Cancerous oranges on sale in Ghana

Lovers of organic fruits may have to exercise some caution when purchasing them because sellers have found a disingenuous way of coloring their products to make them appear attractive.

This was revealed after an orange seller at Madina in Accra, was seen using liquid substance in enhancing the colour of the fruits to make them appear ripe for consumers with checks revealing that this was not the first time such fruit sellers were engaged in such practice.

A facebook user who was concerned about the development shared what he saw;

“In the hours of 9-10, I was in Madina and having done with whatever I went to do, I headed towards the taxi station back home. The rains started and I had to find shelter somewhere. What my eyes saw gave me the shock of life. Lord Have Mercy.

My brothers and sisters, the video and the pictures below give enough details.

One will think am eating fruit to have a balance diet and to live a healthy life, instead we are being pulled gradually to our graves. A lot of diseases with no cure affect us and we do not know where they come from.

Health practitioners will say they are degenerative or hereditary diseases. Factually I tell you, we get these diseases largely from the food we eat. Nobody cares. After all the money is what is important to a seller, at the detriment of lives.
