The pie charts illustrates how the Republic of Korea, Sweden and the United Kingdom deal with different hazardous wasted products.
Overall, the most popular method of dealing with disposable items in Sweden and the UK is placing them underground while in the Republic of Korea recycling is the most common activity. Two methods are only done in the UK, namely incineration and dumping at sea.
The Republic of Korea and Sweden deal with their wasting in three ways, which are recycling, incineration and underground. In the Republic of Korea, more than two-thirds (69%) of disposable items are recycled, compared with exactly a quarter in Sweden. In comparison, only 22% of waste is buried in the Republic of Korea, while it is the most popular method in Sweden (55%). Meanwhile, incineration represents 9% and 20% in the Repulic of Korea and Sweden, respectively.
On the other hand, the United Kingdom buries 82% of its disposed dangerous items, which means more than three-quartes of the total. This country do not recycle any wasted product, and the other three methods together (chemical treatment, dumping at sea and incineration) account by only 18% of how the UK deal with its disposed materials.

There has been an increase in overweight issues in children around the world, which is believe by some people to be responsibility of the government. This essay disagrees with this view and it will discuss that parents are the main responsible for their children's eating habits and healthy lifestyle.
Since a child is born, they rely on their parents to be feed. In other words, it is the role of the adults to control their child's food intake, as obesity is often linked to the ingestion of unhealthy meals or the excess of food. For example, by doing grocery shopping, parents should choose healthy food options for the little ones, which would reduce the risks of their child to consume products with high level of sugars and fats. Thus, in a practical way, the first responsible for the hight rates of overweight children are the parents.
The second main cause of obesity is sedentarism. In the past decades, children have been spending longer hours playing on computer or watching television instead of practicing sports and other physical activities. Here again, parents and relatives play an essential role of controlling the activities done by their kids. Despite their busy routines, the adults should prioritize spending time with their children to keep them active instead of seated in front of a screen. Some activities such as walking in the park or even dancing together at home would be beneficial to prevent infant obesity. Otherwise, overweight rates will continue to rise.
In conclusion, I believe that parents have been playing the most important role towards the recent increase in obesity in children. Thus, it is not responsibility of any government, but of the mothers and fathers to look after their children's health in order to reverse this situation.
