Chapter 2


CHAPTER 2

1 “Not too long ago in Western culture, obesity was blamed solely on hyperthyroidism. ‘It’s not my fault; there’s something wrong with my body. Those six cheeseburgers and quart of Coke have nothing to do with it.’ Now that 63% of Americans, including 1/3 of all children, are struggling with overweight or obesity, researchers have been forced to look at causation there as well. In the same way, we must begin to look at some of the sweeping social changes that have taken place in our culture over the last 50 years and begin to ask questions of causation. Are we unwitting victims in the current cultural malaise of materialism, violence, and oversexualization, or is there a link to controllable causation?” (Dunne L. Emerge: Cracking the Cocoon of Media Socialization. 4GenPress; 2010.)

2 Danaei G, et al. Causes of cancer in the world: comparative risk assessment of nine behavioral and environmental risk factors. Lancet. 2005;366(9499):1784–93.

Research conducted at the Creighton University School of Medicine in Nebraska shows that lifestyle changes can reduce cancer risk by 77 % (Creighton University: News Center. Creighton Study Shows Vitamin D Reduces Cancer Risk. 2007. Retrieved from http://www.creighton.edu/publicrelations/newscenter/news/2007/june2007/june82007/vitamind_cancer_nr060807/index.php on June 23, 2011.) In 1900, the top three causes of death in the United States were pneumonia / influenza, tuberculosis, and diarrhea/enteritis. Since the 1940’s, most deaths in the United States have resulted from heart disease, cancer, and other “lifestyle” diseases. (National Office of Vital Statistics. Leading Causes of Death 1900-1998. Retrieved from http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/dvs/lead1900_98.pdf on June 19, 2011).

3 Teens are in great distress in our country. The U.S. is a world leader in youth homicide, the second leading cause of death for 14- to 24-year-olds, and the leading cause of death for African-American and Hispanic teens in America. (Dunne L. Shift: Creating Cultural Change. 4GENPRESS; 2011.)

4 Self-violence in our teen population has increased exponentially, with teens purposefully cutting and burning themselves in an attempt to relieve emotional pain. When I ask my college students how many know someone who is or was a “cutter,” the vast majority of them have cutter acquaintances. When I ask their parents the same question, they don’t even know what a cutter is. (Dunne L. Shift: Creating Cultural Change. 4GENPRESS; 2011.)

5 “Today, there are fewer boys who are successful in school, fewer men in the army, fewer male leaders and role models in general. In 2008, more women than men were heads of households in the United States (51%), and for the first time in American history, there are more women than men registered for college classes. According to the US Census, 56% of college students are women, and 59% of graduate students are women.” (Dunne L. Emerge: Cracking the Cocoon of Media Socialization. 4GenPress; 2010.)

6 Suicide is the third most common cause of death for adolescents in the U.S., and a recent government study shows that 17% of high school students have made at least one plan to kill themselves. (NEED MORE DATA: Community Killers? How Virtual Relationships Undermine Healthy Connection, Dr. Lisa Dunne)

8 “Years of living vicariously through televised entertainment could create an insatiable drive for constant amusement rivaling an addict’s craving for a drug-induced stupor.” (Hamill P. Crack and the Box. 1998. Washington Post.)

9 According to a recent LiveScience survey, “64 percent of Americans say they spend more time with their computer than with their significant other.” (Wood L. When Your Most Significant Other is a Computer. 2007. Retrieved from http://www.livescience.com/1918-significant-computer.html on June 20, 2011.)

11 Another example of self-injury is found in our country’s STI rates: 60% of those 14 years and older in the United States have at least one sexually transmitted infection. Each day 8,000 US teens contract an STI, which means that 3 million teens will become infected this year. (Dunne L. Shift: Creating Cultural Change. 4GENPRESS; 2011.)

13 In the US, the average age of first exposure to pornography via the internet is age 11, and 90% of 8-16 year-olds have viewed porn online (most while doing homework), with 80% of 15-17 year-olds having been exposed to multiple hard-core porn visuals (Family Safe Media. Pornography Statistics. 2007. Retrieved from http://familysafemedia.com/pornography_statistics.html on June 20, 2011.). The average age of first confrontation (pornography) is down to 8 years old, and that confrontation usually occurs while students are doing homework online. (Dunne L. Emerge: Cracking the Cocoon of Media Socialization. 4GenPress; 2010.)

14 University of North Carolina researchers demonstrated that sexual content in music, movies, and television programming can lead to sexual involvement at a younger age by acting as a “virtual peer” that influences behavior. The study showed that exposure to sexual content leads to early sexual involvement, and higher exposure levels lead to greater levels of sexual activity. This research was prompted by the fact that teen pregnancy in the US is three to 10 times higher than any other industrialized nation. (Brown JD, et al. Sexy Media Matters: Exposure to Sexual Content in Music, Movies, Television, and Magazines Predicts Black and White Adolescent’s Sexual Behavior.  Pediatrics. 2006;117:1018-1027.)

15 “Beyond regrets of wishing they would have waited longer, teens who have sex before 18 are less likely to advance in their education and career. According to one recent study, teens that do not have sex before age 18 are nearly three times less likely to drop out of high school than teens that do have sex before age 18. The statistic held true even when accounting for socioeconomic status and related factors.” (Dunne L. Emerge: Cracking the Cocoon of Media Socialization. 4GenPress; 2010.)

16 Seven out of 10 teens that have been sexually active wish that they had waited until they were older (Rector R, Johnson K, Noyes, L: The Heritage Foundation. Sexually Active Teenagers Are More Likely to Be Depressed and to Attempt Suicide. 2003.

19 A recent study on teenage brains, showing a decreased ability to identify emotions, could bear interesting results if the participants were separated by the amount of media use. It is plausible that continued viewing of violent acts can bear long-term effects on the human brain, perhaps even rendering an individual incapable of empathy and thus more susceptible to becoming a perpetrator of violent crime.
