The article has interesting information as our generation or the world know more about sexually transmitted infections yet STI's rates are still rising. STI's are common in young people more as they are less inexperienced in that area and also other reasons. But this file gives reasons against those of young people to why you should be more careful and how. I believe this is a good file and more young people should know about how to stick up for their health an safety.
This site is a good warning to young people who are having sex (and older). But the most common ages to have or get STI's are 15 to 29. Basically this part of the site is telling you to be careful of people's excuses to not be safe. This is a good notice as most teens wouldn't be bothered or going on the lines of this wouldn't happen to me when in reality it could happen to you. The site is good to get across to teenagers and give information on the topic.
A recent study has shown that people with pale skin and red hair may be more prone to developing a deadly form of skin cancer regardless of whether they spend time in the sun or not. "We studies melanoma formation in 'redhead' mice and discovered that the pigment had an ability to promote melanoma formation, even in the absence of ultraviolet exposure" said David Fisher, cancer centre director at Massachusetts General Hospital.
I don't believe this article has any purpose. It does have good reasons and seems to have evidence suggested but it is pretty stupid. There might be something in pale skin people that can form into melanoma, I don't think the findings are stupid. It's how the article has presented it, even though pale skin has more of a chance anyone can get skin cancer. Doesn't matter who you are, all you can do is be careful.
This is a Discussion about whether obesity is a lifestyle or a disease. Different sorts of people catorgerise it as either one or the other, when in reality no one has the right answer. Docters and scientists say that the answer varies for each person. What Merriam-Webster suggests ineterests me, and it makes a good arguement. She says a disease is a 'condition of the living animal/plant, impairs normal functioning and as signs and symptons'. Obesity doesn't fit the dictionary's definition of a disease. Herndon (in the article) hoes on and gives good examples that have convinced me that obesity isn't a disease but a liefstyle of a person.
This article tells us that even parental supervision while drinking can lead to the teen having drinking problems. The research shows that teenagers supervised are going to have 'risky' drinking habits 4 times more likely than normal.
"They judge us upon age, and it’s not like that. I mean it’s not good for a 16-year old, 15-year old to have a baby at a young age ... But who sits here and says ‘I’m gonna get pregnant at 16?’ We all think, oh I’m gonna get married, or I’m gonna graduate first, go to college and then get married. And nothing ever turns out that way."
This article reveals that the 'reality' shows on teen pregnancy isnt reality at all. It isn't a pleasant experience & not everyone gets the happy ending that these tv shows says that happens. In fact more than not it is the complete opposite.
This article gives us good news about teen drinking & driving. Turns out adds, sterner parents & other stuff have helped to reduce teen drinking by quite a bit. Only 9 out of 10 high school aged choose to drive after a drink, bug improvement.
The article gives us information we need to know about teens & their families today. People are ignoring these types of things, hoping it actaully isnt happening when it is. Over 400 teens were taken off the streets (late at night) with alcohol & drugs in their hands. This is a problem need to be delt with as they're doing in Perth, all they need is help so we should be giving it to them.
Planned Parenthood has been providing trusted health care for nearly 100 years. Here are the answers to questions we hear about STDs.
Tessa Fergusson's insight:
This article gives good information on STI's. Most people refer to it as STD even though they mostly don't turn into diseases. The statistics of how many people get STI's are scary but the site gives information on how to be safe and details about getting checked. Also it has a 'check' which i believe is a good way to get people started on taking STI's seriously.
This is a good article as it tells you symptons that you might have with certain cancers. People should know about symptons more, this can detect cancers early which gives better chance of survival. Or people can have regular check ups, it shouldn't be scary as it can be beneficial for you.
Scientists are starting to make the first step to create a cream that will hopefully one day treat skin cancer. They have designed a new chemical that acts like a virus by killing off melanoma cells. This cream would treat melanoma in the early stages. I believe this is important as said in the article 11,000 new cases of melanoma are diagnosed each year in Australia. It is a easy way to cure a cancer, even though it will take a few years to create and test it I think it would be a success.
This article is saying that even older people can still get STI's, actually it seems to be increasing. Women over 40 seem to have more unprotected sex, which is now leading to be a bad idea. This tells us no matter what age you are, you can still get STI's.
This article is telling us about the fact that the rate of STI's in young people is on the rise and is at it a record high, even now.This article, although using Britian as an example applys to australia as well, as we have the same problems.
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.
This article is about how a growth in teenage pregnancys is sparking calls for better sex education in schools. It gives some reasons to why teenagers become pregnant and show the increase of this fact.
The article suggest that there should be a better sex education in school as teen pregnancy as increased a bit over the years. Studies have shown that most teens are having unprotected sex, which can lead to becoming pregnant. The idea is to get information out to all teens in all area's, not just in some places.
This article tells us about the effects of energy drinks mixed with alcohol drunken by teens. It tells not to believe the lies out there that says it isn't bad. These types of drinks are very bad for you, especially for teens which is the worst part as teens don't know about this.
This article says that teenagers these days are more exposed to alcohol which by the statics are shown to be true. Teenagers are more dependant and fill the need to fit in. All the information shows that it affects teenagers health.
