Sugar in sweets & Salt in Namkeens

The government should fix, announce and check content of sugar in sweets sold all over India. There should be on spot-checking and penalties for the excess sugar content. Greedy sweet makers (Halvayies) sell sugar at the rate of other sweet contents.
Similarly, one finds more than the required quantity of salt in snacks (Namkeens) to increase their weight. Both sugar and salt in excess are harmful for the health. more

Folks, we have a wonderful word called "bindaas" in our vernacular vocabulary. There's no need to take the load of the entire humanity on our head. Excessive sugars and salts have been part of our foods since times immemorial, and this will continue to be so. How about you decide what is good for you and what is not good for you. Leave the rest to the Almighty or to others. No need even to try to change the world or the people !! more  
Does 'bindaas' mean 'Chalta hai' or 'take it lightly' more  
Sorry, I don't agree. The Government and the medical fraternity (Indian Medical council) can definitely fix the proportion of sugar in sweets and salt in snacks on grounds of public health using the terminology 'not to exceed' more  
What about pepsi other beverages who use corn syrup than healthy sugarcane in pepsi more  
Thanks. Pandemic too has contributed to obesity apart from Indian foods like Samosas, Kachoris, Paranthas, Poodies and Indian sweets, apart from desi ghee, hydrogenated ghees, excess sugar and salt contents Strict Health Laws. enacted by the government will definitely contribute to the cause of health problems and serious diseases in India. more
