Thursday, 30/01/2014

Is a fresh glass of milk your way of living healthily?

You may want to think again if your milk is finding its way to Delhi from Uttar Pradesh, as a large portion of it is a toxic cocktail of white paint, caustic soda, detergent, shampoo, urea, starch and blotting paper that is harmful for the heart, lungs, liver - and can even cause cancer.

In a startling admission, the UP government has told the Supreme Court that adulteration of milk was rampant in the state and confessed that it has failed to take effective steps to curb it.

In an affidavit filed in court, which is hearing a PIL on the issue, Vijay Bahadur, UP government's food safety assistant commissioner, said the menace was most rampant during festival seasons when the demand peaks.

It said that out of the 4,503 samples collected between January 2012 and May 2013, 1,280 were found to be adulterated with detergent, starch, carbohydrate and whitener.

Another 613 samples were collected after August 2013 till now, out of which 207 were found adulterated.

The affidavit said cases of adulteration were most acute in Faizabad, Moradabad, Agra and Saharanpur.

The court will be taking up UP's affidavit for hearing on Thursday.
