Today, when civilization has reached such heights, the problem of human health is acute. Despite the fact that science does not stand still, discoveries are made in the field of medicine, biology, genetics and other sciences, health indicators are constantly falling. And this is no coincidence. The rhythm of our life often makes us forget about our health. Often we don’t think about what we eat, how much time we spend on sleeping and working at the computer, what type of rest we choose, etc. But we must not forget that it is on our chosen lifestyle that the state of our health depends on 50%. Other factors: genetic (20–25%), environment (20–25%), and medical support (8–10%).

If we consider Russia, for example, in terms of life expectancy, we lag behind Europe (for women -71-72 years of life, for men-56-58 years). The main causes of death are cardiovascular diseases (56%), accidents (12-13%), oncology (13%), respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases (4% each) and the remaining 2% are due to other diseases.

All these data confirm the importance of maintaining your health. This issue is addressed by valeology, a discipline representing a body of knowledge about health and a healthy lifestyle.

Theme of my work: "The impact of computers and cell phones on the health of students." Against the general background, it seems to me that the widespread informatization and computerization of society has a very strong influence on the general level of health. High technology allows a modern person to keep up with the times, but adversely affect the somatic and mental health of adults, and even more children. Minimizing the harmful effects of a computer on a child’s body is becoming one of the important tasks facing a modern school.
In the development of a computer training strategy, a preventive direction should be provided, including overcoming risk factors and actively educating students in hygienic conditions.

Today it is impossible to imagine the future without a computer. Work on it teaches children a new, simpler and faster way to receive and process information. And the ability to find the material necessary for the activity and process it efficiently accelerates and optimizes the thinking process. The computer can become an assistant in the intellectual development of the child, the development of the profession, and can destroy health and lead to social maladaptation.

It is advisable to teach a child to use the capabilities of a computer so that it would be beneficial, and not harmful, to the task of adults: parents and teachers. Only an adult can explain to a child the importance of maintaining good health and instilling a healthy lifestyle. After all, children's age is flexible for the adoption of new information. With age, changing your lifestyle is much more difficult, as you have to break stereotypes and habits. Therefore, it is from childhood that it is necessary to explain the rules of hygiene and a healthy lifestyle.

Purpose: to form a child’s knowledge about the impact of a computer and a cell phone on human health.

Tasks set before the program:

1. To talk about the main factors affecting the health of people working at a computer;

2. To tell about the diseases caused by prolonged work at the computer;

3. Give medical advice on working on a computer;

4. To tell about the harmful effects of cellular communications on the human body and give recommendations for reducing this impact;

5. To inculcate a conscientious attitude to your health.

  1. Heredity and its effects on health
    Physical and mental health must be considered in dynamics, namely, as a process that changes throughout a person’s life. Health largely depends on heredity and age-related changes that occur in the human body as it develops. The body's ability to resist the effects of harmful factors is determined by the genetic characteristics of adaptive mechanisms and
  2. Health Factors
    Risk factors (RF) - these are potentially hazardous to health circumstances of a behavioral, biological, genetic, ecological, social nature, the environment and the work environment, increasing the likelihood of the development of diseases, their progression and adverse outcome. З due to the complex influence of social, behavioral and biological factors. It:
    The scientific and technological revolution has expanded the scope of industrial and domestic use of electromagnetic field sources (EMF) of various frequency ranges. This, for example, radio, television, mobile communications, computerization, children's radio-controlled toys, radar antennas, attempts to expose a person to electromagnetic waves for medical and other purposes, etc. They are, strictly speaking,
  4. Health effects of the environment
    At present, extensive scientific material has been accumulated proving the direct impact of a number of environmental factors (climate, weather, ecological situation) on human health. Based on extensive material, biometrics (a science that studies the dependence of well-being on weather) has developed a kind of “calendar” of diseases characteristic of medium-sized geographic

    Each toxic molecule causes a cascade of reactions that propagate like circles on a smooth surface of the water of a quiet lake, resulting from the fall of a single drop. These circles diverge far as far as the eye can see. Similarly, you can observe the chemical traces of each toxin a long time after it triggered a chain of events. But
  7. The impact of housing on public health
    A person spends most of his life in various rooms, where he finds reliable protection from the cold, heat, bad weather and creates the necessary conditions for work, rest, rest and aesthetic needs. All this is possible provided that in housing construction not only the rules of architecture and technology, but also hygiene requirements are provided for the proper operation of the premises and

    The biological, physiological and psychological effects of alcohol on humans. The role of endogenous alcohol in the physiological functioning of the body. The effect of small doses of alcohol on the functioning of the leading systems of the human body. The concepts of "alcoholization", "alcoholic disease", "alcoholism". The phenomenon of "Russian" alcoholism. Population risk groups for the formation of chronic
  9. The influence of indoor plants on the microclimate of classrooms and the health of students
    Purpose: The formation of knowledge about the health and influence of indoor plants on it. Tasks: 1) Define the term microclimate and designate its optimal conditions for the health of the human body. 2) Tell about the effect of plants on the human body. 3) To tell about the effect of plants on the microclimate of the premises. Introduction Microclimate - a complex of physical factors
  11. The effect of beer on human health
    What are the delights of this drink? Beer is made from a very useful product - barley, which contains proteins, fats, carbohydrates and vitamins. But in beer wort, fermentation microbes eat this wonderful product, using it for its growth, reproduction and producing alcohol as a final metabolic product (a kind of “urine”), which is extremely dangerous for the life of all living organisms.
  12. The effect of air quality on public health
    The health status of the population is one of the main criteria for environmental quality. In the structure of the general morbidity of the population, an increasing share is occupied by diseases that are a consequence of technogenic pollution of the environment, in particular atmospheric air. This trend has recently been observed not only in industrial regions, but also in rural areas. Atmospheric
