Indian Government unveils cow dung “chip” that reduces radiation in mobile handsets

The Indian government unveiled a “chip” made of cow dung and claimed that it reduces radiation from mobile handsets and it will be a safeguard against diseases.

The Government of India constituted “Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog” to organize animal husbandry on modern and scientific lines. Its Chairman Vallabhbhai Kathiria while launching a nationwide campaign “Kamdhenu Deepawali Abhiyan”  aimed at promoting cow dung products said:

“See, this is a radiation chip. You can keep it in your mobile. We have seen that if you keep this chip in your mobile, it reduces radiation significantly. If you want to avoid disease, then this is going to be used.”

The “chip”, named Gausatva Kavach, is manufactured by Rajkot-based Shrijee Gaushala. Set up in 2019, the RKA aimed at the conservation, protection, and development of cows and their progeny.

Displaying other products made from cow dung, he said, “Cow dung is anti-radiation, it protects all, if you bring this home your place will become radiation-free… All this has been approved by science.”

More than 500 gaushalas are manufacturing such anti-radiation chips. They are available for Rs 50-100 each. One person is exporting such chips to the US, where it is sold at about $10 each,” Kathiria  added.

While launching Kamdhenu Deepawali Abhiyan, Kathiria unveiled other cow dung-based products like earthen lamps, candles, incense, paperweights, idols of gods and goddesses. He said RKA aims to reach 11 crore families to light 33 crore diyas made of cow dung this Diwali.
