ISLAMABAD - Sale of hazardous cold drinks prepared in poor hygienic conditions is one of the major causes for seasonal diseases among children in twin cities.
A large number of sellers of unhygienic and spurious beverages have appeared on roads of the twin cities, posing serious health hazards to the public.
The roadside vendors have appeared in large numbers to sell substandard drinks, especially outside schools and in various commercial localities during recent weeks. The drinks include different kinds of juices, including apricot juice, tamarind juice and lemonade.
Many vendors are also selling juices of stale oranges at low prices, especially near the railway station and bus and wagon stands.
People have demanded authourities concerned to keep a check on such stalls as they are playing with lives of masses in this regard.
