It is painful to mention that every year thousands of people die due to unsafe food in Pakistan. It is estimated that 2 million people die annually – including a number of children, only due to unhygienic trash food eating. Unsafe food is causing harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites that are responsible for more than 200 diseases ranging from diarrhoea to cancer.
Every year April 7 is observed as ‘World Health Day’ for promoting health safety of the people. Unfortunately the Day is celebrated in our country but there is no action for the health of people. It is our leaders’ foremost responsibility to provide better health facilities and it is also a ig responsibility of the people, especially the youth, to avoid junk food and prefer their dining with home cooked food items. — Via email
