Media Influence - Bad Influence of Media on Children

Media Influence - Bad Influence of Media on Children | Laura's Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it

As kids we grow up learning good from evil. With the help of the media we are able to make out what we think is right when it's really wrong. We think other teenagers are having sexual relationships and that using drugs and drinking is okay because you don't always get caught. But that's not always true. The media reflects society's evil and puts it on shows for us to see. Even though it's not the real aspect of the story.


Via Lana Lee
Laura Gibbons's insight:

This article is about how the media effects how we acted in a varity of ways. When we where little kids books, movies, television and the internet bin fluenced how we saw things. nut now as teenages we think that because the teenagers do things like take drug and underage drink on movies and television and don't get caught we think its ok for us to do the same.

Dallas Thompson's curator insight, December 15, 2013 11:57 PM

This article appeals to those who don't understand what smoking around someone can do to their health. When people smoke and get addicted to different drugs they don't take into account that they are not only hurting themselves, but they are also hurting those around them. Those who are more easily affected may be their own children. When people have children and they choose to smoke or use drugs, they are faced with answering the question, "Is this drug really more important than being a good parent or even a good friend?" Secondhand smoke is just as dangerous as smoking straight from the stick. Smokers need to realize it's not just about them. This article demonstrates the affects a smoker can have on their loved ones.

Mutations linked to breast cancer treatment resistance

Mutations linked to breast cancer treatment resistance | Laura's Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it

"Researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center have identified a type of mutation that develops after breast cancer patients take anti-estrogen therapies. The mutations explain one reason why patients often become resistant to this therapy.

The discovery stems from a program at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center called Mi-ONCOSEQ in which patients with advanced cancer have their DNA and RNA sequenced to identify all types of genetic mutations that could play a role in the cancer. Researchers use the findings to help direct therapies they think will work best. But they also use the data to find new genetic links. The detailed analysis means that researchers can identify anomalies among a small number of patients.

In this case, they looked at 11 patients with metastatic breast cancer that was classified as estrogen receptor positive, meaning the cancer is influenced by the hormone estrogen. This is the most common type of breast cancer.

The analysis found that six patients had mutations in the estrogen receptor. All of them had been treated with an aromatase inhibitor, a type of drug that blocks estrogen production"
