In Vietnam, pink peach blossoms and golden ochna flowers are symbols of Spring. Ochnas bloom in southern Vietnam, while peach blossoms  the North. These flowers are the symbols of the Lunar New Year.

In Vietnam's Northern Highlands, wild peach blossoms appear like magic as Spring approaches. Tiny buds appear between the rocks in the Dong Van Rock Highlands. Spring is the most beautiful season to visit Ha Giang. The roads from Quan Ba to Yen Minh, especially around Dong Van, Lung Cu, and Meo Vac, are pink clouds of peach trees. Known as mountain or Hmong peach blossoms, these trees grow on mountain peaks, down the hills, and amidst the rock fences that encircle small hamlets. They  over tiny houses, spreading the magic of spring.

The mountain peach blossoms in Dong Van have five-pointed petals. The flowers are pink red, growing from slim and graceful branches. they look fragile, these peach trees can endure the severe mountain winds. Their pink flowers form a wonderful contrast to the surrounding dark stone walls and rocky gray mountains.

, the local Hmong people have turned the small spaces between spiky rocks into paddy fields. Muscular oxen and their masters grip the cliffs, the small bits of rich soil in order to survive. Corn and green mustard are two staple foods here and the main crops of the Hmong communities. Ears of corn are grilled to make mèn mèn, a delicious dish, and used to brew liquor that is sold in the local markets. In these mountains, green mustard plants display bright golden blossoms in the springtime, further decorating the landscape.

 

Read the passage below and answer the following questions.

In the last few decades, wine has gained a reputation for being good for our health. What is less well-known is that research has found strong links between alcohol and cancer. One bottle of wine per week is associated with an increased cancer risk for non-smokers of 1% for men and 1.4% for women. This equates one bottle of wine per week to five cigarettes for men, or 10 for women.  "While a lot of work has been done to communicate the link between smoking and cancer, this is less so for alcohol because public health officials control messaging for smoking, whereas with alcohol, it's largely been up to the alcohol industry to communicate this itself," says Mark Bellis, director of policy, research and international development at Public Health Wales.

The idea that a tipple can be beneficial dates back to the 1970s, when scientists found that French people were less likely to have heart disease than other populations, despite eating more saturated fat. There was a clear relationship between lower levels of heart disease and wine consumption. This came to be known as the French paradox - a conundrum which scientists are still untangling today. We have since been led to believe that moderate wine-drinking can reduce our risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and weight gain. As a result, for a long time, the consensus was that abstaining from alcohol is unhealthier than consuming moderate amounts of alcohol (equivalent to one or two drinks a day).

However, it is now widely understood that a lot of this data could be flawed: people abstaining from alcohol may be doing so because they're unwell, rather than becoming unwell because they're abstaining. In one 2019 study, researchers took a different approach to determine whether moderate alcohol intake really is linked to lower risk of heart disease. "Those with no defects can drink as much as they like. But those with a dysfunctional enzyme can't tolerate alcohol at all," says Zhengming Chen, one of the study's authors and professor of Epidemiology, at the University of Oxford's Nuffield Department of Population Health. Researchers also found that the more people drank, the more likely they were to experience high blood pressure and stroke - and there was no reduced risk among people who drank one to two units per day. There was no association either way with heart attacks. As a result, while there was a clear link between alcohol consumption and stroke risk, something in alcohol may protect us against heart attacks. It's important to note that the researchers converted all alcoholic drinks into standard alcoholic units, so the results aren't specific to wine. However, Chen argues wine wouldn't have shown any different results.

  • People are familiar with research on links between alcohol and cancer.
  • Not many people recognize alcohol is cause of their suffering from cancer.

  • It seems implausible that wine drinkers in French have a lower risk of heart disease.

  • A modest amount of alcohol was agreed to be more favorable for health than none at all.
  • It does more harm than good if people drink a little alcohol compared to not drinking at all.

What is NOT TRUE about the 2019 study?

  • It contradicts some popular ideas postulated in the 1970s.
  • It showed that wine affects people with a dissimilar health status differently.
  • It confirms that people who drink wine have a lower risk of heart attacks.
