This commercial is very interesting. Everyone has always been told that coke is fun, coke is good, however this commercial is the complete opposite. This commercial tells people the truth about it all. How it is leading to obesity one of the biggest lifestyle diseases and how it plays a part in other health problems. I recommend watching it because it will show you a different side of the products we all love.

This website is the offical website for the cancer council. It promotes research and donations, it gives you the opportunity to donate and to learn about what the cancer council does for research, fund raising and hear about breakthroughs in treatments. 

You can read surviours stories, I thought that this part of the page was very inspirational and it makes you see the brighter side to cancer and to hear how positive they were is really inspirational. 

I thought that this was a good website because of all the sections and it really teaches you about not only the disease but the lifestyle that comes with it.

Whilst looking for articles to do with lifestyle diseases I really only saw obesity and diabetes- which are very big issues in Australia but I saw bipolar and I think that this is a disease that is often looked upon. It starts by defining what bipolar is which is very important because many teenagers do not know what it actually is. This article is very relavent towards teenagers because today depression is common in teenagers and bipolar can be closely linked. After defining what bipolar is, it gives symptons which is helpful because some teens may be able to relate to these symptons. It then mentions causes- though scientists have not exactly confirmed what they are other than running in families and alcohol abuse. It then talks about how lifestyle could increase the risk of bipolar- this can help a teenager change their habits to avoid bipolar. This article is very effective because it is different from all of the others and tells you who is at risk of bipolar.

Sleeping issues are so common in teenagers today and many people just accept it as normal. This article can help teens with sleeping problem and show how to prevent it. The articles audience is a parent, they are giving advice to them on how to help fix their teens sleeping patterns- this is still helpful for teenagers because it's the information that matters. It starts by relating to what most teenagers do- stay up late and want to sleep in late. It gives reasons for this and how puberty has affected their body clock. It gives statistics on how many hours on average most teens sleep which is surprisingly low compared to how much you should get. It then shows the risks of not enough sleep- usually you would think that not enough sleep would only make you tired, but this article shows differently. It shows how it can cause sleep deprivation, which can lead to bad results socially, educationally and work wise, but the part that scared me was when they mentioned how it can cause serious accidents. The article then gives all these ways on how you can help the issue of not enough sleep- which are very helpful. It then questions if it is something else like depression or medication- which can really make parents or teens to start thinking about whether there is anything else going on. This article is so effective because it mentions the risks of not enough sleep and how it can affect people, also how to stop it.

Sophia Whitton's curator insight, November 5, 2013 4:39 AM

This article is really informative about sleep-schedules for teens and how to help your child get a better nights sleep. 
As a teenager I can safely say that this information is true and these resolutions are actually really helpful.  If a teenager finds this helpful then I could probably say that as a parent this would be reassuring to hear that other teenagers suffer from similar situations as their child.
Seeing as this problem is so common in teenagers, we are starting to accept it as normal but I think that when teenagers stop sleeping as much it has a massive effect on other parts of their lives such as energy for school, weight, brain function and mental health.

Body image issues lead to depression, drug use in teen boys: study

Body image issues lead to depression, drug use in teen boys: study | Semester 2 - PDHPE | Scoop.it
Eating disorders are most often associated with young women, but a new study suggests young men can also become obsessed with their appearance and go to extremes to enhance their bodies.

The website states that "Eating disorders are most often associated with girls, but adolescent boys and young men also develop body image issues - with effects ranging from drug and supplement use to binge drinking, write researchers in the journal JAMA Pediatrics". Body images is a big issue in our society today and effects everyone either a lot or a little.

This webpage is a campaign to raise funds and awareness for HIV/ AIDS testing in third world countries.  I felt that this webpage was a great influence to other campaigners as what he will do is rowing from place to place and create awareness in well developed countries. 

The reason I choice it was because he is an insipration and he is raising awareness for a disease that isn't that well know or cared about as it is not common in well developed countries.

This article tells me about the increase in use of the contraceptive pill in the UK. I think it has become more popular recently because it is more convenient, easier and just all around a lot less hassle. I also think it has a good side because it gives the daughter and parent/s a stronger relationship and prompts young girls to have more responsibility. Although it is quite distressing to see that girls under the age of 15 are having to use the contraceptive pill.

This article on mental health and how little attention it's getting is really good because it is finally acknowledging how much we need to keep our minds open to those with mental illnesses. 
There is a section in the article which talks about how some psychology institutes try to fix those with mental health issues by plying them with antidepressants and little therapy. I believe that both methods can work but it depends on the person, illness and context. For example if someone with a busy work schedule or lifestyle  has a condition in which it would help to exercise and eat healthily, those two instances obviously clash. 
Hopefully this article can be spread around more and people can realise that it is a serious issue in our world.
