  • Denise Laurel to undergo breast surgery to remove lump

    The 29-year-old actress' doctors advised that there is no immediate need to have the cyst in her breast taken out, but Denise just wants the procedure to be over. “They said I could take my time, but it’s getting bigger and it’s getting bothersome," she said, referring to the lump. In 2016, Denise had a cancer scare when several lumps were detected in her breast, ovaries, and lymph nodes. She, however, assured her fans in June of the same year that she is cancer-free. To keep herself healthy, "[I just] make sure I stay away from chicken with steroids and the non-organic food," and that she gets enough exercise and sleep. Denise is mom to 6-year old son Alejandro.

    Marian Rivera on teaching baby Zia proper hygiene: "Bata pa lang, sanayin na"

    The actress and TV host could not stress enough the importance of starting your kids young -- especially when it comes to healthy habits. "Tini-train ko talaga!" she says, adding that at less than two years old, her daughter already knows she has to brush her teeth before sleeping, when she wakes up, and after every meal. She has also taught baby Zia to wash herself 'down there'. “Hindi puwedeng hindi siya mag-wash ng 'peng-peng' niya. Kahit anong mangyari, kahit naantok ka, natutulog ka, gigisingin kita, huhugasan kita,” the mom of one said. “Mas maganda siguro, bata pa lang sinasanay mo na.” (pep.ph)

    McDonalds to start limiting antibiotics use in chicken products by 2018
    The fastfood giant says it will implement a new global policy with regard to the use of antibiotics in its chicken supply by next year, with the exception of some markets in Europe and Australia. Antibiotics are used by poultry farmers in chickens not only to prevent and treat outbreaks of disease, but also to help the birds gain weight more quickly, but scientists have in the past suspected a link between drug-resistant bacteria in humans and antibiotics injected to animals. This new move is part of McDonalds' efforts to help curb humans' microbial resistance to drugs, which, according to estimates, may be causing more deaths than cancer in decades to come.
