Principal Secretary Health, Hussan Lal and Commissioner, Food and Drug Administration, Mr. Kumar Rahul, here today launched a “Trans-fat free Diwali campaign” ahead of the festival season. Conceptualized and initiated by the Department of Community Medicine and School of Public Health, PGIMER, Chandigarh; the campaign aims to create awareness among the policy makers, producers, suppliers, and general public about the negative health impact of trans-fats. The large-scale awareness campaign is being supported by Strategic Institute for Public Health and Education Research (SIPHER) and Global Health Advocacy Incubator (GHAI).

Supporting the Trans fat free Diwali Campaign, Mr. Kumar Rahul urged all to have a healthy and safer Diwali by shunning trans-fats rich food. He added that Diwali being the key festival of India, it not only brings cheer and excitement among the people but also enhances the intake of trans-fats in the form of sweets, frozen desserts and fried food and thus increases risk of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases.
