They face the greatest long-term health risks for getting pregnant so young.
Oscar Stanis's insight:

This article was about teen pregnancies. It said that most of the births were beyond the girls control because of sexual violence or coersion. Teens acount for 2 million of under 14 births our of the 7 million under 18 births. When a teenager is still growing up she needs support and cant manage to give the right amount of attention to a baby. The girl loses options for study and employment thus making her life harder. It reminds me of the girls in Pakistan who have to marry by 12 with no choice. Adulthood comes soon enough. Teenagers should enjoy age appropriate fun.

Oscar Stanis's insight:

This article was good because it is people taking action not just sitting back and sayng poor me. These people are trying to do something about a real problem. I like that the whole family was involved not just the cancer victims. It would be encouraging for the victims to see so many people walking for their benefit and of course the money would be helpful for research to find a cure. Often it takes a really big crisis in your life to be shaken out of complacency. It takes courage to act but the action is empowering.

Don't blame women's drinking for rape - CNN

Don't blame women's drinking for rape
CNN
The conclusion that these articles draw from studies and health professionals show just how far we have not come in understanding the inextricable link between power, violence, misogyny and rape culture.
Oscar Stanis's insight:

This article is about rape and whether girls who drink excessively bring on this violence. I lik e the example about leaving the keys in the car because more often people dont take responsibility for their actions. I think girls do make themselves vulnerable when they lose sanity because of alcohol but this does not excuse a male taking advantage of the situation. I think it is slightly animalistic and barbaric for males to show power in this way, They  have taken the difference between humans and animals and crushed it..

Should colleges be liable when binge drinking leads to rape?
Washington Post (blog)
Recently cyberspace erupted into the feminist equivalent of a civil war over the connection between binge drinking and sexual assault.
Oscar Stanis's insight:

If college is the continuation of school then they should be able to enforce safe drinking regulations. The students being of drinking age makes it difficult for the college to do so but standards need to be set for people to live up to them. In public alcohol cannot be served to anyone who has already had too much so why cant colleges enforce similar expectation? I think it is also about your social group and how you spend your time together and if they really do have your back.

Oscar Stanis's insight:

This article is about teenage boys overdosing on drugs because of muscle development. Much attention has been given to females but males are equally as obsessed with their body image.  The drugs they take often leads to depression and health risks. Any obsession in our life in unhealthy, God calls us to have a healthy body and mind and healthy spirit. Its nice to look good but its more important about who you are.

Teenage girls are at a higher risk of health problems from passive smoking than boys

Teenage girls are at a higher risk of health problems from passive smoking than boys | Oscars Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it
Researchers from the University of Western Australia found that when teenage girls are exposed to second-hand smoke at home, they have lower levels of 'good' cholesterol that reduces heart disease risk.
Oscar Stanis's insight:

This is interesting because most of the smokers that i know are female i wonder if they know that it could have serious effects on their cholesterol. Its bad enough that teens are exposed to second hand smoke and seeing their parents smoke as well isnt teaching good habbits, i think there is need for a big big change

Cinnamon challenge causes health problems for Michigan teen
ABC 57 News
MICHIGAN -- It may look tempting to take the "cinnamon challenge" but a Michigan teen says she is proof it can create serious health problems.
Oscar Stanis's insight:

Truth or dare has been played for years and internet callenges make it all the more easier to put challenges up on the internet so people can do them and teens being teens do them without regard to their health. People always take challenges too far like planking people do it at a stupid place at a stupid time. People dont stop to think, they think it is safe because everyone is doing it.

Oscar Stanis's insight:

This article is a reminder to all of us that what we do in our childhood stays with us the rest of our life., such as a healthy lifestyle, UV protection, drinking, drugs and other health hazards. Most people live for today and find it hard to think about the future because it is so far away it cant affect them now which might be true but it is the long term affect that counts. This is also true of what we put into our minds and the people we choose to be friends with. The choices we make now impact the future.

Video: Dungannon teen's tackle mental health in film
Tyrone Times
'DON'T suffer in silence' is the message that two Dungannon teenagers who have battled mental health problems in the past want to get across to other young people.
Oscar Stanis's insight:

This video confronted me with statistics of one in  six people will suffer from depression or  anxiety. It also said that one in four will have a mental problem in their life at some point. This was rather shocking when i read it, It means that anyone in my year or the whole school or anyone i know could have a problem and i dont even know. This is sobering and reminds me of the world i live in with all the bad and good parts. Im going to try and be more empathic when people dont seem themselves I will care enough to ask if they are alright. It shows how important it is not to bully because you dont know whats going through the others head.

Addiction: From genes to drugs
Medical Xpress
Obesity is clearly a major public health problem in the United States too, he added, much of it caused by food addiction.
Oscar Stanis's insight:

This article shocked me about how easy it was for an addiction to start. It also made me realise how many people dont know what they are getting into just because they got one good sensation out of the one drug doesnt mean it will carry through to all the other drugs which might not be good for them. They might have a reaction from the other drugs they are on and kill them quite quickly. I was also surpised that gambling had such a big mental impact as all the other drugs. The Bible says the body is a temple to the lord so we should be careful what we put into it and how we use it.

Teenagers attacking parents: new study maps 'hidden problem'
HealthCanal.com
Oxford University researchers have conducted the first academic study into the hidden problem of adolescent to parent violence in the UK.
Oscar Stanis's insight:

I found this article interesting because i rage and break things but never at my parents. Its interesting that the parents feel shame and blame when its the childeren who are to blame, I think this is because they raised the child and so they must think they have done a bad job. I know someone who was on drugs then went to his parents home and vandalised it as well as being violent towards his parents. This problem comes back to substance abuse. Should teenager be able to be charged with domestic violence? should parents report their kids?   I think yes and yes the childeren are now old enough to accept responsibility for their actions because arent we always asking for independence?

Oscar Stanis's insight:

This article is about mental and physical health in nonheterosexual females. The study was done with 16 to 19 year olds, This is an age where conformity is really important to the teens. People who are part of minority groups find acceptance much harder to acheive so they will deal with thier pain of being isolated in their own way. Some may choose substance abuse. I think this study would be interesting in women over thirty who are more comfortable in their skin. Its easy to target minority groups without realising what you are doing to their mental health.

Oscar Stanis's insight:

I agree that teens know the risks but are still willing to use alcohol or smoke. They do this to give them status in their teen society. To a teen if they get found when they're drinking, there is no regret that they are drinking, just regret that they have been found out which may stop them being able to drink. There would be regret if there was a terrible accident but generally teens don't connect future problems with todays actions.

Liquorland shamed over reckless drinking ads (Aus) -video

Liquorland shamed over reckless drinking ads (Aus) -video | Oscars Year 9 Journal | Scoop.it
Liquorland has been found in breach of a voluntary code of practice in its TV advertising, with the chain's ads accused of encouraging binge drinking, underage drinking and portraying an improper link between alcohol and sport.

Via ReGenUC
Oscar Stanis's insight:

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

Alice Fox's curator insight, May 16, 2013 5:09 AM

This article about an ad that was shown on Australian commerical TV that encouraged binge drinking for teenagers. It also included the mixed sport and binge drinking together, which many young people are involed in.

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.

EMERGENCY doctors are calling for drastic new measures to end the nation's binge drinking problem, including shaming boozed-up patients with embarrassing video of their behaviour in hospitals.

Via ReGenUC
Oscar Stanis's insight:

This might be a good idea but it wont stop people because they arent aware of what they have done and even if they see it they probabally arent too worried about other peoples opinoins because they got so drunk they are in hospital, facebook and other types of social media have shamed people for ages and we have learnt not to care. In a teenager the brain isnt developed and dont get the ques that an adult gets to say stop drinking
