Teens Headed in the Wrong Direction

I think all of us could see that teenagers are going in the wrong direction and not using contraceptives while having sex. I don't get how teenagers see it as some thing so casual? In my time (which wasn't too long ago), we all were aware of what's around us, what could happen if we don't protect ourselves. Any kind of contraceptives works, and it will reduce your chance of having any kind of STD, AIDS/HIV, etc. I read this article about how teenagers are going in the wrong path and should be schooled on sex and it's disadvantages. Between 2003 and 2007, the progress made in the 1990s and early 2000s in improving teen contraceptive use and reducing teen pregnancy and childbearing stalled, and may even have reversed among certain groups of teens, according to a new study. Between 1991 and 2003, teens' condom use increased while their use of no contraceptive method declined, leading to a decreased risk of pregnancy and to declines in teen pregnancy and childbearing. The new findings paint a very different picture since 2003.

Truth About Bottled Water

Okay, so I always had a habit of buying a pack or 2 of water bottles and leaving it in the back of my trunk. My mama always told me that it's bad to do that. Nope, I didn't listen. I thought it would come in handy if I ever needed water or if someone in the car needed water unexpectly. After reading this article about bottle water and how the heat can produce unwanted chemicals into the contents I now understand why. Gah, I've been doing this for about 2 years now. Should've listen to my mom when she told me so. "Pumpkin (yes she still calls me pumpkin even when I'm 20), it's bad for you to leave water in the high temperature you know that right?" Uh huh, yes mama. After reading this article I need to go home and hug my mom and tell her I should have listen!! No more leaving it in my trunk.
Turns out, when certain plastics are heated at a high temperature, chemicals from the plastics may leach into container’s contents. So there’s been a flurry of speculation recently as to whether the amounts of these chemicals are actually harmful, and whether this is even a concern when it comes to water bottles—which aren’t likely to be placed in boiling water or even a microwave. Small amounts of chemicals from PET water bottles such as antimony—a semi-metal that’s thought to be toxic in large doses—can accumulate the longer bottled water is stored in a hot environment. Which, of course, is probably a good reason to avoid storing bottled water in your garage for six months—or better yet, to just reach for tap instead.
I didn't even think drinking tap water would be better than drinking a brand new water bottle that's been sitting in the heat. From what my friend told me earlier, she said that not a lot of the water is really from tap. Some water bottles are actually tested clean (chemistry class). The reason why they are contaminated is because of the heat that caused the chemical to mix with the water. How could she not have told me this earlier? Oh wells, at least I learned my lesson now. No more leaving pack of water bottles in the car. No good, No good.

Benefits of being a Vegetarian

I always knew that being a vegetarian would be good in many ways. A person will always eat healthy! Unless they are eating a Mc Donalds Filet O Fish. haha some Vegans are hardcore and dont eat specific things to the core. But there are a lot good things that come with being a vegetarian! I found a great article about it. I hope this will convince some of you who are thinking of being vegetarian, to be one! Eventhough I don't have enough will power, I still think that some of you should consider it (=. It's a dramatic lifestyle, but also a healthy lifestyle. The American Dietetic Association has released an updated position paper on vegetarian diets that concludes such diets, if well-planned, are healthful and nutritious for adults, infants, children and adolescents and can help prevent and treat chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes. I just wish that I had enough courage to come a vegan, but I'm too much of a meat lover to do so )=. So for those of you who are thinking about it, please feel free to look at the article where it inspired me to write this in my blog.
