Want to know what you have been drinking in the name of Milk all your life? Yes! it’s not something that started happening now! it’s going on since decades (confirm in Pakistan) and the poison that you have been taking this poison in the name of the fabulous meal called MILK.
Back in September, Supreme Court ordered a chemical examination of all domestic and international brands selling packed milk in Pakistan. A two-judge bench issued the order after a petition from Barrister Zafarullah Khan against the government of Punjab for not banning these products.
University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF), the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences Lahore (UVAS) and the Pakistan Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (PCSIR) were to conduct the analysis without any leniency or fear.
Advocate Haider Rasul Mirza submitted reports against three companies to the Supreme Court due to their unhygienic practices regarding milk products after the court’s request. These companies were Al-Fazal Foods, Doce Foods, and Gourmet Foods. All businesses were asked to explain their positions. Director Punjab Food Authority was also asked to explain regarding this matter.
It’s a crime and demands capital punishment.
PCSIR submitted sealed milk analysis reports along with guidelines to the court. One report was from pasteurized milk while the other one was for UHT packed milk.
The PCSIR tested ten pasteurized milk samples. Out of all of these, Prema milk was the only one found fit for human consumption. Why only Prema? Other tested milk samples that were found unfit for health were taken from:
- Nurpur Milk
- Anhaar Milk
- Adams Milk
- Nutrivo Milk
- Doce Milk
- Gourmet Milk
- Achaa Milk
- Al-Fajar Milk.
Six UHT standardized milk samples were also tested and all but Haleeb Milk were found to be drinkable for humans (names not mentioned in the court order). UHT (Ultra Heat Treatment) involves heating milk at a temperature of 135 degrees Celsius for a few seconds before cooling it down again.
The university submitted a detailed report on the contents of these dairy products. The report said that sugarcane quantity is present in UHT Haleeb Milk and pasteurized Achaa Milk, Adams Milk, and Anhaar Milk. The report states that heavy metals, hazardous for health, were found in UHT Good Milk, Haleeb Milk, Nurpur, Nestle Milk Pak and Day Fresh. Amongst pasteurized milk samples, heavy metals were found in Nurpur, Doce, Gourmet and Daily Dairy. Only Prema Milk was proved to be Milk.
This is the so-called milk that we are drinking and giving to our children with much relief that we are contributing to their growth, but we are feeding them poison.
Milk is causing hormonal issues in kids especially the girls.
Where are all the authorities, the food authority, and the health ministry? Why have they taken silence over this issue? It’s not the first time that it came under limelight what these milk companies are doing to our health. But still waiting for action by the government.
