just finished health and covered most things and was just checking the specification and was surprised to see malnutrition as a case study with obesity and famine. looked in the main geography books and tehre is no case studies for malnutrition!!!! apparantly it hasnt come up on a paper before? does anybody have this CS or have acutally looked at this topic???
Just know the definition, causes (i.e. lack of food or disease), and consequences. Most of the consequences will be the same as the consequences of famine... Be aware of things such as that people with AIDS are often susceptible to becoming malnourished due to the illness breaking down their immune system, and that malnutrition is often a direct result of poverty and food insecurity and therefore in LICs malnutrition is far more prevalent than in HICs.
It's mainly common sense - don't worry about it.
there's a health topic???
looking at spec this is what came up last time 4
Magnitude-frequency analysis of flood risk. Flood management strategies – to include hard
engineering – dams
Factors affecting river discharge
Glaciers as systems: glacial budgets.
Fluvioglacial processes, eskers
Ice movement – types of flow: internal deformation, rotational, compressional, extensional and basal
sliding; warm and cold based glaciers.
Settlement case studies-social welfare.
Attempts to manage population
change to achieve sustainable development with
reference to two case studies of countries at different
stages of development.
A local case study on the implications of the above
for the provision of health care systems
The study of one infectious disease (e.g. malaria, HIV/
AIDS) its global distribution and its impact on health,
economic development and lifestyle.
some key things that i can see, no CS for a while for rivers, cold enviroments, for pop non-CS questions havent been used 4 a while anybody else see any pattern
