There were two competitive days, Monday and Thursday of the same week. Each day there were three games. Randomly the players took a powdered caffeine energy drink dissolved in 250mL of tap water to get 3 mg/kg of caffeine per kg, or the same drink with no caffeine content. Eight players with caffeine and eight players with placebo for each competition day. The placebo drink and energy drink looked identical and had similar taste.
Most kids today drink sugary drinks when they get home or when go out to eat. Grocery stores sell soda and sugary drinks throughout the business (Leaf Group Ltd). Someone could be getting their groceries, and they would be able to get them with all of the other food or where they check out. “Researchers tracking 6,900 fifth-graders from public schools in 40 states through the eighth grade found that 85% of eighth graders reported drinking a sugared beverage at least once a week (about 30% said they drank them every day), regardless of whether their schools banned them or not.”(Alice Park). Most kids drink pop daily so it should not stop them from drinking it at school.
1. The 3 types of alcohol that I choose my fictitious student to drink were regular beer, distilled hard liquor, and red wine. My fictitious student drinks 6 regular beers per week, adding up to 894 calories per week, 4,470 calories per month, and 53,640 calories per year. They also drink 3 distilled hard liquor 1.0oz shots per week, adding up to 195 calories per week, 975 calories per month, and 11,700 calories per year. Lastly, my fictitious student drinks 4 glasses of red wine per week, adding up to 320 calories per week, 1,600 calories per month, and 19,200 calories per year.
Now there are 61 female employees at the factory out of the 251 that are employed here,” said Dee Ann when asked about changes in the factory over the past 30 years. “There has also been an addition of new silos since I first started.” When Dee Ann first started at Sidney Sugars, she talked about how back then they used to pack and load the sugar by hand. Typically only filling 5-10 lb. bags with sugar and hand loading them into trucks. “Now we have forklifts and
In a survey that was done, 77% of teenagers at a school had consumed a sugary-beverage in the past week and 27% had consumed one daily. Just one can of a sugary-beverage such as soda can contain up to 140 calories as well as 40 grams of sugar which is approximately ten heaped teaspoons of sugar, this is still one teaspoon more than the recommendation of nine teaspoons of sugar daily. These large amounts can cause problems possibly detrimental to health and the emotions of teenagers who already have raging hormones. The effects of insulin in the body is also dangerous and can cause problems in future. Eating a large amount of sugar causes a spike in glucose levels resulting in a “high” but once no more sugar is introduced into the body, glucose levels start to diminish.
To do so, a double blind study was conducted where all of the participants were not allowed to consume caffeine for four weeks and given replacement drinks. For half of the participants, the replacement drink contained caffeine and the other half received a drink without caffeine. After the four weeks was up, the participants were either given a caffeinated drink to taste test. The group that stayed on caffeine throughout the experiment reported pleasantness for the drink, and the group that was completely withdrawn had much lower levels of pleasantness being reported. This study will be extremely useful for my paper because it subliminally implies that caffeine dependence can indeed change the way people think.
A study published in the Journal of Analytical Toxicology reports that different types of decaf coffee actually contain caffeine in different doses, ranging from 8.6 to 13.9 mg. Another study found that as much as 20 mg of caffeine has been found in some types of decaffeinated coffee. Note also that a 12-ounce can of your favorite soda may contain 30 to 35 mg of caffeine. Of course, compared to a cup of regular coffee, which typically contains 95 to 200 mg of caffeine, this amount is relatively small. Experts warn, therefore, that drinking 5-10 cups of decaf coffee per day can equal the level of caffeine found in one or two cups of regular coffee, which could be harmful for people with kidney disease or others who are sensitive to the chemical. 5.
In the article "The Hunger in Our Heads", by Gretchen Reynolds, scientists from the University of Alabama experimented with thirty-eight college students to see if high blood flows could reduce the urge to overeat. The experiment found that half of the students who exercised for fifteen minutes consumed less calories than before. However, the other half of students who did not do any intensive exercise consumed more calories. The report does seem plausible. However, there were limitations such as the experiment only took place during lunch time and the exercise only involved running on treadmills.
As of now, only fifteen percent of high schools start at 8:30 a.m. or later, and forty percent start before 8:00 a.m. This is a big issue for the poor humans that can 't get their eyes shut at the early times of night. A National Sleep Foundation poll found that fifty-nine percent of middle schoolers and eighty-seven percent of high schoolers are getting less sleep than the recommended eight to nine hours of sleep every night. If you think that it 's not that big of a deal and everyone should just take a sip of some coffee, you are quite incorrect, young sir. Caffeination to get through the day does not make up for the sleep deficits the students go through every school morning.
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.
Also, 85% of middle schoolers have a sugary drink at least once a month. Plus 67% of eighth graders have access to sugary drinks at school. But everything has sugar in it. Also, if there actually was a warning label all americans would probably still drink soda. Evan Cook
The only reason I was able to reduce my spending in gas was because of the price of gas going down. I spent exactly twenty dollars on gas, which lasted me for a week based on my daily routine. Since the price of gas has gone down I’ve been saving four to six dollars a week. Currently I live with my parents so I don’t worry about buying groceries, but I spend a lot on junk food and sodas. Since tracking our spending I’ve given myself a budget of forty dollars a month for groceries.
