Health News – About Sugar Cane Drinks
A friend whose father works for the government health
inspection passed on his info. Their job is to inspect all
hawkers, their cooked food, their store hygiene, etc. They
found sugar cane juice has the highest content of bacteria
among all food. In fact, it has exceeded the set limit.
Hence, these guys had to find out why. They went round all
sugar cane stores and watched the way the hawkers handled
their sugar cane, wash their glasses, their entire
procedure.. But they couldn’t find the problem.
One day, they stayed till closing time and discovered some
shocking facts! Whenever, the hawkers closed their stores,
they would wash the floor with detergent.. As we know, the
remaining sugar canes will be placed at the back of the
store, vertically standing and as sugar canes are very
porous, they tend to absorb whatever liquid around them.
Besides the soapy water, the dirt on hawkers’ boots,
cats’ urine, etc, will all be absorbed?? Now, whenever I
eat at a hawker centre, I would warn all my friends about
this and of course I stopped drinking my favorite sugar cane
A friend, who loved sugar cane juice, was pregnant. She was
always drinking sugar cane juice. Anyway, one day she
miscarried and the fetus was already like 6 or 7 months old,
I think. When the doctors did an autopsy to find out why all
of a sudden the fetus had died inside her, they found traces
of some chemical substance, which was found in cat urine…
Large traces of it.
While it would not be able to harm adults, it was extremely
toxic to babies, what more a fetus? So they tried to
determine how this cat urine thing could have ended up in
the fetus. This meant that it had to be digested by the
mother, right? And the only logical conclusion they could
come up with was that since these sugar cane juice stall
holders just leave the canes lying around on the wet and
dirty floor, it would not be impossible to think that stray
cats could have peed on those sugar canes or near those
sugar canes. So think carefully the next time you order that
favorite sugar cane juice!
Please pass this on to everyone you know in S’pore
& M’sia. Let’s take action to make this world a
better & safer place for all of us & the generations
to come..
