Global Youth Meet on Health 2006 in India. Photo Credit: http://eatnlive.blogspot.com/I came across a blog today written by an 18 year old student in Singapore. He recently attended the Global Youth Meet on Health 2006 in India. Over 200 young people from 37 nations attended to discuss global issues of today. Read his write-up and look at the pictures – what an incredible (and fun!) experience for these kids.

At the end of the meet, the Youth for Health (Y4H) campaign was launched. Some of the recommendations include:

  • Comprehensive ban on smoking world in public places-Smoke free world.
  • Urging celebrities to refrain from endorsing on promoting harmful products such as junk food and carbonated drinks.
  • Strengthening awareness efforts around prevention of HIV
  • Protection of the environment by reducing air and water pollution, stalling the process of global warming and promoting water conservation, since a healthy environment is essential for human health.

There is hope!!

Of course this act is outlandish, but so is the chicken being served for dinner, even if the picture deemed worthy of sharing is a less easily sensationalized chicken salad.
