Health and Beauty

Health and Beauty

As Cambodian society moves forward, fewer and fewer people have to worry about supporting themselves day-to-day.  This has allowed for other concerns to take the fore, especially health and beauty.  In this issue, LIFT brings you inside the various ways Cambodians are promoting their good looks and good health, through diet, exercise and more!  The issue also goes in depth on some new health risks posed by modern technology.

For example, farmers are increasingly depending on the use of harmful chemicals to meet market demand for fruit and vegetables.  A LIFT reporter investigates the effects of chemically-altered produce on the bodies of consumers (pages 3 and 10).

Furthermore, expired products produced locally and imported from abroad continue to be sold on the Cambodian market.  When consumers it spoiled food, it effects their health.  LIFT reports on this widespread but rarely addressed issue (pages 4 and 5).

While some people concern themselves over various health risks, others turn to exercise to ensure health and beauty.  They go to sports clubs and beauty salons with exercise equipment (pages 6 and 7).

Taking care of health and beauty also entails paying attention to reproductive health and safety.  LIFT interviewed a peer educator group attempting to raise awareness of sexual health issues among youth in the provinces (page 8).

We here at LIFT sincerely hope this issue with educate and entertain you.  If you have any comments, suggestions, or information regarding education, careers, and other issues that concern young people, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected].  Enjoy your read!
