The Public Health-Open Journal is a trusted journal with a thorough peer-review process. When our work was initially submitted, we thought all was fine but after passing through the hands of two editors we realised that there was still a lot to do. We never gave up! We embarked on the revision process for a while, coupling with our busy schedule. After a series of editing, the work was finally accepted for publication. We can now confirm that the reviewing process was indeed thorough and necessary. We will also add that all the members of this journal are committed to ensure that all articles published maintain the standard of a scientific work. This present work will have a positive impact in our society as we strive to encourage proper dietary lifestyle in order to mitigate diseases.

We are very glad having published our manuscript in the Public Health – Open Journal. Although the review process was lengthy and hectic, however, it added much to the quality of the manuscript and we have learned a lot from the reviewers’ comments. The reviewer comments helped us in finalizing the writing process to the quality standard of your journal. The final layout, galley proof, was ideal and well-ordered. It was a great exercise and a wonderful experience that we hope to repeat soon.
