The Balochistan Food Department has started a crackdown against vegetable cultivation by sewage water. Director General, Balochistan food authority major Bashir Ahmed, headed the proceedings in the area of Nohsaar, and destroyed vegetables grown on a large scale and stopped the entrance of sewage water into the fields. Cultivation of vegetables through sewage water has increased the risk of effecting health of people. According to medical experts, vegetables grown from sewage water can cause various diseases including kidney diseases, hepatitis, typhoid and food poisoning. He said that because of sewage water, there is no need for fertilizer application, and that is why sewage water is used instead of tube wells.
