  • Handigodu syndrome was

    Handigodu syndrome was restricted to people of a certain caste in Shimoga, which is a central district of Karnataka which is about 200-300 kms away from the villages, in Dakshin Kanada, Karnataka's southern most district, that we are talking about in the story.
    The Handigodu Syndrome is mostly about cases of physical deformities rather than cerebral palsy, mental retardation etc.

  • As per the information there

    As per the information there are many other chemicals used other than Endosulfan like Sevin,Quinalphos and Monocrotophos from 1989 to 2001. In such being the case as sevin is a known carcinogen, it is not right to blame only Endosulfan unless sufficient medical study is done to establish the fact. It is the duty of the government to find out the exact reason as ther were also reports in that area long back about heavy metals causing this disorders and also the HANDIGODU disease still prevelent in this area.

  • Environment is a sensitive

    Environment is a sensitive and big issue. Punjab is a state where it has affected the local populace in the Malwa region of Bathinda district. The Central govt. has set up a committee to look into this matter. This region is cancer prone, and suspicion is that some chemical factories in this region dispose of poisonous chemicals in the irrigation canals.

  • It is horrible story. Even

    It is horrible story. Even after this officials at the directorate says 'unless its harmful effect is proven, its use should not be restricted.'

    It should be other way round -'unless its harmless effect is proven its use use should not be allowed.'
