... Population Action International, Projecting Population, Projecting Climate Change: Population in IPCC Scenarios. HUMAN POPULATION GROWTH AND CLIMATE CHANGE. The largest single threat to the ecology and biodiversity of the planet in the decades to come will be global climate disruption due to the buildup of human-generated greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. A 2009 study of the relationship between population growth and global warming determined that the carbon legacy of just one child can produce 20 times more greenhouse gas than a person will save by driving a high-mileage car, recycling, using energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs, etc. Each child born in the United States will add about 9,441 metric tons of carbon dioxide to the carbon legacy of an average parent. Under current conditions, a child born in the United States will be responsible for almost seven times the carbon emissions of a child born in China and 168 times the impact of a child born in Bangladesh. Thus a large share of China s ...

*  Population ecology
... is the field of ecology that focuses on the factors that affect the population size of a given organism, population growth rate, and spatial dispersion of individuals with populations. Factors affecting population size The only factors that can alter population sizes are births, deaths, immigration, and emigration. Factors affecting population growth rates Population growth rates are affected by interactions with both the abiotic and biotic environment. Models of population growth Population ecologists have developed mathematical models to study the growth of populations. The simplest model of population growth is the exponential growth model which assumes that the per capita growth rate the change in population size/time/individual is constant. The logistic growth model is a more realistic model because it allows the per capita growth rate to vary with population size. The carrying capacity, the population size at which the population growth rate equals zero, is reached when the per capita birth rate # ...

... The 'Population and Community Development Association' PDA is a non-governmental organization in Thailand. Its goal is to reduce poverty through both development initiatives and family planning programs. Originally called the Community-Based Family Planning Service, it was founded by Mechai Viravaidya in 1974. 1 In the early 1970s, Viravaidya was the Minister of Industry but became frustrated with the government’s inability to implement a national family planning policy. In his work with the government, he identified a direct correlation between Thailand’s poverty and population growth. 2 His immediate concern was the high population growth rate of 3.2%, which equated to approximately seven children per family. 3 The population growth rate was an increasing concern for Thailand and Mechai Viravaidya because high growth rates restricted Thailand's ability to provide for its entire population and improve living conditions. Today, Thailand’s population growth rate is only 0.566%. 4 The reduction in populati...

*  Food Race
... American environmental author Daniel Quinn coined the term 'Food Race' by analogy to the Cold War 's " nuclear arms race " to describe an understanding of the current overpopulation emergency as a perpetually escalating crisis between growing human population and growing food production, fueled by the latter. Quinn argues that as the worldwide human population increases, the typical international response is to more intensely produce and distribute food to feed these greater numbers of people. However, assuming that population increases according to increased food availability, Quinn argues that this response only ends up leading to an even larger population and thus greater starvation in the end. Therefore, Quinn's clear solution to the Food Race — to stop producing so much food — is not generally a common-sense or intuitive response; instead, it derives from seemingly counter-intuitive or "outside-the-box" thinking. Quinn compared this to the arms race in the Cold War, noting that any increase in food ...

Population dynamics is determined by the difference between the stationary fertility rate and the exogenous mortality rate: if this is positive population size indefinitely increases, otherwise it reaches a stationary level, which can be positive if the difference is null or null if it is negative. We show that in our model economy, under certain parametric conditions, the repugnant conclusion holds; in particular, this happens when consumption growth is negative and the stationary fertility rate is higher than the exogenous mortality rate.

The breadth of transmission will continue to increase. The food and water supply of the world will become increasingly precious. Indeed, while more than a billion inhabitants now live without adequate clean water, and more than two billion without adequate sanitation, these numbers will increase. Food production will become more and more centralized as we struggle to feed our population, and this will make the food supply increasingly vulnerable to contamination.

Never mind the fact that Baby boomers have been dubbed the Healthiest Generation, since they have the longest life expectancy of any previous generation, and that they were able to exploit advances in medical care and reap the benefits of public health campaigns highlighting the dangers of smoking and unhealthy diets.

Print. 6 comments. Oil Gas. Oil Industry and Fracking Could Help Solve Looming Global Water Crisis. By Jared Anderson on October 08, 2013 at 12:00 PM. Water wars in the western US and around the world are predicted with increasing frequency as climate fears grow, debilitating droughts persist and human population growth climbs steadily higher. Concerns about fresh water supplies coming under pressure and the increasing cost of supplying fresh water to people, crops and livestock seem to grow more urgent every day. But mitigating technology is being funded and developed – by what may at first appear an unlikely source – the oil and gas industry. Hydraulic fracturing – as its name suggests – is a water-intensive industrial process that requires increasing volumes as companies drill greater numbers of wells needed to maintain and increase production levels. At the same time, these often horizontal wells are being drilled with longer lateral sections and greater numbers of frack stages, as companies continu...

← what is education. Survival of Life on Earth →. Population Growth. Posted on. January 25, 2010 by. grandad. The This Day Tonight program on the 25th January, had a piece on this subject which I feel inclined to comment upon as follows. It would appear that the population problem is really matter of having an available area for expansion whilst keeping the needed space to support that population within the confines of a finite fixed area without destroying the environment for all other life forms. We have evolved to a degree where we are now the first life form that has the option of controlling our reproduction or breeding our selves to extinction. Mr Rudd has formed the opinion that we will be better off with a bigger population. This is based on the impossible belief that we can have everlasting growth; which would need everlasting growth of population. Since there is only a finite space available, adoption of a policy of everlasting growth will inevitably lead to our extinction as a species. It is not no...

Anyone born from 1945 to 1965 should get a one-time blood test to see if they have the liver-destroying virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in draft recommendations issued Friday. Baby boomers account for more than 2 million of the 3.2 million Americans infected with the blood-borne virus. It can take decades to cause liver damage, and many people don’t know they’re infected. CDC officials believe the new measure could lead 800,000 more baby boomers to get treatment and could save more than 120,000 lives. “The CDC views hepatitis C as an unrecognized health crisis for the country, and we believe the time is now for a bold response,” ...

*  Baby Boomers Should Be Screened For Hepatitis C
... Preventive Services Task Force released a new recommendation urging baby boomers, people born between 1945 and 1965, to be screened at least once in adulthood for Hepatitis C HCV. The announcement comes after it was discovered that many cases of HCV in adults – a serious viral infection that predisposes people to liver disease, including severe scarring and liver cancer – are found in people born during those two decades. The majority of these cases are found in baby boomers. The limitation of screening based on risk factors – and therefore the need to screen all adults – is that some people without any identifiable risk factors test positive for HCV antibodies. The virus is the number one reason that adults require liver transplants, and it has been linked to a large portion of new cases of aggressive liver cancer hepatocellular carcinoma. While treatment decreases the risk of liver scarring and cancer dramatically, physicians are looking to improve these numbers by using exciting, new treatments that h...

New York State has public reporting at the hospital and physician levels on outcomes from both CABG surgery and coronary angioplasty, and the reporting system is directed by a Cardiac Advisory Committee which is authorized to require plans of correction for under-performing programs, which can be closed if they continue to under-perform. Only "low-risk" patients are eligible for coronary angiography or angioplasty at hospitals without surgical back up and all high risk angiography and angioplasty is done at facilities with cardiac surgery programs....

« Making Psychogeography Maps. Rethinking Maps ». 1923 Patented Cartogram July 9, 2009 by John Krygier. Stop making cartograms. At least until permission is granted from the chap who holds the patent on them. Karl Karsten’s “population projection” was published in his book Charts and Graphs 1923 and patented in 1925. As with the 1911 “Apportioinment Map” noted in an earlier post, the term “cartogram” was not used by Karsten to describe this creation. He called it the “Population Projection.”. Curiously, it’s claimed that Karsten also invented the hedge fund. But back to maps. Karsten’s patent, #1,556, 609, October 13, 1925 claimed rights to. …a map of a plurality of territories, having their boundary lines so distorted as to make their included areas represent graphically the relative importance of a given factor other than land area of one area with respect to another area, the boundaries being distorted without losing their familiar and significant features….

... el. File photo of elderly couples viewing the ocean and waves along the beach in La Jolla Mike Blake, Reuters. Most say mortality will continue to decline and people will live longer. Baby boomers, now between 48 and 67 years old, have already shown a greater propensity to suicide than previous generations, according to a data analysis from researchers at Rutgers University and Emory University. The post-war baby boom generation does have higher rates of cancer at younger ages than the previous generation, the National Cancer Institute reported. In 2009, people 45 to 59 years old saw roughly 570 cases of cancer per 100,000 people. By 2040, obesity will reduce life expectancy by 0.733 percent for men, and 0.677 percent for women, according to Preston. And Chris Ruhm, a professor of public policy and economics at the University of Virginia, sees another shoe ready to drop: severe obesity. He expects high rates of obesity to be a drag on life expectancy and severe or morbid obesity, even in the baby boom gen...

Most baby boomers say they get some aerobic exercise, the kind that revs up your heart rate, at least once a week. Fact Box Q: What are the biggest health concerns among boomers. Based on calculation of body mass index from self-reported height and weight, roughly a third of the baby boomers polled are obese, compared with about a quarter of both older and younger responders. Only half of the obese boomers say they are are regularly exercising. An additional 36 percent of boomers are overweight, though not obese.

But at least these days, involved families will consider making changes when they identify deficiencies in a nursing home’s care, are dissatisfied with placements made during hasty hospital-discharge planning or see patient abuse. At the Gerontological Society of America’s GSA 65th annual scientific meeting last month, presentations from experts on caregivers, longevity, long-term care and optimal aging were particularly poignant for baby boomers. Reducing the trauma of change One concern about making a nursing home change is the perception of “transfer trauma.” Robert L.

Rather, the new medium-fertility or best-guess scenario suggests the most likely outcome is that world could gain more than 10 million people in the year 2100 and close the century at 10.9 billion. The new projections suggest a global population of 9.6 billion by 2050 about 700 million people more than the 8.9 billion the UN Population Division had projected for 2050 just 10 years ago. Although the biggest surprise in the report came from the projections of faster future population growth than had been expected, these numbers actually have their roots in a surprise about the present: Women in many developing countries are having more children today than UN demographers previously thought. Although the reasons behind the higher-than-expected fertility in many countries are not fully understood, they correlate well with recent government reluctance to give priority to and fund family planning services in some of the world s poorest countries.

Ultimately, of course, ecocide will only be avoided if we stop doing the things that are causing it. And the main thing we are doing that is causing it – is growing in numbers in the absence of predators; consuming exponentially-increasing amounts of food and water; and producing exponentially-increasing amounts of waste. This is no idle piece of misanthropic rhetoric – it is a cold hard fact. Louise Gray published a short article on the Telegraph  website yesterday, in which she cites Sir David Attenborough as having described humans as a plague on the Earth that need to be controlled by limiting population growth . This has attracted an  an awful lot of attention and comment; most of it negative; and some of it very unpleasant. What I find most astonishing is the inability of so many admittedly-self-selected people to appreciate the difference between ideology and science.  Furthermore, despite little evidence of scientific training in many of their comments, they seem content to accuse Attenboro...

Times Higher Education. World University Rankings By subject News About Student. Register. World University Rankings news. When, for example, UK student numbers dipped during the 1950s, it had as much to do with low birth rates in the 1930s as with education policy in a period of austerity. Importantly, changes in population can also affect young people’s chances of getting into university. In England we have recently seen a slowdown in the expansion of student numbers but this has not necessarily greatly reduced the opportunities open to university applicants: a sharp fall in the number of babies born 18 years ago limited the pool of young people who might have applied last year. The growing number of international students will also help to accelerate this global trend towards declining fertility. This is another reason why young people will become more precious. Ageing is contributing to the rising global population: as there are more of us around for longer, the growing population count is not made up sol...

Stocking of captive-bred fish can cause long-term population decline and gene pool replacement: predictions from a population dynamics model incorporating density-dependent mortality. Affiliated with Department of Fish Ecology and Evolution, Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology EAWAG , Center of Ecology, Evolution and Biogeochemistry. Abstract Releasing captive-bred fish into natural environments stocking is common in fisheries worldwide. Using a population dynamics model that takes into account a density-dependent recruitment, a gene responsible for the fitness difference between wild and captive-bred fish, and hybridization between them, we show that there is little or no contribution of recurrent stocking to the stock enhancement without a replacement of the wild gene pool by the captive-bred gene pool.

During the last centuries, the breeding range of the great snipe Gallinago media has declined dramatically in the western part of its distribution. To examine present population dynamics in the Scandinavian mountains, we collected and analysed a 19-year time series of counts of great snipe males at leks in central Norway, 1987–2005. 2 The population showed large annual fluctuations in the number of males displaying at lek sites range 45–90 males at the peak of the mating season, but no overall trend. 3 We detected presence of direct density-dependent mechanisms regulating this popula...

Instead, the paper focuses on the age and period dimensions and derives an initial description of the matrix's structure with regard to changes only in those 2 directions. This 2-dimensional description is then augmented by a consideration of residual patterns that seem clearly linked to cohorts. The use of a model that is asymmetric in age, period, and cohort is just...

*  Matrix population models
... Population models are used in population ecology to model the dynamics of wildlife or human populations. 'Matrix population models' are a specific type of population model that uses matrix algebra. N t+1 = abundance at time t+1 N t = abundance at time t B = number of births within the population between N t and N t+1 D = number of deaths within the population between N t and N t+1 I = number of individuals immigrating into the population between N t and N t+1 E = number of individuals emigrating from the population between N t and N t+1. Estimates of B might be obtained via a ratio of immatures to adults soon after the breeding season, R i. Number of deaths can be obtained by estimating annual survival probability, usually via mark and recapture methods, then multipling present abundance and survival rate. For added simplicity it may help to think of time t as the end of the breeding season in year t and to imagine that one is studying a species that has only one discrete breeding season per year. : N {t...

High population density can cause increased competition for resources while low population density can cause problems with finding mates and inbreeding. In studying population ecology a common measurement that is made of a population in a particular area is what is known as population density and that is simply what is the number of organisms in a particular area divided by that area.

*  Threshold host density
'Threshold host density N T ', in the context of wildlife disease ecology, refers to the concentration of a population of a particular organism as it relates to disease. Specifically, the threshold host density N T of a species refers to the minimum concentration of individuals necessary to sustain a given disease within a population. 1 Threshold host density N T only applies to density dependent diseases, where there is an "aggregation of risk" to the host in either high host density or low host density patches. When low host density causes an increase in incidence of parasitism or disease, this is known as inverse host density dependence, whereas when incidence of parasitism or disease is elevated in high host density conditions, it is known as direct host density dependence. Host density independent diseases show no correlation between the concentration of a given host population and the incidence of a particular disease.

*  Epizootic
... In epizoology, an 'epizootic' from Greek : 'epi-' upon + 'zoon' animal is a disease event in a nonhuman animal population, analogous to an epidemic in humans. An epizootic may be: restricted to a specific locale an " outbreak ", general an "'epizootic'" or widespread " panzootic ". High population density is a major contributing factor to epizootics. Aquaculture is an industry sometimes plagued by disease because of the large number of fish confined to a small area. Defining an epizootic can be subjective; it is based upon the number of new cases in a given animal population, during a given period, and must be judged to be a rate that substantially exceeds what is expected based on recent experience 'i.e.' a sharp elevation in the incidence rate. Because it is based on what is "expected" or thought normal, a few cases of a very rare disease like a TSE outbreak in a cervid population might be classified as an "epizootic", while many cases of a common disease like lymphocystis in esocids would not.

Food Race: American environmental author Daniel Quinn coined the term Food Race (by analogy to the Cold War's "nuclear arms race") to describe an understanding of the current overpopulation emergency as a perpetually escalating crisis between growing human population and growing food production, fueled by the latter. Quinn argues that as the worldwide human population increases, the typical international response is to more intensely produce and distribute food to feed these greater numbers of people.Matrix population models: Population models are used in population ecology to model the dynamics of wildlife or human populations.

(1/431) Evolution by small steps and rugged landscapes in the RNA virus phi6.

Fisher's geometric model of adaptive evolution argues that adaptive evolution should generally result from the substitution of many mutations of small effect because advantageous mutations of small effect should be more common than those of large effect. However, evidence for both evolution by small steps and for Fisher's model has been mixed. Here we report supporting results from a new experimental test of the model. We subjected the bacteriophage phi6 to intensified genetic drift in small populations and caused viral fitness to decline through the accumulation of a deleterious mutation. We then propagated the mutated virus at a range of larger population sizes and allowed fitness to recover by natural selection. Although fitness declined in one large step, it was usually recovered in smaller steps. More importantly, step size during recovery was smaller with decreasing size of the recovery population. These results confirm Fisher's main prediction that advantageous mutations of small effect should be more common. We also show that the advantageous mutations of small effect are compensatory mutations whose advantage is conditional (epistatic) on the presence of the deleterious mutation, in which case the adaptive landscape of phi6 is likely to be very rugged.  (+info)

(2/431) Declining survival probability threatens the North Atlantic right whale.

The North Atlantic northern right whale (Eubalaena glacialis) is considered the most endangered large whale species. Its population has recovered only slowly since the cessation of commercial whaling and numbers about 300 individuals. We applied mark-recapture statistics to a catalog of photographically identified individuals to obtain the first statistically rigorous estimates of survival probability for this population. Crude survival decreased from about 0.99 per year in 1980 to about 0.94 in 1994. We combined this survival trend with a reported decrease in reproductive rate into a branching process model to compute population growth rate and extinction probability. Population growth rate declined from about 1. 053 in 1980 to about 0.976 in 1994. Under current conditions the population is doomed to extinction; an upper bound on the expected time to extinction is 191 years. The most effective way to improve the prospects of the population is to reduce mortality. The right whale is at risk from entanglement in fishing gear and from collisions with ships. Reducing this human-caused mortality is essential to the viability of this population.  (+info)

(3/431) Awareness of and attitude of elderly subjects regarding health care and welfare in rapidly ageing population in Japan.

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to obtain information on the degree of knowledge and understanding about the current systems of health care and welfare held by the elderly, in order to achieve comprehensiveness in family practice. METHOD: We conducted a study on the awareness of healthy elderly persons by direct interview. The study was carried out in Kuni Village in a remote mountainous region in Japan, where the elderly population accounts for 24.8% of the total population. The subjects were self-dependent in their daily living activities and were aged 65 years and older. RESULTS: The subjects' knowledge of health care and welfare systems was generally good, and the degree of their utilization of these systems was also good. But 83.3% of those who did not want to utilize the welfare system indicated their preference to depend on their family for support. CONCLUSION: Family physicians must endeavour to offer comprehensive care to their patients by including these systems for rapidly ageing communities.  (+info)

A new approach to illustrating and analysing health status is presented which allows comparisons of various aspects of health in a population at different times and in different populations during given periods. Both quantitative and qualitative elements can be represented, the impact of interventions can be monitored, and the extent to which objectives are achieved can be assessed. The practical application of the approach is demonstrated with reference to the health profiles to Tunisia in 1966 and 1994.  (+info)

(5/431) Health of the elderly in a community in transition: a survey in Thiruvananthapuram City, Kerala, India.

Results of a survey to assess the health and functional status of the elderly (defined as those who are 60 years or older) in Thiruvananthapuram city, the capital of Kerala state, India, are discussed. As the process of development results in longevity without concomitant economic success, traditional support systems break down. The differences in status of the elderly dependent on gender and socioeconomic class are highlighted. Women are poorer and generally suffer more morbidity than men in old age, even though their death rates are lower. The better-off among the elderly enjoy a quality of life much superior to their poor brethren. Thus, in transitional societies such as Kerala, socioeconomic status and gender play a significant role in determining the quality of life of the elderly, a finding which may have some policy implications.  (+info)

(6/431) Driving through: postpartum care during World War II.

In 1996, public outcry over shortened hospital stays for new mothers and their infants led to the passage of a federal law banning "drive-through deliveries." This recent round of brief postpartum stays is not unprecedented. During World War II, a baby boom overwhelmed maternity facilities in American hospitals. Hospital births became more popular and accessible as the Emergency Maternal and Infant Care program subsidized obstetric care for servicemen's wives. Although protocols before the war had called for prolonged bed rest in the puerperium, medical theory was quickly revised as crowded hospitals were forced to discharge mothers after 24 hours. To compensate for short inpatient stays, community-based services such as visiting nursing care, postnatal homes, and prenatal classes evolved to support new mothers. Fueled by rhetoric that identified maternal-child health as a critical factor in military morale, postpartum care during the war years remained comprehensive despite short hospital stays. The wartime experience offers a model of alternatives to legislation for ensuring adequate care of postpartum women.  (+info)

(7/431) The dynamics of mass migration.

We specify a set of equations defining a dynamic model of international migration and estimate its parameters by using data specially collected in Mexico. We then used it to project the a hypothetical Mexican community population forward in time. Beginning with a stable population of 10,000 people, we project ahead 50 years under three different assumptions: no international migration; constant probabilities of in- and out-migration, and dynamic schedules of out- and in-migration that change as migratory experience accumulates. This exercise represents an attempt to model the self-feeding character of international migration noted by prior observers and theorists. Our model quantifies the mechanisms of cumulative causation predicted by social capital theory and illustrates the shortcomings of standard projection methodologies. The failure to model dynamically changing migration schedules yields a 5% overstatement of the projected size of the Mexican population after 50 years, an 11% understatement of the total number of U.S. migrants, a 15% understatement of the prevalence of U.S. migratory experience in the Mexican population, and an 85% understatement of the size of the Mexican population living in the United States.  (+info)

(8/431) Food safety in the 21st century.

The global importance of food safety is not fully appreciated by many public health authorities despite a constant increase in the prevalence of foodborne illness. Numerous devastating outbreaks of salmonellosis, cholera, enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli infections, hepatitis A and other diseases have occurred in both industrialized and developing countries. In addition, many of the re-emerging or newly recognized pathogens are foodborne or have the potential of being transmitted by food and/or drinking water. More foodborne pathogens can be expected because of changing production methods, processes, practices and habits. During the early 21st century, foodborne diseases can be expected to increase, especially in developing countries, in part because of environmental and demographic changes. These vary from climatic changes, changes in microbial and other ecological systems, to decreasing freshwater supplies. However, an even greater challenge to food safety will come from changes resulting directly in degradation of sanitation and the immediate human environment. These include the increased age of human populations, unplanned urbanization and migration and mass production of food due to population growth and changed food habits. Mass tourism and the huge international trade in food and feed is causing food and feedborne pathogens to spread transnationally. As new toxic agents are identified and new toxic effects recognized, the health and trade consequences of toxic chemicals in food will also have global implications. Meeting the huge challenge of food safety in the 21st century will require the application of new methods to identify, monitor and assess foodborne hazards. Both traditional and new technologies for assuring food safety should be improved and fully exploited. This needs to be done through legislative measures where suitable, but with much greater reliance on voluntary compliance and education of consumers and professional food handlers. This will be an important task for the primary health care system aiming at "health for all".  (+info)


Why does Nancy Pelosi support killing unborn babies to reduce States costs? Why not charge irresponsible peopl?


It seems like the Obama government is now hoping to reduce the population to save money because they know it's tough. But when you have zero population growth, who will look after the future?
----------

This question should be in the Politics section, if anywhere.


Mac Donalds and Condoms, is it a great idea?


I notice that Macdonalds are including a condom in a special promotion meal, a bit like a happy meal but for adults.

Do you think its great that they are now trying to stop the population growth in fast-food meat-eating couples.

I do., it a bit of sanity in thier BSE-crazed world.
This is true by the way. I've  seen a newspaper article where a parent discovered a condom in a kids happy meal, sued them,  and it transpired that MCD's defense was that it was supposed to be in a post-11PM happy meal.
Vegan and Proud has provided an on-line link to the story, thanks for that
----------

LMAO! I never heard about this before.


Is there a relationship between population growth and disease?


Like in history the Black Plague caused many people to die and the population decreased for a while and yet we recovered. Is there a proven (or at least studied) relationship between death by disease and overpopulation? Any websites or history is greatly appreciated. I'm writing a paper on overpopulation. Please list the source.
----------

Certainly there is.  Aside from the logical conclusion of greater instances of disease conditions in proportion to population growth, there is the conclusion that more infected persons with communicable diseases will result in a greater amount of people to which the condition is passed on.

In earlier times, such as in early North American settlement, entire populations of infected areas were certainly decimated.  From examples of such occurrences, it is not unreasonable to believe that entire populations were entirely eradicated due to not enough uninfected persons - or those infected but survived -  to maintain the anent population of that area.

It may be interesting to note that in such earlier times, the survival was not due to the surviving portion of the population per se, but rather the failure of the organisms that caused the disease to survive certain condition, such as the cold winter months.

In more contemporary times, the greater instances of certain conditions – such as say, Asperger’s Syndrome – can be attributed to the growing awareness of the condition itself, and thus the availability of an established symptomatology by which to affix persons that would otherwise go unnoticed as having the condition.


What would be the consequences if medical science could cure EVERTHING?


With advancements in gene therapy, stem cell treatment, lab-grown organs etc. If, in the future we do  manage to find ways to prevent and cure all known medical threats to human life.

This is a long way off and out immediate concern is to prevent as many natural deaths as possible, but following our progress to its natural end...eventually, surely we will cure everything and perhaps by then even new strains of virus will not 'surprise' us anymore.

I imagine there would be huge repercussions on population growth and the age of the population which in turn would have drastic effects on the economy, the ability to feed everyone on the planet with our limited resources and I'm sure would prompt massive discussion into population-size control.

Has anyone published a paper about this or anything?
----------

none


How much time do humans have to live on earth?


Taking in consideration population growth, food, natural resources, war, disease, natural disasters, evolution and time etc.?
----------

The most likely scenario would be the rapid spread of viruses due to overcrowding that would kill off tens of millions, or massive loss of life due to wars over the diminishing resources.

We all need to reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose.


What is a growth spurt and will i still have the chance to grow?


How to tell if I'm having a growth spurt? When will I get it? Does it happen to everyone? I'm 13 (female) and I'm exactly 5 foot. I got my period about 4 months ago. Will I still have the chance to grow? And am I too short for my age?

P.S One of my grandfathers is tallllllll, and both my great grand fathers are tall as well.
----------

A growth spurt is marked by rapid growth in a short amount of time.. A spurt. At 13 years old you're likely to continue growing for another few years. At present you appear to be at the normal rate of growth. The average height for an adult female nowadays is 5'3-5'4.


How can i prevent stunting my growth while still being able to exercise in the gym?


ok, i know that weight training stunts ur growth. But what i wanna know is, do resistance machines do the same thing?
also, will low resistance, hi-rep exercises have the same negative effects the exercises that hv a possibility of stunting ur growth?
does anybody know any arm weight exercises (machine or without) that won't stunt ur growth?
----------

So where did you get this idea that exercise stunts growth?  I sure see a lot of big football players and basketball players that worked out vigorously in their teens and even younger, they don't seem to be stunted.  Another weird urban myth!


What growth hormones do I need to take to grow about 3 inches?


I'm fifteen, turning 16 in 2 months I'm short for my age and I wanted to know which growth hormones that would help me grow 3 inches or more. I'm 5'6" (five foot six inches). Where can I get them and are they cheap? Are they safe? Can they be prescribed by a Doctor? I really need to grow taller. Everyone I used to be taller than is now taller than ME its embarrasing.
----------

You're still growing.  If you want to see about growth treatment, you'll need to see your doctor.  Prescription only and they are not cheap.
