First of all, you need data to prove that cancer cases have been rising when given a normalized population. That is, if you have 10 cancer cases against a 100 population, and then you get 20 cases against a 200 population, then technically this is not a rise. You are just seeing more cases because the population has risen. Then you ask yourself is there really a rise or are the cases being broadcasted better in the media. Kenyans typically sharply react to what’s on the media. All of a sudden, anything is a carcinogen. Goat meat, weed killer, water, diet watching etc. The real information about rising cancer will come from a government agency, and not the media.

Do not under estimate the effect of these chemicals. Most vegetables are grown with huge doses of chemicals. I stay in shags and I cannot eat cabbages grown around here. Mboga inapigwa dawa Leo na kesho it's in the market. Dairies give milk collectors a dose of hydrogen peroxide to add to milk to keep it fresh as a rule! This country is fucked up I tell you.

Some of my neighbours do take milk to the dairies every evening. It's collected from their gates by nduthi guys and pickups. Once the milk is collected together inapigwa dose ya hydrogen peroxide, it can last a long time after that dose. As for cabbages, I feel sorry when I see Kenyans eating raw cabbage as "salad" . I have learnt to disregard those tomatoes that have no blemishes at all and go for those that have worm marks on them!

Very alarming indeed. It's those foreign chemical sprays in some Vegetables that we don't know about.

Farmers may not be aware that some of the chemicals they use in these foods are hazardous to our health. The specific government entities should be vigilant in checking all our local produce to ensure that farmers adhere to certain standards in producing food that will not harm the consumers.

I have seen people spray half-dead, ill- formed cabbages like today and the next day the cabbages are all bursting with "good health" and ready for the market.

There are some pesticides which have been banned in Kenya but the farmers here are able to have them smuggled from Tanzania. Moreover, the government is aware these chemicals are being used in TZ but it allows their onions and tomatoes grown using these chemicals to be sold in Kenya.

We are therefore doomed, if no one is checking and stopping these farmers.
