Geography - human Chinas one child policy In 1978 China introduce the one child policy as a solution to social, economic and environmental problems, it was also introduced to stop the mass famine China was facing if its population continued to expand in the way it was. In the beginning the one child policy allowed each couple to have one child and one child only this caused 9/10 couples to be apposed to the policy. This 'only one child' caused lots of problems; one was the fact that the policy put rural farmers at a disadvantage, they needed more children to help them farm the land but having those necessary children meant playing fines or having benefit taken away from them, it was also known for electricity and water to be turned off until they aborted the baby. Not having these necessary children meant farmers could not earn a living and production of staple foods such as rice would've recused causing china to have the same problem that they faced with an increasing population - famine. This caused the government to layer revise the policy to allow rural couples to have two children with out loosing benefits.
Luckily this was countered by Gorbachev’s anti-alcohol campaign when he assigned alcohol factories to ice cream production. Some threats of substitutes would be trade-off of substitutes and buyer inclination to substitute (due to higher advertising on their part): beer, soft drinks, yogurts, and confectionaries. They stole some of the market demand from the Russian ice cream industry in 2000. Some buyer power issues would be available substitutes and backward integration. When the market became open it allowed many more ice cream substitutes into the market.
In addition to this, whole milk tastes better and may be the only way to encourage picky eater kids to drink milk. This is due to the fact that children who are picky eaters simply do not get enough fats and calories needed by their bodies from the rest of their diet. However, there has been a recent report which stated that the American Academy of Pediatrics has issued a recommendation for children between the ages of 12 months to 2 years of age to switch to reduced-fat or low fat milk, particularly if they are already overweight or if they have a family history of overweight and high cholesterol conditions. This is due to the fact that whole milk contains a lot of fat in it which is the leading cause of childhood obesity. * Whole Milk - 150 Calories - 8g Fat * 2% Milk - 120 Calories - 4.5g Fat (Reduced fat milk) * 1% Milk - 100 Calories - 2.5g Fat (Low-fat milk) * Skim Milk - 80 Calories - 0g Fat (Nonfat milk) As a result of these conflicting reports, this student decided to venture to his
Mother's milk was considered a miracle fluid which could cure people and give wisdom. Breastfeeding in the Western world declined significantily from the late 1800s to the 1960s. By the 1950s, the predominant attitude to breastfeeding was that is was something practiced by the uneducated and the lower classes.

By 2005, it controlled a mere 3% of the Chinese cookie market and the team even considered pulling Oreo out of the Chinese market altogether for the long-term losses. While Chinese market plays an important part in Kraft’s international business, in 2005, Kraft decided to research the Chinese market to understand why the Oreo cookie that was so successful in most countries had failed to resonate with the Chinese people. Research showed the Chinese people were not big cookie eaters. Chinese consumers liked the contrast of sweet and bitter but they thought it was a little bit too sweet and a little bit too bitter. Without the emotional attachment of American consumers who grew up with the cookie, the taste and shape could be quite alien.
d Genetic Modification of fruits and vegetables be beneficial to human, animal and environmental health? Problem: Around the world many young children and adults are suffering from malnutrition leading to disease and mortality. The World Health Organisation estimates that there are 178 million malnourished children worldwide, all of whom are less able to fend off disease and 20 million of whom are at risk of death, showing that we need to find a solution for this growing problem. (4) The body as a whole needs to receive the correct amount of vitamins, minerals and other crucial nutrients for its organs and tissues to function properly and to keep them healthy. People who live in more economically privileged countries, predominately Europe tend not to suffer as badly from malnutrition, but with the growing number of obesity rates and heart disease there is a clear indication of an unhealthy, unbalanced diet.
Imagine eating 10 large, full spoonfuls of sugar; this will give you an idea of how much sugar you ingest with each can of soda.

Which is just a few! So, drinking soda will cause many diseases on our bodies. Secondly, soda will cause not only diseases, but also one of the biggest sources of pollution in the world.
The government were extremely concerned that this was going to be a repeat of the 1918 and 1957 pandemics; where nearly 50-100 million people died worldwide, but, the pandemics became milder as time went on. The deaths were reduced due to medical advancements and more people were aware of the actions needed to prevent the disease; so who is mot at risk? Anyone can suffer from swine flu, but children (specifically under 5’s because their immune systems aren’t fully developed yet), pregnant women and people with existing health problems; are the most affected. The puzzling aspect of the H1N1 virus is that it also effects the healthier of us. At one point, out of 77 deaths 1/5th were extremely healthy.
The policy was established to improve social, economic and environmental problems in China, as well to reduce the rapid growth of China’s population. It is known that from 1979 to 2011, China has prevented 400 million births. The One Child Policy was introduced to china for many reasons. One reason would be to supply China’s people. Like every other country, China has a limited amount of food, water, shelter and education; it does not have enough resources to supply the whole country, especially if the one child policy was never introduced.
