Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (June 16, 2016)
1. 37-year-old Park was arrested for spraying glacial acetic acid on his girlfriend’s face who wanted to break up with Park. Police found that Park committed the crime because his girlfriend wanted to put an end to their relationship and did not see him since then.
I have nothing else to say. A foolish guy.
2. According to Wall Street Journal, the World Health Organization (WHO) excludes coffee from the category list which has a possibility to pose a cancer risk in 25 years. Since 1990, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified coffee in category 2B, which was seen as a possible link to bladder cancer.
In contrast, coffee is beneficial for preventing or curing cancer. Coffee’s mysterious benefits.
3. In South Korea, a small-packaged ‘mini product’ that contains smaller fruits and vegetables is gaining popularity as a result of the recent trend of the small family such as ‘a family with one child’ and ‘single house income’. In response to the consumer pattern, farmers and agricultural research institute will develop small sized products and local retailers sell small packaged products.
People these days are not warm-hearted. Why don’t they share food?
4. Mothers only have to pay 5% of total costs of Caesarian birth from this July. Until now, out-of-pocket costs have been 20% of the total C-section delivery fee, but it goes down to 5%, which is about 25% of the previous fee.
I don’t think more mothers will have a caesarian birth due to affordable costs, but doctors should not encourage mothers to have one. A safe delivery is the best.
5. More than half of aging society experts responded that the age standard of a senior citizen is 70. The response demonstrates that members of Korean society share the view that the norm age which is set at the age of 65 should be raised.
Is this a way to reduce old-age pensions and various benefits? They did not do much for senior citizens.
