3. Do any of the articles' claims seem too good to be true?
Does it seem that the authors are seeking personal gain in any way?

The United States produces 75 billion eggs per year, around 10% of the worlds supply. Of the 75 billion eggs, 60% are used by consumers, 9% go to the food industry and the remaining 31% are turned into egg products (CDFA).

Eggs

...EGGS "A ""A Hne"A hen is only an egg's way of making another egg." ~ Samuel Butler making another egg." "Besides for being a staple ingredient in cookie dough, we like eggs because there's lots of science involved with them." ~Blake Rider One of the most notable characteristic of an egg is how much an egg white can foam up. Why does this happen? Eggs are approximately 90 percent water and 10 percent protein. There is an electrical attraction between water molecules (for this reason you won't get any results from trying to whip up water alone) and when you beat them you are allowing the proteins to break apart the water molecules. When they get farther apart, the electric attraction decreases which allows the egg whites to spread out and bonds to form between the proteins. Over beaten eggs really means that too many bonds formed between the proteins and you can actually help to prevent this by adding vinegar. Vinegar is an acid so its particles are positively charged. These charged particles join charged protein, neutralizing them and making them less likely to form bonds with other proteins. Cold eggs whites will be more difficult to beat into a foam, because the air bubbles will be smaller and more difficult to seperate than egg whites at room temperature. Boiling eggs: Have you ever hard boiled an egg and it ended up with a flat edge on one side? Eggs have a small pocket of air trapped in-between the flatter end of the egg and the......

Nutritional Practices

...Running head: MODULE 3 ASSIGNMENT Module 3 Assignment K.M.W. Grand Canyon University HLT 324V April 02, 2011 Nutritional Practices Unconventional childbearing rituals have been around for many years. This history of childbirth explains some of these rituals. I cannot personally compare experiences with childbirth. I have yet to have a child. This Essay explores various methods of giving birth, and developed changes that have occurred since then. We have advanced technology to deal with all kinds of labor. Being a medical professional I have seen especially difficult deliveries. There are many complications that a woman can have during the labor process such as: breach babies or obstructed labor. Our access to sterile procedures, diagnostic machinery, and modern equipment helps many women through these complications safely. Access to a variety of medication, has come a long way from giving the mother chloroform or a bottle of whiskey for easing pain. These women did not have a choice of who is with them during the labor, methods of decreasing pain, or infection free birthing areas. Today we are free to choose these things, except for emergent birthing situations. This is important, considering that all males were banned from delivery rooms until the mid-1900’s! Men were not allowed anywhere near childbirth situations. There is a story of one Doctor, Dr. Wertt of Hamburg, in 1522, had the idea to dress up in women’s clothes to gain entry to a......

Gaining too little weight can produce an under-nourished infant. While, over-nutrition also poses a risk to both mother and child. Nutritional Needs for a Developing Embryo The process of prenatal development occurs in three stages starting with the germinal stage that is the first two weeks after conception. The embryonic stage is the period of the third week through the eighth week. And the ninth week until birth is the fetal stage. During the period of gestation that is the time between conception and fetal development in the womb. The embryo gets nourished from breaking down the lining walls of the uterus. When this source is no longer available nourishment comes from the mother’s placenta that will feed the baby from five weeks onwards to birth ("Stages of Prenatal Development", 2015). Health Concerns Associated with Poor Nutrition When health problems occur, it can involve both mother and baby. Some women have health issues before pregnancy starts, while others develop issues during the period of gestation. Either way it leads to complications.

The patient was able to gain the necessary tools to make the changes in her nutrition. Keyword(s): Nola Pender, Health Promotion Model Nutritional Self-Assessment There is more to eating to become healthier than just eating a smaller amount of calories.

Nutritional Assessment

...Nutritional Assessment Duane Daquioag NURS 225 WestCoast University Nutritional Self-Assessment Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women. “It can be used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health complications” (CDC, 2015) but it is not a reliable source of information to get a person’s body fatness or health of an individual. My BMI score is 24.4; to find that, I divided my weight in kilograms (70.9 kg) by the square of height in meters (2.9 m). HAMWI is used to calculate the ideal body weight of an individual based on their height and body frame (FitnessHealth101, 2016). To calculate for my ideal body weight I should add 6 pounds to every inch above 5 feet and add it to 106. So mine would be= 106 + (6 x 7)= 148 lbs. According to HAMWI, my ideal weight should be 148 lbs but my current weight is 156 lbs; so that means that I am currently 8 pounds over my ideal body weight. In accordance with BMIs standards, I am within the healthy range of my body mass index, but as HAMWI stated, I am 8 pounds over my ideal body weight. “One concern with the accuracy of the Hamwi approach to determining your optimum weight is that an individual's lean muscle mass is not taken into account. This may produce a result that underestimates the optimum weight for an individual” (FitnessHealth101, 2016). Hamwi does not take into account the weight of my lean muscle mass and I do weight lifting as part of my......

Nutritional Health

...Concepts of Nutritional Health Food: It is any substance eaten to nourish the human body. Food can come in two forms; solid or liquid. It can be taken in by the mouth, feeding tube, or for those with health issues it can be directly put into their veins. Food provides your body with energy to enable you to work, grow, repair and participate in activities. The types of food you eat can affect the efficiency of many of your body’s processes. A variety of nutrients make up our food such as carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals. Diet: This refers to the varieties of food and amount an individual ingests daily. Diet does not necessarily relate to a weight loss diet, it also includes every meal, snack and drink a person consumes. A diet is also used to measure the variety of food a person eats to control their nutritional intake to help them lose weight. When a person is on a ‘diet’ they carefully observe what they eat and the volumes in which they eat to help cut out or lower the amount of food containing higher levels of fat to lose weight. Meals and Snacks: A normal diet traditionally includes three meals a day although in today’s society many people get their food or nutrients from eating snacks throughout the day or between meals. Meals are a balanced amount of food which contains the nutrients that our body needs to function efficiently. A snack is a small amount of food which we eat between meals to keep our body fuelled; they are not necessarily unhealthy......

Nutritional Analysis

...Nutritional Analysis of Horse Feed Darrie Lewis Partnered with Danielle Henry Introduction Animal nutrition is essential for meeting livestock nutritional requirements in maintaining acceptable performance, growth, and development. Animal nutrition focuses on dietary needs of domestic animals in agriculture or food production. In order to properly give the right balance of nutritional needs, one must know what the animal need in order to properly grow and develop. The amount of feed one gives to an animal should include an overall balance of essential nutrients to ensure successful production. An optimal nutritious diet should include intakes of amino acids, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. The importance and our overall objective of this lab was to determine the different nutritional aspects in animal feed. In our case, my group and I analyzed horse feed. We were to determine the amount and percentages of ether extract, protein analysis, NDF, acid detergent fiber, ADF, and ADL in an amount of feed.
