CSE asks Sania Mirza to disassociate from 'misleading' poultry ad 21.5.2018 General News
Research and advocacy organisation CSE today urged tennis ace Sania Mirza to publicly disassociate from a poultry advertisement, saying it has been declared misleading by the Advertisement Standards Council of India (ASCI). The Centre for Science and Environment welcomes the recent decision of ASCI to declare the advertisement featuring Mirza "misleading" by facts, exaggeration and ambiguity, CSE said in a statement. CSE previously had also urged Mirza to dissociate herself from the advertisement.

Restaurants most common source of food-borne illness: Survey 21.5.2018 General News
Restaurants are the most common source of contaminated food that causes children to fall sick, say scientists who found that very few parents use simple preventive strategies to protect kids from food poisoning outside the home. One in 10 parents said in a survey that their child got sick from eating spoilt food, according researchers from the University of Michigan in the US. Among parents of children who had gotten sick from spoiled or contaminated food, just a third said that their child had gotten sick from food eaten at their own home. "In most cases children recover quickly from food poisoning, but in certain cases it can be debilitating," said Gary L Freed, co-director of C S Mott Children's Hospital National Poll. "It's impossible to completely protect children from food-borne illness. However, there are strategies to try to reduce the risk of getting sick from eating spoiled or contaminated food," said Freed. "We found that while parents paid closer attention to food safety ..

He had moved the top court challenging the April 26 high court order. The apex court said the high court has "cogitated" over all issues in detail and the probe was transferred to the CBI to ensure fair investigation in the case. The case relates to an Income Tax Department raid in the offices, residences and godowns of a gutkha (a tobacco product) manufacturer in Tamil Nadu in 2016.
