Kochi,June28,() The reason for sex ratio to tilt in favour of women in Kerala is due to the fact that the menfolk of the state fell to heart attack, asthma and cancer. Suicide, liver disease, kidney trouble and road accidents predictably claimed more men than women.
Meanwhile an aphrodisiac ‘Musli Power Xtra’ was directed by the High Court to not display any advertisements in electronic print as well hoardings of its products.
Among the medically certified deaths, most men were found to commit suicide at the prime of their life in the age group 35-44 and 45-54. The report has been prepared by the Vital Statistics Division of the Economics and Statistics Department by a team under the guidance of the Additional Chief Registrar of Births and Deaths, D Rajan.
The Kerala High Court has banned all types of advertisements of the aphrodisiac ‘Musli Power Xtra’.
A Division Bench comprising Justice A K Basheer and Justice P Q Barkath Ali on Monday passed the order on a petition filed by Peoples Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) seeking a ban on the advertisement of Musli Power Xtra. “The advertisements should not be published in electronic media either. All hoarding and billboards should be removed within three weeks,” the court directed.
The petitioners PUCL submitted that the advertising of ‘Musli Power Xtra’, being manufactured by Kunnath Pharmaceuticals, clearly violates Section 3(b) of Drugs and Magic Remedies Act.
The official website of the banned product states it is Government approved and is patented. It claims as INDIAN HERBAL ENERGY BOOSTER FOR MEN AND WOMEN
