Milk is considered the purest drink that is consumed by the gods and humans alike in India. Beware, your daily glass of good health could actually be doing you harm. Milk adulteration has reached crests where milk is openly tainted with detergent, fat and even urea, besides the age-old dilution with water. What's particularly worrying is the kind of substances used to adulterate, including toxic chemicals.

The ingredients like Sweet oil, Urea, Milk Powder, pure milk and some of the chemicals are added along with water and churned to produce few hundred liters of milk. Don’t be surprised if the milk is thicker and enhanced in volume. The government must focus on raising the risks to the adulterator. However, Ensure to boil you milk for longer duration and see that you are not in an illusion the milk is thick.
