Satyamev Jayate June 24 Episode: Watch online

Today’s Satyamev Jayate Episode was about ‘toxic food’ or ‘food adulteration’, the fruits and vegetables we eat is a cocktail of pesticides says Aamir Khan.

Several other serious issues were raised during the show..

  • There are 67 types of pesticides which are banned all over the world, but continue to be used in India.
  • Almost everyday we consume 500% more pesticides than our body can tolerate.
  • More than 40 people in a village in Punjab have died of cancer.
  • There is no organisation in India to monitor the usage of pesticides by farmers.
  • There are more than 100 ways of reducing pests without pesticides
  • The Sikkim government has banned the usage of pesticides. They hope to be a organic state by the year 2020.
  • The problem with organic fruits and vegetables is, it costs more. Which is probably one of the reasons we avoid buying them..?
