Lead and other heavy metals like Cadmium and Chromium have been found in the samples of five different soft drinks manufactured by two major multinational companies in India, Rajya Sabha was informed on Tuesday.

“Samples of five different cold drinks—Sprite, Mountain Dew, 7UP, Pepsi and Coca Cola were selected by the stratified sampling method and the samples were submitted to National Test House (in Kolkata) for testing,” minister of state for health Faggan Singh Kulaste said in a written reply.

Apart from lead, other heavy metals like Cadmium and Chromium were also found in the samples (due to leaching of toxins from the bottles in which they were packaged), he said replying to a question on whether the government commissioned study by the Drug Technical Advisory Board had found five different toxins in aerated drinks produced by two major multinational companies in India.

Giving details of the study conducted by Kolkata-based All India Institute of Hygine and Public Health (AIIH&PH), Kulaste said that the AIIH&PH had entered into a pact with the National Test House (NTH) for testing and estimation.

According to reports, in April last year, the Health Ministry is learnt to have directed the AIIH&PH to conduct a study on leaching of toxins from PET bottles, used for packaging pharmaceutical preparations, cold drinks, alcohol, juices and other beverages.

पांच सॉफ्ट ड्रिंक्स में मिले खतरनाक केमिकल, स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय का खुलासा!


मंगलवार को राज्यसभा की बहस के दौरान केंद्र सरकार द्वारा कुछ सॉफ्ट ड्रिंक्स में बेहद हानिकारक तत्व होने की बात सामने रखी गई। केंद्रीय स्वास्थ्य राज्य मंत्री फग्गन सिंह कुलस्ते ने सदन में इस बात का खुलासा किया। इसमें पांच प्रमुख सॉफ्ट ड्रिंक्स की जांच की गई थी।

सदन में अपने लिखित जवाब में राज्य मंत्री ने बताया कि ‘राष्ट्रीय जांच शाला’ में इन पेय पदार्थों की जांच के बाद ये बात सामने आई है। ‘स्प्राइट’, ‘माउंटेन ड्यू’, ‘पेप्सी’, ‘सेवन-अप’ और ‘कोका कोला’ के सैंपल को इस प्रयोग शाला में टेस्ट के लिए भेजा गया। रिपोर्ट आने के बाद सामने आया कि इन ड्रिंक्स में लेड, कैडमियम और क्रोमियम जैसे खतरनाक कैमिकल के अलावा कई और हानिकारक तत्व भी मिले हैं।

कुलस्ते ने जांच की जानकारी देते हुए ये भी बताया कि इस टेस्ट के लिए ‘ऑल इंडिया इंस्टिट्यूट ऑफ हाइजिन एंड पब्लिक हेल्थ’ और राष्ट्रीय जांच शाला ने साथ मिलकर काम किया था। जानकारी के मुताबिक स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय ने अप्रेल में ही इस जांच के आदेश दे दिए थे।

what is new in this news ? soft drinks were always hard to everyone .
but why op you do care , bcoz if after 10-15 years awareness , ppl did not understand and call it a modern symbol of living , then let them do .
if anyone will inform or aware them then only we were be ignored and called as illiterate , oversmart etc.
