According to a new investigation under India’s one of the trustworthy board of health ministry DTAB it is found that our favorite cold drinks, which enhances our mood and taste buds especially with some spicy fast food junk, contain some harmful poisoning elements.
Soft drinks are usually liked by all age groups and are probably the most used drinks in day to day routine, but hardly any of you know the harmful effects that these soft drinks possess. As per the recently conducted tests, these soft drinks contain a large amount of Antimony, Lead, Chromium, Cadmium and Compound DEHP and all these ingredients are very harmful for health.
According to Drug and Technical Advisory Board (DTAB) an advisory board under Health Ministry, tests were conducted on soft drinks in which they found that the soft drinks were poisoning. Pepsi, Cola-Cola, Mountain Dew, Sprite and 7 up are the drinks taken under this testing.
Companies which were taken under this testing are PepsiCo and Coca-Cola. The soft drinks manufactured under these companies were found containing elements like Antimony, Lead, Chromium, Cadmium and Compound DEHP which are extremely poisoning.
We would like to inform you, Mountain Dew and 7 UP is a PepsiCo product, on the other side Sprite is a Coca-Cola product.
DTAB collected the samples of these cold drinks in February and March, this year and then the samples were sent to the ‘All Indian Institute of Hygiene and Health’ Kolkata.
According to the sources, the test result samples are hands over to the chairman of the DTAB Jagdish Prasad. Before also AIIPH had found harmful metals in many healthy supplements, came under testing.
Statements given by the soft drinks Companies:
Under this issue, the PepsiCo spokesperson said, “Yet we have received no reports of Tests drinks. Unless the reports, is not found, we are not in a position to say anything. We make all the products that are within the rules of the Food Safety and Standards. As a part of this we will use the heavy metals.”
However, Coca-Cola refused to say anything regarding this issue.
And now when another popular consuming product has come under doubt after Maggie (Nestle), which is also a heavy consuming product in India. We have to wait to see what all actions would be taken by the government after the disclosure of the actual truth.
