Pnuemonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis- Angela

The fact that it’s the longest word in the English language and it’s a disease fascinated me. Pnuemonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis can’t exactly effect me or my family, It’s because the environment that we live in isn’t one where you’re most likely to develop the disease. Miners are more likely to get this disease, for example, If a miner is a quartz miner he is more exposed to inhalation of silica dust and if he is exposed to that for more than 10 years then the disease becomes chronic. When I first heard the disease I thought it was caused by the inhalation of fine volcanic dust and that’s it, I didn’t know that there was more. I’m not quite sure if I can connect this to whatever we learned in wellness class in 7th grade. For people who live in the same environment as I do (like teenagers, kids and people living away from mine) it isn’t very important but for miners it’s extremely important to be cautious of this disease especially mining around quartz.

I learned about the different symptoms of Pnuemonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis and the treatments for the symptoms. I learned more about the different diseases of coniosis. In my opinion I think Pnuemonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is very fun and interesting to research and to find out more about the different coniosis diseases. Something that was really unexpected for me was that pnuemonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis fell under a categorie of coniosis diseases, I thought that there is only one type of disease. I will definitely be more cautious with my surroundings more often. A lot of people think that because it’s a really long word its a complicated disease, but it isn’t as complicated as other diseases. There are solutions to the treatments but not for the actual disease.


My topic is music. I chose this topic because I use music to relax and relieve stress and it work! I wanted to find out why. Music can help reduce depression and relieve stress. It can also make you feel better by releasing the feel good chemical, dopamine. Many teenagers have anxiety and depression. It can reduce the pain for depression for up to 25%.

 Music affects your exercise, effects health, affects parts of you, and reduces stress.  The tempo of the music can effect the heart rate of a person. When they listen to lively music then their heart rate increases and if they listen to slow music then the heart rate reduces. It doesn’t matter wether the person likes the song or not it can reduce heart rate This is how a person can relax by listening to music. Classical music has the main effects on people but if you listen to to load music then it could just be distracting.  Listening to music can reduce  pain from a range of conditions, such as osteoarthritis, disc problems and rheumatoid arthritis, by up to 21% and depression by up to 25%.  people with high blood pressure by listening to classical music can control themselves to lower it down. Music can  improve memory and memory and the sharpness of the brain.  Music is like an exercise to the brain. It keeps an ageing brain healthy. Listening everyday can help improve stress levels. But it depends on the type of music. People react to the music in different ways.  It depends on the situation and the individual.  You have to listen to music that you like and effects you positively. Music can have a positive effect on your mood and reduce anxiety and depression. It can also make you feel exited sad or happy or even pumped up. Music releases dopamine which is the feel good chemical which makes you feel positive.
