A normal day of an Indian:
Morning starts with drinking milk that adulterated with dish washing powder,
Taking an Apple (that coated with wax) to keeps the doctor away,eating Chapatti made in adulterated wheat powder(sand,rodent hair,dust...), list goes on.Adulteration is a huge problem in this country like many other problems, India is a big country so the problems we facing is always huge.
- Milk is the most common target for adulteration, Water,Starch, Hydrated lime, Sodium Hydroxide and sodium carbonate, formalin, sugar, ammonium Sulfate. A private milk company (Arogya) got banned in Kerala because of adulteration. Most of the dairy products are not seems to be good. Drinking fresh milk is safe but availability is the factor that keeps the dairy companies alive.
- Edible Oil: in edible oil, our legends mixing Argemone oil, mineral oils and Castor oil.
- Butter and Ghee: Margarine,Vanaspati and Starch.
- Lentils(dal in Hindi )and Wheat products: Clay, stone, gravel (all Eco friendly..?),cobweb, insects,rodent hair etc.In wheat products(Atta,maida,sooji), sand,soil,insects,cobweb,rodent hair and iron fillings. I could have missing some ingredients here, Because new technology exist in adulteration too.
- Food coloring: toxic dyes are used in oils and flavors in sweets, Snacks like gopi and Chicken manjurian,Biscuits,chips,pickles,ice creams and soft drinks. oops no one is safe.
- Fruits: Like i mentioned above, Apples were coated with wax for its shiny looks(like facial?), Mangoes and Sapota(Zapota, Chiccoo) fruits mostly ripen in artificial methods. Harm chemicals involving in these processes.
- You know what is inside the iron tablets that prescribed to pregnant women in India?* Shockingly, iron particles.. (after knowing this some physicians not suggesting this..) You know Who making this Tablets? The famous Pharmaceutical company, Ranba_y.
The ignorant Adulteration Chain:
An adulterated milk maker can drink pure milk,But he cannot avoid eating adulterated Chapati or other food items. Like this the Chain of adulteration go on and on.Making money is the only motive for adulteration . without understanding, no one can stop adulteration.
