admin answers:

Tell the story of proteins and how they are made up of amino acids; provide an example of a protein and its function, including the importance of folding and shape; state how many amino acids are required by living organisms to make their proteins.

There are 20 amino acids. Proteins are made from amino acids. They play an important role in cellular repair and formation of cellular structures. Proteins in general have an amino terminus and a C-backbone. In terms of the protein structure – there is 1 (primary), 2 (secondary), 3 (tertiary), and 4 (quartnery)

Know the puposes and limits of cell growth. Why are cells small? What are the controls on cell growth? Know the general causes and consequences of uncontrolled cell growth, and the basic characteristics of cancer. Know the difference between benign and malignant tumors, and what metastasis is.

Uncontrolled cell growth will lead to the production of onco cells or cancer cellls. Benign tumor – the tumor is not growing any more, malignant – tumor is continuing to grow (cancerous) metasis – when cancer has “metasized” or has spread in a different area than where the tumor originated

Tell the story of the cell lifecycle. Recognize and differentiate the phases of the cell cycle. Know the purposes, phases and results of mitosis. Explain the different forms of DNA takes during the cell cycle and mitosis, including chromatin, chromatids and chromosomes.

There is a great animation that I found to this question – www.toxcafe.org (look in videos).
They also have a study group that you can be part of.

Robert asks…

Biology Help Please?

I just need to give the answers in a simple manner…

1. Meiosis involves both homologous chromosomes and chromosomes. What is the difference between these two?

2. What is the difference between co-dominance and incomplete dominance? An example please?

3. What are the BASIC steps of DNA replication?

4. How do tRNA, mRNA, and amino acids work together to build a protein?

5. Why is the scientific name of an organism based on the physical characteristics of the organism rather than a description of the organism?

admin answers:

1 Homologous chromosomes are chromosomes in a biological cell that pair (synapse) during meiosis, or alternatively, non-identical chromosomes that contain information for the same biological features and contain the same genes at the same loci but possibly different genetic information, called alleles, at those genes. For example, two chromosomes may have genes encoding eye color, but one may code for brown eyes, the other for blue.

Chromosomes are organized structures of DNA and proteins that are found in cells. Chromosomes contain a single continuous piece of DNA, which contains many genes, regulatory elements and other nucleotide sequences. Chromosomes also contain DNA-bound proteins, which serve to package the DNA and control its functions. The word chromosome comes from the Greek ????? (chroma, color) and ???? (soma, body) due to their property of being stained very strongly by some dyes.

admin answers:

I’ll take your word for it, but the whole “10 points per answer” thing sure looks suspiciously like a test to me.
Anyway, let’s see what we can do:
1. Eliminate the impossible, and whatever remains, no matter how implausible, must be the truth.
2. Entropy.
3. See 1. Also, you do know the difference between cata- and ana-, don’t you? Just wondering.
4. CO2 + H2O => C6H12O6 + O2
5. Nice one! It might help to know what ‘homeostasis’ is.
6. Tricky! Potentially, one of the more amusing questions.
7. Nice and straightforward, this.
8. Is glucose a carbohydrate, or is ATP? Also, you do know the difference between cata- and ana-, don’t you? Just wondering.
9. Good thing you have that book to refer to, isn’t it!
10. What a nice guy! He’s just given you the answers to both 5 and 6 in this question! Now all you have to do is remember what these ‘thermodynamics’ Laws are all about.
Good luck!
Incidentally, my cat is constantly breaking things, but my cousin Anna keeps putting them back together. So it all works out OK.

James asks…

Introduction to Metabolism?

1) How 1st law of thermodynamics might relate to the the term metabolism?

2) Explain how potential energy relates to cell metabolic pathway.

3) Describe the role and utilization of ATP.

4) Identify each as either anabolic or catabolic process:
portein synthesis, digestion, DNA synthesis, photosynthesis, cellular respiration

5) explain the importance of reversible metabolic reactions.

admin answers:

1)Living organisms must obey the laws of thermodynamics, which describe the transfer of heat and work. The 1st law states that the increase in the internal energy of a system is equal to the amount of energy added by heating the system minus the amount lost as a result of the work done by the system on its surroundings. This is an expression for conservation of energy. This applies to metabolism because while say for example glucose is being metabolized, energy will be conserved but this does not mean all energy will be usable by the cell. Metabolism gives off energy in the form of heat and does give energy in the form of ATP.
2)Certain molecules have higher potential energies than other molecules. This relates to their bond strength and energy. Basically starting molecules have potential energy and when they are broken down energy is given off.
3) Adenosine-5′-triphosphate (ATP) is a multifunctional nucleotide, and is most important in cell biology as a coenzyme that is the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer. In this role, ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism. It is produced as an energy source during the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration and consumed by many enzymes and a multitude of cellular processes including biosynthetic reactions, motility and cell division. ATP is made from adenosine diphosphate (ADP) or adenosine monophosphate (AMP), and its use in metabolism converts it back into these precursors. ATP is therefore continuously recycled in organisms, with the human body turning over its own weight in ATP each day.
4) protein synthesis- anabolic
digestion- catabolic
DNA synthesis- anabolic
photosynthesis- catabolic
cellular respiration- catabolic
catabolic is breaking down
anabolic is building up. I remember the difference by thinking about anabolic steroids. People use them to build muscles.
5) For example both glycolysis and gluconeogeneis are needed because sometimes a cell has excess glucose and needs to break it down for energy. Sometimes when an organism is starving glucose will need to be made. It is important that some of the reactions are reversible, but some reactions are basically irreversible so that the cycle can be regulated efficiently.

AP Bio questions on Cellular Energetics. Please help?

I really need some help on some questions I have for hw. It’d be great if some of you could help me get some of these answers.

What is the role of ATP in coupling the cell’s anabolic&catabolic processes?
How does chemiosmosis function in bioenergetics?
How are organic molecules broken down by catabolic pathways?
What is the role of oxygen in energy-yielding pathways?
How do cells generate ATP in the absence of oxygen?
How does photosynthesis convert light energy to chemical energy?
What is the difference between absorption&action spectra?
Compare and contrast C4, C3, &CAM photosynthesis.
How are the chemical products of the light-trapping reactions coupled to the synthesis of carbohydrates?
What kinds of photosynthetic adaptations have evolved in response to different environmental conditions?
What interactions exist between photosynthesis&cellular respiration?
Describe the pathways of anaerobic&aerobic respiration.
What factors affect the rates of respiration and photosynthesis?

admin answers:

Catabolic processes release energy, which can be captured into ATP, that can be used as energy to drive energy-needing anabolic processes

….

They’re broken down enzymatically…not sure what exactly the question is going for

oxygen acts as a terminal electron acceptor

alcohol fermentation, in yeast for example, and lactic acid formation in humans. Both these processes are needed to drive glycolysis, which doesn’t need oxygen

light energy is used to promote electrons to higher energy levels. As electrons fall back down to ground state, it’s coupled to the pumping of protons across a membrane to build an electrochemical gradient, which is used by ATP synthase to generate ATP

absorption spectra is the specific quanta of light that a compound will absorb to promote electrons up to higher energy levels. Not sure what you mean by action spectra

There’s too much to talk about C4/C3 plants. I suggest reading up on it yourself

NADPH produced by the light reactions (and ATP) is used to drive carbohydrate synthesis in the calvin cycle

well, if you read up on C3/C4/cam plants, you’ll see how each have adapted to their own environment. The main problem they all face is that they need to open up their pores to allow oxygen in, but at the same time, not allow water out of their leaves. Each one tackles the problem differently

carbs produced by photosynthesis can be used by respiration

aerobic requires oxygen: ie oxidative phosphorylation in the electron transport chain. Anaerobic doesn’t: ie glycolysis

generally, amount of resources: carbs, light source, oxygen. Also, different hormone in the organism can regulate it. Eg, in mammals, inuslin and glucagon regulate the rate of respiration

Mark asks…

What kind of childhood does the average kid have these days?

It’s not like when we were kids. Nowdays, you either live in a city or burb and you are paranoid about the happenings in the news and keep Jr. on virtual lockdown or scheduled to death…or, you attempt to give some freedom to the kid, and your neighbors call the cops on you for letting the kid play unsupervised in the fence because it’s “unsafe”. What to do?

Now they claim childhood obesity is epidemic. People moan and groan about all these big kids when most parents only feel safe when Jr. is slapped within view in front of the tube watching Batman or playing video games. They won’t allow the kid to play outdoors and be a kid, or they have busybody neighbors that think a 6 year old is unsafe in a 8ft high steel fence with two dobermans and a rottweiler for playmates.

What kind of childhood are kids having these days? I would have suffocated, withered and died at the hands of a parent this day and age when I was a kid. I was raised in the country. Things were different.

admin answers:

In these troubled times, things aren’t what they used to be! You’d like to give your children more freedom, but there are so many wackos running around that it seems like a risk to do so.
Neighbors used to mind their own business, but now they mind everyone’s business but their own, and are always in a hurry to tell you what you’re doing wrong.
Children are under more pressure too these days- from school to keeping up with the pack. Society on the whole has become more violent, which is understandable since you are constantly bombarded with violence on television and all the medias: they glorify it like it’s something cool! With that approach, we’re bound to see an escalation in the shootings,child predators, and all sorts of meanness.
Like you, I pine for the days of innocence ( the “Leave it to Beaver ” days ) but I think children do need some outside activities to stay healthy and well-rounded. Let the kid play outside and hang the neighbors!

Daniel asks…

Argument paper suggestions for obesity epidemic?

i have to write a argument paper on the obesity epidemic but i don’t know what angle to go from for the topic. any ideas?

admin answers:

Do it backwards. Check the research first and hone down your topic by the research that is available. Keep paring it down until it is clear and manageable. You can do it by age range. So, is it starting in infancy? You can do it by education, economy or geography. That last means that it is prevalent in certain regions and less so in others as in coastal zones or areas where the prevailing culture is involved in activity and good health habits. You can take the approach that it doesn’t exist. Call it a myth created by the medical sector to drum up profits or drug companies, that testing or BMI is a tool to bully parents and children. Or advertising is so sensitive, it can drive the little ones to demand bad foods and parents are so weary from working, day care and driving the little ones around, they submit to their demands. So, check with the local nonfiction reference librarian for the medical data base, order some journal articles and research. Or pick a disease, like Diabetes II and see what that leads you do. Or look for long term studies. My pick would be to take the adversarial position and argue it eruditely.

admin answers:

Good to see you on Yahoo Answers. Yeah!
.
Yes, there is an obesity epidemic in the United States. Go to any mall, Walmart, anyplace, you will see that there is, indeed, an obesity epidemic
Yes, there is a simple way to cure obesity. Diet, it’s simple, and it is a cure.. The trick is to make up your mind to loose weight in a sensible way. Nothing drastic, just eat only what is necessary for the rest of your life. Of course it’s difficult at first, but it will work.
There is no harm in the government being involved in what is good and best for our country.
One example:
Brain wash and teach children in grade school about drugs and diet. All children should be fully aware of the serious consequences of drug use, and poor eating habits.

How to tell someone that your photograph is your own?

I am taking a French class online, and one of the assignments was to turn in a photo of something French and translate it in English. I did that, but my teacher thinks I used a picture from the internet. How do I tell her that it is my own photo without sounding rude online? Here is her message:
“This is a great picture, (my name), and your explanation is wonderful. But we can’t use a picture from the Internet for this activity. We would like you to look around your own house or community and find something with French on it. It could be cosmetics, food labels, TV and iPhone manuals, soaps, clothes, anything you can find that has French written on it. Take a picture and send it in, telling us what it is.”

admin answers:

Take a picture of the object with yourself in the photo as well.

Write your name on a piece of paper, then take a picture of the object / paper together.

If the picture is yours, there are a number of ways to prove it. If you’re using a picture from the internet, not so much.

That’s not accurate for most people. Calorie needs vary according to your size, age and activity level. This site seems to have realistic requirements.

Carol asks…

How do I know what to read on the back of food labels?

You know those things that tell you how much sugar or how fatty a food is, Yeah what do I look at? I stopped drinking milk when I saw that it has 12.1 grams of sugar but the calorie count i pretty loe like 400 kj

admin answers:

Keep in mind your personal calorie limits—based on BMR, how active you are (physical activity), and how active your days typically are. Many women should aim around 1,500 calories simply for basic life functioning.

Look at the fats. Within that, look at how much of that fat is saturated & transfat. Trans fat is very bad for you and if you can outright completely avoid it, do it. Saturated fat is fine in moderate quantities. Everything that isn’t a trans & saturated fat is a healthy fat, like omega-3′s, omega-6′s, polyunsaturated, etc. Though most nutrition labels do not go into how much (for example) omega 3′s are in the product. They just state overall how much fat is in something (e.g., 10 grams), the amount of saturdated fat (e.g., 1gram), and the amount of trans fat (e.g., 0.2grams), leading the person to thereby conclude that the remaining 8.8g of fat are healthy fats.

Nutrition labels typically note how much of your % daily value (%DV) various items are—like fats, vitamins, nutrients, cholesterol, sodium, etc.

Look at the cholesterol. Keep in mood good versus bad cholesterol. These are called HGL v.s. LGL cholesterol. Again, keep in mind %DV.

Look at the sodium. Check how much daily value you get PER SERVING, and how much %DV that is.

Also, it’s good to look at nutrients. How much calcium is in it? Vitamin B12? Vitamin B6? Zinc? Iron? Etc etc etc

If you’re doing a high protein diet, pay attention to the grams of protein.

If you’re doing a low carb diet, pay attention to that. Remember, sugars are a carb, and are often listed under carbs. Again, %DV!.

Compare brands when shopping. Compare how many calories, how much fat, sodium, cholesterol, protein & carb/sugars are in each product and buy the healthiest one. That means fewer calories, less fat, less sodium, less cholesterol, less/more protein (diet depending), less/more carbs (diet depending), higher nutritional value (more calcium, more vitamin C, more vitamin D, more zinc, etc etc etc).

Good luck!! =)

Your Questions About Why Is A Healthy Lifestyle Important

Maria asks…

Attention: Why is this important? (click here for more details)?

When you look at the nutritional facts and analyzes on the milk cartons, cereal box, candy bars, canned of soups as displayed; you completely understand what percents of calories, sugars, fats, cholesterols, proteins, sodium they contain. Why is that important? How does the food pyramid lead to a healthier lifestyle?

-Im doing this for my research paper, so could you answer this quesiton?

Oh by the way, do you know any website that has a definite answer to my question?

thank you

and I hope you have a great day =)

admin answers:

The food pyramid doesn’t lead to a healthier lifestyle. The government got rid of it and replaced it with the My Pyramid. The My Pyramid allows for flexibility in eating styles based on people’s levels of physical activity and other things.

The old food pyramid served as a guide for what percentages of your daily food intake should come from what sources of nutrition (i.e. Relative amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats). It basically said that most of the nutrition should come from carbohydrates, some from protein, and very little fat. This model has been outdated by newer nutrition models such as the South Beach Diet, which helped lead to the reconfiguring of the old food pyramid.

Nutrition labels tell you how much carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are in a certain food. This helps you to choose foods that balance your diet so that you do not consume too much of one nutrient and too little of another. However, when you look at a nutrition label, it is not just the amounts of the nutrients that is important. It is also important to understand the sources of the carbohydrates, for example. Many nutrition experts say that sugars (simple form of carbohydrates) should be relatively low in the diet, while non-sugar carbohydrates (complex carbohydrates) should be relatively higher. Also people should have a certain amount of dietary fiber (non-digestable carbohydrates) in their diets. The nutrition label tells you how much of the carbohydrates are from sugars, complex carbs, and fiber.

Similarly, the labels also help you understand what type of fat is in the food. Trans fat? Very bad for you. This is an un-natural fat that leads to arthlerosclerosis. Saturated fat? Ok, not bad. Unsaturated fat? That’s the best kind. Fat is an essential component of a balanced diet. However, one should not consume too much fat relative to the other nutrients (carbs and protein). And, when eating a food with fat, one should choose the foods that offer the best kind of fat.

Food labels also specify how much proteins are in the food. They are weak, however, in that they don’t specify the quality of protein that is in the food. Protein quality is very important.

The labels can also help you to avoid high sodium foods, high cholesterol foods, or choose foods with more vitamins for example.

Why do women who are single are looked at as social outcast?

I’m a 21 year old college student and I am surrounded by losers. I’ve only dated two guys (well two halfs equals one). I chose not to date until I know for sure I found someone that is real. I never had a serious relationship and I get looked at differently from other girls my age who have. Why is that? Why is dating so important these days than maintaing an education and healthy lifestyles? It’s not all what people make it out to be. It is a lot of drama and hard work, dating that is.

admin answers:

This is not a ‘these days’ kind of thing…it has been this way forever.

See, there are more women then men in the world(54%/46%). So by the numbers, some women will be single for life. And worse then that, there are only so many ‘good’ guys, maybe only 75% of them…so that is even less of a chance of a woman finding a guy.

Betty asks…

How important is mental performance in being physically fit for sports activities?

A lot of people have recently taken up various sports as part of living a healthy lifestyle. Part of being physically prepared for sports is being mentally prepared as well. Why do you think mental performance is equally important to being physical fit for sports activities?

admin answers:

The answer differs for situations.

For the person who’s playing sports to stay fit, being mentally prepared helps dedication and confidence. The person doesn’t give up because of small failures; instead, they continue to play the sport, improve their fitness and health, and stay in good shape.

For the competitive athlete, as the athlete reaches their physical peak, physical gains (a) are more and more difficult to make, and (b) have less and less impact on success. It becomes more obvious that the mental game plays a large part in success. Given two people who are physically similar, the person who is more confident, strategic, and knowledgeable will have better success.

How do you feel with todays beef; the supercows?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nmkj5gq1cQU

Super cows super chickens to fatten them up for more food? I think it’s dirty… I already lost my appetite and think I’ll eat less meat or become vegetarian. Sorry, I can’t imagine it anymore I want to throw up. So what about this agenda wouldn’t it be ironic that we are doing this to cows and chickens that one day they overcome the world? just kidding though LOL.

Ok, serious answers only!

admin answers:

Well if you think about it in terms of functionality, this is an obvious way to go. Farmers are businessmen for the most part and they do whatever they can to get more product at cheaper costs. Instead of breeding more cows, breeding super cows end up being more profitable.

From a consumer standpoint, the food industry is a dirty one. There virtually isn’t a single item that comes to you clean or without some kind of pesticide or dirt or bacteria or something on it. It’s just the way it is. If you actually took the time to examine the manufacturing, processing, and handling of the stuff you eat, you wouldn’t eat anything ever again. The point is, is you have been doing it up until now and you are still here, and you aren’t sick or dying or anything.

From the animal rights perspective, it’s obviously controversial. We need food to eat, and the beef market is a highly optimized way of keeping that going. There are plenty of other alternatives, definitely, and it doesn’t have to involve killing another animal. Me personally, I can give a crap what my food has gone through to get to my plate. As long as it was prepared correctly to where I don’t get sick or something, I’ll eat anything. Food is food.

Richard asks…

How do I know if my belly fat is related to stress?

I’ve been working out 4 or 5 times a week for almost 2 years now, and I have been doing intense ab workouts with my routine. I have toned up, but not as much as I would like to. Can the access fat around my belly be related to stress, how would I know? I do not eat fattening foods either. Could it be my workout is not intense enough? What can I do? Please do not answer unless you are a personal trainer or expert of some sort. Please help! Thanks!!

admin answers:

I was in your shoes….asking the same question. I had to change everthing that I was doing. I had to walk walk walk walk walk. It is the one thing that I noticed a difference after doing it.

I lost 74 lbs now and 14 inches on my waist and 17 on my abdomen.

Could it be stress related?? Maybe, I think that was my issue but walking was a great stress reliever for me.

When I started all of this madness I was going to the gym twice a day morning cardio(treadmill/elliptical runner). Evening weights (easy stuff) read any fitness magazine that has a 20-30 strength work out in it and do that. Or do the “You Workout” found in the Book “You On a Diet”

Eating this is my day:

Every Morning: (pick one)

Kashi Cereal (GoLean,Whole Grain Puff etc.)1 Serving (read the box and Measure)with 1 Cup Non-Fat Milk

Or

Kashi TLC Granola Bars (Cherry Dark Chocolate are my favorite)

or

“You Diet” Breakfast Blaster I don’t make these often do not really care for them but its doable

Pretty much anything that you can look and see whole grains is a safe bet for the morning. For example when you look at Fruit Loops you see colorful circles but when you look at Oatmeal you see Oats….if you can’t tell by looking at it what the main ingredient is it is probably not good for you..

REMEMBER SERVING SIZES MATTER, MEASURE EVERYTHING!!!!!! Oh did I say MEASURE EVERYTHING!!!!LOL

Morning Snack:

Anything whole i.e. 1 whole carrot….1 whole apple 1 whole banana 1 serving whole grain (anything) if I work out between Breakfast and snack I have one slice of 100% whole wheat bread with 1/2 tbls peanut butter (100% is very important) Peanut butter has re-constructive proteins that help post work out.

Lunch

Lunch is the same thing every day with a few variables.

This week Is 2-3 oz low sodium turkey breast with light mayo Lettuce Tomato onion on two slices of100% whole wheat bread. And either 1 cup of popcorn, 1 serving wheat thins or 1 serving pretzels…..So as you can see I have a turkey sandwich every day but change up my side item.

This changes week to week……but it makes thing so much easier to stay on track with out having to think about lunch its automatic(sometimes its boring and I go off track (subway… But I get a salad, taco bell…but I get it fresco)I just get back on track the next day and don’t feel bad)

For me Next week I think is going to be tuna or soup(look in the book for some good ones)

Afternoon snack

I Love No Sugar Added Fudgesicles only a few calories and they are Chocolate…….

I usually go by the same example as my morning snack but I eat proteins as well…..when i first started i followed recommendations from the book I would eat almond, walnuts etc. They are good protein and stop hunger pangs, but I saw a stall in my weight loss and realized they had allot of fat even though they are Omega Fats that are good for you I did not like the scale on stand still if you know what I mean. I stopped with the nuts and started eating beans like black beans, pinto beans or any beans……beans are loaded with protein and high in fiber they are the best of both worlds…we eat beans 5-6 times a week.

Dinner

I could talk for hours…….

4-6oz baked chicken breast use Mrs. Dash Seasoning (look at the label 0 calories, 0 sodium 0 everything only potassium and that is good for you)

Frozen Whole green Beans 1 serving

Honeydew melon and strawberries about 1 cup total

and 1/3 cup of Bushes Vegetarian baked beans

or

Flounder Fillets with lemon, onion and peppers

garlic/ olive oil couscous

Broccoli cauliflower carrot mix about 2 cups

Sliced Strawberries 1 Cup with splenda

Everyday I try to make a different dinner…..heavens forbid the kids knew they were eating healthy….

The recipe I am about to give you is awesome and a great snack option for morning, afternoon, side dish with a meal I make it once a week and we love it…..the kids use it like a salsa I use it like a salad

One Can Black Beans Drained and Washed
One Can NO SALT ADDED canned corn drained
One Red Bell Pepper diced
One Purple Onion diced
One cup of Cilantro (measure first then chop)
one lime
Put everything in one bowl squeeze lime juice over it and mix it together…..put it in the fridge and let it get cool stir before serving……..very good for you and your digestive system.

Anyway I have talked long enough…….oh one more thing sorry

I went to the Dr. When I started this and as per her recommendation I take:

Morning:
400mg Magnesium
600mg Calcium with Vitamin D
Multivitamin (mine is prescribed but she said Flintstones are just as good)

Around 3:30 (I set my Alarm on My cell phone to remind me)
400mg Magnesium
600mg Calcium with Vitamin D

Magnesium help gives you energy and is found in all leafy greens I don’t like greens

And since most sources of Calcium are also loaded with fat (milk, cheese, any dairy) you will notice bone pains without it if you start working out.

At first it took me a long time to get use to taking pills but when I realized I can take these to prevent disease instead of taking medication to cure illness I was all about it…

So finally I am done just Remember

1 SERVING
MEASURE EVERYTHING

You will have a skinny belly in no time.

Charles asks…

Why did the government make alcohol legal?

but they are sticking their noses in about fatty foods. How many drivers kill from eating fast food? how many kids have gone on rampages because of eating fast food. Kids get fattening junk food at home besides getting it in restaurants. Will the gov soon be going into our homes, see alcoholic beverages, but raise he** about fatty food?

admin answers:

The government reflects the will of the people.

Why did the government first ban alcohol and then legalize it again? Public pressure (first from the prohibitionists and then from those who opposed the prohibitionists).

Why are they “sticking their noses in” when it comes to fatty foods? Same reason. A very vocal group wants them to.

Likewise, for the same reason, marijuana is still illegal in most states for anything other than medical use. A very vocal group doesn’t want it legalized.

Ken asks…

Why are people so cruel to disfigured people, knowing they can’t help the way they look?

Especially children. I hear vicious attacks all the time againsts childrens’ appearance…I mean people are just so cruel. My younger cousin happens to be autistic and slightly disfigured. It amazes me how many people say “oh that is one ugly child” or “wow is she ok?” She can’t freakin’ help it! I mean chubby kids CAN help being chubby, their parents need to stop feeding them fattening foods, but not disfigured children.

admin answers:

Dude, that’s just the way society is today. They make fun of people with all kiknds of diseases and disorders because theyre not like the ones that are non disabled. Which is so f***ing stupid because you can’t judge a person on how they look. Judge a person by how nice they are.

Some people are just stupid @$$es and need to lighten the f*** up. Ignore them.

Your Questions About Unhealthy Lifestyle Essay

Mark asks…

Do you think Barbie is a bad role model for children?

SOmone at my school did a speaach on that. Does she have a bad impact on kids?

admin answers:

As a role model, physically, yes. Barbie is a shallow concept of how a person should look. Scientifically, its impossible to have Barbie’s body, as the person would die with her dimensions, or at most, be very unhealthy. Barbie has a lot of other bad representations as well, such as her lifestyle and her possessions. Barbie’s personality, depending on the toy, is admirable, in some cases. Barbie is a lot of reputable things, career wise, and everyone should aim high with careers.

I believe its a little far fetched that someone would take the time to write an essay on how Barbie is a bad role model, however. One thing to keep in mind is, Barbie’s only a TOY! Yes, that’s right, she’s make believe. One thing that parents should do, as parents (:D) is set their children straight about their own merits and unique personalities. Everyone has role models, sure, but realism should also be placed.

To answer your question, I believe at a young age, everyone has a role model. To strive to be that person is normal, as long as reality is in play as well. The real answer can only be given by the person themselves, as each would have their own takes on that said character. Just remember, everyone’s unique, in some way. With age comes the knowledge to find that outcome. One shouldn’t model it after a mythical figure, especially as they grow.

John asks…

Is this a good claim for a persuasive essay?

The media affects the way teens and young children act and think by promoting drugs and violence, causing teens and young children to think less of themselves, and driving them to eat unhealthy food.

how can this claim be improved? please let me know.

admin answers:

You might want to condense the sentence and rephrase it … For example: “By promoting violence, drug use and poor eating habits, media influences young children and teens to make lifestyle choices that negatively impact their health and self-esteem.”

There are plenty of movies, TV shows, advertisements, music and music videos out there to support your statement.

Nancy asks…

I need emotional and ethical appeals for a essay.?

I’m writing a essay about how exercise makes you healthy. I need emotional and ethical appeals for it though. I’m kind of stuck. If you could give me two of each I would be so thankful. Any help would be appreciated.

admin answers:

Emotional appeals: Many deaths are a result of diseases which come from unhealthy or inactive lifestyles. Friends and family have to deal with the emotional pain of having a loved one with a disease from lack of exercise or an unhealthy lifestyle.

Ethical appeals: Living an unhealthy lifestyle is self-damaging. Exercising can lead to being happier and healthier, and thus being a better person overall.

That’s the best I can do.

Sandy asks…

Why can fast food be an bad habit?

I am doing an essay and is there any reasons why fast food can be a bad habit?

admin answers:

Fast food gets you into an unhealthy eating style
like you just eat on the run but you end up eating non-healthy non-homecooked meals with all these additives and unhealthy fats that ends up (if you continue to maintain this habit of buying fast food whenever youre hungry as opposed to cooking) will increase your cholesterol

so if you eat at home you’ll be able to control what you eat in terms of planning your meals so you get all the nutritional benefits from eating from all parts of the food pyramid

its always better to be less prone to atherosclerosis.

Even though snacking itself isnt a bad thing depending on your body type, genetics and your metabolism, because apparently research has proven that if you eat a lot but also exercise a lot or just have a lifestyle that is very active and energetic then your metabolism rate increases and it stimulates your nervous system to work faster and apparently that causes quicker reaction times and therefore you can think quickly and so forth

a tad deviant on your question but it has that research aspect that you could look into and discuss in your essay and somehow link it up.

William asks…

Is this too sensitive for a college essay/ personal statement?

So I want to write about health mistakes, I ate too much for a while, then went crazy loco calorie counting–exercise,etc. It wasn’t a full blown eating disorder but sure was close. I’m now healthy I didn’t realize both extremes were unsafe, unhealthy. I now understand. thiss actually why I want to get into health now, I realize how little is known & a healthy lifestyle mentally, socially and physically can change your life for the better.

admin answers:

I go to the University of California Santa Barbara. In high school and since then I have proof-read many friends’ personal statements and mentor high schoolers. I think it’s good just make sure you make it clear how this changed you as a person. It’s a good idea to be dramatic in the personal statement to make your point and make it something interesting for them to read. You should probably say something about how strongly you feel about educating others for proper nutrition. If you have observed friends with improper eating habits I suggest you incorporate that and perhaps stretch it a bit about your concern for them. Explain the difference you want to make like, “I know it would have been a lot easier if I had some information or someone to guide me…Youth struggle between the false perfection emphasized by media and the rising obesity rate. I want to give them the resources to make healthy decisions for themselves and ease them into a healthy perception of themselves and lifestyle.” You could also work in Michelle Obama into it, maybe saying she inspires you, since her focus as First Lady is a healthier America. So no I do not think it is too sensitive. I always tell kids to make yourself sound different and like the school would not be wasting their time on you. They don’t just want someone who will survive college, but someone who will make a difference in the world and that they would be proud to say graduated from their institution.

Your Questions About Nutritional Guidelines

Sandy asks…

can you give me an example of meals from breakfast lunch and dinner according to food pyramind?

admin answers:

If you look at a school lunch menu, those are planned according to the FDA nutritional guidelines. I work in a school cafeteria, and the requirements for what we have to make are pretty strict. The menu should give you a good idea of nutritional means.

Richard asks…

Where I can print out a calender or something. Ya know? Please leave a comment letting me know! Im trying to loose 20 pounds by the end of summer!

Clean eating does not have to be limited to a list of certain foods mapped out for you. You just need to create nutritional guidelines and stay within them.

Mandy asks…

how much milk is safe to drink?

I read somewhere that its not safe for women to drink alot of milk.How much milk is safe to drink?Is it to much to drink 2 glasses per day?
Thank you all for your answers :) you really helped me :)

admin answers:

I’m lactose intolerant, so none is best for me! =)

The usual nutritional recommendation is 1 to 2 glasses a day, and preferably non fat or 2%, so as to have a healthier drink (no or less fat). Unless there are new studies saying otherwise, or you have a sport specific requirement, I’d stick to what the nutritional guideline is for the average human consumption.
