Ban on e-ciggerates - Can regular ciggerates and chewable tobacco be next?
The Government via an ordinance this week has banned e-ciggerates. This is a good move and will help with young, however e-ciggerates were rarely used in India. The big causes of cancer in the country are regular ciggerates and chewable tobacoo i.e gutka.
Per your inputs, though there is a ban on chewable tobacco, it is ineffective and 86% citizens can still find chewable tobacco products in their city. Below is the link to the survey report. Do review it and share specific inputs that Modi Government 2.0 must take to enforce this ban. We can save a lot of lives which otherwise would yield to some form of cancer by acting in this area.

Pesticide Percentage (%) in cool drinks released from IMA recently.
1 Thums up 15.2%
2 Coke 13.4%
3 7 up 12.5%

If the Range exceeds 2.1%, then its very dangerous to the Human more
