Specifications Brand Flex Seal. Save your money buy Roofing Tape. The Flex Tape failed to hold up to its claims in all aspects Wish I would have read the reviews before I made the purchase and attempted to remedy my projects. Imahorselover, July 7, Works great on dry or wet areas. Bought a roll of this to try and patch a leak on my waterbed.

Cut off a piece big enough to cover the leaking area and a few inches more. Kept pressure on it to make sure the seal was good. Due to the varying availability and variety of food, height becomes a measurable tool of difference between regions. The Bahamas follow this difference with the Crooked Islands, the Family Islands and Acklins facing the highest malnutrition.

Further, difference in cultural entities creates very different ranges of dietary practice. The country of Belize houses different ethnic groups with ranging food practices. It is extremely difficult to account for health within countries without accounting for the nuances of each segment of the population and geography.

Guatemala relies on imports as droughts floods, deforestation and soil erosion prevent high agricultural yields. The varying regions also have varying degrees of government assistance. The Uruguay national programs are set up to assist the country. The changing landscape of a region is open to outside influence.

Developed countries offer aid along with access to the idea of globalization. This globalization brings technology and infrastructure advances to the population as much as it brings cardiovascular diseases and a sedimentary lifestyle. Health exists in relation to many factors of changing economy, education, environment and nutrition.

The measures of health, such as height, demonstrate key regional differences and the gaps that require improvement. Africa is a large continent with diverse nutritional challenges and roadblocks. Development varies across countries as parts of the region face unrest, under-nutrition and battles with disease. The landscape of Africa is similar to many developing nations — it is a study of contradictions. Regions of rural poverty are contrasted with urban centers of rapid economic growth.

The living standards vary vastly not only between countries but within them. The terrain offers different resources across the continent influencing local diet. In Benin, yam is a common staple in the diet. The interior of Morocco has the potential for wheat production. A region like Cape Verdean is able to produce cereal, rice, vegetables and fish. Countries with access to a coastline rely heavily on seafood for their diet. Globalization has introduced wealth to urban centers of each country.

With access to technology, diverse farming in less than fertile soil is able to take place. Many regions have adopted rice as a crop for its versatility and strength in persevering in the toughest soil. Yet, this increased development brings its share of problems. A global marketplace introduces high fat oils and sweeteners in packaged foods that promote obesity.

Countries such as Algeria depend heavily on food imports, and the diversity of the food index is still something that needs to be improved. In places such as Benin, the majority of livestock is dependent on imports and thus the supply is limited and not spread equally across the country.

Micronutrients make up the majority of nutritional deficiencies in this region. Vitamin A and Iodine deficiency exacerbate health problems until they turn into serious conditions like goiter a swelling of the thyroid gland. The infrastructure and resources are present but not in a unified manner that can give consistent health care across the populations. Unfortunately, areas that lack this system have seen the re-emergence of diseases that were previously vaccinated against like tuberculosis.

Anemia or iron deficiency is a micronutrient deficiency that affects most rural women. Female mothers are particularly at a high risk for chronic energy deficiency low BMI. A lack of nutritional education leads to poor decisions in infant care. The availability of cheaper brands of formula has led to a trend for new mothers to choose to bottle-feed rather than breastfeed. This choice often puts an unnecessary economic strain on the household as babies become depended on this method of feeding.

Breastfeeding delivers the best nutrition for a child, which is why some countries like Ghana have implemented teachings programs. In fact, supplementation and education programs are trying to be put in place to assist pregnant women to teach a new generation of people about health practices. Micronutrient deficiencies often need a widespread regulatory system in place to combat the problem. Countries like Guinea have answered this need by implementing a salt iodization program against goiter.

Health infrastructure is being built, but specialized medicine is still not available in rural centers. Countries like Ethiopia have vitamin A supplementation programs, and vaccines are being given to combat preventable diseases.

A key in the fight for health is naturally fortified supplementation. Cotton oil and agricultural crops like wheat flour can be fortified with iron, folic acid and B vitamins to raise nutritional health for vulnerable segments of the population. Urban centers are entering a new phase of development that is bringing challenges to the health center that have not been previously seen. The exposure to unhealthy food options such as street foods, snacks and sugar-rich food have led to an emerging issue of obesity.

Combined with a lack of physical activity, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are straining health resources. Water is crucial for human survival. The sanitation of water in countries like Chad is detrimental to the health of the population.

Certain regions do not have access to local wells and so woman must often make long journeys across the land for cooking water. Whiles genes provide the blueprint for height, malnutrition stands in the way of it being achieved. This reduced growth rate in human development often afflicts younger children. Nutritional education, infrastructure and resources are needed to put development back on track. A major roadblock in health advances is the changing landscape brought on by civil war, disease epidemics, and environmental disasters.

Civil war from to in Mozambique severely handicapped health progress by destroying agricultural production and separating families. Since the end of the civil way, the region has started the road to recovery. Similarly in Chad, shifting alliances and political changes create an unstable region where the migration of people changes according to safety.

Certain regions have an influx of refuges at their border as neighboring countries are at war. Malaria is another cause of sickness and death, specifically for vulnerable children. Kenya is actively working towards higher immunization rates but much progress is needed.

The proper utilization of natural resources is necessary for countries to have the economic ability for change. The land can provide diverse forms of capital. What stands in the way of progress are natural disasters like the drought in Malawi that led to famine across the population. Kenya has faced alternating flood and drought concerns. Some regions like Cape Verde are limited in the resources they have. The land that is farmable is limited and often lacks the necessary rain for growth.

Africa is a region of difference, and so different health policies must be made to meet the needs of the population.

Health advances have been made but must further continue to improve nutrition and quality of life. Dietary choice is depended on availability and the geography of the region. Egypt and Iran enjoy cereal as a main staple. The more urbanized the population density, like in the Province on Tehran, the rate of animal produce increases.

Nutritional balance promotes health — Jordan has collectively tried to branch out and include a meal of wheat, rice, vegetables, and animal products. Economy is a roadblock for health advances. When large segments of the population are living below the poverty line, they are unable to eat nourishing meals. The conversation shifts to survival, instead of health.

Egypt has a segmented population with different social classes getting unequal shares of food resources. Iran also suffers from having no health services for its people. Shockingly, the majority of people in Sudan live in poverty with no food security. The types of nutritional deficiencies seen in this region mainly include anemia, iodine and Vitamin A with smaller cases of Vitamin D, folate and B There lacks clear studies done on nutrition for some parts but it is seen that iron deficiency has more devastating effects on children and women.

Countries like Egypt have promoted supplementation and salt iodization programs to combat the rising statistics of goiter in the population. Widespread intervention along with education programs is needed to promote healthy dietary practices.

Iranian women suffer from anemia leading to gastrointestinal bleeding, short birth intervals and occasional infectious disease. Fortunately in Bahrain, women largely continue to breast feed so their infants are able to get nutrient dense milk. To continue this trend and offset the emerging global bottle-feeding pattern, more education needs to be done. In rural areas, breast milk is often the only source of food for children.

Women prolong breastfeeding for as long as possible, meaning non-milk food gets introduced to the child late. This contributes to developmental delays and shorter growth height when compared to their healthier peers. Stunting refers to developmental growth delays that can show up as insufficient height. Even within the country, geographical differences account for different statistics of growth. The southern end of Iran has higher malnutrition than the north end. People are often surprised when they visit this region as the rate of development in urban centers has produced high-rise buildings in some areas.

While large parts of the country deal with malnutrition, the other side of the spectrum of health concerns does exist. Tehran has a rising problem of female body concerns, with young women under-eating to be thin. This comes from urban globalization that has seen the influx of high fat, sugar food into cities. A lack of exercise contributes to this problem coupled with the lower prices of fast food available. This leads to a burden on existing health infrastructures with the rise of diabetes, high blood pressure and cancers.

Often the need for varied dietary food is outstripped the available land for food production. Further, Jordan and Palestine is dry with a lack of water resources.

With such a high dependence on food imports, the availability of food is tied to fluctuating market prices. To combat this external dependency, more sustained practices of irrigation need to be adopted.
