China has been producing fake rice for at least four years and it is still on the market. Its been reported that this “rice” – believe it or not – contains poisonous plastic called resin, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and other chemicals used in pharmaceutical tablets. It is shaped like regular rice grains and can cause damage to the digestive system, causing serious health issues.

People need to be careful about where they buy their food and what they eat. There’s been a constant rise in degenerative diseases like cancer in the country. What we eat and how we live contributes majorly to this disease incidence. Regulatory bodies like NAFDAC need to do a better job of protecting the health of Nigerian citizens.
