This article tells us that schools are going to bring in a new "weigh in school" program. This article shocks me and i dont believe it to be nescessary that children should be weighed at school. This would not help the children it will shock them and embrass them so much they may end up with self confidence issues and even worse they maybe more vulnerable to mental health issues. I think that these programs should not happen but education is rather the better option to follow.

This article talks about how some see anorexia and bulimia as the only way to stay slim and have the body they desire. This article is a real eye opening as so many young Australians dont know the serious consequences that eating disorders can lead to. This article definitely shows a need to increase education on this issue.

This article talks about Lady Gaga's body image campaign. It shares hers story of how she struggled with her body image while she was younger. her story is quite inspiration. Lady Gaga hopes to inspire her fans to love their bodies and treat them right. I love this idea of how a celebrity is endorsing such a needed program and i hope it is a huge success!

This article talks about the myths surrounding breast cancer. It is a good article as it provides ways to reduce the risk of breast cancer however the author of this article does get a bit harsh towards the end which does create a lot of bias.

This articles is about 26 year old educator running a program called YEAH, which raising awareness and teaches young Australians about contraception STI's. This is a great way to teach people without the awkwardness of having an older person talk to you. This is a great program which will hopefully decrease the STI rates in Australia.

This article is stating the point of how important sex education is. As the article says STI's are increasing amongst young people. It talks about a new contraceptive on the rise- The male contraceptive pill. This is a very interesting article and read however it does talk about a TV show too much in it.

This article shows some great statistics about teenage drunk drinking, for example; 11% of teenage drivers have admitted to have driven a car under the heavy influence of alcohol in the past 30 days. Another statistic shows that 30% of teenagers were in a car with a drunk driver in the past 30 days. I find these statistics very shocking, these people are not only putting themselves in danger put everyone else who has to share the road.

This article poses an very interesting point about how having the "ideal" body is a woman only issue, when its not. The article talks about how men are also affected by body image issues, and how they would go to dangerous extremes to get the body they desire. I have never really thought about men having these issues and it is very interesting and provides a new perspective for me.

This article show horrific statistics about young women using abortion as a form of contraception. It tells us the story of the 21 year old, who in the past 3 years has had 5 abortion. Not liking and being allergic to other contraception has led abortion to the only solution. Abortion is still such a touchy subject and this article gives a young woman's approach to abortion which is quite interesting.

I believe that this is a great idea so teenagers know the facts and consequents of their actions.

This article is about how movies influence teenagers to binge drink. There are findings to suggest that even teens that havent engaged in in consumer alcohol have been tempted to binge drink. I actually believe that this could be true. From movies i have watched i can understand why this could be true. However the article does state more research needs to be conducted.
