Use Of Raw Milk Causes Many Diseases: Experts Say

Poor hygiene in dairy shops is endangering the health of citizens and it can lead to the spread of diseases, health experts say.

The use of raw milk due to flies and dirt can cause diseases, as owners do not take proper hygiene measures.

Health experts say that raw milk and open sweets such as jalebi are an open invitation to spread germs, raw milk does not contain nutrients while it is adulterated.

Citizens say shopkeepers should take significant steps to keep raw milk safe.

It should be noted that 90% of people in Pakistan use raw milk which is a matter of concern. Except for a few countries, raw milk is not sold all over the world.

According to a recent economic survey, the country’s annual milk production is over 50 billion litres, while 75% of the population does not have access to quality milk.

Contaminated water is mixed in raw milk, various chemicals are added to thicken it, and no attention is taken to check the quality of the milk.

If halal animal’s milk is not boiled in a few hours, the number of bacteria in it becomes so high that it deteriorates, so it has to be boiled immediately, after which if you keep it at normal temperature, it spoils in six hours and if you cool it, it spoils in eight to ten hours.

Similarly, to meet the shortage of supply and demand of milk, water is added to it, the quality of which cannot be said.

In addition, some cowherds inoculate their buffaloes with certain vaccines that give them faster and more milk, and these injections are dangerous to the health of both the animal and the user.

It is important to heat the milk immediately to check the quality of the milk bought from the market or a cow and to keep it safe for a long time. The purity of the milk after heating it can be easily judged by its cream. If the remaining cream feels oily, know that the milk is pure, if it feels dry, then the milk is adulterated.
