Natural or Not?
Breastfeeding is one of the most important decisions a parent must make for their child. Breastfeeding is when the mother feeds the child milk from her breast (Breastfeeding). Over the last few years, there has been so much controversy in the media whether women should be allowed to breastfeed in public. Despite the controversy, women should be able to breastfeed in public because it improves infant health, it has psychological benefits, and it makes women feel less ashamed and embarrassed.
Many medical and public health organizations support breastfeeding and say it improves an infant’s heath significantly. Breast milk is a rich, creamy liquid that is high in protein and low in fat (“History of Breastfeeding”). It contains the protein, vitamins, and fat an infant needs. Breast milk contains antibodies that help fight infection and it’s easier to digest. It also reduces the chances of allergies, asthma, respiratory illnesses, and overweight issues in the future. Some studies also suggest that breastfeeding lowers the risk of certain cancers and diabetes. Children that were breastfed have even been proven to have higher IQ scores. However, breastfeeding doesn’t only benefit the child. Studies show that women who breastfeed have a smaller chance of having ovarian and breast cancer (“Biology of Breastfeeding”).
Besides the physical benefits of breastfeeding, breastfeeding also has many psychological benefits. Researchers say breastfeeding infants makes them feel more comfortable and makes it easier to adjust to his or her new life outside of the womb. Also, breastfeeding releases hormones that make your body feel more relaxed and nurturing. Ultimately, breastfeeding benefits both the mom and child and it allows them to share a special bond that will become extremely important in a child’s development.

Natural Resources

...Natural Resources and Energy Paper 9-2012 SCI/256 Natural Resources and Energy Paper The first national park in the United States was Yellowstone National Park, which was created in 1872. At this time, the concept of a national park was new for people; however, it was a great thing because it allowed the people the ability to preserve and protect the best of what they had for the benefit and enjoyment of all future generations. Yellowstone National Park is located in a rugged region where the states of Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana come together. This rugged region is made up of alpine and sub-alpine forests, as well as, mountains of high elevation. Recognized for its ecological value, Yellowstone national park was designated as a Biosphere Reserve in 1976; a biosphere reserve is an environmental area which is highly sensitive that has protected status, which is managed primarily to preserve natural ecological conditions. This paper on Yellowstone national park will be discussing the impacts associated with agriculture, the effects that a growing human population can have on the resources of an ecosystem, a management practice to help with sustainability, the risks and benefits for extracting renewable and nonrenewable energy resource for the ecosystem, and management practices for sustainability and conservation of natural resources and energy. The Yellowstone National Park is home to many large animals such as bison, elk, grizzle bear, and wolf. The enactment of......

Natural Preservatives

..."NATURAL PRESERVATIVES" Anthony C. Dweck Research Director, Peter Black Medicare Ltd., White Horse Business Park, Aintree Avenue, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, UK. BA14 0XB SUMMARY This paper looks at the theoretical development of a natural preservative system using the author's data base on medicinal plants as a source of references. The legal aspects of this concept are considered. The traditional methods of preservation, many taken from the food industry are summarised. The use of alcohol, glycerine, sugar, salt, dessication, anhydrous systems and temperature are amongst examples considered. The definitions of the many words used to describe the act of preservation are considered, and the confusion that results from the presence of the many synonyms is considered. e.g. antimicrobial, antibiotic, antiseptic, bactericidal, etc. Specific organisms are identified as being of particular interest, especially those standard organisms that form part of the B.P. challenge test. These include Candida albicans, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Aspergillus niger and Staphylococcus aureus. A cross-section of plants mentioned in the literature as being specifically targeted at these organisms are considered. The paper concludes with Appendices of plant materials that have mention in the literature according to specific definitions, which may give researchers a potential introduction to future research.

A Natural Extension

...The article, “A Natural Extension” showcases the ever-increasing business of catering. Adding catering capabilities is appealing, although it is not simple. This article gives you an idea about the depth of catering. Throughout the article, five operators offer evidence that catering can be done. Many existing companies are expanding their restaurant operations to cater to Catering. The decision to introduce catering services to an existing foodservice operation is hardly the no-brainer it may see, especially in belt-tightening time. For one thing, the same sluggish economy that may spawn the revenue-generating idea can work against it. For operators casting about for new ways to bulk revenue, catering is an obvious option. A natural extension of many food service operations, it builds on structures, systems and skills already in place to run the core business. Tom Lavaris says, “The catering business is fraught with all kinds of potentially difficult issues.” Mr. Lavaris is the executive vice president of operations for Seattle-based Schwartz Brothers Restaurants. Catering can be a significant boom to business; however, there are potential pitfalls. According, ingenuity, hard work, an intuitive sense as to how one door can open to ever more venues catering can be momentous roar in commerce. Just like any business, profitably is judged by increases in the bottom line. Catering is no different. However, longevity is the key to success. How well a company faces adversity and is...

Natural Selection

...Natural Selection Lab Report Natural selection relies upon the assumption that all organisms produce more offspring than can survive in an environment demonstration limited resources. In this lab, we are trying to see which prey (beans) would survive and which predators (students with different type of mouthpart) would survive. I think green bean would survive because it is very tiny. The predator use hand as mouthpart would survive. To start the lab, we need seven different beans together, which includes split pea, kidney bean, large white bean, black bean, pinto bean, small white bean, and red bean. Each type of beans has to be 100. Once each of these collections of beans is measured out, the entire collection can be dumped on lawn for the predators to pick up. Then we select 15 students and divided evenly into 5 groups: knife, fork, spoon, hand and clothespin. These mouthparts are the only part of the predator that can touch the ground. Each predator can then receive a cup, which will serve as the stomach into which the prey will be placed. The prey gathered. Only their mouthparts may pick up the beans. The beans must then be placed into their stomach. The predators had 5 seconds to simultaneously pick up as many prey as they can. At the end of 5 seconds, each predator counts the number of beans. The predators are then ranked according to the number of prey they picked up. The result of first generation are 0 knife survivors, 2 fork survivors, 3 spoon......

Natural Disasters

...An example of a trauma caused by a natural disaster is hurricanes. Hurricanes can cause people to lose their homes, their cars, and all of their other belongings. The people affected by this natural disaster have to relocate and live in shelters. An example of a personal trauma would be sexual assault. The potential affects these events have on the survivors are grief, sadness, anger, shock, and flashbacks( Shallcross, 2010). According to Shallcross, the survivors of hurricanes also have to rebuild homes and neighborhoods and reconnect with their family members. The survivors of sexual assault are depression, fear, anger, and guilt. The potential effects of these traumas on first responders can cause physical and psychological stress. The first responders of these traumas have fast heartbeats, can become emotionally scarred, and internalize effects on the survivors. The counselor’s role on treating the survivors of trauma is a very important one. All counselors must be trained in trauma-related crisis and know the basics of disaster response( Shallcross,2010). Counselors have a different role when treating first responders affected by trauma than survivors because the first responders are trained to save lives but when they cannot they are stricken with guilt. A mental health counselor could develop VT or STS by becoming too emotional involved with her client. For example, if a mental health counselor counsels a client and they are talking about the rape and the......

...Natural Resources and Energy at Wekiva Springs Sharmeen Hugue SCI/256 March 20, 2014 Natural Resources and Energy at Wekiva Springs Wekiva Springs is the 2nd largest spring located in Apopka, Florida within the Wekiwa Springs State Park. In 1970 Wekiva Springs State Park opened to the public. The park occupies 7,000 acres, with the main attraction being the Wekiva Springs. The cool crystal clear water of the springs range in depth from just inches to five feet and maintains a 72 degree temperature. Wekiva means "flowing water" in Creek. The spring flows from a small 20 feet deep cavern, which spreads into a deep cave. This area was once populated by the Timucuan Indians. Wekiva is home to an array of wildlife that includes foxes, river otters, white-tailed deers, Florida bear, great blue herons, great egrets, alligators, and a variety of tropical birds. The aquatic preserve is also the winter home of over 325 West Indian manatees, which is a federally protected species ("Wekiva Spring", 2012). This paper will discuss the springs and the associated agriculture, effects of human population on the spring, sustainability, risk and benefits of nonrenewable and renewable resources, and the sustainability and conservation of Wekiva Springs. Identify Associated with Agriculture The associated topic linked with Florida's agricultural life cycle is a resource located in the central part of Florida. According to the......

Natural Law

...EUH 2000 0010 September 11, 2003 Natural Law – Essay #1 Cicero felt that Natural law is something that was created divinely before humanity was capable of doing so for itself. It is a morality ingrained in us since creation, before there was any set government or politician to create laws. “This power is not only older than peoples and governments but is of the same age as the God who protects and rules both Heaven and earth.” Though he concedes that, “Men introduced such laws to insure the protection of citizens and states, as well as the peaceful and happy lot of mankind.”[1] So to Cicero, as I would believe to any ancient mind, since Natural Law is divine it supersedes anything man-made. It is also important to realize that these Natural Laws have lasted the test of time, if you take into consideration that most of these laws are found in the Ten Commandments. I personally feel that Natural Laws supersede any man-made law because these laws are the backbone of a society’s moral structure. Now what has to be considered is, what is Natural Law? I can concede what is considered to be some Natural Laws, do not steel, kill, covet, etc. But is it also Natural Law to not have premarital sex or to not masturbate? The fact that I can bring up these qualifications to question what is Natural Laws is probably why modern lawyers do not use them in their arguments. I can say, that I personally do not follow the covenants of Christianity or any religion similar, i.e...

Natural Law

...1) Explain Natural Law Theory. Natural Law refers to the laws of nature; it is also the basis of all science, observing what happened in nature, it is also a law that stretches across all cultures and ways of life. It is based on the religious idea of a God who creates everything with a purpose and end in the mind. Natural Law ethics is part of natural theology that tells us how God wants us to live here and now. To live according to natural law is to live by Gods intentions ethical direction can be found in what is common to all humans. If we follow these common dispositions then we act as God intended= we act in a good way. If we investigate carefully and reason correctly our search will lead to God. This is the basic of natural Theology. Natural law becomes more specific when we move towards secondary principles such as the 10 commandments (secondary law). They are always valid but we should not act upon them. Natural law is split up into 4 channels which are: Eternal Law- Is the mind of God which humans cannot know. Contained within it are the laws which govern the creation of the universe and cannot control the life cycle of everything in existence. Although humans cannot fully know the Eternal law, they can occasionally glimpse reflection of it, for example, through scientific knowledge of aspects of natural law. This shows that God is the starting point, his idea, his rules. He reveals himself threw divine law. God is also thinking about creating a world. We......

Ecosistema Natural

...INTRODUCCIÒN: El tema que voy a presentar el ensayo es sobre los ecosistemas y su importancia en el planeta tierra. Elegí este tema ya que me pareció interesante, ya que vivimos en ecosistemas y muchas veces no vemos el daño que le hacemos y seria interesante reconocer su gran importancia en nosotros, los seres vivos. DESARROLLO: Primeramente empezare con la definición, ecosistema es un sistema natural que está formado por un conjunto de organismos vivos y el medio físico en donde se relacionan. Existen diferentes tipos de ecosistemas como son: la sabana, la tundra, la taiga, de mar, desierto, bosque, la selva, entre otros. Y en cada tipo de ecosistema se encuentran miles de animales y diferentes tipos de plantas, una gran diversidad en nuestro medio ambiente. Es por eso la gran importancia de estos ecosistemas. En la actualidad, la contaminación y el calentamiento global se a vuelto una moda, en las calles vemos cada vez mas basura, grandes capas de smog en nuestra atmósfera, y así como el desperdicio de agua, gracias a estos descuidos del hombre se han presentado muchas muertes de animales en nuestros bosques y nuestros mares, el agua nos esta acabando, pero la gran incógnita de todos, ¿Cómo le vamos a hacer?. Sinceramente, nosotros empezamos a actuar ya cuando tocamos fondo, ya cuando vemos que no hay salido empezamos a cambiar, entonces en mi opinión es eso que nos hace falta, que de verdad pase una catástrofe en nuestros ecosistemas, para que nos demos cuenta...

Natural Foods

...Natural Foods People love food and in many ways it defines them who they are. For Americans with rising health and obesity problems this could not be further from the truth. People need to be cautious of packaged foods that claim to be "natural," as they can deceive them into thinking the product is good for them. Packaged foods often contain high amounts of sodium, sugar, and fat even if they contain natural ingredients. Eating foods in their true organic natural form is beneficial to a person’s overall heath. One benefit of eating organic natural foods is decreasing the amount of harmful artificial ingredients. Artificial ingredients are cheap man-made ingredients such as food coloring, preservatives, and artificial sweeteners that are used to enhance the product to entice a person to buy it. The problem with many of them is that they have been linked to many types of medical issues. Food colorings, according to a study done at Purdue University, have been linked to cause increased hyperactivity in children (Stevens 268). In another case, the consumption of high-fructose corn syrup beverages, like sodas and fruit juices, has increased since the 1970s in correlation with the rising obesity rate in children (Morgan 250). Another benefit of eating organic foods is the ability to avoid Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). In 2001, about 68 percent of soybeans and 26 percent of corn in the United States where genetically modified (Lilliston 27). One problem with......

Natural Disasters

...Natural Disasters & the Decisions That Follow Case Study: Natural Disasters & the Decisions that follow Step 01: Problem Definition Natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes. An example includes hurricanes, floods, severe weather, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and other geologic processes. Step 02: Justification of the problem: A natural disaster can cause loss of life or property damage, and typically leaves some economic damage. And when we face a disaster during business running, we have to find a way to solve the dilemma between the organizations and the customers. Step 03: List of Alternatives: A- Aware people about the risk reducing measures. B- Planning and prevention. C- Organizations business ethics. Step 04: Evaluating Alternatives: A- With good data, the public understands the need for preparation and risk reducing measures. Governments, the private sector and the media build awareness of risks and risk-mitigation principles at national, regional, and community levels. Education in the community is required to ensure that awareness building continues in adult life. B- The coordination between the government and the private sector can presents accurate data to predict the risk before disaster strikes, which require to study all the information and the details provided to analyze the cost and benefits of natural disaster response. It is important to consider the relative cost effectiveness......
