Impacts of the Flu Vaccination Do you get your yearly flu shot? Well you may want to after knowing that the flu kills more Americans than any other vaccine preventable disease. It’s a virus mostly caused by influenza A and B, but can be spread through people, animals, and objects. Ever since the invention of the flu vaccine, only 5-20% of Americans catch the flu every year, way less than before it was invented when 40 million people were dying from it. That’s why the flu vaccination is such an important biological discovery and has had a positive social and economic impact on America.
China’s policy was expected to help lower the population rate by it has increased drastically since the policy was created. By using Document A and B we can see how, the One-Child policy has affected China’s population. Accordingly, to Document A China had a concern in their population growth because throughout 1960-1980 there was a population increase of 350,000,000. China’s Policy started in the 1980’s but since then their population has not lowered at all. It increased from about 1,000,000,000 to about 1,400,000,000 since the policy was created.
Maternal mortality is a health indicator that shows the wide gaps between rich and poor, both between and within countries. Developing countries account for 99% of annual maternal deaths in the world. Women in Afghanistan have a lifetime risk of maternal death of 1 in 11, while a woman in Ireland has a risk of 1 in 17 800. Tuberculosis is a disease of poverty. Around 95% of TB deaths are in the developing world.
During the twentieth century, gov- ernments started adding iodine to salt in areas where more than 1 in 20 school- children had enlarged thyroids.² Tragically, however, around a third of the world’s population – some 2 billion people – still do not get enough iodine, including some of those living in mountainous regions of South East Asia, Latin America and Cen- tral Africa.⁸,⁹ Despite our detailed understanding of the thyroid’s importance, these people remain at risk of serious and usually preventable health problems. Even in the UK some of us do not get enough iodine. One recent paper noted that unlike almost every other developed country, no national surveys have monitored iodine status in the UK since the 1940s.¹⁰ Despite this lack of evidence, many doc- tors believe that people in the UK receive enough iodine in their diet. New research now challenges this complacency. For example, two-thirds of women in the UK seem to be iodine deficient during pregnancy.¹⁰ Tragically, even mild iodine defi- ciency can leave a baby with a low IQ or can undermine school performance.¹⁰,¹¹ This may imply that many other people may also be deficient in this essential
Have you ever seen the effects that poverty can cause, the brains that it destroys through mental health issues or bodies it infects through physical ailments? I am writing to you to inform you of the problems that many people in society suffer from, the effects of poverty. In a novel I have recently studied call ‘The Inner Circle’ by Gary Crew he highlights this issue in the main two characters. This issue has spread all over the world and attack countries whether first, second or third-world. Global Issues has told us that at least 80% of humanity is living off less than $10 a day or that according to UNICEF 20,000 children die every day due to poverty.
Almost 2 million Americans per year develop hospital acquired infections, resulting in 99,000 deaths. Most of these infections are due to antibacterial-resistant pathogens because as mentioned earlier this is the ideal environment for these resistant bacteria to thrive. Two common hospital acquired infections alone (sepsis and pneumonia) killed nearly 50,000 Americans and cost the U.S. health care system more than $8 billion in just 2006
Smoking does not only affect your health but others around your health. “Secondhand smoke is a serious health hazard causing more than 41,000 deaths per year. It can cause or make worse a wide range of damaging health effects in children and adults, including lung cancer, respiratory infections, and asthma.” (American Lung Association, pg.1) What is secondhand smoke? Well, to begin with, it contains hundreds of chemicals known to be toxic, including formaldehyde, benzene, vinyl chloride, arsenic, ammonia and hydrogen cyanide. Secondhand smoke kills around 7,330 deaths from lung cancer and 39,950 deaths from heart disease each year.
