Dr. Alfredo Galvez, born in the northern region of the Philippines, has discovered a unique plant peptide that has been clinically shown to suppress tumors and inhibit disease. Dr. Galvez, a graduate of University of the Philippines-Los Banos, is a pioneer in the field of epigenetics.
This science has been studied for years, but its applications in cancer prevention, cholesterol reduction, and diabetes are just becoming known as a result of Dr. Galvez’s research and clinical trials. Most of Galvez’s research has been done at UC Davis and Cal Berkeley in California. His discovery is a game-changer in that the peptide, which he called ‘lunasin’ (Tagalog for ‘to heal’), can affect the genetic material in human cells. It literally turns “off” the bad genes and turns “on” the good genes in the human body. In other words, it makes cells less receptive to disease.
WASHINGTON -- Filipino American news anchor Liz Wahl quit from state-owned television station Russia Today (RT) while she was live on air Wednesday, March 5, telling viewers she could not in conscience work for a network that "whitewashes the actions" of the Russian leadership.
Wahl, who works with the network's Washington DC bureau, is making quite a stir in the social media for her bold resignation in the wake of the current crisis in Crimea.
Wahl, who described her background as Filipino and Hungarian-American descent, mentioned her family history as refugees from Soviet Hungary and the poverty of her mother's family in the Philippines, saying that it has always made working with Russia Today difficult for her.
