How To Tackle Obesity In Kids

Featured

The world is facing many serious problems and these tend to cause a new epidemic. One of these is global obesety. This is obesity that affects hundreds of millions of people around the world. While many people tend to think this is a Western or developed world problem, statistics indicate just as many people in the developing world seem to be facing this kind of problem as well and hence the term global obesity.  Many adults have been finding success in using a hormone present in pregnancy called hcg, as a form of weight loss support.

An obese individual is one who is morbidly overweight with a height to weight ratio that greatly surpasses recommended levels. To measure this, a person will have to visit the doctor’s office or other health care facility. Here, the medical health professionals will conduct some tests which will include a measure of their height, body weight, fat levels and other measures. The professionals will analyze the information and the information and then advice the patient on how to best approach the issue once it is confirmed the patient has the condition.

There are many different approaches to this problem. It basically arises from changes in people’s lifestyles and this includes diet and habits. In the olden days before global obesity became a problem like it is today, people were more active and ate healthy diets. Today, more and more kids and other people as well sit down a lot in front of the TV, video and computer games. These provide great opportunity for such people to simply sit down and not do much or engage in serious activity.

To prevent such situations, parents should provide their kids with healthy diets and allow them time to be active rather than just spend time on the couch watching TV and playing video games. Others also engage in processes such as eating healthy, having healthy snacks and also leading an active lifestyle.

Latest News From Across The Globe

148 world newsEarlier this month of December 2013, there is a deadly attack on Yemen’s Defense Ministry, ramming the building with an explosive-laden vehicle. It said that the vehicle was followed by gunmen who fought the security forces inside. The deadly attack aims to target the hospital at the Defense Ministry complex, in the Sanaa, Yemen. As reported by the Yemen’s state-run Saba News agency, the deadly attack killed at least 52 people in the capital. Out of the 52 killed are the four foreign doctors according to the Defense Ministry official. Died in the attack was also the relative of President Rabu Mansour Hadi. Nine militants and ten soldiers were also on the list of killed victims.

 

The attack had caused severe damage to the place that it took several hours for the security forces to take control of the building. Although there is no group that claimed the responsibility for the attack, some speculations pointed out the al Qaeda group. Yemen is considered to be the home of the al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and this group has been responsible for many terrorist attacks in different countries around the world and even the giant United States was no excuse. Another reason for the attack that analysts can see is the impoverished Middle Eastern nation who faces a growing separatist movement in the south and is usually wrecked by violence.

 

Another woman takes on the political power and leadership as the socialist Michelle Bachelet wins the presidential election in Chile this year. Michelle Bachelet became the country’s president from 2006 to 2010 and since the government of Chile unlike other democratic countries, allowed re election for the presidential position making Bachelet run for office for her second term. After her first term ended in the year 2010 she was tapped by the United Nations to be the head of U.N. Women, an agency of United Nations that is established to promote gender equality around the world. Bachelet has been an active member of United Nations and also active in social services. She won the 2013 presidential election with the 62.3 percent of the 93 percent counted votes while her opponent Evelyn Matthei garnered 37.7 percent of votes. On her congratulatory phone call she said that “I shall be a president for everyone in Chile”. Bachelet was also the first female president of Chile and ended her first term with high approval ratings, no wonder the people of Chile voted her office once again.

The Problems Of The World

081 world problemsThe people in the world, in order to keep the balance of life on Earth, are given problems and challenges that require effort and for the mind and body of the person to work in sync in order to make solutions and actions that can help us all be better off. While people all over the world fret on personal problems and obstacles that they are facing right now in their lives, leaders of countries on the different sides of the Earth are also worrying about problems that do not only concern them but also people who are greatly affected and can be greatly affected by these problems. Some problems may affect only other people now, but eventually, if not taken care of, might affect each person and living thing on Earth.

One of these world problems is pollution and other environmental issues. It is said that because of the wants and needs of people to modernized everything and make each person’s life easier and convenient, we give in exchange negative impacts to the environment. It becomes a trade-off. Everything has somehow had its price, it can be money or it can be anything else. The technological advances that we have now had not only make our work move in a faster and easier pace but it also did and will to our life span and to our environment that is supposed to be conserved for the next generations to use and taken care of. We need factories to make us the necessities that we need but they also emit carbon dioxide that is bad for our ozone layer. But what can we do, exploitation of the environment is the price that we pay for the convenience modernization is giving us. And we may have realized it now that we are paying real big royalties for what we used every day in our lives.

Calamities including typhoons, flash floods, and other natural disasters, are events that can bring distress and trouble to the lives of people.  It can ruin lives as well as their livelihoods. But did you know that these calamities are actually good to keep Earth in shape and its pieces be kept together? Flash floods are said to be good for the land. It keeps the soil of the Earth fertilized. Floods actually bring new nutrients to the soil making it even better to plant on. Earthquakes as well as volcanic eruptions prevent the Earth to blow its self-up. These should be welcomed by people because it can also be good for them, but with todays’ modernization, calamities are absolutely unwelcome, especially on urban areas. Calamities are actually good for the environment itself but definitely, bad for todays’ people and to their livelihoods.

Other than these environmental problems the whole world is facing, there are also a lot of problems that can be pretty persistent and hard to resolve. Poverty is one of these. Many countries and people around the world are experiencing this kind of problem. Along with poverty, some countries also experiences income disparities, where the lives of the rich is so far from the lives of the poor. There is so much inequality in the world that it is too unfortunate for people who have to suffer income disparity and poverty, while other people live luxuriously and are probably swimming in cash.

There plenty of problems that are faced now by different countries in the world. One’s effort is not enough to solve it altogether. The world needs more hands to work together in order to make the world a better place to live.

How To Fight Global Hunger

Are you aware that the world is suffering from a crisis called “global hunger”? We may not feel it if we live in a prosperous country or in the first world country, but in different parts of the world, hunger is one of the main problem that people suffer. Base on reports, every day many people die of hunger. There are many reasons why people are dying from hunger especially in country where the course of food is limited. Why do think that there are so many places in the world that are suffering from hunger? What are the causes of hunger?

119 global hungerThe very first cause of hunger is poverty. If you live in a community where the poverty is so high, you will be included to those people who barely eat in one day. There will be days that you won’t be able to eat anything. Our bodies need to eat for nutrition and energy. If we don’t get the nutrients that we need, we will become weak and sick. If our body is weak, it becomes vulnerable and will not be able to defend the body from deadly sickness like malnutrition. So, to help fight hunger, the solution is to solve poverty. Poverty need to be decreased. But how can you fight poverty? Sometimes poverty is not always caused by other people but in some point, poverty is cause from within. There are people who are really lazy. They would prefer to take advantage of other people to get gain than to work decently. So, these people need to be trained with skills and educate with right manners.

Aside from poverty, other cause of global hunger include: corrupt economic system or government, conflict between two nations, and climate change. You may live in a very productive country but if you leaders are corrupt, the problem in poverty will never be solved. The budget that was prepared for the project that will fight poverty will go to their bank accounts. So, poverty can also be caused by the leader that you place on his/her position. So, choose your leader wisely. Choose leader that would care more for your welfare than for his selfish desires. Next is the climate change. When there is a climate change, calamity strikes the area and crops and other source of food will be destroyed and it will result to hunger especially if the main means of living in that area is farming and cropping.

Hunger: The World’s Biggest Problem

185 global hungerWhat is happening to the world right now?  Are you even aware of the problems around you?

Global hunger had been our world’s biggest and oldest problem yet until now it remains to be unsolved.  The main reason why this problem remains to be unsolved is the ignorance of the people. Yes, ignorance. People know that hunger is occurring yet they choose to ignore its existence since they do not feel it.

As of 2012, 13.1 percent of the world’s population or about 925 million people experienced hunger on a daily basis. They are considered to be undernourished and consume less than the 2,100 recommended calories each day.

The most common and visible victims of hunger or under nutrition according to United Nations are the children. Undernourished children suffer up to 160 days of illness each year. Meaning these children are really prone to sickness and illnesses. Studies also found that almost half of the children’s death cases are caused by hunger. The common illnesses or sickness suffered by these poor children are diarrhea, malaria, pneumonia and measles.

The number of cases of undernourished children are relatively high in Asia with 70 percent, next is Africa with 27 percent and Latin America and Caribbean with 4 percent. Studies also shows that the under nourishment of these children starts at birth. These children were born from mothers who are also malnourished. Mothers in developing countries have high percentage of bearing malnourished children that leads infants that were born to be underweight. This is true to one of six infants that were born on these developing countries.

A recent study shows that the world is producing enough food to feed all the people in the world. Then, why is it that a huge number of people are hungry? The problem depicted is that, these people who are under nourished, do not own a sufficient land to grow foods or they do not have enough money to buy foods.

What is the primary cause of hunger?

The depicted primary cause of hunger is poverty. Poverty refers to the people who have lack resources preferably money, food and shelter. The poverty is also caused by either unemployment or underemployment. An increased or huge number of populations can also cause poverty. When the people are poor they do not have enough money to buy their basic needs like foods.

As years pass, government and private institutions have developed many ways and programs to stop hunger. But then, these efforts are not enough. In order to solve this problem, all the people must be involved. Not one, not two but all the people should participate.

Remember that a change starts within you.

Health Is Every Person’s Right

Thousands of people die every day without proper medical assistance and support. Millions of people die because they have no access to affordable medical services. Health is every person’s right. As World Health Organization proposes, “The right to health means that governments must generate conditions in which everyone can be as healthy as possible.” Government must exert all efforts on making sure that there are available health services that their citizens can access. Also, governments must have policies on making sure that citizens have healthy and safe working conditions, adequate shelter and nutritious food. It’s not the responsibility of the government to make sure that people are healthy because a person’s health is beyond its control. However, just as long as government provides people access to affordable health care, they are on the right track.

151 global healthcare

 

The right to health care includes availability of sufficient working public health and health care facilities, health goods and services, and programs that can help each and every individual. Alongside the availability of which is the access they can have. Government health agencies should make appropriations for people of various socio-economic classes to gain access on these health facilities, goods, and services. Also, the citizens should have access to up to date information on health issues and concerns anytime they need it. Government must exert all effort to provide essential health information to its people helping them venture into healthy living.

Availability and access of health facilities, goods and services should always of standard good quality.  Otherwise, what would it be for if facilities cannot perform necessary functions that should cater to the needs of the people. What benefit would these people get if the kinds of medicines they get aren’t good; the kind of service they get cannot suffice their needs. Quality of these health goods and services can define the quality of people’s life. These products are as important as a person’s life. The moment governments become lax about their health programs, facilities, and services it is already tantamount to becoming lax about its citizen’s welfare.

It is highly important that every individual must know of what is happening to his or her body, to know of what is his/her current health condition. We can’t afford not to care for our health.  Health is my right, your right, everybody’s right and no one can take it away from us- not even a powerful government.

Global Obesity: The Worldwide Epidemic Of Excessive Weight

073 global obesetyImagine that you are sitting in your dining area waiting for your mother to serve you your food. The heavenly smell of your mom’s cooking reaches your nostrils. Now, your taste buds are awakened. Your mother serves you two dishes: a vegan dish sided with fresh fruits and a grilled bacon and cheese burger with fries. The vegetables and fruits are healthy, but your appetite and taste buds won’t be satisfied. Munching on burger and fries will surely fill your stomach, but it’s loaded with calories. Which would you choose to eat?

Unhealthy weight gain starts with an unhealthy lifestyle. This includes not exercising and continuously eating junk food. This has become the lifestyle of the majority of the world’s population. The world is gaining fat fast. Obesity, often measured through a person’s Body Mass Index (BMI), is having excessive fat in your body. It has become a global problem according to the World Health Organization.

All over the world, there is an estimated 500 million obese adults (World Health Organization, 2013). In the U.S., nearly a third of the population over the age of 20 is obese.  Surprisingly, the number of people suffering obesity has outpaced the population suffering from hunger according to World Watch Institute.  The rate of global obesity is expected to rise rapidly over the years.

Global obesity is steered by the changes in the global food system. Food has become processed and unhealthy. Obesity is most rampant in low income people of wealthy countries like the United States. The affordability of fast food and other processed food has persuaded low-income consumers of wealthy countries to buy these kinds of goods. On the other hand, obesity in low income countries is prevalent among people living in a wealthy and urban environment. In addition, the sedentary lifestyle of people greatly contributes to the causes of obesity. The lack of exercise and physical activity leads to lesser fat burned.

An obese person is susceptible to a number of chronic diseases. Examples of these diseases tied with obesity are hypertension, cancers, coronary heart disease, stroke and more. Consequently, these diseases have associated medical costs which may be preventive, diagnostic or treatment services. Annual U.S. healthcare costs spent on obesity-related diseases have reached an estimate of $240 billion, according to Eric Schlosser (Worldometers, 2013).

The global obesity epidemic has become a complex problem. Clearly, overconsumption has reduced the lifespan of people suffering obesity. There is a need for increase awareness in having a healthy lifestyle. As an individual, unhealthy food intake could be controlled and limited. Physical activities and a nutritious diet are helpful in preventing obesity. Food industries could promote and ensure food that is beneficial to the consumers’ health. Obesity is something that people can prevent by exercising self-control and practicing a healthy way of life.

Top 10 Global Health Issues

068 global healthWhat is global health? Do you have any idea about the definition of global health? It is simply defined as the health of populations in a global context and transcends the perspectives and concerns of individual nations. In fact, we have some global health issues that the government as a whole is looking for solutions for this problem. Let me give you some of the global health issues that is being discussed. This include: The growing role of frontline health workers, the need for more community health workers, the rebirth of family planning, helping even more children to live longer, aids: getting to zero, the continuing fight against malaria, eradicating polio, the global burden of non-communicable disease, safety for health workers during conflicts, and mobile health and new technologies. If you have notice that it all has to do in promoting better health. Because of the global warming and effects of the greenhouse, many people have suffered different types of illnesses.

It’s a fact that the world that we live in is not that safe anymore because of pollutions and the use of harmful chemicals. If you notice that the life of people of these modern generations is becoming shorter and shorter. Base on reports, most of the people died because of illnesses not because of old age. There is also another outbreak in most tropical island – dengue. Dengue is a virus that is being carried by mosquitoes and it could infect humans through a single bite. In the Philippines, the case of dengue keeps on increasing especially these months because it’s raining season. Mosquitoes love wet areas because that is where they can breed, every year, hundreds of people die in the Philippines because of dengue; not only in the Philippines, but also in other tropical areas, where they are exposed to mosquitoes.

If there is an outbreak in one area, the World Health Organization is alarmed because it’s their job to secure, educate, and help people when it comes to health. The local government is also notified so that they could do something to warn the people of the outbreak so the spread of the virus or bacteria can be stopped.

Our health is very important. We need to give heed to the warnings so we could protect ourselves from getting infected. That’s why I would suggest that if you have time, try to watch world news so you would have an idea what’s going on in the world especially with global health issues.

Global Shipping For Buying Products Abroad

079 global shippingAre you thinking of starting a business? What type of business would like to do? Are you into buy and sell? Buy and sell is a good business because you can get an easy profit especially if the product that you bought is on sale then you sell them at market price. In fact, I myself have been doing a buy and sell business for years now and it’s a good business. I made a good profit from it. The reason I can sell my products so easily because my products came from other countries, in short it’s imported. The products that I sell are cosmetic products such as lotion, colognes, perfume, clothing, accessories, bags, slippers, and other ready-to-wear products.

You might be wondering how these imported products being shipped to my place? It’s simple, my dad reside from other countries and he’s the one who is buying all those stuff and shipped with the help of these global shipping companies. My dad will normally buy the box and he will fill it will all the stuff that we need and also with the stocks that we will be selling. So, normally, people in my place love to buy an imported product that’s why I can easily sell them. Te good thing about buy and sell business especially if you are an independent seller, you don’t need to have business permits for you to start this kind of business.

Another business that also uses the services of global shipping companies is those businesses online. Of course, most businesses online don’t have a real store. They have stocks on hand and all you can see from their websites are photos of the available stocks. That’s where you also place your order and personal information like your phone number, full name, credit card number, and mailing address where they will be mailing the items. So, when they mail the items to you, they use global shipping companies especially if the buyer lives in other country.

Now you see how helpful global shipping companies are. They make the shipping business a lot easier and faster. There are different types of shipping services that you can avail and each of them may have different rates. Ocean freight, international and domestic air freight, nationwide domestic truck services (door to door), and full export and import documentation. Now, my dad usually has the ocean freight that’s why it takes awhile before the package arrives.

World Problems: Simple Solutions To Global Warming

072 world problemsThe world is a good place to live in because it provides us with everything we need. It gives us shelter, food, clothing, and all the resources that we need to so that can enjoy this beautiful life that we are having. But, as the years go by, people are becoming abusive in exploiting these resources which leads to serious world problems such as pollution, starvation, deforestation, and poverty. This is why the world is suffering as of today and the people as well are suffering from their own actions. But it is never too late to change and this is the reason why they are doing all that they can to address these problems. Many countries now are banning logging, improving their health care systems, improving waste management, and many more. But there is still one major problem that is the result of people’s mistakes and this is one that cannot be solved right away. This problem is global warming. Global warming is a phenomenon wherein the Earth’s atmosphere slowly increases in temperature. This is caused greenhouse gases produced by the activities of humans. For example, smoke emissions, burning, and deforestation are some factors that contribute a lot to global warming. So how can we solve this problem? Well, there is no exact solution since our atmosphere is not something that can be restored easily. But here are some simple ways on how we can help stop global warming.

First on the list is reducing smoke emissions. Cars are the major sources of these gases so it is best if we lessen the extent of driving our cars. For example, if you are going to a particular place try to walk if it is not that far. You will be able to exercise, save money, and most of all, lessen pollution. You can also buy cars which are energy efficient and try to avoid having lots of cars. Second, you can try to reduce the use of appliances. Do not use many appliances at the same time. For example, if you are doing your laundry, do not iron your clothes. Yes, this would mean that you are able to save time but you are using a lot of energy and also it consumes a lot of electricity which is very expensive. Lastly, try to plant lots of trees because it helps in reducing the amount of harmful gases in the air.

These are just some simple ways but if everybody does it, we would be able to help save mother earth.

Without them, we will have no idea about what’s going on in other parts of the world of the country where you live. Why do you think news is very important to our day-to-day living?

The Good And Bad Effects Of Greenhouse Gases To Human Activities

078 global green house gasesSince the start of the Industrial Revolution, the burning of fossil fuel had contributed to a forty percent increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Although the uptakes of a large portion of the emissions by various natural sinks involved in the carbon cycle.Anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions (i.e., emissions produced by human activities) that comes from combustion of carbon based fuels, primarily the wood, coal, oil, and natural gas. Today, global warming has been affecting our environment around the world and it was due to the tem called “greenhouse gas”. So what is a greenhouse gas? And what is its effect to the environment and the people? Greenhouse gas which sometimes abbreviated as GHG is a gas in the atmosphere that absorbs and releases radiation within the thermal infrared range. This process is the primary cause of the greenhouse effect to humans and all living organisms. The fundamental greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere are carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, water vapor, methane and the ozone. If these are the types of gases produce by the atmosphere of the Earth then it will greatly affect human activities around the world.

 

At some point, let us understand the fundamentals of greenhouse gases. Carbon dioxide and abbreviate as (CO2). Fossil fuel usage is the primary source of CO2. The way in which citizens used land is also an important source of CO2, especially when it involves deforestation. Land can also take away CO2 from the atmosphere through reforestation, soil improvement, and other activities. Nitrous oxide which is also abbreviate as N2O, affect that agricultural activities, such as fertilizer use, are the primary source of N2O emissions. Fluorinated gases (F-gases) in the industrial processes, refrigeration, and the use of a variety of consumer products contribute to emissions of F-gases, which include hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). Methane (CH4), in agricultural activities, waste management, and energy use all contribute to CH4 emissions. Black carbon (BC) is a solid particle or aerosol, not a gas, but it also contributes to warming of the atmosphere.

 

After all the effects of greenhouse gases to our health and to the environment, the truth is we could live without it. It has been part of our daily activities ever since the start of revolution around the world. This effect of greenhouse gases had been associated by global warming which in fact tell us that there are different gases that exist in the Earth’s atmosphere. It might hurt and affect the living organism but it just makes our environment a good place to live a few crises to face on.

How To Tackle Global Hunger

There are many problems that confront the current generation around the world. One of these problems is global hunger. The reason there is such a problem in the world can be based on the fact that individuals within a certain community will lack the capacity and capability to purchase food or grow food. There are many complex reasons that are tied to one another but basically, poor planning by certain governments around the world as well as changing weather patterns all contribute towards problems such as world hunger.

Basically, there is the capacity around the world to produce enough food to feed the entire population. However, not many governments give these opportunities fair amount of time and attention as should be the case. The United Nations advices governments to allocate about 15 percent of GDP to agriculture so as to enhance the growth of food crops. However, the advise is not always followed and many nations lack the capacity to grow their own food. This results in hunger problems as the farmers will lack enough capital to grow their own food, enough money to purchase farm inputs, fertilizer and quality seeds with high yields.

When such problems arise, then there will be hunger within the nation and when the problem repeats in many countries then there will be global hunger. This will mean that large numbers of people around the world will not have sufficient food and many will not have a square meal three times per day. These problems are prevalent in continents such as Africa and Asia. Sub Saharan Africa is badly affected and the problem mainly arises out of corruption and poor governance. These problems need to be addressed on a global forum with major organizations providing information as well as resources on modern methods of agriculture and funds for purchase of farm inputs.

Organizations such as the UN and other bodies always try to put these matters onto a global agenda. This way, they will receive the resources and facilities they may need in order to access the kind of education they need to progress in life. Provision of clean drinking water to large populations around the world will entail the process of allowing the individuals to access processes and procedures that are important to the entire world.

Poor countries in Africa, Asia and South America as well as those in Central America and the Caribbean will need assistance from global bodies. Organizations such as the World Bank will normally support local organizations and NGOs or non government organizations that endeavor to provide global health care to local populations. There are many programs targeted at these initiatives and it is important that sufficient effort it made towards these opportunities. This is essential in uplifting people out of poverty.

To begin with, there are about one billion people around the world who cannot access the basic health care facilities.  Many people are overweight and the health of the USA is dwindleing.  Many doctors have been suggesting the use of a garcinia cambogia as a way to start getting rid of fat. Despite this problem being recognized by developed nations and healthcare organizations, very little has been done. In the 1970s for example, the WHO began a health campaign popularly known as the ‘Health for All’ campaign which focused on helping everyone access basic health care facilities by the year 2000. 30 years down the line, this particular campaign is still far from realization.

Secondly, it is important to note that infectious and parasitic diseases are considered to be the leading causes of global deaths. According to research which was carried out in 1997, from a total of 52 million deaths, about 17 million were caused by parasitic diseases. The research further showed that 15 million people died from circulatory diseases while 6.2 million died from cancer. Other common causes of death according to the research included respiratory diseases and prenatal conditions.

HIV/AIDS is considered to be one of the biggest health hazards to children in the current century. Analysts believe that if nothing is done in the near future, this particular health complication can easily reverse the major gains made in the last 50 years. In addition, many of them believe that this infectious disease will continue to dominate developing countries for a good number of years due to the adoption of the ‘western’ lifestyles and their accompanying risk factors.
