Wow Fresh. Thanks for sharing.
It makes me want to skip buying non organic watermelon from now on.

Taken from the video caption:
"The cracks in a watermelon are a bad sign.

Sometimes we open the watermelon and we notice some huge cracks inside it, however we do not give much importance to it and start consuming it.

You should stop doing this because you are causing serious damage to your body.
The reason is, the surface of the watermelon which is cracked, is by a substance that is used for its growth.

This chemical is known as Forchlorfenuron. With this the fruits are pulverized, and it is also used to accelerate the growth of the fruit.

Well.
Is It Safe?

According to an EPA pesticide fact sheet, forchlorfenuron can be harmful to your health. It reports:

Moderate toxicity to freshwater fish.
Slightly higher toxicity levels in birds.
Increased pup mortality and decreased litter sizes in rat studies.

The biggest problem with this chemical is that when it enters the body it can cause cancer and neurological problems. Which are very difficult to heal.

Yes forchlorfenuron can be harmful and toxic. You never know how much toxicity such a watermelon can contain. If you do some research you will find such fruits produced with this method can also have other signs like, looking ripe but being tasteless. It is always better to be safe than sorry. Health always comes first"

Me too but I was wondering if they use other methods than that to increase growth and those methods are not dangerous. I have eaten melons that look like that and just don't know if they had used that chemical or something else... seems to be some unknowns here especially since they were talkin about China primarily
