This article is about a study of smoking and use of oral contraceptives are linked to an increased cardiovascular disease risk in adults, but it may also apply to teenage girls. After research has found these symptoms related to cancer people should start to raise awareness as to why it is so important to get a clear message and help educate teenagers especially whilst still in school about the risk factors. The message of using these substances can be very harmful, for this reason, this article should be read by everyone to raise awareness.

Teenage Brains Are Malleable And Vulnerable, Researchers Say

Teenage Brains Are Malleable And Vulnerable, Researchers Say | Eloise's PDHPE binge drinking + other topics | Scoop.it

Adolescent brains have gotten a bad rap, according to neuroscientists.

 

It's true that teenage brains can be impulsive, scientists reported at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in New Orleans. But adolescent brains are also vulnerable, dynamic and highly responsive to positive feedback, they say.

 

"The teen brain isn't broken," says Jay Giedd, a child psychiatry researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health. He says the rapid changes occurring in the brains of teenagers make these years "a time of enormous opportunity."

 

Part of the bad rap has come from studies suggesting that adolescent brains are "wired" to engage in risky behavior such as drug use or unsafe sex, says BJ Casey of Weill Cornell Medical College.

Eloise Cochrane's insight:

according to this article, teenage/adolescent minds are "vulnerable" and that we are pretty much wired to participate in such risky behaviour. This warns the audience without telling them not to do this risky behaviours about the serious risks of them. they use shocking facts about the human brain to achieve this.

Claire Rogers's curator insight, November 25, 2014 10:06 PM

The teenage brain still is not fully functioned, it is still functioning and drugs are not helping. Teenagers taking drugs can cause major brain damage because the brain is not full adapting to it.  Drugs is one of the biggest killers and it is killing millions of teenagers each year for drug over dose. Teenagers should not take drugs there is no reason to and neither should adults.

Eloise Cochrane's insight:

This article is a nifty slogan that was thought up by by the teen leaders in the Youth Coalition for Alcohol Education, which includes students from six high public and private high schools in the Fayette County, America. The slogan is "we don't sell to minors, thank you for not buying for minors. This is a short and sweet way of saying that it IS against the law to buy for minors and it IS wrong. they are planning to put this slogan on 'window clings' in shops. Once again this is an American article but i personally thought that it was good they were making those around them aware.

this article is basically a description/caption of the video that is displayed at the top of the page. the video is a news report on the increasing amount of teen drinkers. It includes several percentages/facts of the amount of teen drinkers. It also has an interview with an (american) town sherrif who wants to get the community involved. Although this article is American i think that it does apply to the rest of the western world (not the facts of course) and we must learn from it.
