China’s “Gutter Oil” Will Churn Your Stomach

The hot, new addition to China’s world famous cuisine is something you should probably never eat. Ever.

Word on the street is that a growing number of food vendors throughout China are cooking their food in something they call “gutter oil.”

If you think the name sounds disgusting, wait until you hear what it is. It’s basically any type of oil that was gathered from sludge found in streets, dumpsters, garbage cans, dead animals and raw sewage. Uh huh, sewage.

Until now, because you’re going to help me spread the word, right?
