According to the same Mayo Clinic article, some evidence indicates that other health factors such as type 2 diabetes, smoking, heart disease, and obesity might also put you at a higher risk for Alzheimer’s disease. Connective/Transition: Now that we’ve discussed some risk factors, let’s move onto the causes and effects
Because Fatima is limited by her income she finds it difficult to afford fresh food. Social status is another contributing factor to hypertension. Low socioeconomical status has been linked to high blood pressure in young adults. A recent study states”...lower SES (socioeconomical status) is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and that increased BMI and central obesity are important mediators of this effect(Brummett et al., 2011)” While being in lower SEC does not cause high blood pressure, studies like the one mentioned have concluded that patients in a lower SEC have increased risk behaviours that lead to hypertension such as poor diet, alcohol consumption, and delays in seeking treatment due to financial constraints. Improving SEC can be difficult.
Firstly, he discovered that suicide rates depend on one’s integration in society, in other words, the level in which one feels accepted and connected to a group (Durkheim, 1951). Similar to Joiner’s ‘thwarted belongingness’, Durkheim says that those with a higher integration and belongingness in society have lower suicide rates than those who do not as they may feel not wanted and excluded (ibid.). However, less common but just like Joiner’s ‘perceived burdensomeness’, Durkheim states that those with very high integration also have high suicide rates. Moral regulation also plays a role in why one CS, this is because Durkheim discovered that those without a religion are more likely to CS than those who are actively in one. This is also because in some religions like Christianity, suicide is a sin.
Annotated Bibliography Of Air Pollution in Saudi Arabia Research paper (Bhola, Luisa, & Ojha, 2010) in this book talks about Air Pollution Health and Environmental impacts. The introduction of Air pollution it is the biological materials are in the atmosphere that they may cause harm to human beings as well as to animals and the environment. Indoor air composition has a huge impact on our health and air quality of life. The rapid population growth as well as demanding for increased energy are the primary things that causes large amount of harmful materials pollutants and greenhouse gases to be released into the atmosphere, in doing so causing human health and the environmental consequences. Over the past few decades progress has
The difficulty they had in expressing their emotions prior to genetic testing contributed to a similar difficulty after they found out the result. Kaphingst A.K., Lachance R.C., Condit M.C., 2009 Analysis of the correlation between the beliefs about inheriting cancer and searching for information for own health and protective behaviors N = 5813 adults. CSM - adapting the model in the analysis Individuals who believed that information about genetic family history of cancer may reduce the risk of cancer were significantly more likely to be in search for cancer information. Heavy smokers who were convinced that genes were the main cause of lung cancer are significantly more likely to smoke
The name asthma comes from the Greek word azien, meaning breathing struggles. Asthma was discovered by a Greek physician Hippocrates, the first case of asthma was found in China in 2400 BC. Asthma is caused by many different things for instance, if you have a blood relative (parent or sibling) with asthma there is a chance you might have asthma due to genetics, many allergies cause you to have a higher chance of having asthma such as eczema and hay fever being overweight and smoking also increase your chances of getting asthma because of severe breathing problems and lung pollution even if you don’t smoke secondhand smoking where you inhale smoke because you are often near someone smoking can lead to lung pollution which is a factor of asthma. Many hairsprays and pesticides contain chemicals which if inhaled can fill the lungs with dangerous fumes and toxins and lead to asthma. Cold air is another major factor in asthma because the lungs bulge and contract harder in cold air and over 80% of people with asthma say that when they exercise in the cold air it leads to asthma attacks.
Another study was done in China, the result shows regular beer drinkers had a 20 percent increased risk of bowel cancer when compared with non-drinkers or occasional drinkers (Department of Colorectal Surgery at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 2015). Both studies show that no matter western or Chinese diet, drinking alcohol is one of the major reasons that cause bowel cancer. We can prevent suffer from bowel cancer by avoid or limit our alcohol consumption. The government should increase alcohol taxes since it is the most cost-effective way to reduce alcohol consumption and the resulting harms, particularly among young
They can also become more irritable. They can have poor health and rate of mortality also increases. A study on the sleep-deprived elder women revealed that they have less adverse health effects as compared to younger women. This means according to this study, greater age can be a positive factor as it leads to resistance to the health impacts of night time working (Mn, 2013). The incidents of Fatigue in night shift nurses can be worsened in the night shift nurses that don’t have a holiday in a week and they don’t have a day off during a work.
The possible outcomes of this study is likely to support the hypothesis that promoting cancer awareness in China will lower the number of deaths as a result of cancer. The Chinese who belong in the lower levels of the social structure do not have access to the media. Hence, the only form of cancer awareness they have is through word of mouth. Even so, they will not fully understand the potential risks of having cancer, let alone know what they should do if one has cancer. The Chinese in the upper class may not even be aware that China is facing a cancer crisis.
Even though there is less nicotine, it does not mean that it is not addictive. It is also very easy to get nicotine poisoning from e-cigarettes. The juice containers contain nicotine, so if the liquid is directly ingested or exposed to the skin, then it gives a high chance of nicotine poisoning to the user. E-cigarettes were originally made to help get off of smoking by giving less nicotine and possibly lowering the health risks, although that is not certain yet. “To be useful for smoking cessation, she explained, a device would need to consistently deliver enough nicotine to enable the smoker to fend off withdrawal symptoms but not so much that the wish to quit
Past research has focused on on the use of the SBIRT__________; however, did not review the association between the BAC level and the effective treatment interventions for patients to change their drinking behaviors, reducing re-hospitalization. Based on the review of literature, it can be hypothesized that the higher toxicology levels in patients receiving care in the STICU department at MCV will be associated with higher alcohol related intervention needs as suggested by the SBIRT. Additionally, we hypothesized that these results will vary by age, older patients screening higher on the SBIRT, than younger patients for more intensive interventions. In addition, a comparison review will look into the level of impairment in the patients who
Honesty: The evidence offered in support of any claim must be evaluated without self-deception. Is fire cupping just superstitious traditional chinese medicine or does it really have an affect to our body? As cupping is introduced and more accepted to the western society and culture, many people seek different therapies and alternative medicine to help with the pain in the body that one may be experiencing. One website called Big Feet also show the treatment prices for fire cupping which is $23.00 per 20 minutes which is almost a dollar per minute. Within Canada, Vancouver and Toronto where there are large population of chinese people, different websites in the vicinity of these clinics were examined by reviewing the different information that the customers and consumers can read.
To exemplify, I write “To exemplify, McElroy exploits that the public healthcare system offers more funding to females although males have a higher likelihood to death due to, as the American Journal of Public Health states, “social factors as an important contributing cause” (“Ending Male Bashing Would Improve Male/Female Relations”). It is unethical to withdraw medical help to a whole gender due to their social factors, especially when modern psychology has proven that males live five years less than females (Myers 154). Additionally, the funds aren’t even equivalent and males are not only victimized due to lower funds, but also the fact that their odds of death are higher and there is less being provided for them” (6). I evidently integrate Wendy McElroy’s statement on males receiving less healthcare and textbook evidence of males having shorter lives with my claim that males are victims to gender inequality. Integrating other ideas into my Argumentative Essay allows my argument to grow stronger because supporting ideas make an argument much more
It is important to recognize the possible negative impacts of widespread use on public health and safety so that effective regulatory policies can be written. Because the mental impairment caused by the drug THC is well known, it will be non-controversial to legislate against “driving while stoned” and use of marijuana while on the job. However, secondhand smoke presents another way for increased marijuana use to harm public health that may be less obvious to policy makers. (Matthew) Marijuana has several effects on the cardiovascular system. for example, smoking marijuana is associated with a dose-dependent increase in the resting heart rate of 20% to 100%.
As if these effects were not sufficient proof that Houston’s air pollution is a great public safety risk, in a study by Liu Suyang (2015), it was found that several PM2.5 components such as: ammonium, sulfate, and nitrate, are associated with increased mortality rates. According to the Citizens League for Environmental Action Now (CLEAN), “short-term health effects of ground-level ozone include reduced ability to breathe, inflammation of the lung tissue, irritation of the nose and throat, and damage to respiratory cells.” (2004). As was mentioned earlier, “long-term exposure to smog has been linked to an increased risk of cancer and even death (CLEAN, 2004). In the 2015 State of the Air Report by the American Lung Association, they provided a list of health issues and the number of Houston residents that suffer from said issues. The following graph has been taken from their 2015
