    shocking news about baby carrots....

    shocking news about baby carrots....-374556_10151158186654094_1919783784_n.jpg

    i am not sure this baby carrot is available in india...real shock for me, bec i always buy this baby carrots..........

    Baby Carrots:
    The following is information from a farmer who grows and packages carrots for IGA, METRO, LOBLAWS, etc.

    The small cocktail (baby) carrots you buy in small plastic bags are made using the larger crooked or deformed carrots which are put through a machine which cuts and shapes them into cocktail carrots - most people probably know this already.

    What you may not know and should know is the following:
    Once the carrots are cut and shaped into cocktail carrots they are dipped in a solution of water and chlorine in order to preserve them (this is the same chlorine used in your pool).

    Since they do not have their skin or natural protective covering, they give them a higher dose of chlorine.

    You will notice that once you keep these carrots in your refrigerator for a few days, a white covering will form on the carrots. This is the chlorine which resurfaces. At what cost do we put our health at risk to have esthetically pleasing vegetables?

    Chlorine is a very well-known carcinogen, which causes Cancer. I thought this was worth passing on. Pass it on to as many people as possible in hopes of informing them where these carrots come from and how they are processed.

    சொன்ன ஒரு சொல்,
    விடுபட்ட அம்பு,
    கடந்து போன வாழ்க்கை ,
    நழுவ விட்டு விட்ட சந்தர்ப்பம் ,
    ஆகிய நான்கும் மீண்டும் திரும்ப
    வராது.
