There are many reasons to worry about it. This social media is hurting our society in such way that it causing harm to one’s privacy, it disseminates misinformation, and effect on student’s grade. It is clear that social media is hurting our society by putting one’s privacy and security at risk. In the article “Teens Privacy Is Threatened by Social Networking” author Peter Bazalgette said, “Can you truly delete entries from social networking sites with the confidence they no longer exist on a server somewhere? You cannot” (Bazalgette p.1).
For example, if a student has poor housing then it will affect their schoolwork as they could have no quiet places to do homework, or possible disturbed sleep from sharing bedrooms which would in turn affect concentration. If their housing is extremely poor then it could cause problems to a child’s health, as damp and cold housing can make illnesses worse. If a students’ material deprivation means that they are receiving a poor diet at home, then this will also affect their work. Poor nutrition can weaken the immune system, meaning the student could get ill more often and so miss work. A poor diet can also affect the child’s energy levels, so even if they do go into school they find it difficult to concentrate.
“Dieting often fails because people are trying to go against their biological drive to eat.” Discuss explanations for the success and failure of dieting. Dieting is extremely common and research has shown that up to 70% of women diet at some stage in their lives. Some diets are successful, whereas some are not and there are many explanations for this. One explanation for why dieting is successful is that those with low self-esteem and are dissatisfied with their body are more likely to stick to their diet and lose weight. Ogdens’ 2000 study supports this view; he investigated differences in psychological factors between weight loss regainers and weight loss maintainers.
Tall, short, skinny and fat are all distinctive traits that people may have. But these are more than just mere physical traits though; they are also traits that contribute to a person’s identity. 80% of 10-year-old girls have dieted. 90% of high school junior and senior women diet regularly. Young girls are more afraid of becoming fat than they are of nuclear war, cancer, or losing their parents.
The secret is using a 'gross' method which depicts teenagers drinking bottles of lard with fat flowing down their faces. This method has proved to cause a decrease in obesity rates among teenagers in the state of Hawaii. Additionally, a director from the Department of Health, Loretta Fuddy, believes, "Rethink Your Drink has had a significant impact on behavior change among our teens. This type of public education is essential to improving health and wellness, as it gives teens the information they need to make healthy choices in their everyday lives." Although the majority of teens reported drinking sugary drinks every week, the ‘Rethink Your Drink’ campaign used such a
We feel Obesity is caused by peoples eating habits but the greasy, fattening food available to them isn’t helping either.

So since they have low income they only thing they can do is go buy fast food. Arken and Houston also state more causes of obesity in the inner-city, “Obesity is determined by many factors (e.g inactivity, high-fat diet cultural preference)”(2).The culture the parents put their child in is basically by forced because of their living situation. With the low income it’s hard for the African American people to take their child to get health insurance, so they can’t receive advice from the medical establishment on how to prevent obesity. In, “Facing Up to Childhood Obesity” Phillips states the effects of inactivity in Great Britain. Arken and Houston do the same in Obesity in Inner-City African
Research has also shown heavy viewers, which is four or more hours a day, put in less effort at school, have poorer reading skills, play less friendly with friends, have fewer hobbies and activities, and are more likely to be overweight. The American Psychological Association says there are three major effects of watching violence in the media (ex: video games/television) children may become less sensitive to the pain and suffering of others, children may be more fearful of the world around them, and children may be more likely to behave in aggressive or hurtful ways toward others. DOES VIOLENCE IN MEDIA AFFECT CHILDREN’S BEHAVIOR
We find that among 9th grade children, a fast food restaurant within a tenth of a mile of a school is associated with at least a 5.2 percent increase in obesity rates. There is no discernable effect at .25 miles and at .5 miles. Among pregnant women, models with mother fixed effects indicate that a fast food restaurant within a half mile of her residence results in a 1.6 percent increase in the probability of gaining over 20 kilos, with a larger effect at .1 miles. The effect is significantly larger for African-American and less educated women. For both school children and mothers, the presence of non-fast food restaurants is uncorrelated with weight outcomes.
The easy way out to being healthy and eating right for ones body, fast food has plagued the nation especially with diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and even strokes or heart attacks. A question is now posed of whether or not fast foods should be fed to children, in substitute of their regular lunches at school. These kids are what seem like innocent victims because of their naivety towards the real problems with fast food. The problems with this quick fix in school cafeterias are that students would become obese, they would develop bad habits, and that the school would be advertising for these companies. “More than 70 percent of obese adolescents retain their overweight and obese condition even during their adulthood” (What Are Children Munching On?).
