Introduction The following essay attempts to discuss and analyse a health promotion activity on binge drinking, carried out on 5th April 2011. The essay begins with an assessment of the health needs by discussing related literature and identifying epidemiological and demographic statistics The chosen approach of the health promotion activity is then discussed, with the advantages and disadvantages considered. The evaluation section will use an evaluation tool to analyse the resources used, the results and the role of the health promoter, with a brief consideration of where such an activity may be carried out. Finally, the conclusion will summarise the key issues raised within the body of the essay. Assessment of Health Need Government guidelines state that men should drink no more than three to four units and women no more than two to three units of alcohol daily.
The third viewpoint is from the United Kingdom found that the adverse effects of food dyes on symptoms of ADHD were moderated by histamine degradation gene (HNMT). And food additives can trigger histamine release and the HNMT can impair the histamine clearance (389). The author’s purpose in writing of this article was to address the role that food additives and artificial dye in ADHD. There was research done by Dr. Benjamin Feingold in the 1970’s that did not provide enough convincing evidence.

Fruits and vegetables contain folate, which helps give you more energy and repairs cell damage caused by stress. Nuts and seeds.

* Patients who have been well controlled on metformin who develop illness or laboratory abnormalities should be assessed for ketoacidosis or lactic acidosis. Assess serum electrolytes, ketones, glucose, and, if indicated, blood pH, lactate, pyruvate, and metformin levels. If either form of acidosis is present, discontinue metformin immediately and treat acidosis.Lab Test Considerations: Monitor serum glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin periodically during therapy to evaluate effectiveness of therapy. May cause false-positive results for urine ketones.Assess renal function before initiating and at least annually during therapy. Discontinue metformin if renal impairment occurs.

It is averaged that 200ml (two cups of coffee) is the average intake of caffeine in America per person. However Athletes strive for ways to perform and enhance there performance through any way possible, this includes through the uses of caffeine because it acts as a stimulant against the central nervous system causing heart rate to increase which may allow the consumer to feel extra amounts of energy. This perhaps would allow athletes to increase there performance because of more blood with oxygen being transported around the body. However after performance and exercise, athletes take a considerate amount of time to recover from exercise and allow the body to get back to resting heart rate, Caffeine may still be in effect however after exercise causing the heart to still produce a higher heart rate.
Some diseases that are caused from fats are heart disease, overweight, diabetes, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, and sleep apnea. Lipids fats play a large role in the functioning of the body such as it increases the brain functions in a positive way. Lipids fats also help joint function and energy production within the body. Fiber absorb cholesterol and slow glucose absorption it helps
Hydrogenation also extends the shelf life of these fatty acids, and preserves them through better stabilization. “When the hydrogen’s are on opposite sides of the double bond, called the trans configuration, the fatty acid is a trans fatty acid.” (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2006) Trans fatty acids can increase your risk of heart disease. Saturated and trans fats are considered the worst for your health due to the proven increased risk of cardiovascular disease, including stroke, and high cholesterol levels according to the American Heart Association (2010). Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are better for your diet, and contain some of the best fatty acids, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. These lipids can actually help reduce your risk of heart disease, and cholesterol related health
Maintenance dose in exercise performance (for adults ages 19 and older): Take 2g daily. Your body may absorb creatine better when you take it with carbohydrate foods, such as fruits, fruit juices, and starches. The doses listed have been tested frequently in athletes. But it’s not known whether these dosages have the same effects in non-athletes (UMMC). Overall, although creatine may have negative effects, it can boost your muscle strength if you use the right amount at the right time.
