All of us are only entitled to live our lives only once. It is just ironic why many individuals have habits that shorten their lives, that is regardless if they are living depressed or happy lives. Out of the long list of life-shortening habits, smoking is the most resounding and notorious in the list. Even the smokers themselves view the habit of smoking as harmful. Smoking even belongs in the list of the top causes of death practically everywhere in the world. But despite of its reputation as a top unhealthy habit, most smokers find it difficult to withdraw from their addiction. Smoking's grip is not just because of the addictive chemicals in cigarettes like nicotine. Addiction to smoking is a double-edged dilemma. The act itself is addictive for smokers, like holding a cigarette and puffing out smoke.read more

Being the most abundant mineral in the body, it is not surprising that calcium is one of the most emphasized in discussions about minerals. Its abundance is shown by its presence not only in the skeletal system but also in the body fluids. Still, between the skeletal system and body fluids, calcium is more associated with the skeletal system. This is because 99% of all the calcium in the human body is located in the bones (Whitney, Cataldo and Rolfes, 2002). As a matter of fact, it is its principal component and is responsible for its structure, shape and density.read more
Since time immemorial, people seem to be so conscious with the way they look and with the manner other people perceive them. Oftentimes, this consciousness mainly starts from the most salient form of a human being—the physical form. People pay too much time, effort, and money just to maintain their desired appearance, fashion style, and most of all, weight. But how about those people who do not care at all about their weight? More specifically, how about those people who, even they do not intend, belong to the group of overweight people?read more
Are you an overweight person? Or do you know somebody who is overweight? What are the things do you think that have caused of being overweight? And what are the effects of being one?

Some people don't realise that everyone doesn't portray sex the same way. To make logical choices regarding sex is extremely important. If the choices made aren't logical, having unprotected sexual intercourse could result in unwanted pregnancy, STD’s such as herpes, pubic lice, HIV, and hurt feelings. One of the major risks of having unprotected sex is pregnancy. Pregnancy for teens, for instance, is their biggest fear of having sex as they rarely use contraceptives. There are 13 000 teen pregnancies every year. Out of all of these pregnancies, 50% choose abortion, 20% choose single parenting, 15% eliminate marriage, and 12-13% choose to get married. Even thought there are so many teen pregnancies per year, it has decreased by half since the 1970s. Teen pregnancies can result in haemorrhage (hard to control bleeding), damaged cervix, preterm birth, and/or infertility (So, Wong, and DeLeon 457). Out of all of these possibilities, these are only the physical complications. Psychological problems from sex are guilt and depression. After they have sex they can feel guilty for being or making their partner pregnant. Also, depression can make you feel bad about yourself, especially if you become sexually attracted to someone and they leave you.read more

Binge drinking and drug use are very common among young adults, including college students. As a matter of fact, young people are also facing dire consequences of substance abuse with falling grades, drunken driving accidents, sexual harassment, and violence. Unsurprisingly, society views this as a serious problem, and psychologists are trying to understand substance abuse among young adults before they can hope to provide help to the individuals concerned. This effort on the part of researchers is based on the premises that we cannot solve a problem before we understand the nature of the problem. Hence, Melanie E. Bennett, Joseph E. Miller, and W. Gill Woodall (1999) published their study on substance abuse to expand researchers’ knowledge on the subject in question.read more
