Detection of Oxytocin in Fruits and Vegetables using Wireless Sensor


Background/Objectives: This study is focused on detecting the presence of Oxytocin, a Schedule H drug, used in fruits like pumpkin, watermelon, cucumber etc., illegally to make them appear bigger using a wireless sensor. Methods/ Statistical analysis: Oxytocin is nono-peptide hormone in mammals. It is used in medical field. Oxytocin is normally stored in the posterior pituitary gland, which plays a role in sexual reproduction of both sexes, and also during and after the child birth as well as social bonding. In India, Oxytocin is cheaper than fertilizer, so it is used to inject in fruits to appear them bigger. Findings: Unfortunately, there is no way to visually distinguish between a normal vegetable and that are boon pumped with Oxytocin. Using Wireless sensors, it would be easier for detecting the presence of Oxytocin in fruits and vegetables. This study introduces remote sensor for recognizing Oxytocin levels in Fruits and vegetables and this methodology can enhance comprehension of surviving examination, recommend novel systems through which Oxytocin may work, and refine forecasts about Oxytocin pharmacotherapy. Application/Improvements: Its application can be in the field of agriculture and in the field of production of milk.
