Food adulterators dubbed enemies of humanity

UNB, Dhaka

Describing those who adulterate food as 'silent killers and enemies of humanity', speakers at a human chain yesterday urged the government to take proper initiatives, including providing necessary equipment to laboratories for to food tests, to ensure safe food for all.

Nirapad Khadda Chai, a platform for safe food, organised the human chain programme in front of the National Press Club.

Dr MA Jaher, president of the platform, said food adulteration is more dangerous than a nuclear bomb.  "Those who adulterate food are enemies of humanity and silent killers," he said, demanding that the government ensures safe food for all.

"There's no alternative to taking safe food for the survival. Safe food is one of people's basic rights but a section of unscrupulous traders adulterates food in various ways. As a result, general people are affected by many diseases, including cancer, kidney failure and diabetes," he said.

Dr Jaher also urged people to come forward to wage a social movement to ensure food safety in the country. "A social movement is a must against dishonest traders."

Nirapad Khadda Chai General Secretary Abdur Rahman said the government should provide all necessary equipment to laboratories for testing foodstuffs.

He also demanded that Prof ABM Faroque, immediate past director of Dhaka University's Biomedical Research Centre who found antibiotics Oxytetracycline, Enrofloxacin, Ciprofloxacin and Levofloxacin in samples of milk in his tests, is not harassed.
