12 th episode of "Satyamev Jayate" telecast on 22nd July, 2012 on National Channel, Star TV. The theme of the episode was "Water: Every Drop Counts" hosted by Amir Khan.
Ravi Agarwal (Director, Toxics Link) was one of the eminent guests on the show.
He explained how polluting the water with toxic wastes, especially lead, can be dangerous to health. Farmers grow their crops using the polluted river water. When we consume those vegetables and fruits, the toxicities enter our system and can affect motor co-ordination in children and even foetuses. The current generation’s lack of concern has already begun to affect the next generation. There are laws to tackle this but no one is enforcing them.
