Deadly Fruits and Veggies - Be Careful !

Yesterday i went to buy few fruits in sector 37. Noida. While i was picking Dark Red Apples which we usually find on top shelves and are priced higher than normal ones. I picked one apple and out of curiosity i started scratching the outer skin of the apple with my car keys. To my surprise some white powdered kind of stuff started coming out. I immediately asked this vendor and he said "Sahib aap regular customer hai, aap matt leejiye woh wala seb, woh sahi nahi hota".. I could understand from his smirk that something is really fishy here.

When i reached home, i googled a bit and found that these apples are coated with wax in slums and they lead to deadly diseases like cancer. I even found that the Strawberries are coated with red paint (Sprayed from deodorant like bottle) which are being sold..

I wonder what effect these things would lead to growing child or a patient who is recovering from some disease. How can we deal with such problems? I am sure this information was useful to share with innocent audience/consumer like you. Please spread this information and let’s not pay for poison anymore. Does any law exists to protect us from these money mongers?

If our country can sue Nestle for being culprit on context of Lead content, then this is more serious issue.

Request Jago Grahak Jago team to take serious actions and discuss this with health ministry and create more awareness through print media .

Thanks more

What actions are being taken by local administration in such matters? more  
In case of vegetables farming methods should improve by not adding harmful manure so that vegetables output is pure and tasty. more  
These apples, mangoes etc all fruits are sprayed with chemicals to make them ripe early and look reddish and orangish in case of mangoes. The mangoes sprayed with chemicals get riped before time and hence the bhajiwallas get more money for the riped mangoes.Mostly all the retail shops especially Reliance Mukesh Ambanis fruits are of such chemicals spray. You should report to the govt for this more  
My analysis in this subject is that 90% of the food items being sold to us now are adulterated. I will not be surprised if it is 100 also. Few months back I raised this issue but didn't catch anyone's attention. Thank god it has come up now. The media is blaming tobacco for cancer but there are so many people now a days getting cancer because of these reasons. And he worst part is these are slow poisons and attacks body when we get older. So the children and old age people have the maximum risk. Few are happy with this as Cancer treatment has become a big business now. We need a country wide awareness and movement for the same. more
