Bangladesh: Time to end food contaminationAs the economy is moving ahead, the Bangladeshi people are consuming more meat, fruits and vegetables than ever. But with the increased consumption, concerns about food safety have also heightened.
Many farmers, for example, use pesticides to protect their crops from insects, rodents and weeds. Often, they overuse pesticides for a greater output. The excessive use of these chemicals however significantly damages the organic properties of the crops.
Three-fourths of the marketed vegetables, fruits, and fish contain pesticides and formalin residues. The consumption of such foods might lead to serious diseases.
On top of that, thedailystar.net learned of a shocking study that found that 98 percent of the water kept in jars - used by millions of people every day -contains E coli bacteria. This might result in a serious public health crisis in the near future.
The authorities should implement the existing laws that prohibit food adulteration.
