Celebrity Endorsed Foods Are Bad For Your Health! Find Out More!
Switch on the TV and all you can see are ads of celebrity endorsing foods and drinks. Almost all of them are unhealthy! It is shameful that these days, celebs don’t have a sense of responsibility and just go ahead promoting or endorsing products for a fat pay package. The problem is that most stars are popular among kids and teenagers. Once the youth see their stars saying that this product is good, they simply end up buying that product!
Soft drinks are something that almost every star has promoted! We have seen Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Sidhharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhat, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and many more endorsing soft drinks. It has been said umpteen times by dieticians, nutritionists and health experts that it is not healthy habit to drink soft drink as they are empty calories with no nutrition to offer. Sugar loaded soft drinks are by no means a good option to ‘refresh’ oneself as claimed by the celebs! You would have seen many mango drink ads, I am not naming the brand but can anything replace the magic of a real mango? How do these people get the supply of mangoes all year round when the season of mangoes lasts just for a few months? Don’t you think that they hoard mango pulp and keep it for the whole year? Think? Is it going to have the goodness of real mangoes in it? Absolutely not!
Then there is the endorsement of so called ‘healthy’ packaged fruit juice. There are even the 100% juice variants but let me tell you that they are just as bad as soft drinks. They too are loaded with sugar. We see fitness freaks like Bipasha Basu endorsing such brands. People feel that she really drinks those packaged juices to stay fit and fab! That is not true!
Let’s talk about something free of sugar now! Well, well, Parineeti Chopra is happily endorsing something that is really not good for health. It will temporarily give you happiness as you will get a great taste without the need of adding sugar. Artificial sweeteners are by no means healthy as they have a plenty of negative effects on health. You can read about them here!
Now, lo and behold as I am going to tell you about the Priyanka Chopra’s product, well, she is doing indirect promotion of pan masala! You all would have seen the ad on TV. What kind of a message is she passing on to the minds of youngsters? I was shocked to see the ad! It won’t be uncommon to see teenagers gobble up pan masala thinking that they would also become as famous as PC.
Madhuri Dixit had also endorsed Maggi oats before the Nestle brand went into trouble and was banned. It was such a misleading ad.
Well, there are so many other stars endorsing liquor (indirectly), pan masala and other unhealthy stuff. Do mention in comments as I know I would have missed out on many of the big names.
It is high time that we open our eyes and take the responsibility of our own health. Listen to doctors and nutritionists and not to celebrities.
