Always remember taste is inversely proportional to health i.e more the thing is tasty, less will be beneficial for health. Tasty things are always injurious to our health.
e.g Cold drinks are tasty , that’s why they are very injurious to our health .
Meat is tasty, that’s why it is very injurious to our health.
Fast foods are tasty, that’s why they are very injurious to our health.
There are so many examples for this, but here I discuss only poisonous nature of cold drinks. Other will be discussing lately.
Just 20 years back, when guests comes to our home, then we serve lassi (Sweet or salty). Which was counted to be healthier drink in those days? In local language of Punjab, they named it Desi Bear.
It also proves its name, because when we drink it, we feel sleepiness.
Now a day a new trend comes in our society. Now people serve directly cold drinks to their guests. To serve cold Drinks to their guests becomes status symbol, which is very dangerous trend. Guests are so greedy that, they drink it without knowing its side effects.
