Cola a health hazard during Sabarimala climb: Experts

Experts have warned of health risks posed by introduction of Coca Cola in Sabarimala through fifty vending machines in the stretch from Nilackal to Sannidhanam. The ingredient caffeine can cause both increased blood pressure and heartbeat, which in turn can lead to cardiac complications of Ayyappa devotees climbing the incline, according to Dr. B Padmakumar, Medical officer of Parippalli Medical College. Moreover, nearly 7-tea spoonsful of sugar in a glass of cola is harmful to diabetic patients. Being a carbonated drink, it can also cause stomach problems. In short not much scientific thought has gone into the Devaswom board decision to allow it in the pilgrimage spot.
