Review the effect of pH on enzyme function. Students should understand that enzymes function best at specific pH levels (which vary depending on the enzyme). Non-optimal pH levels can affect the shape of the enzyme, thereby decreasing its effectiveness as a catalyst. Extreme pH levels can permanently denature the enzyme protein, whereas less extreme pH conditions may only temporarily alter . Lactase is effective at pH 2 – 7 (including dH2O) and therefore breaks down the lactose sugar in milk into glucose and galactose.
Without the amylase required to digest the starch, they simply can’t be broken down. Typically, when amylase is added to a solution of starch, the concentration of starch should continually go down because the amylase is in effect. However, when Weaver added the Carb cutter solution to the starch and amylase, the carb concentration stayed relatively constant. In all of the Carb Cutter testing the carbohydrate concentration stayed relatively constant, meaning the formula works for prohibiting the digestion of starch via amylase. There are a couple downfalls to the pill’s effectiveness, however.
“Diabetes can be tackled in different ways- by insulin and diet” (Rudy, 1999, page 19) Diet, when someone had diabetes it is best for their health to cut right down on the unhealthy foods, and stick to the health foods, this is due to the effectiveness of the medication you are on. If you eat junk food and do not eat healthy then your medication will not be as effective as it could be. Sticking to regular mealtimes is also another thing that could help you feel better as it will keep your “blood glucose levels under control”. (Rudy, 1999, page 20) There are 2 types of carbohydrates, 1 that is good for controlling diabetes and 1 that is really bad, these are starchy and sugary. Sugary- this is the 1 that people with diabetes should stay clear of, this is due to the “glucose getting into your bloodstream fast, this could cause a sudden rise in blood glucose levels”.
Explain this statement: “This failure of prevention occurs in the face of a decrease in smoking and reduction b. In dietary fat.” That if you want the diets to work and have everything turn out right you need to start with decrease smoking and not eat as many fats in your diet 8. Dean Ornish recommends a very low-fat diet along with what other components? Exercise, lose weight, Meditate 9. How does this make the Ornish diet scientifically invalid There is no evidence that shows that olive oil is bad for you, and the only cholesterol olive oil will raise your good HDL cholesterol.
Use a new glucose strip and record Data: Conclusion: According to my data, pH levels do, in fact, affect the results of Lactex. I say this because in my experiment, pre-enzyme, my solutions were all negative except for the soda. I used the test strips to determine if they were negative or positive solutions. After I put in the enzyme, Lactex, my results changed. Vinegar, Antacid, and Soap all became positive solutions after I put in the enzyme.
Tell your doctor about all medications you use. This includes prescription, over the counter, vitamin and herbal products. 9. ALLI, Xenical; orlistat; Alli blocks some of the fat that you eat, keeping it from being absorbed by your body and helps you lose weight. Alli is used together with a reduced-calorie diet and weight maintenance to treat obesity in people with certain risk factors such as dabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
6/28/2012 The 1st lab procedure performed was the gram stain. Previously, before starting the gram stain I prepared a bacterial smear on a glass slide and used the heat fixing method which was done to help the bacteria cells adhere to the glass, kill them, and also helps make the cells easier to stain by coagulating the cells proteins. The gram stain test helped me identify rather my bacterium would be a negative or positive and determined the microscopic morphology (shape, and arrangement) of my bacterium as well. The test
Row 1 shows that before the experiment students predicted a relatively low, (140v), level of shock would be administered and that none, (0%), would comply to the end. The next row shows results from the original study. Average voltage administered was 368 whilst 65% of participants obeyed fully. Having described the phenomenon Milgram sought to establish causal influences by altering a variable component in further studies. Row 3 shows results where the participant was paired with a defiant 'co-teacher' with both measures reduced.
Another way to prolong your life is to restrict your diet and eat less, but then that would open you up to possible getting more diseases. Richard Miller Ph.D professor of pathology and generic medicine. He concludes that eating healthier and less can benefit you mentally and physically, but leaves you open for more diseases. He states its impractical to expect someone to decrease his caloric intake by 40%. Instead of you would set your intake lower daily then you could lose weight.
Reduce calories by filling yourself up with protein, vegetables, whole grains, and replacing bad habit snacks with good ones. For example, if you have a sugar craving, replace your calorie laden latte with a Muscle Milk lite, one of my favorites, because it has zero sugar and a ton of protein that will satiate while also torching my sugar craving! Another great trick is a sprinkle of cinnamon in your morning coffee or oatmeal- the spice has been shown to help stabilize blood sugar. It also slows the rate at which food exits the stomach, which helps you feel fuller longer. Vitamin C When you’re under extreme stress, you secrete more cortisol hormone.
