Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (March 8, 2016)
1. A study found that drinking more water does not only control body weight but also reduces sodium, sugar, and saturated fat intake. A person who drinks 1 to 3 more glasses per day can cut 200 calories off the daily intake and reduces the amount of sodium, sugar, and saturated fat.
But don’t fill your stomach with too much water.
2. Makgeolli, Korean traditional rice can reduce the risk of stomach cancer. Beta-sitosterol, the key ingredient in rice, slows the growth of stomach cancer cells.
Drinking too much Makgeolli to prevent stomach cancer may lead to liver cancer. Please don’t drink too much.
3. The New York Times says that the South Korean Government is accused of using defamation laws to silence critics. It argues that the police and prosecutors failed to protect people’s right in South Korea.
You can’t make a phone call to complain, I guess. That’s very embarrassing.
