Vaping as an adolescent can lead to health issues in the future. E-cigarette liquid still contains the chemical nicotine.
Dean-Mooney emphasizes the public agrees that “72 percent of adults think that lowering the drinking age would make alcohol more accessible to kids”(Dean-Mooney 3). Another claim of the author it that lowering the drinking age would put more responsibility on the parents and educators. Additionally, she claims that lowering the drinking age would have dangerous long- term effects. Early adolescent drinkers are, “more susceptible to alcoholism”(Dean-Mooney 10).

1.0 INTRODUCTION In the recent time increase in multiple drug resistance by microbial pathogens become a serious health problem to mankind worldwide. The increase has slowed down the development of new synthetic antimicrobials drugs and has necessitated the search for new antimicrobials from alternative source (Peng et al., 2006). It is aroused due to indiscriminate and repetitive use of antimicrobial drugs coupled with inadequate diseases treatment (Shariff, 2001). To acquire drug resistance microbes have developed series of mechanism to render drug useless for the treatment and control of infections (Ritch-Kro et al., 1996).One way to prevent antibiotic resistance is by using new compound which

This wildfire is further fueled by influential celebrities such as Jenny McCarthy and Donald Trump, that garner their mass followers to also adopt their beliefs.

This is evident with the recent measles outbreaks.
Many Americans blame loose gun laws as this problem, saying that it 's too easy to get your hands on a gun in today 's world. However, imposing stricter gun laws would only slow down the issue, not completely stop it. In more detail, it would be a fruitless attempt to solve rising violence in America. Mental health is at the root of this rising violence. Instead of focusing on imposing gun laws, America needs to focus on improving mental health in order to stop the rising violence.
Of course, it is impossible to weigh the lives lost in the Black Death against the benefits to humanity that it produced, even if we consider how many lives were spared due to these early medical advancements. Thus produces the difficulty of the precautionary principle, which is the underlying question: is it acceptable to risk lives in order to possibly save others and advance humanities’ progress? It is impossible to know how quickly medicine would have advanced without the occurrence of the Black Death. Perhaps
Smallpox was a strong disease that vastly killed thousands of people before its vaccination discovery, currently smallpox does not exist anymore because of the effective functionality of its vaccination.

Showing society how strong and deadly diseases attack people’s bodies, may change people’s beliefs of vaccines usage. Furthermore informing people about the benefits of immunization against infectious and noninfectious diseases will make people think twice before deciding not to vaccinate.

The number of people who choose not to immunize is steadily increasing, and has been on the rise since the 1980 's. Should children’s health be at risk for the greater good of community health? The news today is full of tragic stories about complications of vaccine use and there have been injuries from the beginning of vaccine use due to incomplete data on the side effects.
