Sexually transmitted diseases are rapidly getting higher & higher. There are more risk of getting them, especially for younger generations. It shows that the younger people are being transmitted with diseases quite a bit more than older.

Australian researchers have the strongest evidence yet that cannabis is to blame for mental health problems and further drug abuse in heavy users. A study by National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre shows teenagers who smoke marijuana daily are seven times more likely to attempt suicide, and eight times more likely to use other illicit drugs in later life.

Alarming increase in number of HIV cases

Alarming increase in number of HIV cases | Lina's year 9 journal | Scoop.it
Alarming increase in number of HIV cases...

 

This article is about the alarming rise in the number of people in Australia who have been diagnosed with HIV. First of all to really understand this article you must understand what HIV is and also what causes this virus.

 

For starters HIV is the human immunodeficience virus which means it's a virus that attacks your immune system and weakens it over a period of time. HIV is contracted usually through having unprotected penetrative sexual intercourse with someone who has HIV. The HIV virus works by actually attaching itself to the antibodies created by the body destroy it and  causing the antibodies to actually create more of the HIV virus. Inevitably the HIV virus slowly deteriorates the immune system trying to fight the virus which makes it easier for the body to contract other diseases.Such as pneumonia,koposi's,sarcoma and AIDS.

 

The main purpose of this article is to outline the current situation of the HIV virus and also the course of action the government is going to take to lower this increasing rate of diagnosis. According to thhe article 24,000 to 25,000 Australians live with diagnosed HIV and up to 10,000 people have HIV that hasn't been diagnosed yet. One theory put forward to explain the increase of people diagnosed with HIV is there has been an increase in umprotected sex  between gay men and aslo the fact that one third of the gay men are having sexual intercourse with a casual partner. However this statistic can't explain the complete rise in the number of people diagnosed with HIV as the homosexual  population is minute compared to the heterosexual population.

 

The government at the moment to curb down HIV is looking towards rapid HIV testing which only takes one hour to retrieve the results and also to approve new antiretroviral drugs .In addition the government is also planning on  lifting  some restrictions on medicine  foe those suffering  early stages of the virus.

 

This article affects teenagers as it gives a new perspective onto sexual decision making. This article is quite effective since it provides teenagers both homosexual and heterosexual with the right information about the dangers of not only having unprotected sex but also having unprotected sex with a casual partner. The moral I believe in this article is only to have unprotected sex with someone you have been in a relationship with for some time and prior to having unprotected sex having a check-up at the sexual health clinic to know if either of the persons involved in the relationship has as STI.

 

This article relates to the topic of sexual decision making and also about sexually transmitted infections which my year 9 PDHPE class learnt in term 3.


Via Teja Cherukuri
linasteinke's insight:

This article is about how HIV diagnosis in the past year to 8 percent and 10 percent in the past 10 years. In Victoria experienced the biggest increase but in NSW more people were being picked up with HIV that they contracted from someone only recently, as opposed to being picked up after the condition had progressed.

Paige Gervaise's curator insight, November 18, 2013 6:28 PM

HIV can be prevented by a good relationship with your partner and strong communication. The use of contraception can help prevent the  transferration of HIV to you or your partner.

Dangerous under-age drinking on rise

Dangerous under-age drinking on rise | Lina's year 9 journal | Scoop.it

This article shows that under-age drinking in Australia is a major problem. Stats in this article give the best explaination for this point, As 66.3% of 16 year olds said that "It's ok to get drunk occasionally" and 43.3 % of them also said that " One of the main reason's they drink is to get drunk". If this is the case there are going to be many worrying signs in the future concerning under-age drinking


Via Zac M Mclaren
linasteinke's insight:

This article describes that children under the age of 18 are getting drunk and on some occasions would get so drunk that they need to call an ambulance, I think that this article tells people that Australian teenagers under 18 years of age actually want to get drunk and think that it's ok when actually are damaging their bodies from healing if you are injured and also going to get dementia when they are older.
