. I think the more we learn about the affects of second hand smoke that more stringent ordinances will be developed. For instance, some groups are encouraging no smoking policies particularly in multi-unit housing such as apartments. Smoke has the ability to travel from one unit to another which exposes non-smoking residents to second hand smoke and increases their risk for respiratory conditions. I think it is important to protect non-smokers as well as those who have respiratory illnesses ...
Weegy: yes, non-smokers should be protected. non-smokers do not smoke because they want to be healthy. and they have the right to live in a healthy environment. [ I think the smoker that smokes in a public place or near a non-smoker, violates the rights of the non-smoker. ] (More)

Why a lack of oxygen causes the body to slow down?
Weegy: Insufficient oxygen can slow down the placental blood flow, leading to severe complications like cerebral palsy. Lack of oxygen intake will slow down the metabolism, an acidic body cannot lose weight and keep it off.

What are the factors that influence health related behaviors?
Weegy: Health-related behavior is one of the most important elements in people's health and well-being. Its importance has grown as sanitation has improved and medicine has advanced. [ Diseases that were once incurable or fatal can now be prevented or successfully treated, and health-related behavior has become an important component of public health. The improvement of health-related behaviors is, therefore, central to public health activities. Behavioral factors play a role in each of the twelve leading causes of death, including chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and stroke, which are the major causes of death in the United States and other developed countries. The most common behavioral contributors to mortality, or death, in 1990 included the use of alcohol, tobacco, firearms, and motor vehicles; diet and activity patterns; sexual behavior; and illicit use of drugs. Behaviors such as these are thought to contribute to almost half of the deaths in the United States, and, according to J. McGinnis and W. Foege (1993), they were responsible for nearly 1 million deaths in the United States in the year of 1992 alone. The social and economic costs related to these behaviors can all be greatly reduced by changes in individuals' behaviors. The last two decades of the twentieth century saw a rising interest in preventing disability and death through changes in health-related behaviors, particularly changes in lifestyle habits and participation in screening programs. Much of this interest was stimulated by the change in disease patterns from infectious to chronic diseases as leading causes of death, combined with the aging of the population, rapidly escalating health care costs, and data linking individual behaviors to increased risk of morbidity and mortality. The AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) epidemic also contributed. Although there is more information about what constitutes healthy behavior and risk factors than ever before, this ... (More)
