Please choose one risk factor and one family factor from the list above, and provide suggestion(s) to answer the following question: What do you think needs to be done in order minimize the level of risk associated with the risk factor of your choosing and to improve the overall family environment (associated with the risk factor you have chosen) so the violent behavior or adolescent violence is minimized significantly.

QUESTION 2

There is strong evidence that by focusing on prevention, a health promotion  program reduces the costs (both financial and human) that individuals,  employers, families, insurance companies, medical facilities, communities, the  state, and the nation would spend on medical treatment. Please describe how  the focus on prevention enables local communities, for example, to save money  or reduce costs?
Your response should be at least 225 words in length.

QUESTION 3

The typical American diet is too high in saturated fat, sodium, and sugar and  too low in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, calcium, and fiber. Such a diet  significantly increases the risk of numerous diseases, including heart  disease, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, stroke, osteoporosis, and many  cancers (colon, prostate, mouth, throat, lung, stomach). Overall, unhealthy  eating habits and inactivity affect quality of life and cause disabilities.  What do you think needs to be done in order to reduce the intake of saturated  fat, sodium, and sugar in our products? Who is responsible for monitoring the  acceptable levels in these three categories?
Your response should be at least 225 words in length.

QUESTION 4

Health inequalities arise from the societal conditions in which people are  born, grow, live, work, and age. Why do you think such inequalities are more  prevalent in third world countries and are less prevalent in the  industrialized ones?  What are some of the key contributors to common  health inequalities?

Your response should be at least 225 words in length.
