From 1975 to 2010, the mortality of breast cancer declined from 32 per 100,000 per year to 21 per 100,000 per year (34%). At the same time, the incidence increased by 30%, in particular for localized breast
I found this very intriguing. I was adopted and I don’t think I can say I have ever felt a loss of myself or debated whether my birth mother or mother was my real mother. I believe that the woman who raised me is my real mother. You said, “When the child loses its mother, it also loses its sense of self. The child grows up feeling empty,…[Read more]
I found this entry very interesting. I knew that veganism benefitted your diet but I didn’t know that consuming less animals products also helps improve your mood and lower stress levels. I find that very interesting. I also enjoyed reading about the health risks that follow veganism as well. I agree that many vegans miss out on foods…[Read more]
For my research project I have been researching why the mortality rate for breast cancer has lowered so much. From 1975-2010, the mortality of breast cancer declined from 32 per 100,000 per year to 21 per 100,000
This is a very uplifting and happy post Emma! I have had many of my family friends receive breast cancer, and it seems that all of them have beaten it. What about other cancers? Is the mortality rate improving for them too? Great post!
This is amazing, wonderful news! I didn’t know any of this and your post really excited me! Thank you for taking the time to post this on youth voices because if you hadn’t I wouldn’t have learned this exciting information for women. Keep up the awesome work, and keep researching deeper into this topic because I feel like you could go really deep into this and maybe even make something of it!
I really enjoyed reading this! It is great to hear that more and more people are surviving breast cancer. I found it interesting that the survival rate isn’t increasing because of preventative measures, it’s because of improvement in treatments. I hope we will see progress like this for other cancers as well!
You are very brave to do research on such a hot topic like this. I think your paper will be very interesting and will leave a lot of your viewers enlightened on what really goes on in prison. No one really cares about inmates solely because they are in prison. I am glad you are bringing light to the situation. Good luck on your paper, I…[Read more]
I really enjoyed reading this post. I found it very interesting. I always knew that veganism was good for you I just didn’t know it was better for you than a western style diet. I can’t wait to read more of your posts! Good luck on the rest of your research.
Dietitians and nutritionists evaluate the health of their clients. Based on their findings, dietitians and nutritionists advise clients on which foods to eat—and those foods to avoid—to improve their hea
Christmas is a time of giving and receiving. Many people find both activities difficult, not least because presents are imbued with meaning. It is not only a problem of to whom one gives presents or not, and/or
Trevor and Ryan’s comments are irrelevant your actual post. I appreciate your post on Christmas tradition. It’s nice to see how you enjoy tradition and really understand the meaning of family, including family tradition. I have many christmas traditions as well with my family. Sometimes we overlook the true meaning of Christmas and…[Read more]
I enjoyed this poem. I feel like there was a deeper meaning behind this than what meets the eye. I loved how you talked about the journey of coral and how it ended up on shore and ended it’s journey. It was well written.
This is a very well written post. I am also a senior who is applying to colleges and it is unfortunate that the price of a school os what is going to determine where I go. College is so expensive and I believe the price need to be lowered. For a nation that values education so much, why are they making us pay so much for it. One of our human…[Read more]
This is a very inspirational and strong poem. It addresses a very important issue of today’s age. I agree with everything you said. I have grown up in catholic school all my life. In middle school, we needed our skirts to be past our knees in fear of looking innapropriate. Now, in my high school, we had our skorts taken away for the reason of them…[Read more]
I really like how you brought up two important issues in this letter. It is clear you are passionate about both. I like the things you said about immigration. It is a very important issue that needs to be addressed. I agree with everything you said. Also, I really liked how you brought up terrorism. It is a serious problem that I believe needs…[Read more]
I am pro-choice but am perfectly fine with people stating their opinions on abortions especially since it is such a hot topic in society today. However, one comment you said I MUST comment on. “But once a woman thinks of her own comfort over the life of her child, we are just okay with her killing it.” I find this extremely disturbing. How…[Read more]
I was quite inspired by this post. I agree that domestic violence against women is at an all time high right now. I find it intriguing that with all the rape cases that are on the news that there isn’t much being done about the issue. I think we need to find a solution to end domestic violence against women and men for that matter. Domestic…[Read more]
I strongly agree with you on this topic. I am a vegetarian because I don’t believe animals should be killed for food, clothes, etc. just because they are not people. A lot of animals in this world are nearing extinction because of mankind’s “needs” for clothes and such. They should be treated fairly. We have human rights, so they…[Read more]
I agree with everything you said. The gender wage gap is a very big issue in society today. It does need to be fixed. It is unfair and unjust that women are paid less than men. one thing I found interesting that you said is that women who achieve the same jobs as men still get paid less. This was a great post.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
