Sugary drinks are one of the biggest food and health safety threats to the public.
This is true of both artificially flavoured drinks, the so-called “healthy” fruit juices, and also for sweetened milk based drinks.
These drinks are contributing to a galloping epidemic of lifestyle disease. Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension, Fatty Liver disease, cancers and more.
The awareness of this problem is, thankfully, increasing, as we can see from this news item about Coca Cola Company introducing products like lassi, jaljeera etc.
I just hope the lassi is salted and not sweetened. If it is, it would also fall into the same ‘problematic drink’ category.
