Ice golas! Tempting but unhealthy


The summer season sees an increased demand for ice golas, which are made from crushed ice and flavoured with edible colours. Water used to make ice could be contaminated, resulting in jaundice, hepatitis A, fever, flu, and a variety of other illnesses. The colours may also prove harmful and cause gastrointestinal illnesses. It is best to stay away from streetside ice golas!
