Social Media Poster: Sustainable Transport - Myth about EVs

Using #ElectricVehicles doesn't mean #ZeroEmissions. The #Electricity that we use to power these cars is not 100% from #RenewableEnergy sources. #TamilNadu still relies heavily on #Coal energy & this is ultimately what powers our electric vehicles.

Social Media Poster: FoPL - Importance of Warning labels

Dr. R. Vadivelu, Cardiologist, Velammal Medical College Hospital, Madurai says, “Salt and sugar are the two white poisons; especially for those with heart disease or at risk of heart disease. Indians adore salt in their dishes. It is a well known fact  that high salt intake causes high blood pressure which then causes increased risk of stroke, heart attack, kidney failure and eye problems. In patients with high blood pressure, a lower salt intake will help control the condition with fewer medications. Similarly, in patients with heart failure, reduced salt intake will reduce the chances of repeated hospitalization.”

Social Media Poster: Sustainable Transport - Increasing road space

Tue, 30/08/2022 - 11:14
Author

Many think that adding extra #Road lanes & #Flyovers solve #Traffic congestion. Far from it. Creating more road space acts like a magnet, attracting & generating traffic, known as induced traffic. Cities like #Paris & #NewYork have already started to narrow roads & remove some lanes as a means of tackling congestion. When will we learn?

#India currently does not require #Cyclists to wear #helmets & so there are no helmet standards either. Considering cyclists are Vulnerable Road Users, with more than 4000 cyclists dying each year, this must change! Support this call for action by giving us a thumbs up.
