TAIPEI — Personal hygiene is very important and it’s something that we should never ignore! Most of us probably take at least one shower a day (may depend on climate and other conditions!) and brush our teeth twice a day but for this Taiwanese woman, she really did her part in saving water by taking a bath only once a year.

And for this odd reason, she was compelled to divorce with her husband.

Yes, you heard it right. A Taiwanese man was granted for divorce as his wife’s reluctance to take a shower, among other problems, was preventing them from starting a family.

The New Taipei City District Court on Thursday (Jan 4) approved a petition for divorce by a husband who claimed psychological torture due to his now ex-wife’s unsanitary habits, according to Taipei Times.

The plaintiff, who remains unnamed, said that his wife, surnamed Lin, only bathed once a year and did not brush her teeth or wash her hair on a regular basis.

The man claimed that he had suffered psychological torture from her bad personal hygiene. In the beginning, the man said that she wasn’t that bad. When they were dating, she would bath once a week but after they got married, things got worse.

After they tied the knot, her personal hygiene habits gradually grew worse to the point that a decade later, bathing was just a once in a year.

He explained that she would only take a bath during New Year and when she finally stepped into the bathroom, her shower took three hours.

The man said that due to Lin’s unhygienic habits, they only had sex once a year, which prevented the couple from having children for a decade.

To cover up any nasty bad breath, Lin would rather chew gum (than brush her teeth) to get her breath minty fresh and she’d also rather put on a hat to cover her oily hair, instead of washing it like most of us do.

He also alleged that his wife discouraged him from having a job and the couple was unemployed, while living with her parents. He was forced to rely on his mother-in-law for their living expenses.

“We remained poor, as neither of us had a job,” the man said, adding that he was even unable to pay his National Health Insurance contribution and could not afford to visit a dentist.

But in late 2015,the man finally decided to move out of the house and found a job in Hsinchu, but did not tell his wife. After a month, she found that he was working and demanded that he quit his job, but he refused and the man decided to file for divorce.

The wife has denied all the allegations as she said that her parents treated him like a son.

Red meat, white bread and sugar-laden drinks might increase risk of colon cancer

Heavy diet like red meats, refined grains, white bread and sugar-laden drinks might increase long-term risk of colon cancer, a new study suggests.

These foods all increase inflammation in our body, and the inflammation they cause is associated with a higher chance of developing colon cancer, according to pooled data from two major health studies appeared in JAMA Oncology journal.

According to researchers, a diet high in foods with the potential to cause inflammation, including meats, refined grains and high-calorie beverages, was associated with increased risk of developing colorectal cancer for men and women.

Basically, what makes for a healthy diet overall also appears to promote a cancer-free colon, said senior researcher Dr. Edward Giovannucci. He is a professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston.

“It’s consistent with what we already recommend for a healthy diet in general,” Giovannucci said, adding “I see that as good news. We’re supporting the current evidence, and not telling people to do something completely different from what they’ve been told.”

For the study, conducted by Fred K Tabung from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston, the team analysed 1,21,050 male and female health care professionals, who were followed for 26 years in long-term studies. The researchers completed the food questionnaires about what they ate, on the basis of which data analysis was done last year.

The scores were based on 18 food groups characterised for their inflammatory potential and were then calculated from the questionnaires given to participants every four years.

The results indicated that higher scores reflecting inflammation-causing diets were associated with a higher risk of developing colorectal cancer in men and women.

Previous studies have linked diet factors with colon cancer, but there’s been no clear explanation why that might be, he added.
