There are so many different products (Both eatables and drinks) we consume on daily basis. In breakfast we have juice, cereal, Jams, Breads, eggs, parathas, Milk, Tea etc. In lunch most of us either have the traditional Desi food, Roti and Salaan or we eat burgers, pizzas, and other fast food items. When it comes to soft drink Pepsi, Coca Cola, Diet drinks, Fanta, 7up, Sprite, Fruit juices and the list goes on and on. Particularly, Pepsi and Coke are the most used items and are being consumed on daily basis. In some homes these two drinks are the part of your dining table.
The question is do we really know what is in these things, and are they really beneficial to be consumed. The answer is NO. We usually do not pay attention to the ingredients listed on the packet or the bottle of the item. We before buying we must keep in mind that the ingredients listed on the packet or bottle are there for some reasons. It is our responsibility to read them and make sure what they really are.
There are so many ingredients that are harmful to human brain and body especially for children and elder people. Companies do claim that certain item has been approved by FDA or other authorities but the reality is something we do not know.
Aspartame, Caffeine, Fat, GM, Fluoride, Alcohol and millions of other ingredients are being consumed by us on daily basis. These ingredients are not only harmful to our body, but also harmful to brain cells and causes cancer. Have you ever thought that in early days there was no such disease called cancer, diabetes, kidney stones, cardiac arrests, blood pressure, children were healthier, bones were strong and people used to long lives. These days another common problem is we have weaker bones and teeth, Calcium deficiencies, strokes, heart problems, cancer etc.
Genetically modified eggs, cooking oils, fruits, milk, chicken and lamb meat and almost everything is GM. We cannot see seeds in fruits now days because they are genetically modified. When we say it is GM this means those products/fruits etc are not grown or produced naturally and are injected with growth hormones which causes harmful diseases such as cancer.
Aspartame is another agent present in soft drink such as Chewing Gums, Coke, Diet drinks, Fanta, Fruit juices, artificial sweeteners etc. Aspartame is basically the faeces of genetically engineered bacteria. This ingredient the artificial sweetener we use these days. It is better to use sugar instead of using “Aspartame”
Fluoride which is added in toothpastes is harmful for human brain.
Fat is another harmful agent present in the items we consume. This fat is often not Halal. Pig fat is often added in all cosmetic products (lipsticks, eye shadows, facial crèmes, blushes etc) especially the imported ones.
A recent study has proved that there is alcohol in a very popular soft drink consumed by every other person on this planet.
Chickens are injected growth hormones, Milk is not organic, Mean is not organic, eggs are caned and are not natural. Even cooking oils are not organic.
It is our responsibility to make sure what we are consuming, have a look on the list of ingredients, and Google it of you are not sure. Tell others as well. Awareness is important.
