They are some of the most destructive and lethal viruses that human kind has ever seen. They seem to affect most of the body and it’s organs with some rather gruesome symptoms. Although most die ending their suffering, some survive to relay the story of their pain. The Marburg virus described in The Hot Zone , by Richard Preston, exemplifies these ne

Comparative Anatomy Most people are have encountered the phrase “You are what you eat!”? This statement may be more accurate then one might initially think. Mammals are most often grouped as carnivore, herbivore and sometimes omnivore. These classifications are based on the diet and manner in which an individual obtains food. Carnivores generally eat other carnivores, while herbivores commonly eat herbs, also termed as plants or vegetation. Hence, in a way, you are what you eat. Although carnivo

In today’s society, parasites are seen as useless creatures that live their lives at the expense of another’s, but Carl Zimmer portrays them in a much different light. He brilliantly displays that parasites have received a poor reputation but are in fact a major contributor to life on earth today. The beginning of the book describes how early scientists discovered parasites. Leeuwenhoek, Steenstrup and Koch,

Aplastic anemia is a disease of the bone marrow the organ that produce
Aplastic anemia is a disease of the bone marrow— the organ that produces the body's blood cells. Approximately two thousand people in the U.S. are diagnosed each year with aplastic anemia. The symptoms of aplastic anemia are fatigue, bruising, infections, and weakness. Although these symptoms are much like those associated with leukemia, aplastic anemia is not a form of cancer. In patients with aplastic anemia the bone marrow stops producing, or produces too few red blood cells, white blood cell

DIET Because the human diet is typically diverse, human beings are classified as omnivores rather than as herbivores (plant eaters) or carnivores (meat eaters). Certain groups of people do derive most of their food from animal sources--for example, the traditional Inuits of the Arctic region and the Masai of Africa--while other people practice vegetarianism. By far the majority of humankind, however, eats a wide range of foods of both animal and vegetable origin. Prehistoric humans were hunters

The first nutritional fact most Americans learn is that iron builds strong and healthy bodies.1 The beef lobby, cereal manufacturers, bread makers, and drug companies have bombarded the public with iron being the cure-all for fatigue and iron-poor blood. People have been mislead by drug companies pushing iron supplements and by old-fashioned ideas about iron, the magical nutrient of strength. Even the cartoons of the past pushed iron as the secret ingredient in Popeye's spinach. Television

Evolution has by necessity, allowed the survival of the fittest. Primitive man had to forage and hunt for food from nature. Therefore, humans developed keen taste receptors for fat-rich, caloric foods. Because the availability of food was uncertain, those who had stores of fat in their bodies, would be more able to survive the harsh conditions of primitive life. In modern times, we still have the same though weakened taste receptors of primitive man. Thus, we still have the affinity for sugar b

The word Cannibal came from when Christopher Colombus first met the Carib Indians from the Caribbean whom he called caribales.

One type of cannibalism has to do with tribal rituals and

Mummies and Embalming by Marco B. January 17, 1997 In Ancient Egypt when a person died his body was embalmed and made into a mummy.

Poor Egyptians did not have fancy burials and mummification like the noblemen and kings and

Muscle is the tough, elastic tissue that makes body parts move. All animals except the simplest kinds have some type of muscle. People use muscles to make various movements, such as walking, jumping, or throwing. Muscles also help in performing activities necessary for growth and for maintaining a strong, healthy body. For example, people use muscles in the jaw to chew food. Other muscles help move food through the stomach and intestines, and aid in digestion. Muscles in the heart and blood ves

The battle of Hastings was responsible for the rise of England to its status of power and strength. Prior to the battle, England was a relatively meager country. The battle transformed the country into a great power. “The battle of Hastings is recognized as the first step by which England reached her present strength.” (Wilberforce, 1898, p. 226) The battle occurred October 14, 1066, in a village in England that is now known as Battle.

On the night of August 4, 1962, Marilyn Monroe died of a fatal dose of barbiturates. At first, the drugs were thought to be taken orally as in case of suicide, but the longer the case went on, the more they found out. Mariln Monroe did not commit suicide. There is not enough evidence for suicide. For instance, the evidence of empty pill bottles in Monroe’s bedroom only helps the prosecution. It was initially assumed that Marilyn swallowed them. It would have been impossible for Marilyn to swall

What examples can you find from this chapter?

They were out there risking their lives for someone who wasn't paying them and gave them moldy scraps for food. We don't even notice

Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. Description Cystic Fibrosis causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky mucus, due to the faulty transport of sodium and chloride (salt) within cells lining organs such as the lungs and pancreas, to their outer surfaces. The thick CF mucus also obstructs the pancreas, preventing enzymes from reaching the intestines to help break down and digest food. Symptoms/

These include the lungs and respiratory tract, the digestive tract (especially the pancreas and intestines) and the sweat glands. The lungs will normally have a thick mucus line them in cases of cystic fibrosis which requires physiotherapy to dislodge the mucus and create sputum. The digestive enzymes that would c
