I chose to research this topic was because the thought that once said to be unhealthy snack is now being considered a snack containing some of the same ingredients that are in fruits and vegetables. I will explain both sides to the story to tell whether chocolate is good for your health or not. The first viewpoint that I will explain will be the healthy side to chocolate. I first found an article from CNN written by Catherine Ann Rauch explaining some of the upsides of chocol

    In 1955, the first meaningful achievement of bloodstain evidence was credited to Dr. Paul Kirk of the University of California at Berkeley (Nordby). First and foremost, blood contains a fluid portion we call plasma. Plasma contains natural segments of erythrocytes, leukocytes, and platelets. The nuclei of the leukocyte (white blood cells) are our source to DNA evidence. Furthermore, blood is similar to common fluids however, blood is held together by powerful cohesive molecular forces that generate a surface tension within each drop and on an external surface (Nordby). Furthermore, investig

    High Cholesterol Has Side Effects

    1015 words, 5 pages

This fat-like substance roams in the blood of the body and is vital to life, but when there is too much intake, the body can malfunction and cause problematic to sometimes-fatal outcomes. Occasionally, levels can be lowered by diet alone, such as decreasing the intake of foods that are high in cholesterol a

    Fats, proteins, and carbohydrates are all vital sources of energy for the body. Although carbohydrates are the largest source of energy, fats and proteins, are just as important. They contain essential amino chains not found in carbohydrates and are critical to Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) manufacturing on a cellular level. ATP takes the chemical energy from the food to the mitochondria and transforms it into energy for the cells. (Dictionary.com Unabridged definition, 2013) The mitochondria are long or round bodies found in the cytoplasm of a cell that produces energy from the ATP using the

These two reactions can be affected by a series of environmental factors and in this lab pH levels are being experimented on in order to see the effects of pH on oxygen production in photosynthesis and oxygen consumption in cellular respiration. To conduct this experiment, an enclosed apparatus was used and a number of leaf disks were used to represent the reaction of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. In

    Hunger is a feeling experienced when the glycogen level of the liver falls below a threshold, usually followed by a desire to eat. The often unpleasant feeling originates in the hypothalamus and is released through receptors in the liver. Although an average nourished human can survive weeks without food intake, the sensation of hunger typically begins after a couple of hours without eating and is generally considered quite uncomfortable. The sensation of hunger can often be alleviated and even mitigated entirely with the consumption of food. Hunger and Eating Based on Various Biology Theor
