Vaccinations should be required by law in all public schools because they are effective, they are safe, and they protect Americans from easily preventable deaths and diseases. 26 states in the U.S are below the government mark of 95% coverage for the MMR vaccine. That’s too many states. These diseases that people are still dying from are avoidable and preventable. There is no reason why on average 5,000 people die each year from Hepatitis B. Or why 40,000 people on average die from influenza each year just in the United States. Something needs to be done.
Can vaccines be both helpful and Hurtful? People usually say that vaccines help save lives and that they help us have a healthier community, but suppose all we are doing is actually injecting ourselves with a virus that eventually mutates into something incurable. A virus that can wipe us all out. Does this mean that by vaccinating ourselves we are actually helping to create a virus that could mutate into an incurable disease?
A staggering 750 Million (1 in 9) people lack clean water access. Over 10% of people lack one of the most basic human needs. People in third world countries often spend significant amounts of time collecting water, often walking many miles just for unclean water. Often this duty falls to women and children, which reduces their time able to work and attend school, leaving many women in these societies poor and uneducated. This unsafe water also causes deadly diseases.
Cassia is a dynamic character. Her archetype changes over the course of the story. In the beginning of the book, she is the archetypal the naif. This can be seen on page 218, where the author writes,“‘No,’ Caleb says. ‘They know they can’t. They know the Society couldn’t either. They just want the samples. Like insurance.’ ‘I don’t understand it,’ I say. ‘Someone like the Pilot should have seen enough death to know the tubes aren’t worth anything. Why would he waste resources doing something so stupid?’”
Ebola. Literally a world wide freak out. For a couple weeks, the only things students were talking about, the only thing discussed at the dinner table, and stories posted all throughout the internet, Ebola took this world and scared all of us. This epidemic outbreak is centralized in the area of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, all of which are neighboring countries in Africa. This epidemic spread like wildfire throughout African villages and killing anyone it came into contact with.
Everyone has heard about the latest fad, ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. On the ALS website, it explains that ALS stands for "Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body.
I will always remember Ebola as the virus that scared Americans much closer to death than catching the disease itself. The West African breakout showed to be a true epidemic and horrible life taker to those exposed to it. The reason I find this to be so interesting is because of American's reaction to it. At some point during the outbreak the media had scared most of us that we have some sort of chance of contracting it.
Ebola is a deadly disease that originated in Africa back around 1970’s. There are different strains of Ebola and some are more deadly than other. Recently people have been visiting south africa and coming to America not knowing they had the disease. Ebola was habitating in their bodies for weeks which is why they didn’t have any symptoms until after they arrived in America. Luckily, Ebola is not contagious when no symptoms aren’t present so the planes that they took were not infected.
Previously I have written about Ebola, but there is some recent news on Ebola lately. The Centers for Disease Control confirmed on Tuesday that a patient being treated at a Dallas hospital has tested positive for Ebola,which is the first case diagnosed in the United States. The patient came from Liberia, but had no symptoms when he departed. But four or five days later on the 24th of September, he began to develop symptoms. The top doctor treating the said, "The next steps are basically threefold.
According to a recent statement released by the CDC, Ebola is no longer occupying Nigeria and Senegal. The last recorded case in the area was August 31, and no new cases have been found since. That's good news for them, however, the disease is still rapidly spreading to west Africa. The CDC recorded that the cases of Ebola were doubling every 3 weeks. The organization also said that if no drastic matters are taken soon, the amount of affected people could rise to 1.4 million by January.
In my last discussion on Ebola, I talked about how the Ebola outbreak was working to be contained by the United States' support. In response to my last post, I did some more research on the outbreak of Ebola and the New York Times has reported that the Ebola outbreak in Nigeria may be contained according to the
This year, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the largest outbreak of the disease in history. Ebola Hemmorrhagic Fever is a fatal disease that causes a fever and internal bleeding. Ebola was first seen in 1976 in Sudan and Zaire with a mortality rate of 53%. Another outbreak then occurred a few months later and a third came about in 1989 in which monkeys had been affected. The last known outbreak occurred in 1994.
Since the outbreak of Ebola, and the streaming snip bits of information I've gathered from news videos and articles, I've had an underlying question: How do viruses like ebola pop up out of nowhere? This is not how Ebola spread as much as how the virus manifested and was able to reappear. This interested me because this has happened with many different viruses throughout history. I found that Ebola is usually traceable to a single source where a human interacted with a carcass of a gorilla, chimp, or duiker (resembles a deer).
Prostitution should be illegal.If females want to be a prostitute then its their life and choice.Once I saw what prostitutes do on the streets then I was ashamed of what they are doing with their body’s.This should be illegal,but its not and no one cares about it.Some people think its okay for females to be prostitutes on the streets.I still think that prostitution should be illegal.
In the first stage of my research, I began exploring what first inspired me to choose the effects of music on Alzheimer's disease as my research topic. My interest in this subject began after I learned of a Sundance film called "Alive Inside". Dan Cohen, the director of this film, is also the founder of a Long Island non-profit, Music & Memory. Cohen's organization distributes iPod's to nursing homes to help patients with dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
I have previously read about large epidemics diminishing large populations. I wonder on how they are transmitted and how they caused culture to change. Do the epidemics come upon quickly or slowly? Do they last very long? Do they create better immunity in people and animals they affect? Do the diseases leave only the most robust of people to survive? How where cures found? Are there still cures that are needed? These questions I would like to answer because I am curious about them - knowing little of them as a result of living in “a well guarded country with cures for most diseases”.
Summer started on a sunday, everybody was at church in the neighborhood. It was a normal day, the weather was the same and the people thought everything was the same, but it wasn't. Mr.Roger was an ordinary man who lived in a little suburban house on the corner of 11111 st and Dinkerhilll avenue. He lived by himself because his wife had passed away shortly after his son, who died a very mysterious death unsolved by investigators. Though seeming to be the same normal person, he wasn't, this year everything changed.
It has been sixty four years since the president and the consortium identified love as a disease, and forty-three since the scientist perfected a cure. Everyone else in my family has had the procedure already. My older sister, Rachel, has been disease free for nine years now. She’s been safe from love for so long; she says she can’t even remember its symptoms. I’m scheduled to have my procedure in exactly ninety-five days, on September 3. My birthday.”(Page 1). Alright let this sink in a little bit. Okay . . . this takes place in a world that love is a disease, pretty basic.
The Death Cure is the last book of the Maze Runner Series. I have to say, the ending was really good, and really bad. I won’t tell you why or how because if I do, the thrill will be gone.
The entire series is just really great, I was engaged, and it really made me think about things. The book really saddened me at times, which I think is probably good because it’s actually good enough to make the reader really care about the characters and what’s happening. There are a lot of really emotional moments in this book.
What are the causes of breast cancer? this question has been around for a very long time and me as a young woman I feel the need to inform myself and others about the causes of breast cancer and some of the ways we can potentially prevent ourselves from getting breast cancer, or even help ourselves become a survivor. I wanted to use this topic mainly because I have two woman in my life who have suffered from this horrific disease. Also, as a girl I feel like I should know more about this disease and the causes of it.
In my book, "The Secret Garden" there is an outbreak of a disease called cholera. This disease killed many people, including her parents, and left her all by herself. She, however, wasn't terribly affected by this plague, because she was already used to always being alone. She one day was in her bedroom laying down on her bed when she heard a mam and a woman in her house. After talking to them and introducing herself, she found out that they were there to tell her that she was going to go to stay with her uncle, Archibald Cravens, in England.
“The Secret Garden” starts off in a small town and focuses on the story of a girl named Mary and her family. Mary was neglected as a child, and her mom didn’t give her much attention. In fact, Mary was bullied a lot as well. For example, she was called “Miss Mary quite contrary” by and friends and her classmates. Even her teachers said that she was so plain and boring compared to her mother who was such a beautiful woman. Mary became quiet and very vulnerable after these experiences, and she still is. Her mother even made her feel bad about herself and about who she is growing up into.
What is so important about the discovery of iPS stem cells?
The discovery of iPS cells is an incredible leap forward in the medical field. iPS cells have huge potential in drug testing and also the curing of certain diseases. The science has not yet caught up with researchers hopes, but it is well on its way. iPS cells have the potential to be the major disease fighting in the near future.
A tweet by @deborahbowman calling out the ‘unknowns’ of schizophrenia directed me to a New York Times editorial by a private practice psychiatrist about the failed approach many people are taking towards dealing with people who suffer from mental illness. Steinberg believes that our world today is more concerned with privacy and staying away from ‘labeling’ others than we are about protecting the regular citizens that have been harmed in an onslaught of school, movie theatre, and shopping mall shootings.
As I learn more and more about Schizophrenia, the reasons behind the disease seem to get broader. Suffering from any illness is a terrifying thing, but when the doctors have no idea why you, of all people have the illness- things get even more frightening.
As I read more and more about Schizophrenia, the causes and implications of the disease seem to get broader. Today I learned just how harmful the psychotropic drugs many Schizophrenics have to take can be on the body. As if living with the disorder isn't hard enough, researchers have confirmed that the use of anti-psychotic drugs has a direct correlation with newly diagnosed diabetes. They are known to significantly increase weight gain in patients, and this leads to various other health risks, such as MS, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease.
If asked to describe a schizophrenic individual, what words would you use? Crazy, mental, psycho? The truth is, millions of people suffer with this disorder, and it has many different stages, some worse than others.
HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. AIDS stand for acquired immune deficiency syndrome. HIV and AIDS are not curable at the moment even though scientists have been working on it since it has been found out. That makes it 29 years. So what is the best way to cure HIV/AIDS? The best way isn't to cure it (because it hasn't been found yet) but to prevent it. The absolute best way to prevent HIV/AIDS is to be abstinent. To be abstinent is to not have sexual intercourse at all. Another way to prevent HIV/ AIDS is to not share needles.
