Diabetes


Diabetes is serious disease which effects the body’s. Glucose is main source of energy and sugar in the blood. We get glucose from starchy foods like potatoes, rice, bread and sweets. However, the body needs insulin to produce glucose in order to go into the cells. Diabetes do not produce insulin. Consequently, their glucose levels become dangerously low (Reading). This creates many health problems. In this essay I will discuss some of the causes and effects of diabetes. [transition signals\ citation]

There are a number of causes of diabetes. First, there are two kinds of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. For example, Type 2 diabetes, whichis the most common type and called ‘adult onsetdiabetes’, is a result of people’s lifestyle(Reading).For instance,many people who arefat develop diabetes because they do not exercise, and it is difficult for their bodies’ cell to produce insulin.Furthermore,many of these overweight people live in rich countries (Reading).Second, some women can get Type 2 diabetes from pregnancy and childbirth if the babies weight more than 4.1 kilos when they are born. This is called “gestational diabetes” (Reading).Third,there are some genetic cause for Type 1 and 2. For instance, 45% to 80% of people with Type 2 have parents that have the same problem.Actually, Type 2 has stronger genetic factor than Type 1 (Reading).

Diabetes has many negative effects on the body.First of all, people with Type 2 diabetes often do not even know they have because the symptoms are not clear. For example, people may be tired, thirsty, hungry and have to go to the bathroom a lot because the person’s kidneys are trying to get rid of the glucose. However,they lose too much water and the body does not get enough nutrition (Reading). Second, people with diabetes can have problems with their vision and high blood pressure, which is very dangerous (Reading). Third, if it is left untreated, diabetes can lead to very serious health problems such as kidney damage and heart disease, which kills many people (Reading).

To conclude,there are several causes ofdiabetes.For example,type 2 diabetes is the most common and is caused by poor lifestyle choices such as eating habits and lack of exercise. Furthermore,pregnant women and genetic factors are also causes of diabetes.As a result, diabetes has serious medical consequences.For instance,people often feel tired, thirsty, hungry, and they must go to the bathroom often. Also, without medical attention, diabetes may result in vision problems, kidney damage and heart disease. Finally,I hope that scientists find a cure for this terrible disease in the future.

Back pain
back_hamda.jpg

Back pain is one of the most wide spread physical problems. Most people suffering from back pain usually take medicine to reduce the pain, but never disappears. Every year many patients visit the doctor to ask about backache. Moreover, today the number of the people that have back pain are rising more quickly over recent years than that of any other common disability (Reading1). In this essay, I ‘am going to talk about effects and causes for back pain.


There are many causes for backache. It is most common among the 45-64 age group. One of the causes, is that when you sit a long time in a wrong way or sometimes when you do tiring activity (Reading). Moreover, people who have overweight they also have back pain, because of the weight. Also they cannot walk a lot and make exercises they have to make diet to reduce back pain (Reading). Until today the doctors didn’t found treatment of the disease. Furthermore, they don’t know the main reason for backache. On the other hand, sometimes beds are not convenient so that will raises the number (Reading).


Back pain has many negative effects on the body. First of all, people with back pain cannot walk a lot. Also they do not sleep comfortably. They suffer from severe pain. For instance, when they visit the doctor, the doctor just gives them analgesics for pain. However, back pain can also make family tension. For example, someone cannot get out of bed or has to spend time in hospital it puts a lot of stress on other family members (Reading2).


In conclusion, there are several causes of back pain. When we feel tired we should not ignore the pain, and we should to see the doctor at the earliest opportunity: in extreme circumstance, it could our life (Reading2). Finally, I hope that scientist find a cure for this terrible disease in the future.






Botulism

Botulism is a muscle-paralyzing disease (Reading). The main cause for this disease is a toxin that is made by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Also the bacteria is not always dangerous. However, there are three main types of botulism. In this essay, I will discuss some of the causes and effects of botulism.


There are many causes of botulism. First of all, Clostridium botulinum is usually found in the soil. It can live for a long time. The bacteria can get into food just when there is no Oxygen for food. People should swallow the food that has not been cooked very well (Reading). On the other hand, infants need to eat food that contains the bacteria. Also, botulism does not spread from one person to another. Secondly, I can say that this bacteria is the main cause and the other cause is maybe Genetic. Furthermore, many symptoms for example, food borne and wound botulism produce symptoms that affect the nervous system (Reading).


From the article, we can say that there is variety of affects. Such as blurred or double vision, dry mouth, difficulty swallowing, muscle weakness, muscle paralysis and slurred speech. Also, sometimes it causes respiratory paralysis which can make the person cannot breath on his or her own. Moreover, possible cause of death. Actually people should visit the doctor when they feel symptoms that will help them to reduce the disease (Reading).


In conclusion, most diseases in the world have several causes and effects. And this disease botulism spreads very quicly but not from person to person. Also, we have to protect ourselves. For instance, Botulism is a very serious disease. It can be deadly if not treated. Furthermore we can prevent botulism by follow strict hygiene procedures (Reading). In my opinion if we get tired or sick we have to visit the doctor and eat the medicine to avoid the disease.

Over 186,579,300 people migrate from their countries (Wikipedia). A lot of people from all over the world migrate to other countries for several reasons. Most of them come from poor countries, such as India, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Philippines. In this essay, I will discuss the causes and effects of migration.

There are many causes of migration. First of all, many people migrate to find a good job. For example, Nandie –interviewee 25 years old- migrated from Philippines to UAE to find a good job. He left his country to get money for his family. Second, many young people migrate to learn and complete their higher education. For instance, there are many foreigners migrate to the UAE, and they join the universities. They get high certificates, which help them to find jobs. Finally, a lot of people travel because of political reasons. For example, many people from Palestine and Iraq migrate because of the wars in their countries.

On the other hand, there are several effects of migration. Some of these effects are negative and others are positive. Firstly, the positive things are that in the UAE they have high salary compare to their countries. Moreover, most of them have safe and comfortable place to live. For instance, the companies bring them with contracts which protect their rights. Secondly, there are several disadvantages of migration on the Immigrants. Sometimes they need their families, and they feel like homesick. Also, some of them scared of living with strange people. For instance, some of the home maid when they arrive to UAE, they escaped without any reason. Finally, migration affects the population in the country. For example, local people in the UAE are less than 15%.

To sum up, there are many causes and effects of migration. The causes are finding a good job, safe life and better education. In contrast, there are negative and positive effects. The positive effects include high salary and comfortable place to live. The negative effects include homesick, alienationand fear.In my opinion, we must respect immigrants who migrate to our country, because they will not travel if they don’t have a need there.



The common cold
cold.jpg
There are many disease spread around the world. The most familiar illness is “the common cold”. In addition, there are several websites that we can get information about it, such as the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety. These websites are very reliable sites. Both of them are run by government agencies. Also, there is an other website for parents at kidshealth.org, It has won awards(Reading). In this essay I will discuss the causes and effects of the common cold disease.

There are a number of causes of the common cold disease. Firstly, there are more than 200 cold viruses(Reading). These viruses are called “rhinoviruses”(Reading). And, are caused by viruses. For example, if somebody eats or touches after a sick person the viruses will infect them. Viruses are found in doors, public telephones, chairs, or tables, even money(Reading). Moreover, the viruses can live for 3 hours, so, when we touch these infected things then touch our eyes or our nose, and we become infected (Reading). Secondly, “we get more colds when it is cold outside or if the air conditioning is on too much”. For instance, people stay in the someplace when it is cold outside. We close our windows, doors and breath, the same our as other people (Reading). “when the air is dry, viruses can easily infect us”, so, we get cold very easily(Reading).

The common cold has many negative effects on our body. Firstly, the common cold affects the upper respiratory tract which are nose, root and lungs. We get cold when these are infected (Reading). Secondly, people who have this illness feel very tired and do not have energy. The symptoms are difficulty breathing, blocked noses, sore throat, sneezing and coughing. However, they may also have a headache, a slight fever, aches and pains, watering eyes, and a loss of appetite (Reading). Furthermore, “these symptoms can last anywhere between a few days and two weeks” (Reading).

To conclude, all diseases have several causes and effects. The common cold has two causes. First, viruses are called “rhinoviruses”. There are more than 200 cold viruses. Second, air conditioners can infect us. Using air conditioners dries the air and our noses and dry noses means viruses infect us. In my opinion, if you have headache, muscle aches, or fever, you should go and see a doctor, stay at home and get a rest.




Fast food
fast.jpg

People have become busier and our life is running faster than before. Because of that, eating habits changed during the last years. Teenagers and workers are the most biggest category of people who consume fast food such as McDonalds , KFC and Pizza Hut. They are example of the many multinational companies that have experienced a spread all over the world. In this essay , I am going to talk about the causes and the effects of fast food.


There are a number of bad effects that fast food can cause. First, fast food can lead to obesity. The number of fast food restaurants are related to the percentage of obesity in the countries. “In 2002, the World Heart Federation estimated that about one billion people in the world were dangerously fat”. Also fast food can produce saturated fats which accumulate in un wanted places, which will lead to many diseases such as shortness of breath, an increase of cholesterol and heart diseases. Furthermore, the appearance of fast food threatened the traditional food popularity(Reading). “there is a fear that we will lose local food, traditional dishes and eating habits”(Reading).


There are several causes of why people prefer fast food. First, one of these reasons that it is easy to order it. For example, if you are a worker, you get back from work tired and you don’t have enough energy to cook a meal for yourself, so you will choose the easiest way to eat, which will be order from a fast food restaurant. Second, it is cheaper for a lot of people. For example, a meal from Macdonald’s for one person can cost about 10 to 20 Dh, but a meal from Hatam restaurant can cost more than 90 Dh each person. Also, fast food has a lot of different flavors that make it more tasty than home cook food. “ In addition, they also have an association with youth. As a result of these factors, they are very popular with teenagers students and families with young children (reading).


To conclude, there are several causes why people prefer fast food. For example, if a worker comes back from work tired, , he will not have enough energy to cook , so he will prefer to order from a fast food restaurant . Because of this reason , the percentage of obesity increase in a lot of countries . In addition, fast food have become more popular and the people seem to forget that fast food contains saturated fat . Also , the reason that makes people love it more is because it is not very expensive . Finlay, I hope you are more educated about fast food.





Globalization
globalization-hands-pic.jpg
Globalization is effecting our lifestyle culture in many ways. And the main reason is the development in the world. The western countries and GCC countries became more connected. Therefore our culture has been affected through media. “The problem is that a lot of today’s culture change encourages sameness, not difference” (Reading). In this essay I will discuss some of the causes and effects of the globalization.


There are many different causes of globalization in the world. The first and main cause is the media. “Through the media, the modern world has been transformed into one world. Globalization has no nationality. This new culture is acting against national identities” said Dr.Mashin Jassim Almansawi (reading). Secondly, wealthy countries can produce new products and export to other countries such as movies, television programs , music and computer software. That’s why their culture will be spread.


There are several effects of globalization. Firstly, it affects our national identity because people nowadays are replacing traditional clothes with jeans and t-shirt. Second, it effects our mother language. That’s why “in South Korea, movie theaters have to show at least 40% local films by law”(Reading). Moreover, people in our country talk with their friends in English. In addition, in Europe there is a minimum number of television shows to be from Europe(Reading).


To sum up, there are many causes of globalization. First, development and this is the main causes. Second, the influence of media on people culture(Reading). Also there are many effects. First, learning new languages and knowing the world recent news which is a positive point. Second, the fear of losing national identity. In my opinion, if people hold on their culture they won’t lose it.
