In his response, Stewart comments that "we have to strict blood alcohol limit, raise the drinking age, enforcement penalties for the drunk driver that help bring drunk driving rates down; I don 't know by 2/3 in a few decades". Stewart comment seems funny, but he uses the same logic that Ventura uses to prove his point. If people take steps to lower the number of drunk drivers, they take steps to limit child deaths in auto accidents, accidental poisoning, etc. Why people will not take steps when it comes to gun control? Mostly pro-guns extremists use slippery slope fallacy in all their debates, and they look for sly opportunities.
In 1984, Congress passed the National Minimum Drinking Age Act which raised the drinking age from eighteen to twenty-one. Since then, the total number of fatally injured drivers who were under the influence of alcohol has dropped by fifty-seven percent among people between the ages of sixteen and twenty. Despite this, many still believe that the national drinking age should be lowered to eighteen. However, not only does a drinking age of twenty-one save lives, but underage drinking is also linked to both sexual assault and drug use. In addition, scientists say that the human brain is not fully developed until the age of twenty-five and that underage drinkers are much more likely to develop an alcohol-related problem later in life.
Cholesterol is not a necessary part of a successful diet as the body can produce what is needed to function. On average I am consuming more than 300mg of total cholesterol a day. This can be harmful to health as it can lead to heart disease. A second weakness is that I have a high sodium intake. On average I am consuming about 70mg more than the recommended intake level.
The portal venous pressure is around 3-7 mmHg which is dependent on various criteria like “posture, increased intra-abdominal pressure like in coughing, compression , respiration, Valsalva’s manoeuvre and a number of biochemical mediators”1. Whereas the blood flow in the portal system is around 1000–1200ml/min and it contributes to around 72% of total supply of oxygen to the liver. The content of oxygen in the portal venous system is lower than the arterial blood, but it is at the same time significantly higher compared to that of the rest of venous system. There is never a consistent pattern of the hepatic distribution of portal blood. PORTAL HYPERTENSION - DEFINITION An elevated pressure of more than 12 mmHg in the portal venous circulation with the portal vein diameter of more than 13 mm or an increased gradient of more than 7mmHg in the portal system (difference between pressure in the portal vein and to that of the pressure in the inferior vena cava) is termed as portal hypertension(PHT).
Today in the United States about 4,358 people under the age of 21 years old die each year from alcohol-related car crashes, homicides, suicides, alcohol poisoning, and other injuries such as falls, burns, and even drowning. More than 190,000 people under the age of 21 visited an emergency room for alcohol related reasons in 2008 alone. Alcohol related motor vehicle crashes kill someone every 31 minutes and non-fatally injure someone every two minutes. That’s a lot of people gone because they wanted to go out and party and not think about the consequences ahead. In this essay I’m gonna give you information to why Underage Drinking is very very bad for you.
Drink, Drive, Die In the United States, almost thirty deaths occur daily due to a drunk driving accident; equaling one death every 51 minutes("Impaired Driving"). If drunk drivers were arrested on their first offense, this number could be reduced significantly. Drivers that were involved in crashes that resulted in death were six times more likely to have a prior conviction for driving under the influence than other drivers with no alcohol in their system("Impaired Driving"). Drunk drivers should be imprisoned on their first offense. In 2013, thirty one percent of all traffic-related deaths in the U.S. were caused by drunk driving.
An even more shocking fact has been put forward by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) which stated that on an average, two in three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime. This clearly blurts out the fact that alcohol and driving simply doesn 't go together. Teens and Kids: It gets more disturbing when teen drivers are considered in the statistics. Traffic accidents are the
When you think of drug overdose, what do you think about? You probably said Cocaine or Heroin, but what if I told you that there was another drug killing hundreds of thousands of people every year and was somehow going unnoticed. I implore you to read on if you haven’t heard of the shadow epidemic that’s taking American lives everyday. That epidemic is Xanax. Xanax is a very commonly prescribed anti-anxiety drug which became popular in the early 2000s and only continues to rise in popularity as it becomes more of a mainstream recreational drug.
Bovine milk has a ratio of casein to whey proteins of 80:20, however, human milk has a ratio of 40:60. The protein content of human milk decreases rapidly during the first month of lactation (14-16g/L during early lactation, 8-10g/L at 3-4 months, and 7-8g/L at 6 months and later). The reason behind this decrease is due to the diminution in whey protein concentration . These changes lead to a whey protein to casein ratio of 90:10 (early lactation), 60:40 in mature milk and 50:50 in late lactation. Within the casein fraction the relative proportion of various subclasses differ between bovine and human milk.
