Angus Pryde's insight:

This article talks about China's ban on smoking in public places and the worry of lack of public understanding about the dangers of smoking in a country of 300 million smokers, it also goes onto talk about how lifestyle diseases are the biggest killer in developed countries and that developing countries are catching up or leaping ahead. Then throughout the rest of the article , it talks about the reasons of the increase in lifestyle diseases in developing and developed countries.

 

This is a nice change, because usaully, I'm only reading about developed countries like America, England and Australia, but to read what impacts and similarities developing countries are suffering was surprising to hear.

Teenage Pregnancy in Australia | Australia

Teenage Pregnancy in Australia | Australia | Year 9 PDHPE (Angus Pryde) | Scoop.it
Find out about the Australian attitude to teenagers' health and pregnancy...
Angus Pryde's insight:

While this article maybe short but it gives encouragement for all teenage girls to finish their education and get through school/studies before even considering becoming pregnant and starting a family. It also talks about the abortion law and the different definitions it can have in different states and territories, like the need for a legal guardian for under 16's or 18's. There are also helplines for family planning and pregancy Australia, if young girls need any support.

 

This article is not so helpful to me, but to teenage girls of Australia by encouraging them to finish studies and if they do get pregnant consider abortion an option.

On the beat to battle teen drinking | Year 9 PDHPE (Angus Pryde) | Scoop.it
The children watch warily as the police car moves slowly through Tuggeranong's town centre, slowly melting from the road and the prying eyes of the officers.
Angus Pryde's insight:

this article talks about an suburb in Canberra  that has been invovled with teenage drinking, kids are on the street drinking their troubles away. To me this is terrible, why are children as young as I are drinking their problems

 

 I was happy to hear that the Intervention Pilot program has been helping teenagers about their drinking problem since 2010 and that 10% of the teenagers put through the program have gone even further to help themsleves by seeing psychologists and longer term interventions.

Calling time on teenage booze abuse

Calling time on teenage booze abuse | Year 9 PDHPE (Angus Pryde) | Scoop.it
The growing number of underage children and teenagers drinking excessive quantities of alcohol is becoming a scourge on our society.
Angus Pryde's insight:

this article is about the growing numbers of excessive underage drinkers and the people who give alcohol to minors. I was suprised to see that 13% of teenage deaths were from excessive drinking and that 1 teenager dies from excessive drinking. But what surprised me the most, was that the people supplying the alcohol to minors, were the parents of the minors. I was glad to read though, that Sandra Jones and her team at Wollongong Uni were giving the funding to end underage drinking

NEWS BRIEFING: Tackling lifestyle diseases – the role of unhealthy industries – AusSMC - Australian Science Media Centre

The Australian Science Media Centre (AusSMC) is an independent, non-profit service for the news media, giving journalists direct access to evidence-based science & expertise.
Angus Pryde's insight:

This article talks about how communicable diseases related deaths have been reduced through vacenations and treatments. It also talks about how some of the biggest causes of ill health is through lifestyle diseases. It talks about the success that western countries have had with curbing this situation.

 

I'm starting to see a lot of articles talk and think like this, while it does get a bit dull and boring seeing the same old stuff, but it's nice to see the different perspectives and facts that each article likes to give.

Male contraceptive pill on the horizon

Male contraceptive pill on the horizon | Year 9 PDHPE (Angus Pryde) | Scoop.it
A CONTRACEPTIVE pill for men may finally be on the horizon, after scientists reported promising results from a chemical that appears to allow a reversible suppression of sperm production in mice without reducing the animals' sex drive.
Angus Pryde's insight:

This article talks about the new testing of Male contractive pills. Throughout the article it takes about the length of the effects of the drug and the testing of this new type of contreception. But towards the end says it would take years for this drug to be develop and produced for everyday use.

I believe that this can be a major break throw in the contrecption and sexual intercourse world, if females don't feel comfortable taking the female contreception pill, their male partner can be more than welcome to take his own.

Angus Pryde's insight:

i know that we had watched this video before in class, but watching it again still gave me the same impact. I can see how much teenagers are influenced by their own parents, but the way they are influenced is just on the wrong path.

 

I see people drinking alcohol as an occasion not as a drink yourslef till your down fest like society does today, this video to me is what society today sees drinking as, and how what they are doing are influencing the teenagers of today.

Under-age drinking OK, says half of Australia

Under-age drinking OK, says half of Australia | Year 9 PDHPE (Angus Pryde) | Scoop.it
Half of Australian adults say 15 to 17-year-olds should be allowed to drink alcohol at home, despite official guidelines warning against it.
Angus Pryde's insight:

According to THE AGE NATIONAL that half of Australia says ok to 15-17 year olds drinking at home. I couldn't beleive that half of Australia were supporting this, we Austrlains have been taught and shown over many years of why we shouldn't drink under the lawful age, yet people say the a-ok. 

 

This article talks about surveys towards adults, statistics and facts about under-age drinking. People think it's ok for people my age to be drinking at home and I didn't find that ok, if anything we should follow the U.S's example of having the lawful drinking age at 21.

My opnion on this article is that it gives a good understanding of how much teenagers as a percentage are drinking. I'm was shocked to hear that the percentage of teenage drinking form the ages of 16-17 was 23% and 6% for kids around my age, but was happy to see the percentages drop down quite a lot.
