Know Your Enemy: How to Protect Yourself from Heart Attacks

The Medical City Clark sheds some light on this silent killer

Heart attacks, known as the “silent killer”, are a result of the build-up of fat, cholesterol, and other substances in the heart’s arteries, blocking the blood flow and therefore cutting the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the body. Most people who suffer from a heart attack have some form of coronary heart disease.

To this day, heart diseases still pose as a serious threat to millions of Filipinos. The Philippine Statistics Authority found that Coronary Heart and Artery Disease is the top cause of death in all regions in the Philippines, including North Luzon. A total of 14,658 deaths were recorded in the region in 2011 by the Department of Health. In a study they conducted in 2009, the number of lives claimed by cardiovascular diseases in the Philippines has doubled from 85,000 to 170,000 after 20 years.

The beauty of purifying water right at your home and office

Owning a purifier, directly attached to the tap, saves a family or office so many pesos a month, ensures their security from strangers, assures water quality that is of the highest purity standard and spares the home or office precious space, otherwise used for storing 5-gallon containers and operating water dispensers. Also, your drinking water would no longer have to be handled and delivered by a third party whose compliance to health and sanitation is hugely unknown.

One great advantage is that for the environment. Consumers don’t need to buy and throw away water PET bottles, thereby reducing household wastes that otherwise go to the landfills or oceans.

ABS-CBN Global, the organization that oversees all international subsidiaries of ABS-CBN Corporation, the Philippines’ largest media and entertainment company, has named this month Jun Del Rosario as the new Managing Director for North and Latin America region and Raymund Abog as Country Manager for Canada. 

Del Rosario succeeds Olivia De Jesus who took over the reins of ABS-CBN Global as the new Chief Operating Officer this year. 

As the new managing director of ABS-CBN’s North and Latin America operations, Del Rosario will be directly responsible for leading strategy execution, business operations, and profitability for the region.  He will also lead the development of growth, expansion, and market penetration strategies as well as exploring business development opportunities in untapped or underserved markets across the entire region.

Global icon Dwayne Johnson headlines the action adventure “Rampage,” directed by Brad Peyton.

Johnson stars as primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who keeps people at a distance but shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, incredibly rare albino silverback gorilla who has been in his care since he rescued the young orphan from poachers. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size.
