The residents both of cities and villages in Nepal often face risks to their health and life almost everyday. Out of many, some risks arise from the adulterated, germ infested unhealthy foods. The amount of adulterated foods that we have been eating makes us vulnerable to many diseases. However, we have been surviving many of such adulterated foods is a miracle. The way the Nepali are consuming unhealthy foods, they have to have shorter age or life expectancy than they are having now. But it seems that the Nepalese are a great fighter when it comes to ward off different kinds of health disorders and diseases.
Edible items ranging from sweets, milk, water, rice, oil, lentils and spices with several other items such as juice and beer are also contaminated which make them inedible for healthy persons.
Many among us have had digested several such edibles, along with all the dirt and filth. And more surprising is the fact that several of us are still alive and kicking, despite the fact that the authority having the responsibility of looking after the well-being of the general public is often found taking less care about general sanitation.
The kitchens, fields and factories where the edibles are made or grown are hardly examined for their sanitation effectively by the concerned authorities. Because of the government authority’s failure to maintain a close scrutiny of the eateries and market owners, several edible goods being sold in the market are found to be adulterated with non-edible items posing a great risk to our health.
The new revelation has exposed toughness of the many Nepalese whose bodies can fight against all kinds of dirt, filth and germs. The capacity to tackle the challenges of the life-threatening germs, it seems, has been acquired from years of closeness with the same elements.
An average Nepali villager is used to pass their days rearing animals and working in the fields and live in unhygienic surrounding is a common practice. As part of their rural life, they live in close vicinity with animal excreta without suffering any serious harm. They are also capable of tackling the challenges of common diseases.
Unlike in other nations, the Nepalese people’s tryst with dirt and filth never ceases even if they migrate from the remote villages to the city areas. Most of the men and women who pass their youth or childhood in village migrate to the city like Kathmandu looking for good education and jobs. The city welcomes them with rising pollution and piling garbage which only consolidate their toughness in facing any eventuality caused by filth and unhygienic condition.
The city also gives them filth and dirt laden edibles in return for their hard-earned money. Such adulterated or unhygienic items are always dangerous to health. But the risk to our health notwithstanding, the average Nepali is always on the move to fulfill their dreams, to grab the opportunity for a better future, without giving much care to the adulterated or unhygienic edibles.
According to the reports, the city of Kathmandu is one of the most polluted, unhygienic place in the world where daily arrival of a large number of people often makes the place inhabitable. The burgeoning population coupled with greed on the part of businessmen has put the Nepali people at another risk - the risk to their life through the vastly adulterated and contaminated eating items.
