School Lunch and Water Poisoning in India… are the Root Causes Similar?
With community protests after losing school aged loved ones, the Indian Government is closing in on suspected causes to include suspects. But is this a sign of Systemic Food Quality Control or as TapRooT® calls them “Generic Causes”? Will the nature of the investigations detour looking for Generic Causes by looking for blame instead?

In a months time…..
23 students in the southwestern coastal state of Goa were treated at a hospital after they got sick at lunch
23 students died and 25 people were hospitalized from food poisoning after a school lunch in northern India’s Bihar state
Schoolchildren falling sick after drinking contaminated water from hand pumps continued for the third consecutive day on Saturday with at least 35 more students taken ill in different parts of Bihar.
Arrests made in two of incidents with possible cause being insecticide poisoning; the water pump incident possibly criminal intent and the Bahir lunch room incident due to possible negligence. The Goa incident not so clear in details yet.
Due to fear, large lunch producers temporarily shut down their lunch kitchens resulting in children not getting their mandated free lunches during school.
