BFAR raises red tide alert in Pampanga



CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) on Friday imposed a shellfish ban in this province due to the presence of red tide toxins in its coastal waters.

Based on the latest laboratory results of BFAR Regional Fisheries Laboratory 3 (Central Luzon), shellfish samples collected from Pampanga’s waters tested positive for the paralytic shellfish poison.

“The public is advised to refrain from eating, gathering or harvesting, transporting and marketing shellfish from the coastal areas in this province until such time that the toxicity level has gone below the regulatory limit,” BFAR-3 Director Lilian Garcia said in a statement.

BFAR laboratory results showed that shellfish samples collected in the coastal waters of Pampanga have 840 unit grams of Saxotoxin per 100 grams of shellfish meat, which is beyond the regulatory limit of 60 unit grams of Saxotoxin per 100 grams.

The BFAR, however, said fish, crabs, and shrimps are safe to eat as these are not affected by red tide.

Garcia also said that BFAR and the provincial government are continuously monitoring the coastal waters to safeguard public health and protect the fishery industry. (PNA)

Too Much Bubble Tea Can Make You Constipated



Many individuals seek the refreshing taste of bubble tea as a cool treat on a hot day. However, a recent report made by the digital news platform Asia One is slowly making enthusiasts of the drink wonder if it indeed poses serious health problems.

According to the statement, a 14-year-old was rushed to a Chinese hospital because of stomach pains that were believed to have been caused by drinking too much bubble tea that contains about a hundred tapioca pearls. The doctors who observed the patient said that those pearls might have build up inside her body, resulting in a blockage.

At first glance, it seems like a sensationalized narrative, but it did take place. If there is anything that one needs to learn from the situation, it is to enjoy things in moderation.

Dr. Ryan Marino, an emergency physician at UPMC in Pittsburgh, admits that it could be possible for tapioca to stick together in the stomach which may eventually lead to constipation.

He believes that such a situation is supported by the possibility of uncooked and undercooked tapioca pearls that are not easily digested by the stomach. He also thinks that to experience a severe problem, one would have to drink large amounts of bubble tea. Allegedly, the girl revealed that she drank one bubble tea before being rushed to the hospital.

There are indeed many causes of constipation that people may not be aware of. Truly, drinking bubble tea is one of these causes. That said, Marino emphasized the importance of maintaining a healthy diet.

He said that the amount of water people drink in a day could make them more or less constipated as well. Therefore, someone who drinks bubble tea way too much and getting a significant blockage is an extreme example. If one is drinking something that is doused in sugar, it is crucial to keep the body hydrated.

The verdict? Always remember to drink bubble tea sparingly. If people want to enjoy their boba, the first step that should be taken into account is the regular habits one need to do like drinking plenty of water.
