MANILA coach classic backpack small , Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Tuesday that Cambodia and Laos have eliminated trachoma, an ancient blinding disease.

In a news statement, Shin Young-soo, WHO regional director for the Western Pacific, congratulated the two Southeast Asian countries for successfully eliminating trachoma as a public health problem.

Shin called trachoma "a disease of poverty," adding that communities that do not have good access to safe water and sanitation are the hardest hit.

"But it is possible to tackle this public health problem, as Cambodia and Laos have done, by making the right investments to protect peoples' health coach jewelry outlet clearance ," Shin said in a statement.

Trachoma has been a health problem in Cambodia since the 1990s and in Laos since the 1970s.

Cambodia and Laos are the first countries in the WHO Western Pacific region to be validated as having achieved elimination of trachoma as a public health problem, WHO said.

Trachoma, an eye disease caused by infection with Chlamydia trachomatis bacteria, is the leading infectious cause of blindness worldwide, according to a WHO statement.

It said infection is spread through contact with discharge from the eyes and nose of an infected person, particularly young children.

It is spread by flies which have been in contact with the eyes and noses of infected people, the statement read. "Transmission of the infection is closely linked with poor sanitation and hygiene," it said.

YINCHUAN, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- Although China is getting richer, its young people are not necessarily getting healthier.

Statistics from a school in northeastern China showed that the records for school sports competitions have not been broken for decades, sparking public concern about the weak physical health of the younger generation.

According to school authorities, who declined to name the school, the record for the women's 800-meter run was set in 1977, while the record for the women's 100-meter dash dates back to 1979. The record in the men's 110-meter hurdle competition has not been broken since 1981.

"These days, the level of participants in city sports competitions is like that of school competitions coach wristlet bag outlet clearance ," said the school staff member in charge of the sports department.

According to a survey on teen health from the education department of Guangzhou, in 2016, only 2.6 percent of those surveyed in the southern city had "excellent" health indexes compared to the national standard, while 16.2 percent of respondents failed to reach the standard.

Mao Zhenming, a sports official from the China Education Association, said that in the past 30 years, the national standards were lowered for students' health, including their running coach wristlet bag outlet , jumping and throwing abilities, as many students could not meet the previous high standard.

"It has become increasingly difficult to recruit qualified students for school sports teams in recent years," said a physical education teacher in northwestern China's Shaanxi Province. "They appear to have grown taller and stronger, but their physical abilities, such as endurance, have dwindled."

Some blame parents for spoiling their children.

Ding Xiaojing, an official with the sports association in Yinchuan City, capital of northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region coach wallets outlet clearance , said that some parents fear their children will get hurt if they take part in physical activities.

"When we were kids, we used to play basketball and football a lot, which strengthened our bodies," Ding recalled. "But now parents are becoming a little overprotective, and they need to change their thinking."

The lack of sports training agencies is another stumbling block.

According to the General Administration of Sport, China has about 7,000 various organizations dedicated to teenagers' physical training. In the United States, there are about 5 coach wallets outlet ,000 training clubs for gymnastics alone.

"In China, many sports clubs are private, but the clubs' sports venues are controlled by public schools," said Liu Hechang, a teacher in the sports department of North Minzu University.

Meanwhile, Chinese teenagers are simply getting too fat.

Bian Ke, who has run a busy restaurant for 30 years in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province coach value spree outlet , says parents often take their children to his restaurant.

"Expensive food, such as goose liver, is a symbol of high living and opulence," said the restauranteur. "However, parents are not paying attention to the amount of protein they and their children take in."

Traditional ingredients, such as chicken or duck, have now been replaced by lobster and imported steak. This has caused many to become pot-bellied, he said.

China's breakneck economic growth has allowed people to enjoy fuller diets coach tote bags outlet clearance , but richer ingredients have led to an increase in obese people. In Sichuan, the most populous province in southwest China, almost one third of the population is overweight.

A 2013 survey found there were 62 million overweight Chinese, second only to the United States.

"Nowadays, people are too busy to cook at home, which means they are not in control of the amount of oil and salt that goes into their food," Bian said.

Experts say that children should be encouraged to take part in sports activities instead of spending all their time doing homework.
