How well are teens taking care of themselves? What young people are facing is their own minefield of health risks: an overwhelming array of behavioral and lifestyle choices and pressures from what to eat to whether or not to smoke or use illegal drugs. What they decide now could affect their health for a lifetime.

For many teenagers a great problem is to control their weight, many of them are keeping to a diet in an early age. More than half of all teen girls say they are or should be on a diet- incessantly battling the 40 pounds they naturally gain as they grow between the ages of 8 and 14. About 3 percent take it to the extreme, spiraling into bulimia or anorexia. There are no precise numbers, but researchers say eating disorders appear to be on the rise and are affecting children as young as 8. The health effects include osteoporosis, organ failure-even death.

Experts are increasingly worried about obesity, too. Today a record one in five teens is overweight, putting them at increased risk for heart disease, the nation’s No.1 killer. Given the hurried-up, tech-driven lives they lead, adolescents aren’t exactly well rested. They should get at least nine hours of sleep every night, but only about 15 percent do. And a full quarter get less than six, says Dr. Mary Carskadon of Brown University.

The world is facing a drugs crisis. There is some preliminary good news here. Drinking, some drug use and cigarette smoking either held fairly steady or declined slightly last year after climbing in the early-to-mid-1990s according to the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research. Many teens are getting the message and deciding it’s cool to stay clean. But still, there are more than 3,000 new young cigarette smokers every day in the country. One third of high school seniors have used marijuana and about the same number now qualify as binge drinkers, consuming five or more drinks in a row over the course of two weeks. About one in 20 high scholars has used the club-drug ecstasy, and heroin use has doubled since 1991.

Eating disorders, sleep problems and substance abuse can all be critical clues to mental turmoil. Anxiety disorders are the most pervasive psychiatric problems in teens: 13 percent of children between 9 and 17 suffer social phobia. The big concern is suicide, which is highly associated with depression. Every year, one in 13 high-school students attempts suicide – girls try to kill themselves more often than boys, but boys succeed far more frequently. “An amazing number of kids are either thinking about suicide or making suicide attempts or even dying”, says Dr. David Shaffer, a child psychiatrist at Columbia University. Shaffer is hopeful that a decline in teen suicide over the last few years will continue downward, but the rate is still staggering – three times higher among males in the 1990s than it was in the early 1960s.

In the end, teens should and will make their own choices. But they’re more likely to make the best ones if adults in their lives do the right thing- communicate, pay attention and set a good example themselves.
