Question and answer
5 ways in which you critically discuss how life style disease/ behaviour impact on the teenager (abuse of both legal and illegal drugs among the youth)
Adolescents who abuse drugs often act out, do poorly academically, and drop out of school. They are at risk of unplanned pregnancies, violence, and infectious diseases. The first decision to take drugs is mostly voluntary. [ However, when drug abuse takes over, a person's ability to exert self control can become seriously impaired. Brain imaging studies from drug-addicted individuals show physical changes in areas of the brain that are critical to judgment, decision making, learning and memory, and behavior control. These changes may alter the way the brain works, and may help explain the
compulsive and destructive behaviors of addiction. Although taking drugs at any age can lead to addiction, research shows that the earlier a person begins to use drugs the more likely they are to progress to more serious abuse. This may reflect the harmful effect that drugs can have on the developing brain; it also may result from a variety of early biological and social vulnerability factors, including genetic susceptibility, mental illness, unstable family relationships, and exposure to physical or sexual abuse. ]
