P = problems with unhealthy eating behaviors

B = benefits of a healthy diet

S = suggestions for healthy eating 

 

P= it can be hard to eat right on the go. Especially for teenager because not many know how to cook or know a lot about nutrition. Also, most teenagers have a rally busy life so it is hard for them to try and eat healthy when they have all these different activities going on. Good nutrition is importnt for kids and everyone else too. Amy Fanjoy says that people forget that teens are growing especially boys. She is a registered dietian. Teens need all the nutrients of growing kids. She also says that eating on the run is not ideal for anyone. 

 

 

 S= You should always eat breakfeast. It's needed to start your day. When you have breakfeast you should be eating a certain amount of protein, carbs, and healthy fat. Protein can be milk or yougurt. Sandwiches are ok if you have to ride a bus. Lunch- sandwiches are alright but people should be using whole grain bread not white bread. use a lean meat and cheese. add lettuce or spinach. try not use mayo that much because it is very fattening. You can use alternates like mustard or hummus. Veggies are very important too. Add raw veggies when packing lunches or snacks like, carrots, celery,sugar snap peas or broccoli. Drinks- You should be drinking more water than consuming a lot of sugar by drinking a soda. Juices are not that heathy either they are not as nutrious as fruit and have sugars in them as well. Kids should have milk for calcium and vitamin d for bone health. Don't drink flavored waters. Avoid energy drinks or caffinated drinks because its affects your sleep and brain function. Atheletes should drink sports drinks like gatorade when its warm weather. Snacks- light before game or practice . After working out you should drink chocolate milk as recovery drink. Dinner- try homemade foods sit down dinners are the best where you can talk about your day.

D = dangers of concussions

G = guidelines for students to return to activities

S = suggestions for solving the problem of concussions 

 

G= Doctors think that you should go back to sports after having a concussion slow. Right when you can go back you can start by walking and then slow jogging. Aslong as you don't have any concussion symptiomys then you can return to more active things. AFter a rest period doctors think activity is good for you. It might take awhile for kids to go back to their full potiental in activites. 

 

S= Local schools have started to make students take tests like the IMPACT test, this test provides a baseline on students nmental performance. After a concussion or injury the test is handed out again and the results are juxtaposed. 

 

D= Kids to teens face more danger because their brains are still developing. To the end of the teenage years brain cells are adding insulation also known as myelination which helps transmit signals and strenghtens the brain connectivity. the brain is more easily damaged before it is fully insulated. Younger kids are liable to more damage because their necks are not very strong and there heades are bigger. This causes more movement with impact which can cause injury to the brain. 

 

 D= Certain symptoms of concussions are : trouble with memory, attention oir learning, sleep problems, head pain, depression or sucidal thoughts.

During this study, the woomen experieced 405 hard attacks. but women who ate the most berries hd a 32% reduced risk of having a heart attack. this was compared to the womean who ate berries for one month or less. Women hwo ate berries ended up being healtheir than the ones who didnt. they broke down the diet and found that the people who ate more berries had a lower risk of having a heart attack than the others who ate more fruits but not as many berries. The berries have high levels of antocyanins and and other flavonoids. these fight effects of stress and damage to the cells. keep heart vessels more elastic and flexible.

High school athletes found more vulnerable to concussions

High school athletes found more vulnerable to concussions | School - Martha Donnelly | Scoop.it
High school athletes are more at risk of concussions than their collegiate counterparts, a study finds.
Martha Donnelly's insight:

http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/31/health/athletes-concussions/index.html?iref=allsearch

 

D = dangers of concussions

G = guidelines for students to return to activities

S = suggestions for solving the problem of concussions

 

 

D= A study from National Academy of Sciences syas that high school atheletes are at risk for concussions.  This study found that if you don't report your concussions or kind of blow them over then you could be harming the atheletes more. High school atheletes that play football, lacrosse, soccer, and baseball have  a higher risk to get a concussion than college atheletes. High school football players were twice as likely to have concussions then college ones according to the National Electronic Injury Survelliance System. But according to Dr. Robert Graham they only have numbers, not good data. Graham said "We don't know if there is an actual increase of concussion in yoinger player or if high school players are more willing to report that they are having the symptoms". The report also said that girls playing basketball and soccer are more likely to have concussions then boys. Womens ice hockey has the highest rate of concussion. After having one concussion a player is likely to have another one. 

 

S= Helmets and equipment have a little effect on the risk of concussions and there was barely any scientific evidence to support claims that the gear improves safety. 49 states have concussion laws on books, but Graham syas the laws are not enough to deal wiht the issue. The state lawas are all different. they have different reporting requirements. They are not really enforced.
