How many of us know what we are actually eating?? What food does to the environment before it comes to your plate?? What food does to the farmer who is producing that food?? How safe is your food?? These are the alert questions put by Ramanjaneyulu. He mentions that the way we pollute our environment with pesticides and other harmful substances is the same that is reflected back and poisoning our plate we eat, it is a cyclical process. There were many examples quoted by him like If the lead has been added to the noodles, Then it must be even present in the aata but no one thinks of it, it is we who have contaminated the environment by harmful substances and the same is reflected to the food we eat because of the ecological cycle
