Is Maggi the only food item found to have high levels of harmful substance ?

No Individuals,Companies or in this case our favorite brand for more than 25 years “MAGGI” have rights to play with our health.If there is something wrong as many report suggest than Nestle should rectify it.Nestle should replace all the units of Maggi across the nation and Government should take appropriate action against Nestle.

Maggi has been the most loved brand across all age group for more than 25 years.Even in today’s scenario Maggi and Nestle are getting full support from their supporters so to appreciate the love and support they are getting Nestle should take some quick action in coming days to maintain their reputation.

But at the same time question arises in our mind if a famous brand like Maggi can be found with these problems what about the other brands available in the market.

As the matter of fact the fruit and vegetable we eat, the juices we drink have failed the test’s in many occasions across the nation

What is the central and government doing to prevent us from those who are playing with the health of others

Health minister JP Nadda said that the central government has asked reports from all states on the controversy over the quality of Maggi noodles.

The health minister said that once the central government gets the reports, a decision will be taken on the future course of action regarding the popular snack that has been pulled off sales counters after high lead content was found in samples.

“We have asked for a report from all the state governments on Maggi,” Nadda told a press conference here.

“The reports are expected to come by today (Thursday) evening, after which we will be able to take a decision,” he said.

When asked about the testing of other packaged and processed food products that whether they comply the safety standards or not,the health minister said “it is a continuous process”.

Maggie passes test in Maharashtra, Goa And Kerala. No Excess lead found in the sample collected by Maharashtra, Goa And Kerala Government.

Why Only Ban Maggie ?

Some reports suggest vegetables and fruits we eat daily are treated with harmful chemicals that are much worse than LEAD and causes cancer.

Fruits including Mango’s are treated with carbide.The use of carbide gas from calcium carbide to ripen fruits is extremely hazardous to the human body as calcium

Carbide also contains traces of arsenic and phosphorus. The practice of ripening fruits using carbide is banned in many other countries but it is freely used in India.

The use of calcium carbide is not only toxic to consumers, it may also be harmful to those who handle it. It affects the neurological system, resulting in headache,dizziness, mood disturbances, sleepiness, mental confusion and seizures on a short-term basis, while in the long-term it can cause memory loss and cerebral oedema.

Calcium carbide has cancer-causing properties and is capable of causing neurological disorders. It can result in tingling sensation, numbness and peripheral neuropathy. If pregnant women consume fruit ripened with carbide, the children born could develop abnormalities.

We are shocked that the Ministry of Agriculture and Primary Industries and the Ministry of Health had not curbed this widespread health problem despite so many reports shown on various news channels across India.The Ministry of Agriculture and Primary Industries should not be just promoting agricultural productivity, but it should more importantly, ensure the production of healthy agricultural produce. What is the point of producing more agricultural products that is unsafe to be eaten? The encouragement of the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers and other chemical inputs by the Ministry of Agriculture and Primary Industries must be stopped.

In our survey, we found fruit farmers and wholesalers rampantly using carbide gas to ripen a variety of fruits such as bananas, mangoes, pineapples and papayas.

Calcium carbide is also easily available in rural shops at RM5.50 per kilogram. The packaging showed pictures of various fruits that can be ripened by the calcium carbide.

According to a farmer, he uses about 200 grams of calcium carbide to ripen 30 kilograms of mangoes. The calcium carbide is wrapped in newspaper and placed in an enclosed box filled with the mangoes.

Frequent use of antibiotics on chicken’s.

A Report published by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), the New Delhi-based research on 30 July 2014 quoting “Indians are developing resistance to antibiotics and hence falling prey to a host of otherwise curable ailments. Some of this resistance might be due to large-scale unregulated use of antibiotics in the poultry industry”

Some Important points of the report are:-

70 chicken samples from Delhi-NCR region tested for six commonly used antibiotics

40 per cent samples test positive; residues of more than one antibiotic found in 17 per cent samples

Points to large-scale unregulated use of antibiotics as growth promoters by the poultry industry

Antibiotics that are important to treat diseases in humans, like ciprofloxacin, being rampantly used by the industry. This is leading to increased cases of antibiotic resistance in India. For instance, ciprofloxacin resistance is growing rapidly in the country

India has no regulation on controlling antibiotic use in the poultry industry, or to control sales of antibiotics to the industry. It is free for all

India has not set any limits for antibiotic residues in chicken

India will have to implement a comprehensive set of regulations including banning of antibiotic use as growth promoters in the poultry industry. Not doing this will put lives of people at risk

Antibiotics found on all major honey brands.

This could come as a shock that the honey you have been giving your kids bought from the market in the hope that it will help boost immunity and fight bacterial

infections contain varying amounts of antibiotics.According to a study carried out by the Centre for Science and Environment, most honey brands being sold in the

country contain varying amounts of antibiotics and their consumption over time could induce resistance to antibiotics, lead to blood-related disorders and injury to

the liver. CSE said the study busts the myth that commercially produced honey was a ‘natural’ and ‘pure’ product. For the study, 12 samples were picked in Delhi, all well known brands.
