Learn about Pneumonia: Facts, Figures and What You Can Do | World Pneumonia Day | BCHS- Alyssa Snyder | Scoop.it
RT @MiaFarrow: Pneumonia is biggest killer of children under 5, responsible for 18% or 1.3 million child deaths every year.

BCHS- Alyssa Snyder's insight:

Facts- Pneumonia is one of the leading causes of deaths among children. Many times is happens in the developing countries in which they are unable to get the vaccines but sometimes people just dont take their children in when they are sick. In 2011 alone 1.3 million children died of pneumonia and all of them were preventable.

Candy at the Cash Register — Obesity & Chronic Disease Risk Factor

Candy at the Cash Register — Obesity & Chronic Disease Risk Factor | BCHS- Alyssa Snyder | Scoop.it

A basic misconception has stymied our response to the obesity epidemic: the belief that food-related decisions are consciously and deliberately made. Our reluctance to interfere with or regulate the food environment is a direct consequence of the belief that people's food choices reflect their true desires. However, given the large proportion of people who claim that they want to lose weight and the small proportion who are actually able to do so, we must concede that human behavior doesn't always conform with professed goals. The reality is that food choices are often automatic and made without full conscious awareness. Placement of foods in prominent locations increases the rate at which they're purchased; purchase leads to consumption; and consumption of foods high in sugar, fat, and salt increases the risks of chronic diseases.  Although placement is a factor that is right in front of our noses, we should consider treating it as a hidden risk factor, like carcinogens in water, because placement influences our food choices in a way that is largely automatic and out of our conscious control and that subsequently affects our risk of diet-related chronic diseases.

BCHS- Alyssa Snyder's insight:

Many people believe it is their choice conciously of what they will buy and eat that night for their dinner. Sometimes it isnt, it could possibly be a subconcious decision made when we go to a store and look at the candy surrounding a cash register. Due to the placing of the sweet and sugar-rich foods, we are chosing them more than the nutrisous foods past generations would chose. Many things effect our eating ehaviour though, such as commercials, placings of food, whic many people would not think of as a major thing for chosing food, and also what our parents usually buy. We can prevent this by avoiding those aisles that have suh=gary foods or foods that are attractive to us located in them.

Pneumonia: Preventable with Vaccine

Pneumonia: Preventable with Vaccine | BCHS- Alyssa Snyder | Scoop.it
Pneumonia is the leading cause of vaccine-preventable death. More people are hospitalized in this area with pneumonia than heart failure.

BCHS- Alyssa Snyder's insight:

Prevention- Pneumonia is a repiratory infection within the lungs. It is one of the leading causes of preventable death in the U.S. alone. The best way to prevent Pneumonia is to stay as healthy as you can. Though many people still get pneumonia and many of those who get pneumonia do not get the vaccine, causing death. It is easily preventable but many people do not realize that what they have is apneumonia.

True or False – Ulcers are caused by stress? | wasmomwrong.com

True or False – Ulcers are caused by stress? | wasmomwrong.com | BCHS- Alyssa Snyder | Scoop.it
True or False – Ulcers are caused by stress? Posted on Feb 18, 2013. False. Many of us have a stereotype in our minds of the classic ulcer sufferer. We can picture them- overworked in a high-pressure job, overstressed both at work and at ...
BCHS- Alyssa Snyder's insight:

Ulcers are the thining or weakening of the stomach wall. Ulcers were thought to only occur to those people who are under a ton of stress, but in the 1980's a discovery was made that proved stress was not the leading cause for ulcers, Helicobacter pylori. This was proven to be the cause of most ulcers in people of any age.
