How contraception affects fertility, weight and your risk of cancer.

Cameron's comment, May 13, 2013 8:24 PM
It also states the truth about these contraceptive methods and that is "Whilst fertility is intentionally and permanently interrupted by male and female sterilisation techniques, the contraceptive pill, the vaginal ring and long-acting contraceptive implants and IUDs are all immediately reversible when stopped or removed" Thats right they are ALL IMMEDIATELY REVERSABLE.
Cameron's comment, May 13, 2013 8:27 PM
The main message in this article is that CONTRACEPTIVES ARE GOOD!!! and people need too understand the myths and the facts, otherwise they could end up facing bad consequences.
Cameron's comment, May 16, 2013 7:40 PM
The message in this article is very effective because it gives young women the ability to understand the facts and not the myths abut contraception

Teen pregnancies linked to TV

Pregnancy rates are higher in teens who watch a lot of TV with
sexual dialogue and behaviour, study says.

Cameron's comment, May 20, 2013 3:33 AM
This article is by far the most intriguing of the ones i have chosen to evaluate in depth. It talks about Groundbreaking research that suggests that pregnancy rates are much higher among teens who watch a lot of television with sexual dialogue and behaviour when compared with those who have tamer viewing tastes. This like many of the other articles i have chosen to inspect have evidence to support their claims, some evidence from this article is Teens who watched the raciest shows were twice as likely to become pregnant over the next three years as those who watched few such programs. Which is really quite astonishing!
Cameron's comment, May 20, 2013 3:34 AM
Some more astonishing facts are, TV shows that only highlight the positive aspects of sexual behaviour without the risks can lead teens to have unprotected sex "before they're ready to make responsible and informed decisions.
Cameron's comment, May 20, 2013 3:41 AM
The effectiveness of this message is quite good because as i have stated in my previous articles that this has experts opinions and all the facts so that you can understand the facts regarding the issue.

It also provides evidence from studies throughout the article to show that this is not just a load of bullocks.
Cameron's comment, May 20, 2013 3:06 AM
The main message in this article is the safe sex message in schools needs to be changed to combine the promotion of condoms and emergency contraception in the same programme because it did not increase risky sexual behavior in the students.
Cameron's comment, May 20, 2013 3:09 AM
This method is obviously effective because in our class at school we get taught about emergency contraceptives and condoms in class

Alcohol and Teenagers

Most people start drinking alcohol in their teens. It's a rite of passage to adulthood, but also carries health risks. Alcohol is a social lubricant, but it's also a toxin that the body works hard at to expel.

Cameron's comment, May 20, 2013 3:43 AM
This is a great article that states the facts about young drinking. Some of the facts include Youthful 'immature' organs can literally be poisoned by alcohol.

-The liver can be damaged. It takes a few days for it to recover and to get back to normal functioning after a 'session'.
-The heart can beat so irregularly that it can stop.
-The body can lose temperature causing hypothermia. Every year some teens die when they get drunk and pass out in the freezing cold.
-One of the most common ways in which teens (and adults) die from alcohol is by choking on their own vomit. If you vomit when you are unconscious you can easily breath it in. If your body cannot get the oxygen it needs brain damage or death results.

The message that this article sends is quite important and it is the explaining of risks associated with specific professions especially surgeons.
