World Health Day is observed every year on 7 April and this year's theme is safe food. Many of us are unaware of the hidden dangers in the food that we eat in our daily life.

Unlike previous generations, people, especially the youth these days have a sedantary lifestyle because of long hours spent in offices, leaving little scope for physical activities. 

The consumption of vegetables and fruits does not help, as they are injected with dangerous pesticides and hormones making our body vulnerable to diseases.

In this context, the World Health organisation has released a video on making people aware about food safety.

Check out the video below:

On this day, many politicians, celebs and socialites have offered tips on how to maintain a healthy life.

Check out some of the healthy tips and messages from politicians and celebs below:
