Beetle-ridden Flour Causes Cancer
What to do with beetle-infested flour? Toss it away. It’s not food that you would be eating but cancer.
Some people don’t give a damn, dismissing it as “added dietary protein” ; others laugh it off saying it improves singing voice; still others say it’s a waste to throw it away. All these show either ignorance or lack of information. What’s the best option? None of the above. Toss it out!
Research showed that beetles secrete a substance which when mixed with flour and fed to mice caused CANCER. In some Asian and African countries observers say poor farmers use beetle-ridden flour to make cakes, biscuits, and bread. I hope not.
To stir clear of the situation, no questions asked: just throw it away to avoid the danger of cancer. ###
