For 20 years, Brij Lal Meena has been trying to produce better and healthy food using fruit farming methodologies. He has noticed non-scientific and toxic chemical methodologies for farming and agriculture that cause various human health issues. Additionally, he has seen a rapid growth of cancer in rural areas “especially in North India.” Therefore, he decided to work for healthy food production without using carcinogenic chemicals. Recently, Brij Lal Meena started working with Dr. Rajendra Prasad, who is a Nanomedicine Investigator at Prof. Rohit Srivastava’s NanoBios Lab, Department of Biosciences and Bioengineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai Powai, India. Brij Lal Meena is an agroengineer farmer who belongs to a remote village named Jirota, Karauli in Rajasthan. He has noticed various cancer cases in rural areas suffering from the high cost of treatment and lack of knowledge for early-stage diagnosis and treatment causing immense pressures on cancer patients that made him work for toxic chemical-free fruit farming “food production” as an Agroengineer.
