2 year back I visited
to dairy farm of one of my relative there I saw the practice of injecting oxytocin
to cattle before lactating to increase production of milk getting more profit
by selling more milk with knowing its harm full effect And
the obtaining of oxytocin does not need any prescription and is simply obtainable
even on a general store of Town. On
7th of January I read an article on express tribune that government
is taking action on injecting oxytocin to animal.
(OT) is infused to cattle for milk production, has turned into a typical
practice among dairy farmers in Pakistan, and I am the eye witness of it. it
is scientifically proven that long
run use of this milk can cause adverse health problem
have pointed out that practice of this drug usage can cause hormonal
imbalance in humans
The practice of injecting
oxytocin to animals is wrong because this cause milk production painful for cattle’s and also sinks the lifetime
of the animal.
In Pakistan, regrettably oxytocin is being used
Oxytocin cause early puberty in children.
The age at which girls reach
menarche has come down harshly from 16 to 10 years of age.
Boys are identified
with gynaecomastia (breast development).
Kids are most vulnerable
to its effects and caused hearing deficiency and weak eyesight.
usage of this milk by
the expecting women may lead to abortion and babies may born with malformations
and low disease fighting levels
An injection induced cows to produce more milk
has been banned across the country after the Supreme Court of pakistan
of oxytocin in cattle’s for milk production should be forbidden
Strict checking policy should be planned and
Oxytocin should not be obtainable without the prescription.
