Quack a Tip | 7-14 yrs | Reading Pod

We all love to have canned foods and beverages. These foods are tasty and can be prepared easily. Unfortunately, they are not always good for our health. All canned food stuffs usually contain small quantities of tin (a metallic contamination). It must be noted, that the maximum tin content in canned food stuff should not exceed 250p.p.m. But they often contain more than the prescribed limit. This has proven to be dangerous to our health. Two to three grams of tin content may cause severe vomiting, headache, photophobia, vertigo, dehydration, abdominal pain and retention of urine.Therefore; you must always beware of the amount of contaminations present in these foods and beverages.
