Dangerous?


Cooking moi-moi, a popular Nigerian delicacy made from beans, in nylons or cellophane bags is dangerous.


A dietician, John Tehinse, gave the warning at an awareness campaign on food safety organised by the Food Safety Awareness Campaign Initiatives, funded by the European Union.

Mr. Tehinse said nylons or cellophane bags produced dioxins when heated, adding that dioxins were highly toxic and can cause reproductive and developmental problems, damage the immune system, interfere with hormones and also cause cancer.
