Stop food adulteration and save lives

EVERYONE wants to live a long and healthy life. But the fact is, no one can live a healthy life with adulterated food. Now-a-days, some unscrupulous businessmen add formalin to food stuffs to preserve them for a longer period. This formalin is harmful for human health. Very often people buy fruits and eat them without washing them with water properly. This is harmful. According to scientists, these fruits should be kept in water for 30 minutes to free them from formalin. This rule is hardly followed and as a result, people who eat those fruits may fall sick. For example, they may develop kidney and liver problems. We ought to be aware of such consequences. In various fruit markets, some businessmen do this trick to earn more money. Actually, it is not possible to keep fruits in fresh condition for a long time without preservatives. The government should make arrangements to ensure that no businessman can add formalin to fruits. Several tests are available for examining presence of formalin in fruits.
