This translates to a rate of 2.25 children per 100,000 children in the general population and an average of nearly five children dying every day from abuse or neglect”. (www.childwarefare.gov) Human Rights Watch shares that “the real risks that children face are quite different: government statistics indicate that most sexual abuse of children are committed by family members or trusted authority figures, and by someone who has not previously been convicted of a sex offense.”(www.hrw.org) Consequently, when evaluating the evidence that is present it is safe to say, that despite all of the efforts that are put forth every day to protect our youth, some people still have the potential to prey on those whom cannot defend themselves. The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 has afforded the public with ammunition to fire back at those who prey on the vulnerable. Therefore, the foundation has been laid, for the public to build upon and grow with the knowledge that we are able to obtain to keep our children safe. Furthermore, we cannot solely rely on law enforcement, and others to keep our children safe we have to be proactive within the
Vaccination coverage has been expanding for some decades, and the experiment for creating new vaccines have been conducted yet. There are approximately more than 60 kinds of vaccinations, and they can prevent 25 infectious diseases. The vaccination is advertised an effective way to develop immune system, so the people who are not over 18 years old are recommended to inoculate 15 kinds of vaccines to enhance own immunity. On the other hand, serious side effects caused by vaccinations became a social issue a couple years ago. Some people who are vaccinated reported side effects such as body convulsion, joint pain, and fever, it results that people have a question for the necessity of vaccination.
After the first dose it is 80-85% successful. As a result, there are only few cases of diphtheria and less than 50 cases of tetanus in the United States every year compared to the thousands of cases in other parts of the world. Despite this the effectiveness of this vaccine, becomes weaker over time and so another boost is needed at 3 years old. In addition, the Tdap vaccine is also recommended in adolescences and adults. 2.4 What are some side effects of the DTaP vaccine?
No amounts of training or the proper safety equipment can stop injuries to the head and neck area of these athletes(“Our”). New studies suggest that more than 90% of athletes get injured at some point in their career. Of those, 54% say that they have played through an injury. Additionally, 37% have sustained joint sprains and 12% have reported concussions, although many go unreported for the fear of resentment from coaches and other players. In 2012, 163,670 student-athletes ranging from middle through high school, were seen in emergency rooms for concussions.
Most childhood vaccines are 90% to 99% effective in preventing disease” (“Vaccine Safety” para 2). It seems as if people dwell on the negative numbers they hear about vaccines when in reality there contains a large amount of research proving how effective and safe vaccines transpire. People refuse vaccinations not only for themselves but for their children as well. In the long run children get the short end of the stick.
As a response, American schools had received funding under then Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act to prevent youth violence. Accordingly, violence prevention programs and mental health services for children have risen substantially, as well as the number of attending patients. As a result, the Bureau of Justice Statistics School Safety Report shows that victimization of minors in America has been steadily decreasing, albeit it has spiked recently. According to the report, the total victimization rate inside school declined 82 percent between 1992 and 2014, from 181 victimizations per 1000 students in 1992 to 33 victimizations per 1000 students in 2014. In 1992-1993, there were around 4.2 million victimizations but only 1.2 million in 2010-2011.
“Roughly 300 million people visited the nearly 400 amusement parks in the United States in 2011, taking about 1.7 billion rides, according to the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. The chance of being seriously injured at a park is about one in 24 million, association officials say, far less likely than being injured in a car accident or struck by lightning.” But The Times notes that a 2013 study by the Center for Injury Research and Policy at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus “revealed evidence of frequent injuries among children. More than 93,000 children under 18 were treated in emergency rooms for amusement-park-related injuries between 1990 and 2010.” Researchers were unable to compile amusement-park-related deaths, but “they estimated that a child is hospitalized once every three days in the summer from an injury related to a park, carnival, fair or arcade ride,” the story notes.

According to the information used in the article, tanning beds account approximately 400,000 cases of skin cancer in the United States each year, with 6,000 cases of melanoma. When the federal government collected data on tanning among high school students only since 2009, they were surprised because teens who use tanning beds do it a lot, about 10 times per year. High school girls said that they would rather visit tan salons than lay out on
(Mayo Clinic Staff) Today the life expectancy for someone with cystic fibrosis is their 40’s. Which is a massive improvement considering 50 years ago, people with this only survived through elementary school. Although many people who suffer with this disease are now able to live out their dreams, have careers, and families, there is still no
An astonishing 50% of drugs involving adolescents are either used, bought, or sold at their school(Monitoring the Future). This startling statistic proves to many parents and adults how difficult it is to protect any child from drugs. Half of all adolescents access these harmful drugs such as marijuana, heroin, nicotine, and flavored pods to add to their vaping pens at school. Over 48% of twelfth graders, 34% percent of tenth graders, and a little over 17% of eighth graders are using any type of illicit drug. Though the number of adolescents using heroin has dropped in the past year by .10%, the percent of adolescents using crack cocaine has gone up .30% since 2015 (Monitoring the Future Vol.
People of all ages can get it and a significant sign of diagnosing the condition is experiencing two or more seizures in a 24 hour period (“The Epilepsies” 2016). Although there is no cure for epilepsy, the condition can be controlled with anticonvulsants drugs. I personally have prior knowledge to the condition from my AP Biology class. I immediately thought of my senior year of high school, when I first was taught about epilepsy.My friend Nadine showed us a documentary which showed a old man who would suddenly fall out of consicouness during his daily tasks; I remember this documentary very well because it was a scary sight for me to
