    Yeh dil mange more... but no colas behind the school canteen door...
    thinks Dude Hyderabadi...,

    Anbumani Ramadoss ( Ramadoss vs Venugopal fame ), our union health minister has brought frowns on many faces, young faces that is. The same Ramadoss who had given the cola companies a clean chit when faced with accusations of the drinks containing pesticides has gone from cola friendly to health friendly. He's planning to ban colas from all school canteens ! Oh my god... wat ! Lucky me, i passed out with all the cola I could have. He's not only targetted colas but all 'junk food'.

    "Junk food and colas are not good for childrens health, hence the sale of these products should be banned....." says our respected minister. Cool.. but didnt we know this all the while ? Y act suddenly ? N after allowing people's favs McDonalds n KFC into India ? Anyways inspite of many possible legal problems, he's planning to put his plan into action. Hope they are MEGA legal problems.

    Now, does the ban gaurantee that today's children will grow into a healthier youth tomorrow ? Considering other problems like pollution, unhealthy lifestyles, chances of addiction to alcohol and drugs in the later years and also the availability of 'junk food' everywhere else, the answer is a big NO. HELL NO !

    Just like you can't squeeze toothpaste back into the tube, you just can't force good habits on to others. Virtually impossible, try it if you don't believe me ! I'm not totally against his intentions but a severe ban is not the solution. What you can do is make them aware of what they're doing to themselves and the ill effects of eating a lot of junk food. They should be made to understand that too much is too bad and anything taken in moderation is really not that bad n actually fun.

    Children should also be taught the benifits of a healthy lifestyle. Not just kids, everybody should know that sitting on the couch on their fattening behinds all day in front of the tv is doing them no good. Exercise GOOD.., obesity and diabetes BAD. You can't have any of these chips or sweets or colas later in life and will have to live at the mercy of insulin injections. Ouch !

    Think about it, gorging too much on junk food means no more of that stuff in the future. A little of it now and then along with an active and healty lifestyle ensures that you can enjoy your fav drinks and chips for a long long time to go.

    So People..... Live n eat healthy, Live longer.
    Ramadoss sir..... educate than enforce.
