Paragraph : Food Adulteration

Food Adulteration

Food adulteration means making food or drink less pure by adding or mixing another substance to it. Nowadays foods are often adulterated. In hotels and restaurants, stale and rotten foods are mixed with fresh food and served to the customers. Fish and vegetables are adulterated by putting on their chemicals and other preservatives in order to make them look fresh. Bakery and confectionery products are also prepared by using toxic substances and thus they get adulterated. Junk food contains harmful chemicals. Even fruits, milk, and beverages are adulterated. In fact, all kinds of foods and food articles are adulterated by dishonest and greedy businessmen and shop-keepers for quick and unearned profit. Adulterated foods are a serious health Hazard. They cause many fatal diseases and even death. They are the cause behind thousands of people suffering from cancer, kidney failure, heart problems, and other diseases. According to a survey report, nearly 40% of 82 samples of milk, milk products, fish, fruits, and vegetables have been found contaminated in different areas of Dhaka city. Public awareness should be created so that they become careful about buying food and food articles. Besides, the criminals have to be identified and punished. The relevant department of the government should remain ever vigilant against food adulteration and gear up their activities.
