I attended the event titled Unnatural Causes Bad Sugar on Thursday, October 22 from 6 to 7 p.m. The event centered on the ways in which many factors influence people’s lives and significantly impact health. The first part of the event centered on watching a short video that focused on the damage to health that Native American tribes faced after they lost their water. There was a large increase in the amount of Native Americans who got diabetes and who were dying. It was thought that biology and genes were one of the main causes behind the increase in diabetes, but in reality there were many other factors. Geographic location, social and economic class status, and income level has an impact on a person’s health.

Around the world more and more people are doing their best to eat healthier, one of the ways they are doing this is with the locavore movement. The locavore movement is a way of eating where all of the food that one consumes is both produced and sold locally. Locavores choose to eat food that has come from their community rather than from across the nation. Eating food that is from one’s local community is incredibly beneficial to both the environment and the health of the citizens, to greatly important components of a functional community. If a community were to implement the locavore movement, it would better the economy and enhance the nutrition and health.
In a country that wastes billions of pounds of food each year, it's almost shocking that anyone in America goes hungry. Yet every day, there are millions of children and adults who do not get the meals they need to thrive. We work to get nourishing food – from farmers, manufacturers, and retailers – to people in need. At the same time, we also seek to help the people we serve build a path to a brighter, food-secure future.

She became a voice for the people who put their life on the line while working at Rocky Flats.

The South Beach Diet has made a huge impact on people trying to lose weight making it a very popular diet. The reason why I chose this diet is because it seemed very interesting that so many people kept talking about it online and many people I know have heard of it. I have also never heard of this diet before, and figured it had something to do with seafood because of its name.

It sounded like a good diet from everything I have read about it so far, and it seems to have its pros and cons like every diet does. The special thing about this diet according to Dr. Agatston is, “The secret of only eating carbohydrates and fats that are
