Sunshine Dizon drops charges against husband, to file for annulment
The Kapuso actress who made headlines in June last year when she revealed that she and Timothy Tan have split allegedly because of another woman has submitted an Affidavit of Desistance for the two charges she had previously filed against him, namely, Anti-Violence Against Women (R.A. 9262), and concubinage. This means that she no longer wishes to pursue them. "Ultimately I’m a mother, it’s sad that I won’t be able to give my children exactly what they want," she said in an interview yesterday with Pep. ph. "Ang pinaka-puwede ko lang mabigay ay yung gawan ko ng paraan na hindi masira yung relasyon ng anak ko sa tatay nila," she added.

Processed meats could worsen asthma symptoms, study says
A study links the aggravation of asthma symptoms to the consumption of large amounts of cured meats like bacon, corned beef, ham, and pepperoni. Published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Thorax, it looked into the lifestyle of 971 adults from France, who on average consumed 2.5 servings of processed meat a week. Results reveal that those who ate four or more servings of cured meat a week were 76 percent more likely to have worsened asthma symptoms compared to those who ate less that 1 serving a week. "Cured meats are rich in nitrites which may lead to any kind of oxidative stress related lung damage and asthma," said Dr. Sunit Jariwala, director of allergy and immunology research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center in New York City.
