Must eat Hyper local fruit
We must all consume hyper local fruit as a mid day meal every day.
Why does fssai not educate citizens? more
National Science Talent Students, and also in Patiala's Punjabi University, in the late sixties. However the litchi fruit available in Mumbai where I worked eight years and those available did not compare in quality to what was served to us in Punjab and Haryana or in Delhi.
My latest experience with eating litchis was in June 2019 second Sunday when I chanced upon litichi vendors in Adyar, who told me the fruit were grown in Kerala.
As I had not eaten litchis for a long time I managed to eat the same (after washing well) over the next two days while sharing the same with my domestic retainer.
I found that the next day I had severe muscle cramps all over the body and suspecting either
food poisoning or blood poisoning, admitted myself to a hospital where my Creatinine level
had gone up from normal 1.1 to 2.5. While it came to normal over two days, I was perplexed
about the turn of events but after a few days came to learn about malnourished kids' dying in UP after eating litchi fruit. I wonder if there is a connection between my sudden indisposition and eating litchis in Chennai in June.
Better to stick to local fruit, I feel.
