chandigarh dhaba diesel paratha truth and diesel health hazardschandigarh dhaba diesel paratha truth and diesel health hazards

A viral video making outrage on social media such as Internet and (formally twitter) under the title “chandigarh dhaba diesel paratha” this video has gone viral on social media claiming a food vendor in Chandigarh uses diesel to cook parathas, aka a popular Indian flat bread. This three-minute-long video begins with a man (cook) at a roadside restaurant claiming in Chandigadh city in, India rolling out a dough and stuffing it with the aloo (potato) mixture. And poring a black diesel like oil on the Partha.

When asked what he was cooking by the person shooting the video, he replies that he was making a “diesel paratha”.He then bakes it in a pan and pours an excessive amount of oil on the paratha, saying it is diesel. In the video, the man at the dhaba also claims that the “diesel parathas” were sold to about 300 people every day.

After this viral video Indian Food Authority came into action. Whereas after a Chandigarh dhaba went viral for saying they make a paratha in “diesel”, the owner has clarified the situation to ANI. He said that they don’t sell anything made of diesel and also added that their food is hygienic. The man also added that the food blogger had made the video for “fun”. And may be the cook shown the non usable black Burnet cooking oil just for fun and mocking the youtuber which owner refuses to accept its actual use in food preparation and he is aware about the health hazards and his hotel follows all healthy food care checks.

Harmful Impact of Diesel Consumption on Human Body:

Diesel consumption can pose serious health hazards due to its toxic emissions. Exposure to diesel exhaust can lead to respiratory issues like coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Long-term exposure increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases, lung cancer, and other respiratory illnesses. Additionally, diesel exhaust contains harmful particulate matter and compounds like nitrogen oxides, which can exacerbate asthma and other respiratory conditions. It’s essential to minimize exposure to diesel exhaust, especially in enclosed spaces or areas with poor ventilation.

Diesel consumption primarily impacts the body through exposure to its exhaust emissions. Diesel exhaust contains a mixture of harmful substances, including particulate matter (PM), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). These substances can have various effects on the body:

Respiratory System: Diesel exhaust can irritate the respiratory system, leading to symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Prolonged exposure can worsen existing respiratory conditions like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Cardiovascular System: Inhalation of diesel exhaust can trigger inflammation and oxidative stress, contributing to the development of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks, strokes, and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Long-term exposure is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

Cancer Risk: Diesel exhaust contains carcinogenic compounds such as PAHs, which are linked to an increased risk of lung cancer. Occupational exposure to diesel exhaust is recognized as a cause of lung cancer by international health organizations.

Neurological Effects: Some studies suggest that exposure to diesel exhaust particles may have neurotoxic effects and could be associated with cognitive decline and neurological disorders.

Reproductive Health: There is evidence to suggest that exposure to diesel exhaust may affect reproductive health, including reduced fertility and adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Overall, reducing exposure to diesel exhaust through measures such as improved engine technologies, emission controls, and proper ventilation in indoor spaces can help mitigate the health impacts on the body.
