Gutkha found in soft drinks bottle

As the researchers has been writing continuously that soft drinks are injurious to health and its bad effects, at Bhella area in Barpeta district found a packet of gutkha (Sikhar 1000) in a bottle of cold drink (Thumps Up) at a shop yesterday. It created really a havoc among the people of Bhella as well as Barpeta district. These branded multinational companies persuaded the consumers with the help advertising by the popular filmstars and continuing their business and making their market safe one, rather giving attention to the health of the people. They are always interested in their own profit. Perhaps these companies also did not obey the rules and regulations in bottling. As the production methods are not so safe, these cold drinks has been turning the people towards death, specially the youths are addicted to this cold drinks.
