Milflores Publishing, Inc. has released “Anemia: Unmasking the Silent Enemy” by Dr. Jennifer A. AbengaƱa, Dr. Maria Socorro L. Agcaoili, and Dr. Ma. Angelina L. Mirasol (Consultant).

Anemia is a silent enemy because it is caused by so many health problems that it is often misdiagnosed or ignored. A 1998 survey showed that in the Philippines, more than half of infants less than a year-old, half of pregnant women, and 30-40 of those over 60 suffered from anemia.

All Filipinos need to know what causes anemia, how to detect it, how to prevent it, and how to treat it through this booklet that has been written by medical experts from the UP-PGH for the layman.

This booklet is the second title in a new health series of Milflores Publishing, Inc. that aims to provide expert medical information, in layman’s language, on common diseases and health hazards at affordable prices. The first tile was a guide to chronic kidney disease. Forthcoming titles this year will cover allergies (including asthma, dermatitis, and rhinitis), and snoring.

The editor of the Milflores Health Series is Dr. Agnes Dominguez Mejia, the current chair of the UP-PGH Department of Medicine and a professor at the UP College of Medicine. She specialized in Nephrology and Hypertension in the U.S. and has won national awards for her work in medical education.

Elbert Or and Zenaida N. Ebalan designed the cover and Zenaida N. Ebalan did the layout for “Anemia.”

“Anemia: Unmasking the Silent Enemy” is available at all National Book Store and PowerBooks branches, U.P. Press Bookstore, Solidaridad, Popular, and other major book stores at P140 per copy.

Price: P140.00 per copy
