Aydin Serefli's insight:

This article is about, alcohol, and how it killed 3 million people worldwide in a year. WHO study finds that alcohol claims more lives annually than AIDS, tuberclosis, and violence combined. The article realtes to what we have done in class, because we have seen videos about alcohol and the effect of it, to people. We have also completed worksheets, and mind maps. I feel upset because so many people have died, but it is there fault that they had an excess of alcohol.I agree with the article, and the government should do something about it. This is nonsense!

Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Aydin Serefli's insight:

This article is about sexually transmitted diseases, and how easily you can catch it. You can get a sexually transmitted disease by having sex with someone who has the infection. The causes of sexually transmitted diseases are bacteria, parasites, and viruses. There are so many types of STD's like HPV, HIV/AIDS, Herpes, Chlamydia,Syphilis, and Gonorrhoea. Most of these diseases effect both men  and women but in many health cases it affects a pregnant women. It can serious health health problems for the baby if the lady that is pregnant has a sexually infected disease. If you catch an STD by bacteria or parasites your local doctor can treat it with antibiotics or other medicines, but if you have an STD by a virus there is no cure.

Correct usage of contraceptions like condoms can prevent these  sexually transmitted diseases, but does not completely eliminate the risk of catching or spreading STD's.

This article relates to what we have done in class, because we have done worksheets and mind maps on the board about STD's, and we have done a lot of work on chlamydia and different types of contraceptions and there effectiveness like condoms, and morning after pills.

I am happy about his article because now i am more aware in the future when i do engage in sexual intercourse i will be mindful about these STD's, and the consequences you have to face without wearing any contraceptions. I do agree of what the article is saying to me because it is true information and useful for me in the future.

Internet Safety for Teens | Education.com | Aydin's Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it
Internet safety for teens is a topic to know before your child reaches the teen years. Learn what behaviors and demographics affect Internet safety for teens.
Aydin Serefli's insight:

This article talks about internet safety for teens and the behaviours and demographics affect on teens.While online, teens may be persuaded to do things or share private information. Recent testimony on child protection alerted the public to online sexual solicitation of teens. However parents are not aware of cyber bullying which is a huge dilemma on social media sites like Facebook and twitter. Cyber bullying can leave a detrimental effect on the teen and can affect them with school and other problems. Parents have to be aware what there teen clicks or watches online, because people can track you down very easily these days with all this technology. For example on Facebook, if there us a flashing box in capital letters that says YOU HAVE WON 100 MILLION DOLLARS, don't click on it. It can lead to viruses and people can hack your private information. Here are some statistics showing frequent use of internet off the website the article came from.

30% of teen girls who used the Internet frequently had been sexually harassed while they were in a chat room. 37% of teens  received links to sexually explicit content online.30% of teens have talked about meeting someone they met online. 19% knew a friend who was harassed or asked about sex online by a stranger.33% of teen girls and 18% of teen boys had been asked about sexual topics online

In class we have learnt about internet safety by doing sheets, and past experiences, and listening to others. We have watched click-views too on the smart board. I feel very angry about this issue because teenagers need to be smart on the net, and think before they post and what they click on.The article makes me feel happy because teenagers can learn about the consequences if they make one mistake on the internet. I agree with the article that teens need to be safer online, and think of the consequences before they make there move.

Aydin Serefli's insight:

This article is about lifestyle diseases and how it is the worlds biggest killer. The world health organisation says the rise in lifestyle diseases, can be blamed on tobacco use , poor diet and the harmful use of alcohol. Lifestyle diseases are very common and they include skin cancer, lung cancer, cardiovascular disease and many more. This articles relates to what we did in class, because we spent a lot of time working through the booklets about lifestyle diseases and many click-views. We also learnt the bad effects of lifestyle diseases. I feel upset about his article, because it shows that Australians are dying from these terrible diseases, for these stupid mistakes. I strongly agree of what this article is saying because smoking, and alcohol consumption can cause serious diseases which can lead to death, and the world health organisation is right we need to start taking care of ourselves and others around you.

HIV/AIDS

HIV/AIDS is a disease that affects the human immune system. AIDS is the final stage of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. If an HIV positive person is left untreated, his/her condition deteriorates into full-blown AIDS where the immune system stops working. Thus the immune system is unable to protect the person from diseases or infections. The virus can be transmitted from an HIV positive person through the exchange of body fluids. This can happen through sexual contact, blood transfusion, needles or from a mother to child during pregnancy. Though there is no cure yet, antiretroviral treatment has proven to be very effective.
Aydin Serefli's insight:

This article is about HIV/Aids. HIV is a disease that affects the human immune system. In class we have completed questions on HIV/AIDS, and the affect it can have on the immune system. I agree with what it says in this article, in how people should get checked even if you think you dont have it, you can never be sure.

About Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) | Aydin's Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it
You've probably heard lots of discouraging news about sexually transmitted diseases. The good news is that STDs can be prevented. Find out how to protect yourself.
Aydin Serefli's insight:

This article is about sexually transmitted diseases. So far we have been learning about contraceptives and how teenagers and adults can get STI's. We have done worksheets and have watched documentaries. We have also had a class discussion about contraceptives. I do agree that contraceptives should be worn during sex if you are not married yet. But if you are married you really don't need to wear contraceptives.

Australia has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world and the rate continues to increase alarmingly, research to be presented to the annual meeting of the Australasian College of Dermatologists in Brisbane on Monday says.
Aydin Serefli's insight:

This article is about skin cancer and, how it continues to rise in Australia. It is a very common lifestyle disease. Australia has the highest incidence of skin cancer in the world, and it continues to increase. The rate of skin cancer in Australia is 4 times greater than Britain, the USA and Canada. Skin cancer occurs when you are out in the sun, and if you are not wearing sunscreen melanoma can get into your bloodstream, and cause cancer. Over 750,000 Australians are treated for skin cancer each year, thats over 2000 people every day. In 2011 around 2100 people died from skin cancer. Many middle aged people suffer from skin cancer.

Tis article relates to what we have done in class, because we have done worksheets on skin cancer like how it is cause, and the effects of it, and how it continues to rise.  we have also learnt how to minimise the risk of getting skin cancer with 5 easy steps: Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, and Slide

I feel very upset when i  read this article, because skin cancer is not decreasing in Australia it is increasing, at a very fast rate. 

I agree with this article that Australians need to keep cautious of our skin, and whenever you go to the beach always put on a hat and sunscreen to prevent this awful lifestyle disease.

Obesity - Better Health Channel

Obesity - Better Health Channel | Aydin's Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it
Obesity increases the risk of many diseases. Adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater are classified as obese, but different measures are used for children and teenagers. Chronic conditions and diseases associated with obesity include diabetes, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, stroke, some cancers and sleep apnoea.
Aydin Serefli's insight:

This article is about a lifestyle disease called obesity. Obesity increases the risk of many diseases like high blood pressure, stroke, insulin resistance, and cancers like breast cancer. A range of factors can cause obesity, like for example: eating more kilojoules than you have to, inactivity, genes, socioecomic factors, and changes in the food supply.

For Australian children, there has been an increase in the proportion of 5-17 year olds who were overweight or obese since 1995, with 25.7% of children overweight or obese in 2011-12. 

In class we have completed worksheets and questions about obesity and the factors that lead up to obesity. We have also had class discussions about the disease in class. I feel about  very scare and frightened about this article because now i know the consequences of not exercising, and not eating well, because it can lead up to many worse diseases in life. I strongly agree with this article because i think people should take care of themselves and exercise and eat well on a daily basis. Everyone wants to have a healthy life.
