The bigger sizes of vegetables available in the market may look attractive, but you should think twice before purchasing them. They are the results of oxytocin hormones injected in fruits and vegetables to make them bigger and greener in comparison to normal natural sizes to attract the consumers.
Most of the fertilizers are expensive so farmers use hormone injections which are available at cheaper rates. Vegetables that have been grown with the help of chemicals or hormones will not show its adverse effect on human health immediately after consumption. But it can have an effect later. Unfortunately, there is no way to visually distinguish between a normal vegetable and one that's been pumped with oxytocin.
Besides oxytocin, there's other documented chemicals used to dress up produce in India, such as copper sulfate to artificially enhance the colors of fruits and vegetables and calcium carbide for quick ripening. Both are known to have negative human health impacts.
Continuous use of chemical fertilizers depletes soil
quality. As a result, the food produced in these soils
have less vitamin and mineral content.
