  1. 1. Health – Food and health By the end of this lesson you will have: • Familiarised yourself with the Epidemiological transition model • Learnt about food and health and how the two are connected • Investigated a case study about the link between food and health
  2. 2. Re-Cap – Odd One Out • A) $24 billion/Physical Activity/UK • B) Influenza/AIDS/Heart Disease • C) High Blood Pressure/High Cholesterol/Walking • D) Affluence/N.C.D.s/Infectious Diseases • E) Morbidity/Mortality/Death Rates • Write your answers on a post-it and stick on the board
  3. 3. Epidemiological Transition Model • 1. Modernisation and development creates epidemiological transition • 2. With modernisation, or increasing affluence, comes a different range of illnesses • 3. Initially there were 3 stages ranging from pestilence to ‘human induced illness’ • 4. There are 3 variations of the basic model which correlates to different areas and the speed to which they pass through the stages ‘western’, ‘accelerated’ and ‘delayed’
  4. 4. Epidemiological Transition Model • Study the graph on page 21 • Describe what you see • Complete the activity on the bottom of page 21
  5. 5. Famine • F.A.O = Food and Agricultural Society • 800million have chronic malnutrition • Enough food is produced globally to provide 2,700calories to everyone each day • Malnutrition = a condition from dietary deficiency • Undernourishment = Not eating enough food over a period of time
  6. 6. Famine • We live in a globalised world – why isn’t everyone getting their fair share? • Natural events and human mismanagement • May be food exported but not that individual families can afford 3 Reasons why famine occurs: • DROUGHT • ARITHMETIC CROP GROWTH • PRICE INFLATION
  7. 7. Drought Case Study
  8. 8. Short Term Solutions to Famine • SHORT TERM • Usually carried out by N.G.Os such as charities. Aquinas alone raises significant amounts of money for CAFOD who respond to famines • Overdependence can be a problem with short term aid – there is only a limited supply and it might damage the local agricultural economy • TASK: To remember the issues relating to famine relief C.D.F.I.C.T – stick on walls
  9. 9. Long Term Solutions to Famine • • • • Making famine help more productive Usually comes in farming – SYNTHESIS Using improved technology or fertilisers Getting the produce to markets more quickly whilst it is still fresh and desirable • Easing international trade and cancelling national debts • Drop the Debt – Make Poverty History
  10. 10. Obesity
  11. 11. Obesity Supersize Me
  12. 12. Reducing Obesity • In what ways would you keep yourself healthy? • Government campaigns • It is of utmost importance the governments, N.G.Os and private companies keep their citizens healthy
  13. 13. Extension Task/Homework • ‘Discuss causes and consequences of periodic famine’ – 15 Jan 2012 • Famine: what is famine incl. examples • What are the causes of famine? • Which strata of society will suffer the most? • Consequences: Livestock, food, mass migration • International aid efforts
  14. 14. Extension Task/Homework • • • • • • ‘Discuss causes and consequences of obesity’ Obesity: what is obesity incl. examples What are the causes of obesity? Which strata of society will suffer the most? Consequences: N.C.Ds, government, social Government attempts to stop obesity
