  • Despite its high consumption in Pakistan, raw milk is contaminated to the point that many disease-causing germs are not killed even if it is boiled.
  • It’s because of the filthy environment animals and their caretakers lived in, poor handling and transportation practices and the deliberate contamination done by farmers for any monetary benefit, including increasing shelf-life of milk and making it thicker.
  • The event was the PMA’s first programme of its awareness campaign on public health issues.
