HEALTH AND NUTRITION

FSSAI, HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OURS. THEIR CONCERN IS LIMITED TO CHECK THE QUALITY LEVEL.ITS A GOVT BODY AND YOU KNOW WELL THAT THE GOVT ORGANISATIONS WORK UNDER CERTAIN RULES .FSSAI MAY HAVE LOT OF PRESSURE OF WORK.
HENCE ITS BETTER ,IF WE , YOU OR OTHERS AS DOCTORS OR NUTRITION EXPERTS WRITE ABOUT EATING HABITS, BALANCING OF PROTEINS, VITAMINS AND MINERALS IN BODY.
WHAT SHOULD BE EATEN TO INCREASE PROTEINS AND AVOID EXTRA FATS.AS A FAMILY MEMEBER, WE SHOULD TELL OTHERS ABOUT THIS, IN LOCAL CIRCLES OR ELSE WHERE.
FOR EXAMPLE, MY SON, USES A PULSE LIKE THING "MATKI" BOTH TIMES TO INCREASE PROTEINS,AND BELIEVE NONE VEG IS THE ONLY SUBSTITUTE, SUCH CONFUSIONS,NUTRITION EXPERTS CAN MAKE CLEAR.
SEASONAL FRUITS PROVIDE US WITH RARE ELEMENTS.
CONTINUOUS USE OF COPPER BOTTLES FOR WATER IS HARMFUL, SOME PEOPLE SAY.
DIETICIANS CAN HELP COMING GENERATIONS AND EXPLAIN HOW OUR FOREFATHERS LIVED A HEALTHY LIFE WITHOUT TODAYS FACILITIES. more

There is YES and NO both. Copper vessels when kept properly cleaned are definitely killers of various germs. Micro amounts copper which gets dissolved can only kill the bacterias, but is totally harmless against human beings, and also provides several other benefits also. Some bacterias also try to attach themselves to the walls of copper vessels, and thereby also absorb copper and thus gets killed.
Copper vessel gets tarnished after an interval, because atmospheric oxygen and moisture acts on copper forming copper oxide and copper hydroxide. Thus such tarnished copper utensils becomes vulnerable to acidic materials, whether generated by bacterias or introduced due to household activities. Lemon, tamarind, almost all fruit juices(pomegranate is a leader) are acidic. If such materials comes in contact with a copper vessel, particularly the tarnished vessels, readily dissolves higher amounts of copper - which are definitely harmful.
Now-a-days some 'non-tarnishing' copper vessels are seen in the selves of various shops, including e-commerce platforms. I am not sure about the chemistry/technology of such products. I shall be thankful to get an enlightment. more  
In to-day's media age, particularly electronic media age, we are confused in all respects because of contradictory reports & recommendations on each and every issue by different agencies & authorities. It would, therefore, be better to follow and practise those of our forefathers who had live their lives quite healthy without support of today's modern facilities and life style. more  
I agree with MrJAYKUMAR,it has been held that Copper vessels are potentialcarriers against harmful bacteria, like H1N1. Let the writer turn to authorised Texts, before preaching more  
"CONTINUOUS USE OF COPPER BOTTLES FOR WATER IS HARMFUL " - I am really interested to know the harms caused , as there is a wide spread belief that drinking water from copper container is good for health . I WAS PLANNING TO BUY ONE AND STORE WATER IN IT BEFORE DRINKING . more  
Yes, you are very correct FSSAI is an authority o frame guidelines to set standard of food items that's healthy and safe. It also keep vigilance to on such norms. Food & Nutrition is altogether a different issue no way connected with FSSAI. Doctors and Food & Nutritionist can share their expertise on such critical issue not others. There is a separate discipline in institution and now a days such curriculla is included in higher classes of school level. Let's start with someone who has the expertise on it. It would be a good beginning. more
