Mamata against controlled dietSeptember 4th, 2012 - 7:33 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, Sep 4 (IANS) West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Tuesday advised the youth to avoid going on a controlled diet as it lowers the immunity system and leads to ailments like dengue.
“I appeal to all of you, my young friends, not to go on diet, especially during the current season. Because, when you go on diet, your immunity system goes down, and you may be struck by diseases like dengue,” she said, at the state secretariat Writers’ Buildings.
“Keep on hold your crash diet plans. Eat plenty of food, take plenty of water,” she said, while briefing newspersons about the dengue outbreak in the state.
The number of confirmed dengue cases in West Bengal has shot up to at least 643, with 80 percent of the patients residing in Kolkata and its adjoining North 24 Parganas district. The disease has claimed at least three lives so far.
