TAILIEUCHUNG - A comparative study of bacterial contamination in kitchens of Meerut region of Uttar Pradesh, India

Microbial populations in indoor environments, where we spent our maximum time are indeed essential for public health. Several microbial species found in the kitchens of rural and urban area, can be a prominent source of air borne diseases. During present study, we have selected several samples from kitchens of district Meerut (UP-India). The results suggested that kitchens have a higher level of bacterial growth represented by total 117 positive samples for bacterial contamination out of 200 samples from different sites. Our results are agreed with Shruti et al., (2011) and we have also found the contamination more pronounced in rural region than in urban. | A comparative study of bacterial contamination in kitchens of Meerut region of Uttar Pradesh, India
