    Stop eating junk food It tastes very good for tongue But the consequences are worst. Have your food cooked at home. Roadside food is very dangerous. Choice is yours.

    One more in the string of cardiac arrests and many aren't aware of the cause still. Hope people will stop them and we will be back to our past normal soon.
