<p><strong>New Delhi, January 15</strong> Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday said that if the use of chemical fertilizers continued to increase, the incidence of cancer would increase by 50 per cent in the next 10-15 years.

The country's soil is becoming barren due to the use of chemical fertilizers.  Groundwater is also becoming toxic due to excessive use of chemicals.  Our food grains are already poisoned but if water becomes poisonous in the next 10-15 years then according to scientists the number of people suffering from cancer will increase by 50%.  We have to understand this danger.  During this he addressed more than 1000 farmers in his area through virtual medium. He asked the officials to set a target of ensuring at least 15 farmers in each village of Gandhinagar constituency to engage in subsistence farming by the end of 2022.</p> <p><strong>Also read: <a href="https://hindi.oneindia.com/news/delhi/more-than-twenty-tousand-case-of-coronavirus-658447.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">New Delhi: In the last 24 hours, more than 20,000 cases of corona have been reported, leaving 30 dead</a></strong></p> <p><strong>2.5 lakh farmers in Gujarat have returned to subsistence farming</strong><br/>He said that the present situation was due to the lack of periodic review of agricultural practices from the time of Green Revolution till date.  The Home Minister said that only by using cow dung and cow urine can the soil composting capacity be increased.  Shah said that more than 2.5 lakh farmers of Gujarat have given up the use of chemical fertilizers in their fields in last two years and now they are doing natural farming.</p>   <p><strong>Authorities should encourage farmers to engage in subsistence farming</strong><br/>He said that the water level in the state had reached below 1000-1200 feet and the use of water by natural means of agriculture could be reduced by up to 50 percent.  As a Member of Parliament, I have decided that by 2025, at least 50 percent of the farmers in my constituency will be encouraged to engage in subsistence farming.</p>        <div
