Watchmen Daily Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

The Iloilo City Health Of­fice (CHO) re­cently rec­om­mended eat­ing moder­ately this Christ­mas sea­son.

“Eat­ing your fa­vorite food is not pro­hib­ited, like if you want to eat le­chon, but you should eat moder­ately,” ex­plained Iloilo City health of­fi­cer, Dr. Bernard Caspe.

He noted, con­sum­ing foods with too much sugar and choles­terol may re­sult in hy­per­ten­sion and di­a­betes.

Caspe added, CHO and all nine health cen­ters of­fer free blood pres­sure mon­i­tor­ing and con­sul­ta­tion, along with free med­i­ca­tion for those with hy­per­ten­sion and di­a­betes.
