Childhood poverty leaves its mark on adult genetics - health - 26 October 2011 - New Scientist

Childhood poverty leaves its mark on adult genetics - health - 26 October 2011 - New Scientist | Poverty Assignment (Bong Shen yau) | Scoop.it

Shenyau Spamhi Bong's insight:

people from third world countries suffering from diseases such as malaria ,cancer, heart dieases.This diseases can be either caused by the impact of their childhood or from the hereditary  of their parents.As they come from not so developed countries,the medical there is not advanced.And what's more is that  most of the people come from poor families thus they are unable seek treatment even if they are suffering from such diseases or are unwell.So as they slowly develop into an adult,this symptoms of the disease would come haunting them.I feel that it is unfair for these kids. having to suffer from such disease since young is really a torture,yet are unable to get it with their own life.Most people knows that poverty are happening around the world but just the turn away when the issue arose we should help each other as much as possible and make this world a better place to live in

Tan Qi Shun's curator insight, January 31, 2013 7:38 AM

I do know that people living in a state of poverty most probably live a shorter life or more than often is down with severe dieseases.This article further elaborates on my point and it talks about how new-borns growing up in a poorer environment and state tend to end up in bad conditions. Tests and studies have shown that even when the genes are of similar qualities but when new borns live in a better and richer environment they tend to live longer and it is most probably because the parents are able to afford and seek medical treatments when in need of any. However the poor are unable to do anything about their illness, depriving them of a fighting chance. There is a large difference of the state of health between the rich and the poor, with the rich being able to handle health complications and the poor ending up helpless.After reading this article i feel very fortunate that every single Singaporean is blessed with the chance to meet their medical needs. I would like to challenge the point at which why the goverment of those various countries not implementing any programs to help the poor seek any medical attention. Do they not feel unfair for the poor when the rich is able to meet their while the poor is unable to?

In this article, it shows that there is a rising number of people suffering from diseases such as cancer, herat diseases and many more. This could be cause by the impact of their childhood life because in the article, it state that people who are poorer are more prone to diseases. Tests, studies, experiments have shown that richer people can live longer as they have the money to go or treatment unike poorer people. It is unfair for them to be suffering like that and for some cases, this problems started when they are young, the disease might "follow' thrm until they grow old and it is unfair to them. If only the richer people will lend a helping hand to them and less people will be suffering and this will let the other know that they are not alone and everyone including the rich one is willing to help them.

After reading this article, I learnt that more people who are born in poor countries are suffering from diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other diseases. These diseases are often from their heredity or since childhood. They come from poor countries, hence the medical development are not advanced. Even if their medical development is advanced, they might not have enough money to pay for their medical bills. I find it very unfair that people who are rich can afford to get expensive medical treatment from private hospitals while the poor cannot even get the most basic treatments from clinics.

Wan Ting Wong's curator insight, February 4, 2013 5:55 AM
From the video, i see that many people in some parts of asia are still living in poverty,
some are living in extreme poverty.Many are not able to afford clean water, food, education or medical facilities
. However this bank, the asian development bank (ADB) is trying their best to help
create job opportunities and education for everyone. Their target is to let everyone
living in poverty to have a better life by year 2020.I think that the ADB is tring their best, however is it possible
for this company to have enough money to support almost millions of people for food, education, water, health? I feel that
the company should give support to those who are in extreme poverty first, at least they would have lesser burden and not
live in extreme poverty. I wonder why the government is not doing anything to improve the lives of people whereas a bank
is? Should the government be forward looking and assume what is going to happen to the country if there is a rapid population
growth? Why is the bank willing to help?
Poon Ying Ying's curator insight, February 4, 2013 7:58 AM

From this video, we can tell that poverty has lessen a lot recently in Asia. However there are still people in some part of Asia that are suffering from extreme poverty. People are still not able to obtain clean water, food, shelter, clothes,education and health care. Over nine hundred million people are living in extreme poverty, eight hundred million have no access to electricity and each day, more than eleven thousand children die before reaching their fifth birthday. However the Asian Development Bank are trying their best to improve life for the people and allow them to break free from the life of poverty by the year of 2020. It is almost impossible to help all the people living in poverty to escape from their suffers but it is possible to improve life for the more poor people living in extreme poverty by providing them better food and drink. If everybody can contribute a little by helping, it would definitely mean a lot to them. I wonder if the rich have ever try to put themselves in the shoe of a poor and feel how they are suffering? It is so sad to have children to die before reaching five, they did not even get to experience, explore and learn many things in life. If people were to contribute in a little help, those kids might be able to live a little longer and better.

From the video, I can see that there is poverty in some parts of asia, some are living in extreme poverty.Most of them cannot even afford clean water, food, education or medical facilities .Meanwhile this bank, the asian development bank (ADB) is trying their best to help as much as possible to create job opportunities and education for everyone. Their target is to let everyone living in poverty to overcome poverty by year 2020.I really think the bank is doing a good job and think they should continue this.I think that the ADB is tring their best, however is it possible for this company to have enough money to support almost millions of people for food, education, water, health? Hence i feel that the bank should try to cater the people who are in extreme poverty first. They may need more help. I do not know why the goverment is not doing the job that the bank is doing. In fact the goverment should do more than what this bank is doing and take care of their people. The goverment should act quickly and respond as the population of the poor people may increase rapidly.

Shenyau Spamhi Bong's insight:

This us how water is important our life as clean water can help save life while unclean water is bad for health and cause dieases.Research have also shown that more than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, 99 percent, occur in third worlds country.[The water and sanitation] crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns.lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours.
