Mary Williams has been overweight her entire life. She has temporarily lost weight by exhausting every diet fad on the market since the age of sixteen. In the past, Mary lost ten to fifteen pounds every other year, but never seems to keep the weight off for very long until she recently she began a voluntary abstinence from food of drink technique called intermittent fasting. Since Mary began intermittent fasting, she has lost 100 hours in one year and has sustained the weight loss. Various research studies have shown intermittent fasting is beneficial to fighting against obesity, reducing risks of chronic diseases, and help with psychological issues whereas conventional dieting seem not to work.
For example, cardiovascular disease including heart attacks and strokes cost approximately $315.4 billion in 2010. Upon interviewing an employee at the Cypress Aquatic Center, I found that there was not much use of the Center during most of the year. The Life Guard I spoke with said it was a cost of $3 for Adults and $2 for Children. He thought the cost and the fact that it was an outside pool were the reasons for the low attendance at the Aquatic Center. According to the article, entitled Why Swimming Is the Best Exercise Ever.
In the United States alone, more than 36 million people abuse illegal substances, however, most of these are not caused by the prescription of opioids. A drug abuse crisis is overtaking the U.S. Drug abuse kills over 200,000 people worldwide each year, although only .002 percent of these deaths are caused by the prescription of opioids. 117 million people suffer from a chronic illness, many of which need the prescription of opioids to function on a daily basis. Even though many people abuse them, doctors should not stop prescribing opioids because they are necessary for many people to function, most people who abuse them have had problems with other substances, and most opioid-related deaths do not come from doctor prescribed pills. First, they are necessary for many people to function.
By the end of prohibition, there were about 3,000 speakeasies in Cleveland alone, which means that there was no point of establishing the amendment when people could still drink.

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
“For Angelica Gallegos, the worst part has been going without a shower for five months.” (source two). This happened because she used too much groundwater and didn’t have any water left over. Accordingly, if we keep using too much water, there will be changes in land mass. “Scientists are already sounding alarm bells about pumping too much groundwater.” (source 3). Valleys and other land
In response to MADD, statistics show that over 1,000 lives of 18-24 year-olds are lost annually to alcohol off the highways, a figure that has been increasing since 1998. In addition, sixty percent of the deaths that occur as a result of underage drinking happen off the highways. Approximately one in six teenagers has experienced ‘black out’ spells where they could not remember what happened the previous evening as a result of heavy alcohol use. If the purpose of changing the drinking age from 18 to 21 was to have less injuries and death, then this law has not made a
Fossil fuels are running out with new plastic production accounting for 4 % of energy consumption. The data obtained below represents the amount of plastic one uses every day and weekly in a typical South African home. These products/objects can be anything from milk bottles, sandwich bags etc. Table representing the amount of plastic (any item) used by each interviewee on a daily and weekly basis Interviewee Daily Weekly Person one 6 20 Person two 12 24 Person three 14 27 Person four 17 32 Person five 9 17 Total: 58 120 *These values are estimated as I did not ask any of the interviewee’s to count their plastic waste. These results indicate that on average five people use 58 objects of plastic.
Firstly, they would drink 2.6 gallons every 5 days for 240 days. Secondly, 240 days overall divided by every 5 days would be 48 days of distributing drinking water (240/5=48). Thirdly, you would have 48 distributing days multiplied by 2.6 which is the amount of water distributed this would give them 124.8 gallons distributed in the 240 days to a single person (48 x 2.6= 124.8). In the final analysis, they have multiplied 124.8 by 4 since that is how many people are in their group which gave them 499.2 gallons of water used (124.8 x 4= 499.2). Since only 41% of the cow and bull’s weight are consumable the group has a total of 409147.2 grams, or 902 servings, of consumable meat divided by four (902/4=225.5) then into 1.5 servings, or 680.4 grams, per 2 days and 3 bushels of wheat that is plenty for the first 120 days.
Source #2 says “when it first went dry , we used to drive 45 minutes away to my daughter 's house to have a shower . 45 minutes everyday just to take a quick 20 minute shower sounds like a hassle doesn 't it ? That just isn 't right to me and imagine how much these people are spending just on gas money in a week ! It 's probably a fortune . Another big use in their daily life is also being revoked and it 's the use of the restroom !
