HOPE very much there
Our foods have become unsafe mainly for four reasons -- growers' general unawareness about the consequence of use of chemicals, middlemen's mindless greed for money, sellers' trick to increase fresh-look and shelf-life, and govt's lack of effective will to ensure SAFE FOOD for us all.
Slowly but surely, the whole population is consuming harmful chemicals along with their food intake. People are confused about what to eat and frustrated at the onslaught of food and fruit adulteration. So far the public reaction has been rather muted.
But isn't it about time we said enough is enough?
We urge the government to take immediate steps to ensure our fundamental right to SAFE FOOD. We urge our lawmakers to raise the issue in parliament, and all civil society and media organisations to highlight this issue. Together we CAN change this slow poisoning of our children.
