When asked about this, Dr Praveen said, “White spots on the meat are a sign of bacilli (bacteria). Occasionally, small cysts with worms can be found in beef or pork. These are infections caused by worms or bacteria. This can be eliminated by cooking properly. 

Furthermore, cancer cells are not spread by eating cancer cells. Cancer is caused by one’s own genetic mutation. Eating cancer does not cause cancer. ”

In other countries, the white spots on the meat are referred to as tuberculosis. According to the World Health Organization and several international health groups, “Mycobacterium and M. Bovis are two types of bacteria that cause tuberculosis in humans.

Of these, M. Bovis is spread when eating contaminated milk and other dairy products. Also, it spreads to humans when they eat meat that is not cooked properly.
