The cuddly 'Beijing 2008 Olympics' mascots known as "Fuwa" could be toxic and dangerous to one's health. Chinese police have seized close to 30,000 counterfeit versions of the fluffy stuffed mascots, some made with toxic materials, in what appears to be one of the largest haul of fakes to date, the state-run Beijing News said recently. This is a warning to consumers to take care when purchasing the dolls to avoid any health risks. Over here, another health risk threatens the lives of Filipinos each day - a counterfeit president and a counterfeit administration, so toxic that people who work closely with her immediately develop a digestive illness called "daya-rhea."
