MORE AND MORE CHEMICALS ARE BEING USED IN THE PRODUCTION OF FOOD AND AGRICULTURAL PRODUCE. THIS IS MORE HARMFUL THAN HELPFUL. TO WHAT EXTENT DO YOU AGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT?
Nowadays, the practice of applying chemical additives to foods and agricultural produce is renown for the negative side effects. Furthermore, human health is the primary issue, followed by the threat of a contaminated environment in which people’s lives are gambled away. However, the use of chemical additives is useful for merchants, especially those dealing with overseas trade, as they help generate considerable profits.
Firstly, poor health affects the mental and physical capabilities of an individual. A good example of this is canned goods such as sardines and instant noodles. Indeed, monosodium glutamate, known as food seasoning, works as a preservative hoping to impress our taste buds by adding flavour, despite the fact that it weakens our intellectual ability. To be more precise, the food we eat certainly has an impact on our minds and bodies.
Moreover, one of the consequences of the use of chemicals is pollution. Pesticides used in farming related industries are a threat to humans and animals respectively. Anti-pesticide chemicals combined with natural air or fresh water undoubtedly provide an unhealthy habitat for all living things.
On the other hand, chemical additives are a big help for product exporters as they tend to lengthen the freshness of a specific item to be sold abroad. For example, the Philippines publicized that the exporting of goods led a tremendous increase in their income even though pollution is quite common in this area. The Filippino population absorbed the pollutants emitted from chemical factories, contributing to the different diseases prevalant in their society.
Overall, the usage of chemicals exposes many different people to hazards, but through proper awareness in this matter, the risk will be lessened. In addition, chemical additives are an important sector in the export economy, primarily due to thier ability to keep foodstuffs fresher for longer, pleasing the customers.
