During festivals, when the demand for milk increases, adulteration takes place on an even greater scale. During this, consuming milk and other milk products and sweets is not free from danger. Despite this, they are produced on a lying scale and people buy sweets in bulk. Even in normal days, those who take milk from dairy or other door-to-door sellers of milk, it is also adulterated. Milk is definitely given to young children and old family members so that they can get proper nutrition. But they are harmed due to adulterated milk.
