Before chop suey were ‘veggie kings’

By
HIGHLAND GREENS FOR THE LOWLAND. Vegetables grown in Benguet are shipped to various markets in Metro Manila and other provinces no matter how bad the weather gets.

Microorganisms develop resistance to the antibiotics when exposed to them frequently. Eventually, the antibiotics will no longer be effective in fighting future infections in this particular person, thus dramatically increasing the risk to life at that point.

‘Praning’ over prana

By

Since my wife started doing yoga, we’ve been eating more vegetables at home and practically no meat except fish. She’s determined to become a pesco-ovo-lacto-vegetarian (someone who eats only fish, eggs, dairy and veggies), an experiment that I predict will not last four months (I failed in my own experiment with meatlessness once).
