Health is becoming a big problem and many more people pay attention on their health than before. In fact, people have noticed the problem. They choose to do exercise to keep healthy. They know doing physical activities is the best way to keep healthy. However, for some people, they always smoke. Most of them smoke half a pack per day. According to Seal (1988, p.35), “Smoking has been conclusively linked to many other diseases as well, including bronchitis, emphysema, larynx cancer, and pancreatic cancer.” That’s very bad for their healthy. So these people, they should quit smoking and do more exercise. Today many young people get more study and stress, sometimes they forget to do exercise. So we will do a survey in SIU to ask about them health.
The purpose for us in the survey is to know more information about people’s health. We want to know what percent of people do physical activities among the young people and how often they do exercise. We want to know they have pain or not, for example, we asked them “do you have chest pain when you do not physical activity?” We also researched the smokers. We care about what do they think about their healthy. We also asked them about their BMI (body mass index). It’s a good way to judge they are healthy or not. Gyo, Young and me worked together to find out the questions.
I think most of young people like doing exercise. While the different is how often did them do. I guess there will not so many people can have chest pain when they aren’t doing physical activities, because there are young. However, I think most young people smoke because study stress. And some people can tell us their BMI. I guess the reason is they don’t know about that or they think it’s provided information.
We have the survey papers. And we put five questions and one optional question on the list. We asked the question to know about them health. Such as, do physical activity or not, smoke or not. The only optional question is about their weight and height. It’s a good way to see their basic situation about health.
We asked 21 people in student center, Faner Hall and outside of Fanerhall. Most of them are students, and others are people working inside. Some of them are Americans, some of them are international student. They are very kind to spend some time to help me do the survey. They answered the question patiently. We had a good interview.
See appendix A and B
According to the appendix A and B, we can see that 100% of male do exercise, and 70% of female do exercise. About 33.3% of people had chest pain when they aren’t doing physical activity, while 66.6% of people were not. 45% of male felt pain during exercise, 20% of female felt pain during exercise. Avery small percentage (1%) of people were losing balance during exercise. 33% of people were smoker out of the whole people, and they were smoke average half of pack. 75% of smoker were male and 25% of smoker were female. Most of people didn’t know about their BMI, but according to their information (height, weight), we realized average of BMI. Male’s average were 23.5, Female’s average were 18.2.
VIII. Conclusions and Discussion
Most of my hypothesis and the results are very closed. It’s true that most people like doing exercise to keep healthy. But the one point surprised me is that there are about 70% female like doing exercise and they some of them can do every day. It’s not common that people can get chest pain when they aren’t doing physical activity. And few people few people ever lost consciousness. However, the percent 33% for people that are smokers is much lower than I guessed before. Maybe people the percent has gone down because people pay more attention on health and prefer doing physical activity to smoking. So more people do exercise than before and less people smoke than before, people want to be healthy, that’s a good thing that we found out from the survey.
