of our medications are coming from China-an enemy? I think this places us at a terrible disadvantage as we must defend against availability and quality. If either of those measures falter, we have a really bad problem. I imagine the reason had to do with money, but what we saved is nothing compared to what the final cost may be. Some of the people in our government and in the higher echelons of our pharmaceutical businesses have really let us down.

  4. I think this is very dangerous. We have had many edible items, like dog food, and found them to be harmful and/or poisonous . To trust China with something so necessary and disburse it to the world, can you imagine? What happens if we were to cut off ties with China? Where would we get our medicines? How safe are the medications from China to take? What kind of quality control is imposed. How do they compare to American standards?
