    Unhealthy food

    In the article, “ Are Warning Labels on Unhealthy Foods a Good Idea?” ( (McGraw Hill) I learned that since the 1980 the obesity rates have doubled in at least 73 countries, this is due to the high consumption...

    • Dear, Monica 

      I find the statistics you provided in your discussion post “unhealthy food” fascinating. I can not fathom how unhealthy people are becoming around the world. I really like how you articulated your information in a very coherent manner. 

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “The health of populations is more important than anything else.” I think this is something many should take into consideration given the fact that we are the future and what will determine the well-being of the world, so intoxicating our population isn’t right. 

      Thank you for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because of your interesting take on things. Not to mention how well you explain things!


  • Dear Maria,

    I am impressed by your post, ” Covid vaccines for young children,” because I think it is important to talk about the covid vaccines for childrens. I think it’s really important to parents to know about this, and get to know the benefits this may provide to their children’s.

    Saving the planet

    In the article, “ A teen’s plan to Save a Warning planet”(Upfront) I learned that Felix Finkbeiner started planting plants when he was in elementary school, he said that it was a project called “ climate change.” After his...

    • Dear Monica:
      I am impressed by your post “Saving the Planet” because of how the lack of trees is affecting us and also how much is needed on the planet. Also, it’s a reality that we need to think more about our planet because is where we live and where all the people we love life too.

      One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is “ Trees alone can’t solve that climate crisis.” I think this is so real because they have some advantage for us but they can’t make everything for us. We need to make something to help the environment and also help where we live.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because, is so interesting the post that you share with us. I think we need to look more on the things that are happening around us.

    • Planting over a trillion trees and it blossomed from one guy and his classmates is impressive. It’s a good to start to hopefully help climate chance. We need to do a lot more and hopefully people will get involved just like they did with this.

    • I think it’s great to see how some man’s individual work blossomed to make a huge difference in the world. It really goes to show how even the smallest thing we do has the potential to make a huge difference.

    • I liked all the information that you provided in this post. This is an increasingly important issue the longer it goes on and having projects like these are so critical in the path to helping climate change.

    • This is really inspiring actually because when you think of climate change it’s always used in a negative tone. Having a brighter side to climate change (meaning changing it for good) is a new outlook that’s refreshing. To hear that Felix has done it since elementary school and also got his friends too do it is great.

  • Monica commented on the post, Cell Phone Horns

    Dear Maria,
    I am impressed by your post “Cell Phone Horns” because it shows how much the cell phone can cause damage. I think It’s common on us looking down at our phones.

    One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is; ” It described a certain deformity that can occur in young people’s’ skills when they spend too much time looking d…Read More
