Delivering a keynote address at Romancing Print 2014, a Printers’ Conference organized by All India Federation of Master Printers at Hotel Ashoka, Padma Shri & Dr. B C Roy National Awardee, Dr. K K Aggarwal
Every color represents a vitamin. As per Ayurveda, a balanced diet is one which includes all seven colors and six tastes.
Dr. Aggarwal said that anything which is green and bitter in taste reduces weight, sugar and is good for the heart.
He said that one should be cautious about artificial colors because if they are not permissible, they can be dangerous to the health. Artificial colors are often put into sweets and vegetables so that they look attractive.
If fruits or vegetables appear uniform in color or size at the time of purchase, it should be taken for granted that they are either artificially colored or artificially ripened. Fruits and vegetables that ripen naturally will have varying shades of their color.
White sugar in sweets can lead to uncontrolled diabetes and weight gain in individuals;
