Why should we not consume adulterated food materials?

Dear Student,

Adulteration refers to adding impure matter to food & drink which is then sold to increase the quantity of the product. Adulterated foods are unsafe & impure. This is done to increase the profit of the seller but adulterated foods are a serious threat to human health & can cause death. Hence, it is harmful to consume adulterated food materials.

For example: brick powder mixed with chilli powder. Here the brick powder resembles the chilli powder hence it is used to increase the quantity of the product. This when consumed can cause irreparable damage to the health.
