不要喝甘蔗水 Dont Drink Sugar Cane 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.

朋友的父亲替政府卫生检查工作, 是他把这项信息传开的。
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。
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。
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.

While it would not be able to harm adults, it was extremely toxic to babies, what more a fetus?

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!
