Nathan Troiani's insight:

This article talks about how only 14 percent of teenagers are eating a balanced diet and how the other 86 percent did not engage in enough activity for it to have a healthy benefit. Health professionals were alarmed as this means this unhealthy diet is not good for the teenage heart. As the health professionals stated it as a "chronic disease time bomb". This relates to what we are doing in class as we are looking at how to stay in control of our body and this include having a healthy and balanced diet. I agree with what it says in the article as if us as teenagers don't change this life expectancy will go down and more teenagers in the future and now will have a higher chance of a heart disease.

However this problem is not because of how the body works but on how everywhere we look the ideal body image is shown. For example mannequins in stores, models in ads and posters, etc. I agree with what the article says as I don't think teenagers should be worrying about what they look like.

Overweight teenagers run risk of liver disease

Overweight teenagers run risk of liver disease | Year 9 Articles | Scoop.it
Australian teenagers are becoming so overweight they are doing the type of damage to their livers that would normally be seen in older alcoholics, researchers have found.
Nathan Troiani's insight:

This article talks about how overweight teenagers have the chance of liver disease (fatty liver disease). This disease is in 13 percent of 17 year-olds in Australia. They also ran the test on 1170 healthy Australians and only 3 percent had the disease (although the 3 percent where having alcohol in large quantities). The researchers also came to the conclusion that if teenagers dob't change their lifestyle by the time they are in their 30s to 40s they will have the disease. This relates to what we are doing in class as we are looking at staying in control not just of your actions but also in control of your body. I agree with the concluding statement in this article as if this lifestyle gets passed onto the next generation we will have this reoccurring disease that will be affecting 13 percent of teenagers and probably more in the future if we don't change it.
