Reports on ‘fake rice’ cut traders’ revenues

DAVAO City––The Confederation of Grains Retailers Association of the Philippines (Grecon)-Davao on Friday said the revenues of rice retailers in Davao Region have dropped by 30 percent since two weeks ago, following reports on “fake” rice penetrating the local market. Pablo Gonzales Jr., Grecon-Davao president, told the Kapihan sa PIA at NCCC Mall Davao on Friday that local consumption might have slightly plunged as the group earlier encouraged residents to consume whatever is left of their stock

at home, pending laboratory analysis done by the National Food Authority (NFA) and Food Development Center (FDC). T h e N FA f i n d i n g s showed the rice samples were not fake but tested for contaminants such as dibutyl phthalate, a nonfood grade chemical that serves as a binder for food packaging and softens the plastic.

Steag okays P5.87-M grant for Misamis Oriental CBMS Financial grant to boost Capitol’s capability in dev't planning, poverty monitoring VILLANUEVA, Misamis Oriental – The Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental will go one notch higher on its local development planning and poverty incidence monitoring when it begins utilizing GIS-aided information and data base for its program planning and anti-poverty campaign. This came after energyfirm STEAG State Power Inc.

The project is funded out of the provincial government’s share in a social fund that accrues from the electricity sales of SPI pur-

suant to ER 1-94 of the Department of Energy (DOE). CBMS is a tool designed to help LGUs diagnose the extent and causes of poverty in their respective localities and help them come-up with policies and programs to effectively address them. CBMS incorporates the design and methodology for data collection and processing, validation and utilization. The project aims to identify the province’s state of development and poverty gaps using the indicators of the UN-declared Millennium De velopment Goals (MDGs), establish baseline information for socio-economic investment programming, improve provincial land use planning, tax mapping and hazard identification in support of

Gov. Emano announces re-election bid in Misor Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor


ISAMIS Oriental--Provincial Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano on Saturday announced his reelection bid for the gubernatorial post in Misamis Oriental in 2016. Emano made the announcement during the culmination of the weeklong celebration of the anniversary of the launching of the Misamis Oriental Care System (MisOr CareS) at the provincial Capitol ground here. The governor became emotional when he recalled the infant days of the “MisOr CareS,” a point-of-care health program in lieu of the PhilHealth, a program that

became an object of derision by the political protagonists. “The political opposition made a mockery out of the MisOr CareS as a health program doomed to fail,” Emano said. He said that there were also times that: “I myself became suspicious of whether the provincial constituents would accept the MisOr CareS program.” Emano said that all the hecklers and suspicions of John Does were wrong because the MisOr CareS is now the most successful health care program that the provincial government has ever adopted. After one year, MisOr Cares already served 358,970 patients who availed of free medical services and social services that include free burial assistance, and scholarship grant, he said. Emano said that to continue the obsession of his administration to serve the poorest of the poor See misor, page A11

2 dead, 14 injured in clashes in Lanao Norte, Gingoog City

By Richel V. Umel and Carolyn Arguillas of MindaNews

ILIGAN City––A soldier was killed while seven others were wounded in an ambush along the national highway in Pantar town, Lanao del Norte at around 7:40 a.m. Monday. Col. Gilbert I. Gapay Commanding Officer of the 2nd Mechanized Infantry Brigade based in Ditucalan here said a squad of the 42nd Company of the 4th Mechanized Infantry Battalion on board a six-by-six

truck was on its way to Pantar for “admin rotation patrol” when ambushed by an undetermined number of armed men in Barangay Calanganan. “The troops were able to return fire. Two of the armed men were also wounded,” he said. The wounded troops were rushed to hospitals in neighboring Iligan City for treatment. The body of the soldier was also brought to Iligan. Gapay said troops are still on hot pursuit against the armed group who with-

drew towards the interior part of Pantar. The national highway was closed for traffic for at least an hour while the firefight lasted for 15 minutes, he said. The military and the Philippine National Police had earlier established a buffer zone inside Pantar to prevent further bloodshed caused by a rido (clan feud) and political dispute, Gapay added. Gapay said they are looking at three possible motives behind the See clashes, page A11

The ‘web of conspiracy’ in the electoral process The hotly contested mayoral post in Cagayan De Oro City would be one of the most exciting electoral races in the locality in 2016. Every would-becandidate is eyeing on the city’s growing purse. Whoever becomes mayor would have direct access to the city’s financial minefield. Call it hypocrisy, but all those who eye the city’s mayoral post have one thing in common: Control of the city’s financial resources. Unless the electorates entrust the mayoral post to the right person, the city’s financial coffers would always be at the mercy of the “Kleptomaniacs.” By the way, in a “Kleptocratic” administration, those who run the affairs of the government have one thing in common: Steal the people of their hard-earned taxes. Under this condition, the sources of funds for various projects are not transparent. As a way of confusing the taxpayers, the beclouding of the financial condition is always the order of the

day. Deceptions and lie laced all pronouncements and purported accomplishments by the “Kleptocrats.” The electorates, however, are aware of the thieves in the government. Obviously, the electorates denounced and condemned to the highest degree the public officials who steal the people’s money. What makes matters worse is that the “corrupt” always manages to win an electoral contest. The electorates have always questioned why the corrupt candidates win a post in public offices. Well, many share the suspicions that the election of corrupt officials to public office is part of the game by those who control the affairs of the government. Some also surmised that the elected officials are part of the web of conspiracy of the state. The allegation of being “part of the web of conspiracy” seems likely since the state appoints the members of the electoral body. Notwithstanding, it is the supreme obligation

of the electorates to be on guard. The electorates should not allow the election of public officials perceived to be corrupt. It is the duty of the electors to resist, any time, in the slightest suspicion of rigging in the outcome of the election. Otherwise, delaying the decisive action would allow the corrupt candidates and their minions to plan for counter actions. When is the proper time to act against “the perceived to be” corrupt public officials? The action should start, the earlier the better. The electorates should adopt

a concerted measure that would discourage and deter the corrupt public officials (elected or not) to carry out electoral plans. A concerted effort to discredit the corrupt official(s) should start in time in order to awaken and guide the electorates for future actions. For instance, the electors should not sit down on reports about the “corruption” of the biometric registrations of the electorates. The electors have the right to information on the corrective measures that the electoral body has adopted. It is the right of the electors to inquire on the status of their registration, too. It is also the right of the electors to deny reelection of elected public officials who failed the expectation of the people. It is the right of the electors to vigorously campaign against elected public officials, suspected of draining the financial coffers of the government. Send comments/ reactions: crisguardian@

Financial Inclusion, BSP style (1)

Speaking Out

Ignacio Bunye At its very basic, financial inclusion means providing access to financial services at affordable costs to sections of disadvantaged and low-income of society. These services include savings or deposit services, payment and transfer services, credit and insurance. Studies have shown that the converse of financial inclusion, i.e., financial exclusion, has a high correlation to poverty incidence. But access is just a first step in a ladder-type three-pronged framework for achieving financial inclusion. The other two steps involve a) Financial Education and Literacy and b.) Financial Con-

sumer Protection. BSP Governor Tetangco explains these closelyintertwined steps in his article which appeared in the March 2015 issue of Philippine Rotary. Improving access to financial services Here it is very important to emphasize the need for an effective partnership between the BSP and the private financial institutions and other stakeholders. BSP provides the enabling environment through its policies and regulations. The financial institutions and other stakeholders provide a.) financial access points b.) the optimum mix of financial products , in both cases by leveraging the appropriate technology. As a result of this partnership, there are now more financial products, compared to five years ago, which are now available to the previously “unbanked”. These products include, but are not limited to, micro-finance, micro-insurance, microhousing, micro-agri loans and Kiddie Accounts. Tetangco also reports

that 3 years ago, 37 per cent of cities/municipalities had no banking presence and therefore classified as “unserved”. Today, because of ATMs, e-money agents, pawnshops, savings and loans associations, remittance agents and money changers, “unserved” communities have been reduced to just 12.6 per cent. The BSP has partnered with the Bank Marketing Association of the Philippines in launching the Kiddie Account Program – designed to encourage children 12 years and below to open savings accounts. There has been an obs er ve d incre as e in the number of deposit accounts by about 7.2 million compared to two years ago. About 6.6 million of these new accounts can be traced to Kiddie Accounts – a proof that efforts to invite more participants (especially among the young) into the formal banking system is gaining traction.

DA-MRDP inaugurates P26.5M First Rubber Processing Facility in Caraga By AURELIUS ARAIS

PROSPERIDAD, Agusan del Sur – Undoubtedly, the province of Agusan del Sur is the rubber capital in Caraga Region but who knows, massive production and earnest government support could propel it as Mindanao’s top rubber supplier in the near future. On July 7, 2015, a P26.5-million Crumb Rubber Processing Facility was inaugurated and turned over to the Farmers Alternative Self-Reliance Multi-Purpose Cooperative (FARSMCO) in Barangay San Vicente here. The multi-million project was funded by the Department of AgricultureMindanao Rural Development Program (DA-MRDP) under the Community Fund for Agricultural Development (CFAD) with counterpart funding from the

provincial government of Agusan del Sur, municipal government of Prosperidad and FARSMCO. Gracing the opening rites were DA-Caraga Regional Director Edna Mabeza, Community Development Specialist Samson Mate of MRDP Program Support Office, Governor Adolph Edward Plaza, First District Rep. Valentina Plaza, Mayor Albin Magdamit, FARSMCO officers and members, other local government officials and town residents. Mabeza said that the establishment of the rubber processing facility is a manifestation of DA’s total support to uplift the farmers’ quality of life. “Ang panglantaw sa Department of Agriculture wala na magconcentrate sa produksyon. Naglantaw na ta gikan sa ‘processing’, unya

‘marketing’ (DA’s vision is not only on production, but from production to processing, then marketing),” she said. She encouraged the recipient cooperative to come up with quality crumb rubber to make it competitive with other producers in Mindanao. Governor Plaza said the rubber processing plant is a big boost to the provincial government’s program called Upland Sustainable Agro-forestry Development (USAD) in which planting of rubber is one of the priorities. Arnaldo Silverio, FARSMCO chairman said the project is a big help to their cooperative and vowed to take good care of the facility. “Katumanan gyud ni sa among mga damgo, dako gyud ni ug ikatabang

DA-11 milling operation assures safe,quality rice Carina L. Cayon

MATANAO, Davao del Sur – An official of the Department of Agriculture’s rice processing center here has assured that the rice milled from the facility are safe and of good quality. Engr.Ricardo Onate Jr. project manager of the Davao Rice Processing Complex,raised the assurance during a media tour at the complex amidst the fake rice scare in the region. Onate said the RPC Davao only provides safe, quality and affordable rice to its consumers mostly from Davao City and Digos City.

The processing complex based in the municipality of Matanao in Davao del Sur province mainly provides processing services such as drying, storing and milling of rice bought from producers in said town and neighboring areas. Onate said that the one-stop service center is equipped with state-of-the-

The Dabaw City Sports Council coordination with the So Kim Cheng Foundation, will announce the outstanding athletes for this year’s So Kim Cheng Sports Awards, slated on July 22, 2015, at 6 p.m. at the Royal Mandaya Hotel ballroom. This year’s Male and Female Athletes of the Year are karatekas Julian Ambrose “Jam” Ramirez and Darlene Ross Maramara Ponce combined with Maramara and Ramirez to win the gold in the mixed synchronized team kata in the 16th Malaysian Milo

art postharvest facilities and technologies capable of producing genuine premium, well milled and regular milled rice. He said that with the capability of mechanical dryer to dry fresh palay harvest, preservation of the quality of newly harvested palay is also assured. He added that the RPC has higher milling recovery of 65 percent and only 15% loss compared to other milling facilities which only have 50% milling recovery. About 50 to 60 bags of rice are being milled at

the RPC in an hour or 400 to 480 bags of rice in an eight-hour operation, or an average of 3,000 bags of rice in one month. Onate said they have already established regular suppliers of palay from various farmers’ organizations and irrigators’ associations such as the Badagoy Irrigators Association in Magsaysay, Davao del Sur. He said individual farmers or farmers groups could directly go to the RPC with a minimum requirement of 100 bags to avail of the drying and milling services.

The established markets of the milled rice from the RPC include food chains, public markets and Gaisano malls in Digos City and Davao City. The RPC Davao is one of the four rice processing facilities located in major rice producing provinces in the country being operated by DA as a grant from the government of Korea through the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) with a total funding of $13 million. RPC Davao started its full operation in August 2013.

The other RPCs are found in Pangasinan, Iloilo and Bohol. The first RPC was built in Aurora, Quezon Province. As the recipient province and municipality, the Davao del Sur provincial government and the Matanao municipal government provided their respective counterpart of construction preparations. DA-XI, meanwhile, handles the RPC operations and owns the one-hectare area where the facility is presently put up. (PIA-XI/ Carina L. Cayon)

This holds very true for PhilHealth Region XI when it formally conferred the proceeds generated from its run for a cause activity to the SOS Children’s Village in Bajada, Davao City. In Davao City, more than 5,000 runners converged to join the cause and a total of P1.5 million was generated from this momentous success. Leonilo Rivero, SOS Davao’s Village Director and a product of SOS Tacloban himself, received the check on behalf of the organization’s home-based and community-based children both coming from

within and beyond the periphery of Davao City, Rivero who also stood as a father to these children could not contain his gratitude saying, “I could say a million thank you’s but it wouldn’t be enough to express how truly grateful we are. This will go a long way to help the children in the village”. Phi l he a lt h-XI SubCommittee Chairperson Filbert Br yan Sollesta, for his part, lauded the benevolent efforts of the organization and shared how the team came to identify SOS Davao as this year’s chosen recipients. “Higit po sa pagbibigay ng tirahan, pagkain, maisusuot o pag-alaga sa kalusugan at edukasyon, nakita namin (sa PhilHealth) nahinuhubog ng SOS ang buong pagkatao ng mga bata,” Sollesta remarked. Also present in the turnover rites were Department of Health (DOHXI) Regional Director Dr. Abdullah Dumama Jr.

and Dr. Jocel Viillafuerte representing the office of City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. Both have expressed concern for SOS Davao and vouched to support the village as well as Philhealth in their undertakings. Meanwhile, the activity also highlighted the recognition of sponsors and partners from both public and private institutions who left no stone unturned just to help Philhealth reach its goal. To convey their heartfelt gratitude, the talented children of SOS Davao indulged the guests in various song and dance presentations during most part of the program. The whole activity was a meaningful and worthwhile experience for all. But perhaps, the most significant part is seeing the genuine smiles marked in the faces of these children whose lives have been touched by everyone who took part in the run.

Leading scientist warns of impacts of climate change By AMY CRUZ of

“PRACTICALLY every spot on the Earth has warmed,” said Dr. Rodel Lasco, World Agroforestry Centre Philippines country coordinator, presenting the key findings on climate change in Asia from the fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) at the 2015 Green Seminar Series— “Finding solutions towards climate-resilient communities”—at the University of the Philippines Los Baños Climate Risk Studies Center and School of Environmental Science and Management recently. “Clearly, climate change does not only affect natural ecosystems but also the lives of people,” he pointed out. Lasco is the lead author of the Asia chapter of the IPCC’s Working Group 2 , which looks at the impacts of, and adaptation

“Declines in agricultural productivity owing to climate change will mean greater food insecurity for the growing population.”

and vulnerability to, climate change. He emphasised that there is a consensus among scientists that global temperatures are increasing and rainfall patterns and amounts will be hard to predict. “This translates into uncertainty regarding future freshwater availability in most parts of Asia,” he said. “This will be exacerbated by the lack of good management and increase in water demand owing to population growth and higher standards of living. This is likely to worsen water scarcity throughout the region.” The uncertainty extends to predictions regarding

tropical cyclones, the frequency of which might actually decrease or perhaps remain unchanged. However, Lasco noted that it’s likely that those cyclones that do occur will show an increase in maximum wind speed and rainfall, meaning greater likelihood of “super storms.” Furthermore, coastal communities will probably experience severe impact from the rising sea-levels in the Asian Arctic, which, combined with changes in permafrost and longer lengths of ice-free seasons, will cause greater erosion of beachside land while coastal freshwater swamps

and marshes will suffer from saltwater intrusion. Lowlying coastal rice fields, too, are in danger, especially those in the Mekong Delta, where nearly a third of productive land is slated to be salt-affected. Farmers there are already seeing their fields becoming unusable except as fish farms. Out at sea, ocean acidification and warming will increase damage to coral reefs while warm-water species might move towards more temperate areas and marine biodiversity generally in the tropics may decrease if temperatures exceed tolerable limits. This will likely cause strains on seafood supplies to increasing populations. Back on land, shifts in the reproductive cycles, growth rates and distribution of plant and animal species have already been observed.

Catholic church climate petition drive gets going By Raymond A. Sebastián of CBCP News

Inspired by the encyclical “Laudato Si’,” the Catholic Church in the Philippines, led by Manila Archbishop Luís Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle, spearheaded the Catholic Climate Petition campaign recently, and called on all Filipinos to take action now for the sake of what Pope Francis describes as “our common home.” 75 parishes and counting “A first round of 75 parishes have already received the campaign materials and will start collecting signatures in Sunday masses,” said Lou Arsenio, coordinator of the Archdiocese of Manila (RCAM)’s Ministry on Ecology, as well as of the Global Catholic Climate Movement (GCCM) in the Philippines, in a press release, noting that the launch was just the first step towards a massive mobilization of the Philippine Church backed by her leaders. The first petition events are currently ongoing, and are addressed to diocesan leaders from the regions of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. See PETITION, page A11

In Disaster Preparedness: DepEd’s DRRMS and guidelines for schools By Marissa U. Bahala Master Teacher I Balulang Elementary School

The Philippines is situated in the Pacific Ring of Fire. In other words, it is prone to earthquake, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis, and also typhoons, flooding and landslides. This fact requires all entities to prepare because calamities might come anytime. In their part, Department of Education stressed the importance of disaster risk reduction and management in schools.

This is because adequate preparedness can mitigate the effects of disasters on schools, personnel and students. They believe that preparedness can reduce the harmful effects of these disasters to people in schools and as well damages of infrastructures and facilities that could disrupt classes. It is important for the school administration to ensure the safety of people and property before, during and after an emergency so that there is protection, and could also ensure safety of lives and minimal damages

or even no disruption to delivery of education. Further, schools are encouraged to study weather disturbances, their signs, warning systems and effects and regularly conduct disaster response drills. The school should as well observe the rules set by the higher ranks upon an arrival of typhoons, for example. Department of Education has set rules on suspension of classes to keep parents aware and students danger-free in times of calamities. Classes in pre-school, elementary and

high school in all public and private schools are automatically suspended with storm signal number 2. Moreover, classes in all levels, are automatically suspended with storm signal number 3 and all travel and outdoor activities are cancelled with storm signal number 4. During times of calamities, it is important that everyone is prepared to ensure the protection of life and resources, and thus, making normalization easier to achieve afterwards.

Great learning venue: Exposure to news and current affairs By Generesa B. Asister Teacher III Tiaman Elementary School Bonifacio West District

“More information is always better than less. When people know the reason things are happening, even if it’s bad news, they can adjust their expectations and react accordingly. Keeping people in the dark only serves to stir negative emotions.” − Simon Sinek Education is encouraged not to be cornered

L ett i ng t hem k now the current events is one avenue to that. Needless to say, young individuals should be aware of what was happening right there and then. They should know the dealings and affairs that go around his environment. Updating through newspapers, magazines, radio,

televisions and social media is the main avenue towards achieving student awareness. These are the basic tools of information, and students should be exposed to these things comes to learning. Besides, these will help them a lot in practicing their right to information and will further open their mind, for them to understand beyond what was presented. It is also important that teachers and parents are there to guide them and explain what bothers them.

Implementing such activity is through planting one or more hours of reading news. This will let them absorb news and fresh information. Acquiring their opinions and personal thoughts about the most trending topic will stir their imagination and make them analyze news critically. Seeking learning is a way that makes people involved. All avenues possible should be used and encouraged, even the ones outside the school.

motivated his decision to run for re-election in 2016. “Never again shall the poor dread the thoughts of hospitalization and the cost of medication.

Never again shall the poor feel lesser because they cannot give decent burials for their dead relatives and loved ones,” Emano said.

the impact of climate change on the vegetation of the lowland tropics is still poorly understood and hence planning for more adaptive food-crop species in particular biophysical zones is limited, with potentially dire consequences for humans. “Declines in agricultural productivity owing to climate change will mean greater food insecurity for the growing population,” he said. Most models show higher temperatures leading to shorter growing periods and lower rice yields although losses because of heat stress may be offset in part with carbon-dioxide fertilization enhancing plant growth of rice and other crops. Drought is already causing crop failure in the Philippines. Photo: World Agroforestry Centre How can we adapt? “Let’s just adapt now, for now,” urged Lasco. The main thing is to address the current climate risks and eliminate the “adaptation deficit,” that is, the differ-

ence between what has actually been done and what else could have been done. “Governments should focus on adapting to the climate now.” He suggested that integrated water management, including technologies and practices that save water or increase water productivity and reuse, could help in adapting to climate change right now, even in areas that currently experience an abundance of water. People can also prepare for extreme tropical cyclones by improving forecasting and early-warning systems. “Communities should know when the events are coming and what to do when they come,” he said. As for endangered species, although the Philippines has mandated protected areas, most are only protected on paper and not in practice. “The Philippines has lost 50% of its forest cover even without climate change,” pointed out Dr Lasco. “So, habitat destruction must first be addressed before looking towards adapting or shifting protected areas in response to climate change.” But much more work needs to be done, and quickly. More studies need to be carried out of observed changes in climate and their impact in North, Central and West Asia, as well as improving projections for precipitation and water supply throughout the region. Health studies which look at the effects of the interaction between heat and air pollution are also needed. “Particular studies in the tropics should focus on the temperature dependence of carbon fixation by trees and the thermal tolerances and the capacity of plants and animals to adapt to climate change,” recommended Lasco. “It’s clear that much needs to be done, now, if we are to adapt to the future that we have helped create.”

Nationwide drive Meanwhile, on July 10, the Permanent Councils of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) hosted a presentation of the petition campaign, which is expected to be followed by a series of GCCM events throughout the country. Leaders of the Church in the country have responded to the Holy Father’s latest encyclical by supporting the petition which aims to collect at least one million signatures to convince world leaders who will be present at a climate summit in Paris, France in late November about the pressing issue of environmental degradation.

for climate action. Pope Francis endorsed the petition campaign in May when he met with representatives of the movement at the Vatican. Everyone’s issue In an earlier CB CP News post, Manila Auxiliary Bishop Broderick S. Pabillo pointed out the environment is an issue that should concern not only scientists and specialists, given that its conservation or destruction has implications that can directly affect the future of all, especially the poor. “Does the Church have a right to teach on environmental issues? Yes! Our Father in heaven created nature … and He created it good. And since we are all children of God, it is only our duty to care for all that our Father had created,” he explained. Charity He said caring for the environment is one of the many ways the faithful can concretely express charity to their neighbors, particularly the “poorest of the poor,” whom he laments are the ones often most affected by flash floods, landslides, and other hazards like the greed of policy-makers and industrialists bring about “in the name of progress.” Pabi l lo f ur t her b emoaned that many capitalists, particularly those involved in irresponsible mining, see the environment and its resources merely as something to be exploited for profit.

rice matched (a 90 percent likelihood) for the presence of dibutyl phthalate,” the briefer added. The rice retailers’ group is not discounting the possibility that it could be an economic sabotage just to put Davao City in bad light. None of its 232 members in Davao Region has reported on “fake” rice, although they are encouraged to report if there is a any suspicious supply. Gonzales added that Davao City has sufficient supply of rice. According to NFA 11, the city has so far 500,000 bags of rice, each weighing 50 kgs, while the daily consumption is estimated at 10,000 bags. For her part, NFA 11 director Dianne Silva said the contamination of dibutyl phtalate might have been due to improper food handling. “Mao na ang possibility na amo gina-tanaw karon nga ang problema naa sa food handling (That’s one possibility that we are currently looking at. The problem could be in the food handling),” she said. She urged local consumers not to panic because it is not conclusive yet whether the “fake” rice has penetrated the markets here. Prices of rice have not been affected, despite re-

ports on alleged “fake” rice. For a kilo of well-milled rice, the average price remains the same at P39 since last month; same goes for regular rice priced at P35.50 since last month. (Antonio L. Colina IV / MindaNews)

of overweight and obesity both referred as overnutrition is highlighted because of their increasing prevalence not only in the country but in the whole world. “What’s alarming is it is continuously increasing over the years, within 2 decades,” she said. Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health. It will increase risk for cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, various forms of cancer and musculoskeletal disorders, among others. In adults, the prevalence has almost doubled from 16.6% in 1993 to 31.1% in 2013. For preschool children, the prevalence has been below 2% from 1989 to 1998 but has gradually increased to 4.9% in 2013. For children, 5.08% to 10 years old, the prevalence is higher at 5.8% in 2003 but has gone down to 5% in 2013. Among the 10.0819 years age group, the prevalence has increased from 5.8% in 2003 to 8.3% in 2013. In Northern Mindanao, based on the results produced by the national nutrition surveys of FNRI-DOST the prevalence of overweight and obesity for 0-5 years children are 4.8 and 3.6 for 5.08-10 years old. For 10.0819.0 years, result prevalence is 7.0 and 33.9 for 20 years old and above. The surveys revealed as well that the prevalence of overweight and obesity increases as wealth increases. Navales is encouraging everyone to fight, prevent and manage overweight and obesity. There are various policies and plans and as well as programs of NNC and different government agencies that supports this fight. NGF is leading the Promote Good Nutrition (PGN) program to address hunger and malnutrition in the country through counseling and nutrition education, as part of it. They also have this FoodBased Dietary Guidelines for Filipinos in forms of 10 Kumainments and Pinggang Pinoy that provide key messages in promoting health through proper nutrition and adoption of healthy lifestyle. Another one is Department of Health’s healthy lifestyle campaign called “Pilipinas Go 4 Health” which aims to inform and engage the youth and young adults in forming healthy habits and practicing healthy lifestyle. The 2015 Nutrition Month celebration would not just be observed during

July. NNC announced that it should be done year-round to help decrease prevalence of everweight and obesity.
