JAMMU, Nov 9: We The Human Forum for Nature and Mankind has expressed a serious concern about upsurge of cases related to serious ailments viz., kidney, throat ailments, cancer, IBS, gastroenteritis, infertility etc, among population of J&K state.
In a press statement issued by Prem Singh Spokesman of We The Human Forum for Nature and Mankind, Prem Singh said that the abrupt rise in such cases, since last few years, is considerably attributed to practice of people consuming hot cooked foods including hot curries, tea, milk, soups etc. packed and carried in plastic/polythene bags. He said that in Jammu, most of the sweet vendors shops famous for hot Purri Channi pour and pack very hot chickpeas in polythene bags for customers who buy and take away hot Purri Channa for consumption at home. Octogenarian social activist Prem Singh said that these vendors might have adopted this health hazardous practice, unintentionally or unknowingly; but where are the enforcement agencies like J&KPCB, Local Bodies, Food Safety Department?"
Prem Singh made an appeal to Governor of the state and his advisors to take serious note of this health hazardous issue, which otherwise, if ignored, might result in a catastrophic situation.
