Chemicals on Food

Noodles are treated with agent borax. Fish sauce is sprayed with pesticide. Prahok is dusted with insect-repellent.

Borax causes diarrhea and vomiting and also death if consumed in large quantities. Pesticide cause chest pains, night sweats, dizziness, vomiting and loss of consciousness.

People eat them everyday without knowing the danger to their health.

There's no coordination between the 4 ministries overseeing the safety of food products.
