These chemicals in their raw state are very powerful and if consumed in their raw state can lead to death. Most of them are several if not several hundred times sweeter then regular cane sugar. But yet have no nutritional value to the human body. This causes a problem when the artificial sweeteners reach the liver and kidneys and get absorbed into the blood stream then move throughout the body. For instance, aspartame, witch is found in Sweet 'n Low, is very harmful to the brain. “Aspartate and glutamate are found in aspartame and behave as neurotransmitters in the brain. Having an excess of these neurotransmitters kills certain neurons by allowing the inundation of calcium. This influx provokes excessive amounts of free radicals which kill the cells.” (Edward, PHD). Aspartate kills brain cells and disrupts neurons in the brain. This can also affect the central nervous system throughout the body by preventing the electrical signal sent by the brain to reach the targeted area of the body. This type of chemical is also used to synthesize formaldehyde. This is by far one of the worst man made sweeteners on the market. The FDA has also put warning and lifetime intakes on artificial sweeteners to help prevent any side effects. “The FDA has also established an acceptable daily intake (ADI) for each artificial sweetener. This is the maximum amount considered safe to consume each day over the course of your lifetime. ADIs are

In his expository text, “Blink”, Malcom Gladwell uses rhetorical questions to get the reader interested in the content of the book. This trend begins in the introduction where Gladwell introduces the idea that the subconscious mind has extraordinary abilities that people do not know about. After the Getty museum was asked to buy a Greek Kouro statue that was in almost perfect condition. The Getty performed an investigation to determine whether the Kouro was a forgery or not. When introducing this event, Gladwell asks the reader, “Was the statue consistent with other known kouroi?”(Gladwell 2), and “Where and When had the statue been found?” (Gladwell 4). While Gladwell obviously does not expect the reader to answer

You are going to the cafeteria to buy lunch. You are starving and pick up a tray to get food. The first thing you see are chicken nuggets, then you remember you can’t eat chicken nuggets because you are allergic to gluten. So you get some mashed potatoes and fruit instead. You want to get dessert but the brownies have peanuts in them and you’re allergic to peanuts too. When you want a drink, the only drink available is milk, but you are lactose intolerant. You go to pay, with only a little bit of mashed potatoes and fruit on your tray. Schools do not have enough lunch options for kids with allergies. 1 in 13 kids is affected from a food allergy and 40% of these kids have life threatening reactions. This is why I believe schools should make

This article was about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. This is relevant to our course because in order to treat diseases like this we need to know how the body works in order to create treatment plans such as the ones in this article. I know of a few different people who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease. It really is not as uncommon as I thought. Reading this article kept me interested since I know people who have it. This made it easier to learn about because I would think about my family members and how they each have to deal with this disease. I wanted to learn more information so I could better understand what is going on with my family members who have Crohn’s disease. Since I was the only student who participated in the group discussion, I would have liked it better if I could have heard other students’ tell their personal relationship with someone who has inflammatory bowel disease. Also, I learn better if a student explains a complicated concept to me rather than a textbook or teacher. Sometimes if a classmate says something, then that helps me to
It is Thanksgiving Day at the Thankful 13 half-marathon in Lehi, Utah. In a sea of runners, a 24-year-girl with a coral-racing shirt, freckles, and a blond ponytail swishing back and forth approaches the finish line. Her blue eyes focus straight ahead, ear buds in; she does not hear the cheers as she breezes by. She is “in the zone.”
