Media Invitation: Press Conference

CSE -- based on laboratory tests in India and abroad -- presents its investigation into the mother of all food frauds. 

In these times of COVID-19 pandemic, safeguarding health is critical. We bring you shocking details about how something that you take every morning for your wellbeing and to boost your immunity in the fight against COVID, may not be good for you – in fact, it is very bad, and will make you more vulnerable and at risk for severe infections. 

CSE’s latest investigation is bigger than our expose on pesticides in colas; bigger than our study on antibiotics in honey; bigger and far more devastating for our health. 

It is about what and who we trust. It is also about the deceit and criminal intent of the adulteration business, promoted by companies from our neighbouring country and superpower. 

It is about health. People’s, and the planet’s.

December 2, 2020, 12.30 PM INDIA TIME 

Join us for an online and press conference to discuss the study, its findings and implications. 

CSE is also organising an on-site press conference at the same time and on the same date, at its office in India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi. Due to Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, this on-site PC will be open only to a very limited number of journalists. Those of you interested in attending this on-site PC, please register yourself in advance by sending an email to the undersigned. 

The onsite press conference will display the samples that have been tested in the study. CSE experts -- Sunita Narain, Amit Khurana and others -- will be available for interviews and comments after the press conference.
