Kids and Animal Cruelty
As sad as it may be, many kids and teens are involoved in acts of animal cruelty. Reasons for this may be that it makes them seem tough, they're depressed or upset, or peer pressure. Studies show that children who abuse animals are more likely to grow up as people who harm other human beings. In my opinion, a life is a life, no matter what the species is. Awareness should be raised about this issue and parents and guardians should teach their children at a young ageto respect other living creatures. I am currently working to establish a club for humane education for children ages eight to seventeen. The club (called Kids Against Animal Cruelty) will focus on helping the local humane organization and learning about animal cruelty. I, myself, am fourteen years old.

A growing body of research shows promising signs that the keto diet might be able to improve mental health.
- The keto diet is known to be an effective tool for weight loss, however its effects on mental health remain largely unclear.
- Recent studies suggests that the keto diet might be an effective tool for treating depression, and clearing up so-called "brain fog," though scientists caution more research is necessary before it can be recommended as a treatment.
- Any experiments with the keto diet are best done in conjunction with a doctor, considering some people face problems when transitioning to the low-carb diet.
