Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog (RKA), a body which comes under the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry & Dairying, chairman Vallabhbhai Kathiria on Monday unveiled a chip made of cow dung and claimed that the cow dung is anti-radiation. Speaking at the launch of nationwide campaign on Kamdhenu Deepawali Abhiyan, aimed at promoting cow dung products, Kathiria claimed that the chip could be kept in the mobile and this would reduce radiation and avoid disease.
We want to have research on these subjects which we consider a myth, Kathiria said. He displayed other products made from cow dung. He said that cow dung was anti-radiation, it could protect all, if you bring this home your place will become radiation-free and all this has been approved by science.
Kathiria also unveiled other cow dung-based products like earthen lamps, incense, candles, paperweights, idols of gods and goddesses. He said RKA aims to reach 11 crore families to light 33 crore diyas made of cow dung this Diwali.
