The Health and Indigenous Medicine Ministry will soon introduce a special red label on bottled drinks which have an excessive sugar content.

Dietary sugars have been suggested as a cause of obesity, several chronic diseases, and a range of cardiometabolic risk factors, but there is no convincing evidence of a causal relation between sugars and risk factors other than body weight. The researchers conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials that examined effects of the modification of dietary free sugars on blood pressure and lipids.

We are in the midst of a paradigm shift in research on the health effects of sugar, one fueled by extremely high rates of added sugar overconsumption in the American public. By “added sugar overconsumption,” we refer to a total daily consumption of sugars added to products during manufacturing (ie, not naturally occurring sugars, as in fresh fruit) in excess of dietary limits recommended by expert panels. Past concerns revolved around obesity and dental caries as the main health hazards.

Principal Secretary (Additional Energy Source) Sudhir Kumar said on Sunday that UP topped the country in energy generation by sugar mills.

Addressing the valedictory function of Science Expo, held at the Regional Science Centre, as the chief guest, Kumar said solar and wind energy were going to be extremely important as prices of solar panels were expected to come down.

The objective of this study is to find out the optimum OLR at which the UASB reactor can be operated in treating domestic sewage and sugar mill effluent, in conjunction at a predetermined optimum mixing ratio of 75:25.

The physico-chemical profile of effluent from sugar mill was determined during 2003-04. The parameters measured are temperature, colour, turbidity, pH, electrical conductivity, BOD, COD, total dissolved solids, chloride, total alkalinity, total hardness, sulphate, phosphate, total acidity, calcium and magnesium.
