The line of best fit gives the respiration rate of day-old seedlings as the concentration of NaCl they are exposed to increases. As NaCl Concentration increases the rate of cellular respiration decreases by .108 ppm CO2/g per second. This overall decrease throughout the data further supports our hypothesis. Discusion: The data collected in the experiment does support our hypothesis. By examining the data as a whole a trend of decreased cellular respiration in seedlings soaked in solutions with increased NaCl concentrations.
This was proven partially correct, because the algae showed signs of greenness for two weeks after we added the pollutant, but began to die off in the third week of our experiment. Furthermore, the amount of algae seemed to decrease, which was very surprising. As a matter of fact, this also happened to several other containers of algae, such as Positive Control and Carbonated Beverage. The amount of algae seemed to decrease, which was strange because we never removed the algae from its container. The sixth hypothesis predicted that if a chunk of petroleum jelly was added to algae, the algae would grow slower than the positive control.
The leaf length decreased at an average rate of 1mm per day over the 13 days. Plant D’s leaf width decreased for the remaining 10 days of the experiment. The leaf width decreased at an average rate of 0,2mm per day over the 10 days. There was a burst of 2mm growth between Day 16 and Day 19 which could have been due to increased sunshine resulting in more favourable conditions or the growth could have been random. From the graph on page 10 indicating Plant D’s growth, it is evident that Plant D began to grow at a standard rate due to the positive gradient evident.
Moreover, a significant decline in glucose, triacylglycerols and cholesterol with a percentage of 48.6%, 43.5% and 28.6% respectively was found in the diabetic group treated with the highest dose of blackberry juice (25%) when compared to the diabetic group treated with water only. However, the biochemical parameters of kidney function did not affected by blackberry consumption. In addition, the plasma antioxidant capacity (PAC) values shown indicated that regularly consumption of blackberry promotes the antioxidant capacity to intermediate levels. This effect was distinct when the non-diabetic group that treated with blackberry beverage only lost their PAC in a percentage of around 4 to 5% compared to the non-diabetic group that treated with water which had lost 12% of their PAC. Although decrease in levels of lipid peroxidation in plasma and kidney to intermediate levels with a percentage of 7.5% and 19% respectively was observed in the diabetic group treated with 12.5% of blackberry beverage, but generally, the values are not statistically different if compared with the diabetic group treated only with water.
The second most common neurodegenerative disease is Parkinson`s disease. The more coffee you drink, the lower the risk of this disease and it is shown that those who drink coffee on a regular basis have a 32-60 percent lower risk. “Bottom Line: Several studies show that coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease in old age.” Coffee Drinkers Have a Much Lower Risk of Type 2
The second group drank 100 ml of a lactobacillus drink. The last group received no intervention. The study lasted six months in which 16% of the cranberry group, 39% of the lactibacius group and 36% of the controlled group had experienced less than 1 reoccurrence of UTI. The ending resulted in a 20% reduction in absolute risk for the cranberry group. Even after the six months, the cranberry juice group still saw a significantly lower amount of UTIs in one
II. Fish Oil Fish oil supplements have been discovered to enhance memory and decrease psychological declination, on account of the large amounts of omega-3 unsaturated fats. Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) found in fish oil may also keep the development of brain plaques connected to Alzheimer's infection. Ingest fish oil supplements, containing no less than six hundred mg DHA, every day. For a proper and appropriate dose, counsel your specialist.
Drink a baking soda cocktail If you’re not on a low-sodium diet, researchers say you may get short-term relief from nicotine withdrawal symptoms by dissolving two tablespoons of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in a glass of water. Have this drink with every meal. Note: this is not recommended if you have peptic ulcer. 5. Pay yourself A federally funded, 1.3 million dollar study on smoking habits found that people who are paid 1 dollar for every day they go without a smoke are more successful at staying off nicotine than other quitters.
(Where removal of organics by activated carbon takes minutes, removal of chlorine literally takes seconds). The chlorine capacity of new activated carbon is 1 pound of chlorine per pound of carbon at a flow rate of 3 to 5 gpm/cu.ft. and a bed depth of 3 feet. Chloramine removal by activated carbon is a much slower reaction. The predominant species of chloramine in city water supplies (pH about 7 to 8) is monochloramine.
Analysis of Mammal Tooth Mass Loss in Laboratory Phosphoric Acid Results from the experiment of soaking tooth in phosphoric acid (Table 6 and Graph 1) show a very weak positive correlation between the concentration of phosphoric acid and percentage mass loss in each tooth. Initially from 0.1M to 0.3M, there is a sharp increase in percentage mass loss of tooth soaked within these solutions, however, as seen from the graph, the percentage mass loss of tooth within 0.4M and 0.5M starts to decrease steadily. The data points combined together almost show a parabolic relationship between the two variables. The R2 value is less than 0.5, suggesting a non-linear relationship between the two variables. Below will be an explanation of each reasons
