Have you known that on average we take home 150 plastic bags ? In other words, that means a global figure of one million plastic bags taken home every minute. We are sure you will agree this is a truly shocking .

Plastic bags cannot be simply disposed of along with your domestic rubbish - they can blow off sites and become highly visible litter which can remain in the environment for a number of years. They are not only an eyesore but they are a danger to the environment, too. For example, plastic bags almost blocked the Buriganga river in Bangladesh, and they are widely for causing devastating floods there on two separate occasions.

They also pose a particular threat to wildlife. More and more frequently dead turtles and whales are discovered washed up on beaches, killed by plastic bags. To marine life, a plastic bag closely resembles a jellyfish.

These are the reasons why you should reuse plastic bags you already have or take a small rucksack on trips to the supermarket. Why not take and show how much you care about the environment by taking this small step!

Read the passage.

At 10, Courtney Thompson was a top-ranked gymnast in New Hampshire. She had been doing flips since she was one and had her heart set on competing in the Olympics. She practiced four and a half hours a day, six days a week, often repeating the same move 100 times. Her demanding schedule had a negative effect on her. It got to the point where Courtney could barely straighten her elbows unless she put ice on them. On January 12, 2005, she had to stop in the middle of a floor routine. “I jumped up and grabbed my arm. It hurt really bad.” 

Courtney had surgery on both arms and went through months of painful recovery. Courtney’s experience is part of a growing trend in youth sports — kids and teens were starting to have the same type of injuries that only professional athletes used to have. Experts say kids are pushing their bodies to the limit, practicing sports too hard for too long. The exhausting schedules often lead to dangerous injuries that could keep young athletes from competing — permanently.

Under Strain

According to experts at The Physician and Sportsmedicine journal, more than 50 percent of youth sports injuries are due to overuse. Overuse injuries are caused by repetitive motion that, over time, puts more stress on a body part than it can handle. The tissue or bone eventually breaks, stretches, or tears. Danny Clark ended up with an overuse injury last year. The teen baseball player from Altamonte Springs, Florida, hurt himself by throwing 80 pitches in a single game after two months of not pitching at all. The sudden repetitive action tore Danny’s rotator cuff. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles and the tendons that connect them to bones in the shoulder. Afterward, he couldn’t pitch for two months and needed five months more of physical therapy.

Too Much, Too Soon

Experts say injuries such as Danny’s are on the rise, in part because more and more kids are leaving casual sports for organized team competitions that need hours of practice and game time. “Kids are playing sports more aggressively at younger ages,” explains Jam es Beaty, an orthopedist in Memphis, Tennessee.

Kevin Butcher, a 15-year-old soccer player from Fort Collins, Colorado, is no exception. He plays soccer three or four times a week for nine months a year. His dedication pays off — last year he helped lead his team to a state championship. But his success came with a price. “Last year, I sprained my ankle a few times, dislocated a bone in my foot, and broke both sides of my pelvis,” Kevin says. The first time he broke his pelvis, Kevin didn’t realize it for about a month. He played through the pain until doctors forced him to rest. When he dislocated a bone in his foot, a physical therapist put the bone into place, bandaged his foot, and let him play the next day.

Knowing Your Limits

Not every kid who plays sports ends up with serious injuries. Experts say the key to avoiding injury is paying attention to your body. Feeling sore after practice is OK, but sharp pain is a warning sign that shouldn’t be ignored. Kevin learned that lesson while recovering from his second broken pelvis in less than a year. “There’s definitely a success in playing through pain, but I think there is a limit. You just have to know when to stop.”

Now use NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS AND/OR A NUMBER to answer each question.

1. What negatively affected Courtney Thompson?

2. What is the cause of more than half of youth sports injuries?

3. How long did Danny Clark need to totally recover from his overuse injury?

4. What requires much practice but attracts more and more children?

5. What tournament did Kevin's team win?

6. What is the body warning sign that kids should pay attention to?
