NPR Current Events. Search - US Teacher Lessons. Drugs Are Bad: FREE! 25-Slide PowerPoint and... by Mrs S's Health and PE Resources. I hope this show will help stop teens from using drugs! At the end of my drug unit last semester on an anonymous survey I had students tell me I should make drugs seem more scary and dangerous; so, I created this PowerPoint. This 25-slide presentation on the dangers of drugs can be shown to teens anytime, or anywhere. If you teach Health, it fits great into your drug unit. It does have graphic pictures so please be advised. These drugs are included in the presentation: hallucinogens, Marijuana, Heroin, Methadone, Oxycodone, GHB, date rape drug, alcohol, Xanax, Diazepam, sleeping pills, inhalants, Methamphetamine, Cocaine, and Ecstasy, Spice, Molly, K2, Bath Salts...

Where I show this presentation in my 9th grade Health class is right in the middle of my drug unit, during the Marijuana lesson. The focus for this lesson is that pot is a sneaky drug that many teens feel is safe to use and not addictive.

(Newser) – Despite a recent study claiming the opposite, scientists say getting cancer isn't just bad luck in most cases. A study out of Stony Brook University shows as much as 90% of cancers are caused by external factors, like smoking, drinking, sun exposure, and air pollution, and are thus more preventable than previously thought.

"There are changes that we can all make to our lifestyles to significantly reduce our risk of cancer," a rep for the World Cancer Research Fund tells the Telegraph, adding some of the most common cancers "could be prevented by adopting a more healthy diet, exercising more, and maintaining a healthy weight. " Scientists note cancer is too common to be explained by mutations in cell division, as a January study suggested, though external factors can cause high rates of mutations, per the Los Angeles Times. "Intrinsic risk factors contribute only modestly to cancer development," a study author says.

Most Cancer Types Boil Down to Bad Luck. (Newser) – Roughly two-thirds of cancer types researchers recently studied largely appear to be the result of random mutations and not inherited genes or environmental and lifestyle factors. Reporting in the journal Science, researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine investigated 31 common cancer types and found that 22 of them (including leukemia, bone, testicular, ovarian, and brain cancer) appear to mostly be attributed to just plain bad luck; the nine largely attributed to genes and lifestyle include skin, colorectal, and lung cancer. The analysis revolved around stem cells, which comprise a small number of the total cells in most tissues but tend to be where tumors form because they are constantly dividing to repair damaged tissue—and thus there is, simply mathematically, more opportunity for mutations to occur in these cells.
