After weeks of tests and studying day to day lives of working class people in Manchester I made shocking discoveries and have found that many people live in horrendous living conditions, which create terrible health problems and disease. The combination of the dark damp courtyards in back to back housing and the broken and badly fitted windows mean that chest infections often lung infections. This can be diphtheria, pneumonia and tuberculosis. The symptoms are; serious throat infection (the throat swells up so you cannot swallow), fever, weight loss, chest pains, shortness of breath and sufferers cough up blood. These diseases can be cured with a good diet and warm, clean dry housing.
Indicators: Going to the hospital a lot due to factures, burns and broken bones. The person may not want to be touched because they don’t trust you and are scared. They may also have unexplained bruising and marks on their skin. Case study on physical abuse: Mark is 54 years old, 10 years ago had a stroke which left him partially paralysed. He has carers came into his home three times a day, but his wife cares for him the rest of the time.
What is more, lower yield in less-developed countries leads to ‘yield gap’ in agricultural production (Godfray, 2010). Farmers in developing countries do not master the advanced technical knowledge and skills which can increase food productivity (Godfray, 2010). Also there is not sufficient investment in agricultural area in these countries (Godfray, 2010). So proper measures must be taken to deal with these serious problems. First of all, one part of solutions is strengthening the research in agricultural area (Godfray, 2010).
Four kilometers of pine trees turned reddish-brown after the accident. This is where the name “Red Forest” was earned. Animals near the badly affected areas either died or stopped reproducing. The radiation caused numerous problems to humans as well, including Down's Syndrome, chromosomal aberrations, mutations, leukemia, thyroid cancer, and birth defects. Social & Economic Effect The tragic accident cost a huge sum of money.
The documentary Food Inc. touches on these topics and shows how little consumers know about what they eat and where it derives from. The documentary Food Inc. shows how most people are under the fallacious belief that their foods are grown on appealing farms often depicted on the packaging of the product themselves. In reality only a few of these farms are present and large factory farms have replaced most of them (Food Inc.). Food Inc. displays how viciously animals are being treated from their living conditions and at slaughterhouses. The documentary also shows how animals are given antibiotics to make them grow much more rapidly.
Lot of people has that the factory faming spread diseases to other animals and it is unhealthy. Nonetheless, modern farming stops bad diseases by making the animals healthy. Furthermore, they use clean pesticides, antibiotics, vitamins and fertilizers to produce more and better quality animals. Therefore, costumers could buy meat into lower prices on supermarkets. In addition, promoters of factory farming say that the factory farming helps the economy of a country, creates more jobs, and lower borne illness.
Then, as time is passed, gradually they can forget the excessively sorrowful memories one by one. By this representation, I wished that whatever pain it was, there could be some ways to escape from the nightmare someday. "Now Halle's face between the butter press and the churn swelled larger and larger, crowding her eyes and making her head hurt." (Beloved, p 101) This quotation represents that Halle, one of the slaves went crazy with sorrow and pain after he saw his wife Sethe was stolen her milk and was bitten to harshly from her owner. He may had extreme remorse and regreat that he could not
This made me really hurt as a child because I did not want to hear or accept the fact that my grandfather was sick because all it made me think about was death. As time and years went passed I started to pay more attention to exactly what was going on with the nutrition and health of my grandfather. I watched his eating habits, his medication intake, and I even kept track of the amount of physical activity he did.
Another disease soldiers caught during World War 1 is dysentery. Dysentery is an infection of the intestines marked by severe diarrhoea, caused by poor water supply, water cleanliness and no proper toilets for the soldiers to use. Dirty drinking water caused a lot of problems during World War 1, mainly because it contains all sorts of illnesses and diseases, which once you have in your system, cause you to get ill. Cholera was cause by dirty water, causing sickness, diarrhoea and even death it if was left untreated for long enough. Trench mouth was also common during World War 1. This is where you get an infection of the mouth, caused by poor oral hygiene and lack of important vitamins, due to a poor diet, smoking, tooth or mouth infections and stress.
For decades people of various communities have been expressing growing concern over the quality of waterways and the drinking water supply. These communities receive the water piped into their homes or wells via lake or ground and with pollution levels on the rise the safety and quality of the water supply is being questioned. The people not only rely on this vital resource for sustainment but also for recreation and the growing concerns are valid because of many of today’s environmental practices or non-practices. Industry, institution, as well as individual, must make the commitment to improve practice of undesirable chemicals and compounds from ever reaching the water supply. Proper disposal of old tires, used oil and other automotive or machinery wastes are several of the forerunners of polluting agents.
