In 2019, diabetes was the fourth leading cause of death in Indonesia. The Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM) advises against frequent consumption of sweetened drinks, which has increased due to extreme hot weather. Child health experts from the Indonesian Pediatric Association (IDAI) highlight the high sugar content in packaged foods and drinks consumed by children, often available in school canteens. Professor Aman Pulungan supports the imposition of excise on sweet drinks to prevent addiction, especially in children.

Central Java Moves to Ban Dog Meat Amid Health Concerns

Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo is taking steps to ban the sale and consumption of dog meat in Solo, Indonesia, due to health concerns and the spread of rabies.
