These three articles bring up multiple issues created by the mass popularity of bottled water. Many Americans are used to simply getting bottled water and fail commonly to recycle them. One change to a seemingly everyday decision could have a huge impact on our health, environment, and finances at the same time. Bottled water is now viewed such scrutiny that many would not have expected
This is one of the reasons why most of Western Europe has ruled against fluoridation (50 Reasons to Oppose Fluoridation). Once fluoride is put in the water it is impossible to control the dose each individual receives because people drink different amounts of water. Being able to control the dose a patient receives is critical, because some people drink more water than others (50 Reasons to Oppose Fluoridation). Lastly, fluoridation is not necessary. Most western, industrialized countries have rejected water fluoridation, but have nevertheless experienced the same decline in childhood dental decay as fluoridated countries (50 Reasons to Oppose Fluoridation).
“Although doctors may recommend colon cleansing in preparation for a medical examination of the colon, most don't recommend colon cleansing for better health or to prevent disease.”(Picco,MD.,2015) Colon cleansing has many different pros and cons with it. Many believe that our body needs a colon cleanse that will help breakdown all the toxic buildup while other believe nothing is needed since our body does this on its on. I believe that the information provided from the article Colon Cleansing: Is it helpful or harmful because there is no proven results of colon cleansers preventing diseases. After reading this article as well as the chapters in the book I was able to get a clear understanding of how different parts of our body work. I don’t
The article,”The Wrong Way to Think about California Water” by Michael Hiltzik, touches on the way citizens think about the drought. For example, many Americans worry about the concussions of bottled water on the environment. The article, however states that people should not be worried about bottled water, because,”The entire nation consumes a bit more than 10 billion gallons of bottled water per year. California’s total water usage is 38 billion gallons per day.”(Hiltzik). Despite the fact that plastic water bottles are severely overpriced, bottled water is not the main cause of the drought.
Illicit drugs are known as the drugs that are illegal to make, use or sell as they are addictive. Speaking of drugs, people usually relate them to drug abuse, drug addiction and drug-related issues. People do not realize that a number of illicit drugs are actually scientifically proven to be medically useful to treat diseases. There has been numerous of arguments about the legalization of drugs and there is not a solution to this issue yet. There are actually a lot of pros and cons of legalizing drugs which most of the people did not notice of.
Main problem is that they usually contain a very poor combination of ingredients that do not complement each other. Common energy drinks usually contain large amounts of sugar and as we've established caffeine. Body's natural ability to absorb water, making it a potentially dangerous drink, especially for that of athletes:These common problems and concerns with more popular energy drinks have not gone unnoticed. People have been calling for a natural and safe energy drink for some time now and some companies have heard that call. It has been a difficult task to create a healthy energy drink that can provide comparable energy levels to leading brands and taste is always a
They feel or at least what some are understanding is that Rick Snyder should not step down because he probably can’t do much for The Flint Water Crisis nor might he know how to stop the situation or they might not hold it over his head considering that people hold the bad stuff over his head not including all the good things that Rick Snyder has done. However, what they don’t realize is that Rick Snyder decided to take water from the poor community instead of the more fortunate especially not realizing the fact that if you're taking stuff from the less fortunate where could they possibly go to? But, instead you take it from the fortunate even though they have more money to at least get back on there feet. Another reason why some people don’t understand is that it's been getting worse, not better. So, all of the apologies were unneeded.
Name: Shah Fahad Madonna ID: 218445 Subject: Ethical Considerations in Leadership Date: Mid-term Exam Do Environmental Restrictions Violate Basic Economic Freedoms? No, I don't believe that environment restrictions violate basic economic freedoms. This is because according to me there is environmental crisis in the world. However, environmental problem is not seen at a global scale by most of the people but in reality it is seen as a small problem. The real fact is that, the general public is unaware of the accurate information.
Anti-vaccine supporters strongly protest against vaccines primarily because they contain harmful ingredients. Indeed, this is true, but many pro-vaccine supporters urge that these ingredients are found in such minuscule quantities that they are deemed harmless. In fact, they claim that “Children are exposed to more aluminum in breast milk and infant formula than they are exposed to in vaccines.” Not to mention, the CDC and the FDA insist that vaccines are thoroughly tested and made safe. Although countless anti-vaccine protesters believe that vaccines are the origin of many autism cases, there is no definite evidence proving a link between vaccinations and autism. In 1998, scientist Andrew Wakefield published an article stating that his experiment has proven that vaccines cause autism.
It was 1945 when the birth of water fluoridation transpired. Water fluoridation is when fluoride is added into public water supplies and it is used in the United States; however, it is not used in other areas in the world, such as the United Kingdom, the Philippines, China, and many other cities, countries and states. The presence of fluoride in water is a very controversial topic that people do not take the initiative to discuss. Some people favor the idea of having fluoridated water sources because of its benefits towards the strengthening an individual’s personal hygiene. On the other hand, some people oppose the idea of having fluoridated water sources because it is viewed and valued as a dangerous chemical that is hazardous to an individual's
I appreciate how the CDC displays the information in a daunting manner. Reading about meth, through the CDC made me more afraid of meth than the NIDA did. The NIDA also contains a note section that contains other information and studies that are very helpful in bringing the reality of meth use to the reader. The CDC does not directly have a website platform for meth as does NIDA. It is disappointing that the CDC, a leader in health information, for the US, does not have a page informing the population of the effects of methamphetamines.
One, bottled water is tap water. The main point of Tapped pointing out this fact is to show that you can get tap water free and should not have to pay for it. Two, later in the film they suggest that they find all kinds of harmful substances in bottled water, what does regulation of bottled water have to do with health if 40 percent of it is tap water
Phew! You just came back from a run and you are really thirsty, should you drink from the disgusting water fountain, or should you buy a water bottle from the vending machine? To some people water fountains are gross, yet they are better for the environment, cheaper and the water is healthier. Whereas, plastic bottles contain many harmful chemicals. That is why 75% say that tap water is better.
Fluoride, the government’s way of saying “we don’t want you to succeed”, has been poured into the water supply by the government for years and has still gone strong. The government thought it was a great way to protect our teeth, but instead it caused more pain which brought forth the fluoride conspiracy. The fluoride conspiracy can be proven because there has been extensive research on the subject, and the side effects of fluoride are easily visible and they include lower IQ, certain cancers, and the feeling of docility. The U.S is ranked low on the totem pole of countries in terms of education and some don’t know why. The reason for this lower standard is because of Americas own screw up.
Where the weapons were obtained in the sandy hook shooting and the Orlando shooting were dramatically different. Lanza took the weapons from his mother who owned them legally, but Lanza was unable to have firearms because of his mental illness. Mateen was cleared by the federal background check even though the FBI did some monitoring on him. His radical beliefs caught the eye of the federal government, but someone 's religion can not be used to stip individuals of their rights. Lastly he explains that, “cultural beliefs are significantly related to people’s opinions about gun control, but the strongest, most consistent predictors of people’s gun control preferences are their political beliefs and affiliations,” (Wozniak 2).
