'Cheap calories' from processed foods is one of the drivers of an Indian #diabetes epidemic among children in #India with a 2021 study finding that 12.3% of Indian children (10-19 years)  were found to be either diabetic or pre-diabetic. The disease cuts across socio-economic boundaries with the easy availability of junk foods. Teaching children to stay away from unhealthy foods is not possible without #warninglabels. #WorldDiabetesDay #FoodLabelSavesLives

A recent survey by CAG indicated that while nearly all respondents understood the #health impact of consuming processed foods, nearly 66% of people admitted to consuming these foods. It's no wonder then, that these poor food choices are causing as many as 1,573,595 deaths in the country. It is high time that #consumers are warned about the presence of high salt, sugar & fat in #processedfoods. It will give them the power to choose wisely. #WorldFoodDay #EatWell #GlobalGoals

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.”
