MANILA — The House appropriations committee has approved the proposed funding requirement for a measure which seeks to consolidate all existing government-initiated identification (ID) systems into one integrated Filipino ID system.
In a statement on Friday, appropriations committee chair and Davao City Rep. Karlo Nograles said there would be enough government funds to carry out the implementation of a national ID system in the country. Bills requiring appropriations have to pass through Nograles' panel.
MOSCOW — Consuming just one small alcoholic beverage a day puts a person at a higher risk for breast cancer, according to a report released on Tuesday by the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund.
Having analyzed data on 12 million women and 260,000 cases of breast cancer from 119 studies, the researchers found that consuming as few as 10 grams of alcohol a day can increase premenopausal breast cancer risk by five percent and postmenopausal breast cancer risk by nine percent.
