It is painful to mention that every year, thousands of people die due to unsafe food in Pakistan. It is estimated that 2 million people die annually including a number of children. Unsafe food is causing harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites, which are the responsible for more than 200 disease ranging from diarrhoea to cancer. Every year April 7 is held for World Health Day for promoting the health and safety of the people. Unfortunately, the day is conducted in our country but not any action is done for the health of people. The half of population is compelled to eat unsafe food which is increasing the deaths toll on daily basis. Mostly, the poor people are deprived from clean food as they are unable to get safe foods. It is our leaders’ foremost responsibility to provide better health facilities and provide clean foods.
