'Lifestyle' diseases the world's biggest killer

'Lifestyle' diseases the world's biggest killer | Alice Fox's Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it
The World Health Organisation says lifestyle diseases are now the leading cause of death around the world.
Alice Fox's insight:

This article is about the global crisis of the impact of lifestyle diseases. According to this article lifestyle diseases have become much more apparent in second and third world countries. I think this is because of the introduction of fast food chains in recent years, resulting in more food for cheaper. 

The article also talks about the impacts of lifestyle diseases; all these impacts can result in premature death. This would have been because of the high cholesterol in blood vessels because of a poor diet or smoking. 

I find this article to be reliable as it is on the ABC website, which is seen as a reliable source. This article also has quotes from a doctor about these diseases.

Unlike many articles about teenage drinking this is actually positive. From the ages of 12- 17 teenage drinking has decreased. The article also consists of an interview with Todd Harper- the Chief Executive of Cancer Council of Victoria, who helped conduct the survey.

This article explains to parents what they should know about teenage binge drinking. Provides interesting information. Parents should read this and should talk to their children, if teenagers about the dangers of teenage binge drinking. It also providesinformation about why teenagers binge drink.

thomas chadrawy1's curator insight, May 20, 2013 8:49 AM

although this article seems to be based in america, due to the reference of 911, it is a valuable source of information. it is mainly targeted at parents who's children are of the teenage years. it looks at what binge drinking is, the causes and what can happen if you are caught in a situation directly influenced by binge drinking.

 

i believe if all of society, especially the generations coming up to the legal drinking age, posses even this basic information regarding alcohol consumption, the problems withink society that are a result of binge drinking can be minimalized, as they will be able to make informed desicions in the future. 

Alex Lavalle's curator insight, May 21, 2013 2:47 AM

The definition of binge drinking is having 5 or more drinks in a sitting. In this article is gives reasons as to why teenagers binge drink and what some of the effects of drinking are. Alcohol can lead you to making bad decisions which may result to death.

this article is a news paper article about youth drinking age getting lower and lower and how something should be done about it.This is relivant to our topic because we have talked about binge drinking. this article is a good article and i agree that something needs to be done to stop young people being in hospital due alcohol related problems. 

Louis Parsons-O'Malley's curator insight, May 24, 2013 7:23 AM

This made me think about the mentality of underage binge drinkers. They have a sense of invincibilty and they think drinking won't have any major effects, this may be true in some cases but only in the short-term. In 20 years they will be seeing the worst of the effects when their body can't deal with diseases( mental and physical) because they have damaged their body.

Underage drinking has become increasingly popular among high ...

Underage drinking has become increasingly popular among high ... | Alice Fox's Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it

Underage drinking has become increasingly popular among high school and college students, and so have theWhat a Mayo Clinic study published on Feb. 15 found interesting were the costs stemming from incidents involving alcohol abuse. Based on the Nationwide Inpatient Sample database, the study found that the hospitalization costs from annual incidences of alcohol use disorder (AUD) between the ages of 15 and 20 was estimated at $755 million in 2008.
The CDC names alcohol as the “most commonly used and abused drug among youth in the United States.”
The results from the 2009 Youth Risk Behavior Survey given to high school students showed that during the past 30 days:
• 42% drank some amount of alcohol
• 24% binge drank
• 10% drove after drinking alcohol
• 28% rode with a driver that had been drinking alcohol
The numbers and data not only reflect the high school population of mostly minors but also show statistics on students in colleges or universities.
The Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality released an article on Feb. 7 that focused more specifically on underage adult cases. Polled data from the SAMHSA Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS) gave insight into information collected on approximately 374,000 cases of substance abuse treatments in 2009 in people aged 18 to 24. According to TEDS, about 12,00 of those admitted for treatment were college or postsecondary school students.In the case of alcohol abuse, the data showed that people admitted between the ages mentioned above were more likely to be college students than non-students. College students accounted for 46.6 percent of alcohol abuse cases for people aged 18 to 24 while non-students accounted for 30.6 percent.
As studies continue to release statistics and data about underage drinking, researchers still look for the reasons why high school and college students continue to drink heavily although underage. Amanda Luccarelli, a sophomore at Marist College, said college students especially drink to relive stress that comes from keeping up good grades and attaining degrees that would help get secure jobs in a now difficult job market.“That factor placed on all of the stresses of grades and the reality of leaving college with a degree and a debt they had never fully calculated causes many college students to over drink and get themselves in trouble,” Luccarelli said.
Shannon Casey, a sophomore at Ohio State University, said the increase in underage drinking in the current generation of college students is unsettling.“I think it says that we are a little less responsible than previous generations,” Casey said. Casey said that while she recognizes the faults in her colleagues and fellow students, some parents or legal drinkers can be responsible for providing alcohol to minors. “It is against the law to obtain alcohol,” she said. “The underage drinker cannot be solely blamed for this since someone older provided help.” Boston University sophomore James Curtis said that students are irresponsible in their drinking habits and use it to escape the stresses of everyday life. “This is also the first time that students have real freedom from their parents and they feel like they can do whatever they like,” Curtis said.
Curtis also said that, while it is wrong for parents to become enablers of underage drinking, “Almost all kids will drink when they are underage, and if parents don’t allow that or pretend it isn’t happening, it doesn’t help the situation.”Post to FacebookPost to TwitterAdd to LinkedInAdd to Google BookmarksPost to DeliciousPost to StumbleUponAdd to RedditPost to Digg costs of care for underage drinkers who go too far.

Oscar Stanis's curator insight, April 26, 2013 2:02 AM

All people are influenced by advertising but i think teens are more because we believe what we see and we want to fit in so we watch the ques around us so we can do that advertisers are resonsible for there product not how it is used, so most companies will turn a blind eye on the problem

thomas chadrawy1's curator insight, May 20, 2013 8:40 AM

It is advertising like this and the portrayal of alcohol consumption in this manner that is most dangerous to the generations that are coming through. The advertisements that were mention in the article were said to portray young people drinking or gathering up large quantities of alcohol, the promotion of excessive drinking and alcohol-fuelled parties. Also the ads were shown in the afternoon with an audience of all ages.


If ads and the depiction of alcohol in this manner can be restricted to the audience that it directly affects, and can be shown in a responsible manner, without the added connotations and implications that are normally associated with alcohol, i believe it will be invaluable to society in order to halt the irresponsible and reckless drinking habits which have been developed in recent years. 


Joel Roberts's curator insight, May 20, 2013 7:58 PM

This article "Liquorland shamed over reckless drinking ads (Aus) -video" talks about how people get ideas and follow ideas from advertisments so if we get the wrong idea from adds the teenagers may think this is the only way they can drink alchol and the only way to react to alchol.
