Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Environment Sabah, Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun also expressed his support and said, “Processed food has become a huge part of our culture; the main causes of coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer can be traced directly to our eating habit. This is why we need to make an effort to cut out processed foods and eat more organic foods to detox. I am very pleased that Discover Kota Kinabalu is highlighting this issue and will be showcasing brands that make it their mission to educate the public about the importance of going natural, eating clean and keeping fit at Discover Wellness.”
