Aklan PHO: Avoid oily, fatty and salty food this Christmas

Written by Jay-Ar Arante

Avoid eating oily, fatty and salty foods.

This is what the Aklan Provincial Health Office (PHO) advices the public in relation to the celebration of parties this holiday season.

According to Aklan PHO Officer Dr. Cornelio Cuachon Jr., it is important to be aware of what you are eating during Christmas parties particularly those that will put your health at risk and may lead to killer diseases such as hypertension and heart problems.

Cuachon added, not only food but alcohol intake during these occasions can also be a big health risk factor.

The doctor also advised the public to instead prepare complete and “well-balanced” food with vegetables and fruits on Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
