Adulterated food causes lethal disease to the people who consume it. Some rogue businessmen adulterate food items with a view to making a huge profit overnight. However, it is good to learn that some initiatives have been taken lately to stop this malpractice. Some markets have been declared formalin-free. Import of formalin and other chemicals which are used in foods should be closely monitored. I felicitate the authorities for giving such efforts. I also request the government to give the malefactors involved in food adulteration harsher punishment. Formalin detectors should be made available at the shops near to bazaars. The endeavour that has been started with a few markets should be extended to the whole country.
