Can PUB / Ministry of Health / HSA confirm whether it is safe to use straight tap water when steaming food?
As usual, forwards via Whatsapp / email / FB are not to be taken at face value because many are fabrications by weirdos. But it would help if Authorities give their official stance on the recommended way to steam foods, because it could affect health if true, or if it is false and we all follow the false advice, it would needlessly waste energy and water.
Of course tap water is different in different cities, but the PRC-looking article below is being forwarded in Sg now.
What about cooking methods besides cooking? Is PUB tapwater safe?
Kind of make sense to me !
Forward the good deeds:
Xuanwu Hospital Professor Qi articles:
Steaming food be sure the lid is open to boil the water first, then add to the steaming food, close the lid!
No wonder more and more people with cancer. With pot cooking something, be sure to use water, or filtered water. Because if the direct use of tap water, tap water has chlorine, then after heating, because the lid is covered, the chlorine is all covered in food, so be sure to use boiled water or filtered out chlorine water to steam things. Because chlorine is carcinogenic hazard. This is really important! Even if only steamed buns, should have this knowledge.
When steaming your food, make sure you open the lid to boil the water first.
If water is used straight from the tap, your food will be contaminated by absorbing all the cancer causing chlorine upon heating which is a serious health hazard.
Keep forwarding, so that more people see it.
Please forward to create awareness:
