Burning Plastic Can Inflame Your Lungs

Even though we are now well aware of the severely adverse effects of plastic and pollution, ignorant practices still continue without realizing the kind of impact they might hold on the human body, other living creatures and even the environment as a whole. One such highly common and ignorant practice is that of burning plastic waste which reportedly contains carbon and hydrogen in large quantities. These compounds (carbon and hydrogen) mix with chloride which is most commonly present in food waste. When plastic waste is burnt, these compounds are set on a fire and a burning mixture of them releases an extremely harmful gas that is especially hazardous for humans. Among the many chemicals created while burning plastics are dioxin and furan. When this gas or dioxins (a group of highly toxic chemical compounds) are inhaled, instant reactions are observed in the form of coughing, shortness of breath, dizziness, etc. Long-term exposure has also been reported to be capable of leading to can..

The Parental Spoken Word And Its Impact On The Lives Of Children

The family is a very pivotal societal unit in every aspect of the socialization process from childhood to adulthood. This is why the streetism menace in Ghana is a matter of concern. In the family, parents have roles to play much as the children being brought up equally play various roles in the socialization process. The roles played within families in this regard vary from culture to culture. No universally accepted role framework exists even though some roles permeate different cultures. I have come to realize that what parents say in the lives of their children often come to pass. Parents represent God on earth for their children hence whatever a parent says or intends to say in the lives of his or her children must be measured. The parental spoken word impacts what destiny holds for the individual. Ghana professes three main religions and each religion teaches families about the parent-child relationship in terms of rights and duties of each of the two parties. Biblically, childre..
