    Covid 1 :: Food packets are becoming a major health threat during the Corona period, health experts warn

    New Delhi. Packaged foods in the time of coronavirus pose many health risks. Top health experts and agencies across the country have warned about the health effects of dangerous amounts of fats, salts and sugars. They demanded that a clear warning be issued on such packaged food items as soon as possible.

    In many countries, the introduction of front-of-packet labels, such as tobacco products, has seen an immediate change in people’s eating habits. Experts say that if the country is to be protected from the great danger of disease, it is very important to start health warnings on such products immediately.

    To make these products more palatable and addictive, they are high in fat, salt and sugar, which significantly increase the risk of cancer, heart disease and liver disease.
