How Your Child Is At Risk For Drug Abuse

Portrait of a smiling little girl lying on trampolineBy all appearances, Jessica is a normal, healthy twelve year-old girl.  She enjoys hanging out with her friends, plays soccer after school, and has started to pay attention to boys.  She is well-behaved and nobody would think that she is at risk of abusing prescription drugs.  One afternoon, she overhears her parents talking about how her aunt’s medication is causing her to rapidly lose weight.  She recalls how some of her friends are much thinner and more popular.  The next time she visits her aunt’s house, Jessica steals a few pills and starts the vicious cycle of drug addiction.  Afraid that her parents or aunt find out about the medication, she performs an online search for “cheap online pharmacy” and easily places an order for several hundred pills that are delivered right to her doorstep.

This case is not unbelievable with the advent of rogue online pharmacies that ignore safe practices for distributing prescription drugs.  Not all adolescents use drugs for the purpose of “getting high”; many common causes include dealing with stress or anxiety, pain relief, weight loss, increased concentration, and boredom.  These teenage drug abusers can be hidden from plain sight, which is why education of the dangers of drug abuse is an important topic for all parents to discuss with their children.

Understanding Online Pharmacies

Legitimate online pharmacies are similar to local pharmacies in their due diligence, as they check for valid prescriptions, require a medical history, and distribute safe prescription drugs.  Certification in using third-party organizations to verify their dedication to safety, such as the Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA), or PharmacyChecker.com, are ways to ensure that the online pharmacy is safe and legitimate.

Some online pharmacies are illegal operations that adolescents can stumble upon through an online search.  Illegal prescription drugs can be only an online form and credit card away.  These illegitimate sources not only circumvent the law by ignoring safe practice, but participate in distributing harmful drugs.  Their drugs often contain incorrect dosages, which is a danger in itself, but also have been known to contain toxic substances such as rat poison, glue, or chalk.  Never order prescription drugs from an online pharmacy that does not require prescriptions.

How Can You Protect Your Children?

Open communication is the basis of understanding a child’s thoughts and actions.  If Jessica’s parents were aware about her concern with her physical appearance and weight, there are a number of solutions that could have prevented drug abuse.  Education about drugs and drug abuse is also an important first step in preventing drug addiction.

Learning about online pharmacies, both the legitimate and illegitimate businesses, can help understand the source of illegal prescription drugs.  Safe online pharmacies help provide many Americans with affordable medication and are a rising staple in the pharmaceutical industry.  Rogue online pharmacies are uncertified, dangerous sources of medication for all ages.

Mother To Child Transmission Of Cancer Possible, But Extremely Rare


During pregnancy a lot of different, harmful substances can pass to the child. Smoking, alcohol, and drugs are among the variety of different substances that can cause devastating effects to the unborn child. The baby be born with a wide array of disorders, from congenital disorders, to drug addiction, to fetal alcohol syndrome. The result can be very damaging and may even cause the death of the child. However, among the numerous different things that can effect an unborn child, cancer originating from the mother has been talked about, argued about, but only now are there definitive answers.

Researches have discovered the cancer can be transmitted to the child, from the mother during pregnancy. A 28-year-old Japanese woman gave birth to a baby girl. Everything appeared fine until a month after the birth. The mother developed vaginal bleeding and would be diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Although she began chemotherapy she would die only 19 days later after developing encephalitis. To make matters worse the baby would be taken to hospital at only 11 months of age, after she developed a large swell in her right cheek. The child had a tumor in her jaw and cancer that spread to her lungs. After DNA tests from the mother and child researchers found the cancer in the child and mother shared the same mutated gene. Also, the cancer found in the baby had spread before birth.

However, before mothers start becoming alarmed, the chances of cancer being given to a developing fetus if extremely low. The cancer in the case of the Japanese mother and child was caused because of a mutation that allowed the cancer to spread to the baby undetected. So just remember that the chance is very remote at best.

Regardless it still does seem a little bit scary that something as devastating as cancer is able to spread like that. I’m looking for the day when cancer isn’t an issue, when “the cure” will be available, and many lives are saved all around the world.
