Blood test hope for skin cancer

Blood test hope for skin cancer | Christian's year 9 journal | Scoop.it
A simple blood test could be used to identify patients whose skin cancer has spread, according to a presentation at the National Cancer Research Institute conference.
Christian Kyriakou's insight:

This article informs us that a simple blood test could be used to identify patients whose skin cancer has spread. By using a blood test, we have the basis of a simple and accurate way of discovering how advanced the disease is, as well as an early warning sign of whether it has started to spread. More than eight in 10 people now survive melanoma for at least 10 years, but experts say there is still more to be done for patients whose cancer has spread to other organs.

New alcohol-free zone in Barrack Heights

New alcohol-free zone in Barrack Heights | Christian's year 9 journal | Scoop.it
A new alcohol-free zone has come into force at Barrack Heights to combat public drinking.
Christian Kyriakou's insight:

Alcohol free zones are a great way to reduce unruly behaviours and even to decrease crime in areas such as Barrack Heights as mentioned in the article. Residents are entitled to feel safe in their own homes and not to be intimidated by drunken people who become abusive and sometimes violent due to alcohol abuse. It is obvious that all residents agree to the alcohol free zone since no objection was recorded by the council.

Byron booze crackdown to curb violence

Byron booze crackdown to curb violence | Christian's year 9 journal | Scoop.it
Byron Bay will undertake a six-month trial of tougher alcohol restrictions in a bid to curb unprecedented levels of drunken violence in the beachside town.
Christian Kyriakou's insight:

Byron Bay is a popular destination for tourists especially young people celebrating schoolies. During these celebrations it is common to see drunken and unruly behaviour. I strongly believe that placing tough restrictions on the sale and use of alcohol will help reduce the violence associated with alcohol abuse. These restrictions will work very well as Newcastle had similar restrictions which proved very successful as after-dark assaults had dropped by 37 per cent and emergency department admission fell by 26 per cent. Underage drinking is also a huge problem, these restrictions will make it more difficult for these young people abusing alcohol. These actions should also be introduced to other parts of Australia.

Alcohol companies marketing to teens: expert

Alcohol companies marketing to teens: expert | Christian's year 9 journal | Scoop.it
Alcohol producers have bypassed restrictions on advertising in Australian media by targeting young people directly online, a Wollongong-based health expert warned yesterday.
Christian Kyriakou's insight:

I personally think that the marketing and advertising of alcohol should by regulated and have heavy restrictions especially online. As tobacco companies are restricted to plain packaging, alcohol companies should not be permitted to market their products as fashionable and trendy. Young people are easily persuaded  to buy trendy alcoholic drinks because they think it it is cool. The marketing of alcohol should be closly monitered so that it is not shown to children or teenagers and there should be heavy restrictions on online advertising.
