Should We Use Nutrasweet And Other Artificial Sweeteners - 1,998 words
Should We Use NutraSweet & Other Artificial Sweeteners? Over the years there has been a huge "food fight" concerning the safety of NutraSweet and other artificial sweeteners. In the eyes of the consumer the safety of such products is questionable. In my opinion it isn't safe to use products like this. Though many scientists and other health professionals claim it to be safe I still don't trust these products. In 1981 the little blue packets of NutraSweet appeared on our restaurant tables, and by 1983 NutraSweet was being widely used in diet sodas. But as soon as this wonder of nutritional science appeared on the scene, there was great controversy over its safety. A component in NutraSweet, a ...

You Are What You Eat - 1,310 words
People are, as the expression goes, what they eat. After all, the muscles in a person's body, and the blood flowing through their veins, are all supplied by the food that he or she consumes. Understandably, these foods would also have an effect on the way the brain functions. The foods we eat have measurable effects on the body's performance, they may prove to have an even more critical influence on how the brain handles its tasks. The idea that the right foods, or the natural neurochemicals they contain, can enhance mental capabilities such as by defusing stress.

How Folate Can Help Prevent Birth Defects If you plan to have children some day, here's important information for the future mother-to-be: Think folate now. Folate is a B vitamin found in a variety of foods and added to many vitamin and mineral supplements as folic acid, a synthetic form of folate. Folate is needed both before and in the first weeks of pregnancy and can help reduce the risk of certain serious and common birth defects called neural tube defects, which affect the brain and spinal cord. The tricky part is that neural tube defects can occur in an embryo before a woman realizes she's pregnant. That's why it's important for all women of childbearing age (15 to 45) to include folat ...

Zone Dieting - 336 words
Protein, protein, protein-thats all I hear at my 24 hours gym. I thought that people in my gym talked about it because protein is what you need to take in order to build muscles. However, people used those proteins to lose weight. I was astonished about this ZONE dieting. This protein can help build peoples muscles or lose their weights. Basically, this ZONE dieting is to take high protein and low carbohydrate instead of not eats at all. Many people choose something called 40-30-30. It means taking 40 % carbohydrate, 30 % protein, and 30 % fat. This plan should help people lose one to one and a half lbs of fat a week, without getting hungry. Successful way to this diet is that we need to sta ...

The Role Of Food In Times Of War - 1,288 words
Food means different things to people in different countries of the world; pasta is common in Italy, hamburgers are a favorite in the US and tacos are a typical dish in Mexico.

Erich Maria Remarque, author of All Quiet in the Western Front, and Elie Wiesel, author of Night, both use food in their novels to convey this idea. Many of their thoughts and "meanings" concerning food paralleled one another. Food, one of the quintessential elements of ...

Perseverance: A Lesson In Sports, A Lesson In Life - 776 words
It was the seventh week of my junior year in high school. My competitive spirit was teeming with excitement as I woke up at 4:30 in the morning to go sleep on a bus for the next two hours. It was not until the bus ride was almost completed that my conscious mind fully realized what it was about to force my body do. The bodys cries for help took the form of nervous pains in my stomach, yet I continued to ignore them by ingesting more water and salted pretzels.

My Dream Meal - 440 words

A mid-sized deck protrudes out the back of the restaurant. Nine tables are randomly placed on this patio, each with its own single white candle in the center. It is night, and bright wicker torches line the veranda, consecutively spaced about six feet apart.

Tall crystal wineglasses are placed at each setting, each filled with ice cold pia coladas. In the ba ...
