2 WAYS TO DETECT AND REMOVE CALCIUM CARBIDE OR PESTICIDES FROM FRUITS

So I heard it yesterday that Nafdac has prohibited selling of fruits such as banana, mango and so on: ripened with calcium carbide (Cac2).

Harmful effects of Calcium Carbide
1. It can cause cancer.
2. Dizziness and stomach pains.
3. Sleepiness and mental confusion.
4. Memory loss

How to detect Cac2 on fruits

1. Light a match stick near the fruit, if it sparks and continue to burn rapidly, note that there is Calcium carbide powder rubbed on the fruit.

2. If the fruit or banana looks so ripe and fine without any blackspot, note that it's ripened with calcium carbide.

How to remove calcium carbide on pesticides on fruits


1. Wash your fruits inside a mixture of salt water before consuming, or

2. According to Ortintin.com research
