Alert - Avoid fresh sugarcane juice

Avoid Drinking Fresh Sugar Cane Juice

Please take 2 mins to read this. This email was sent by a friend whose father is working with the Ministry of the Environment in S'pore.

健康报道 - 有关甘蔗饮料
Health News - About Sugar Cane Drinks

朋友的父亲替政府卫生检查工作, 是他把这项信息传开的。他们的工作就是要检查小贩的卫生(包刮食物,环境卫生等等)。他们发现甘蔗水是最不卫生的,它含有超标的细菌。
A friend whose father works for the government health inspection passed on his info.
Their job is to inspect all hawkers, their cooked food, their store hygiene, etc.
They found sugar cane juice has the highest content of bacteria among all food. In fact, it has exceeded the set limit.

从此, 他们必须找出原因。他们去了所有的甘蔗摊子查看小贩们怎么处理甘蔗,洗杯子与及整个过程。

Hence, these guys had to find out why.
They went round all sugar cane stores and watched the way the hawkers handled
their sugar cane, wash their glasses, their entire procedure.
But they couldn't find the problem.

One day, they stayed till closing time and discovered some shocking facts!


Whenever, the hawkers closed their stores, they would wash the floor with detergent..
As we know, the remaining sugar canes will be placed at the back of the store,
vertically standing and as sugar canes are very porous, they tend to absorb whatever liquid around them. Besides the soapy water, the dirt on hawkers' boots, cats' urine, etc, will all be absorbed??


Now, whenever I eat at a hawker centre, I would warn all my friends about this and of course I stopped drinking my favorite sugar cane juice.

还有一个超爱喝甘蔗水的朋友,她怀孕了, 还时常喝甘蔗水。有一天,她流产了,而且胎儿已经六、七个月。当医生做尸检以找出胎死腹中的原因,医生发现有大量化学物质的痕迹亦出现在猫尿。

A friend, who loved sugar cane juice, was pregnant. She was always drinking sugar cane juice. Anyway, one day she miscarried and the fetus was already like 6 or 7 months old. When the doctors did an autopsy to find out why all of a sudden the fetus had died inside her. They found traces of some chemical substance, which was found in cat urine... Large traces of it.

当它不会对成人构成危害,但对婴孩却是有毒的。更何况胎儿? While it would not be able to harm adults, it was extremely toxic to babies, what more a fetus?

所以他们尝试确定为何这些猫尿会出现在胎儿。这意味着猫尿被母体吃进并消化了,不是吗? 他们得出的最逻辑结论就是小贩把甘蔗放在潮湿且肮脏的地板,而不可能假设杂散的猫尿尿在甘蔗上或其周围。所以,下次你购买最爱的甘蔗水前,想清楚。。。

So they tried to determine how this cat urine thing could have ended up in the fetus.
This meant that it had to be digested by the mother, right? And the only logical conclusion they could come up with was that since these sugar cane juice stall holders just leave the canes lying around on the wet and dirty floor, it would not be impossible to think that stray cats could have peed on those sugar canes or near those sugar canes. So think carefully the next time you order that favorite sugar cane juice!


Please pass this on to everyone you know in S'pore & M'sia. Let's take action to make this world a better & safer place for all of us & the generations to come..
