The Effect of Social Media on Mental Health & Personality: Lalit Mohan Pant, Rekha Joshi
The media constantly bombard us with news of health hazards lurking in our everyday lives. But many of these hazards turn out to have been greatly overblown. According to author and epidemiologist Geoffrey C. Kabat, this hyping of low-level environmental hazards leads to needless anxiety and confusion on the part of the public as to which exposures have important effects on health and which are likely to have minimal or no effect. Kabat approaches health scares as ´´social facts´´ and shows that a variety of factors can contribute to the inflating of a hazard. These include skewed reporting by the media, but also, surprisingly, the actions of researchers who may emphasize certain findings while ignoring others, regulatory and health agencies eager to show their responsiveness to the health concerns of the public, politicians, and advocates with a stake in a particular outcome. By means of four case studies, Kabat demonstrates how a powerful confluence of interests can lead to overstating or distorting the scientific evidence. He considers the health risks of pollutants such as DDT as a cause of breast cancer, electromagnetic fields from power lines, radon within residences, and secondhand tobacco smoke. Tracing the trajectory of each of these hazards from its initial emergence up to the present, Kabat shows how publication of more rigorous studies and critical assessments ultimately helped put the hazard in perspective. 1.

Global Perspectives on Health Communication in the Age of Social Media:
´´Ask me how I can help you live a healthier lifestyle.´´ I don´t see anyone having to go into Wal-Mart or GNC and ask employees how to lose weight or which type of fan will save the most electricity and last the longest. I tackle an opinionated view of the company Herbalife with personal-experience views and why I believe it should be classified as a pyramid scheme. I respect the company, and all comments made have not been approved by Herbalife and are not necessarily true until the company has been found guilty of my view in a court of law. I am certified by the National Federation of Professional Trainers and have recertified successfully for over three years. My certification number is 45582. I have a passion for health and make it a discipline to work out and learn new fitness trends every day. This article tackles some of the myths and scrutiny that Herbalife has been under by the media and other analysts. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Trevor Clinger.

From New York Times best-selling author Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., comes a science-based call for the immediate removal of the dangerous mercury-containing preservative Thimerosal from vaccines. Over a decade ago, following a sharp rise in developmental disorders such as autism and ADHD, the mercury-containing preservative Thimerosal was widely believed to have been eliminated from vaccine supplies in the United States and abroad. However, dangerous quantities of Thimerosal continue to be used, posing a significant threat to public health and leading to a crisis of faith in vaccine safety. In this groundbreaking audiobook, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., examines the research literature on Thimerosal and makes a very clear statement about its potentially dangerous effects. In the past, the CDC, FDA, NIH, and AAP, as well as the US Congress, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the US Department of Agriculture, the European Medicines Agency, and the California Environmental Protection Agency have expressed concerns over the use of Thimerosal in vaccines. But despite the many voices calling for action, the media and policy makers have repeatedly failed to adequately address the issue. Now, with Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak, the science supporting the elimination of this toxic chemical from the world´s vaccine supplies, and its replacement with already available safer alternatives, is all in one place. Making this change should increase vaccination rates by restoring the trust of concerned parents in the vaccine program - a program that is so vitally important to public health. 1.
