Hard on health

The soft response of the Government to the startling revelation by the CSE about the presence of pesticide residue in soft-drinks, far in excess of EU norms, is a sad commentary on the lamentable lack of health consciousness in our nation.

The craze for soft-drinks, especially among youth is largely due to the aggressive advertisement and marketing strategies of the manufacturers. Soft-drinks are not soft on health.
