The book covers things like how we are affected by having to gather or having our food already prepped for us. We will also look at why we eat the way we do. Last but not least we will cover ethics of eating the animals we put on the table. The way the author leads you into the story is a bit long winded. You read about how they first thought about getting foods, well mostly mushrooms.
Leaf Eating Primates All primates like other animals need nutrients to survive, grow and reproduce. Food is considered vital for life, because it provides the energy needed for all these activities. However this food needs to be digested first before this chemical energy is released, the digestion process usually varies depending on the type of diet each primate has. For each diet type different primate species will display a diverse anatomically and physical adaptations that assist in their ability to digest that diet. In leaf eating primate they display adaptations in stomach, colon, as well as their capacity to consume food with high in structure carbohydrates.
They made more babies, and so people who had less melanin were more successful , reproductively, in cooler climates where UV radiation was less and clothing was no longer optional. Even the effect of clothing was accounted for by natural selection. As adapted, they just needed much less UV radiation to produce an adequate supply of Vitamin
In a humans mouth there are teeth and within a human they are four types of teeth which are used for different functions such as the incisor teeth are for biting and are found are the front of the mouth. The other types of teeth are the canines which are used for tearing food and premolars and molars which are used for grinding, pounding and crushing the food. The food that is taken in through the mouth is moistened by saliva which is a sticky fluid that binds the food particles together to create a soft mass. Saliva contains enzymes which are called amylase which digest the starch molecules into smaller molecules. When chewing food the tongue is used to move food about and manipulates it into a mass called bolus.
Copper vs. Fiber The advantage of having fiber is obviously going to overcome the advantage of having copper. However, there are certain areas where copper will be better fit than fiber cables. Hard to believe but let’s just point out some advantages and disadvantages of each to see which will best fit where you want to put it. Fiber cabling is growing very fast due to how much more efficient it is than copper cabling.
The bones that were found that belonged to Lucy were what led Don Johanson and his fellow researchers to believe that she may have walked bipedally. The hip was humanlike and the knee also signified that this primate may have walked on two legs. According to their analysis of the bones anatomically it was possible that this animal could stand upright. 4. Lucy also has traits that were very ape like for example she had a receding forehead, v shaped jaw, and a rather prominent face.
It's also fun, and according to NutriStrategy, burns a lot of calories - significantly more than brisk walking.” (Bigelow) You’d be forgiven for wondering but stair climbing can have a significant and positive impact on an individual’s health over time. Unlike walking, which humans have evolved to do while burning minimal amounts of energy, stair climbing is classed as a ‘vigorous’ physical activity and burns more calories per minute than jogging. The benefits of regular physical activity are well documented and include: • Improved cardiovascular fitness • A stronger musculoskeletal system •
Ecology American Museum of Natural History , “Scavenger Hunt” Tianqi Fan 2. Hall of Human Origins “A new type of Human” This display shows the homo ergster, a hominid that lived in the dinorama scene. The ecological niche for the homo ergster is shown in this display where they are positioned in their living environment along with their food source which is a half eaten grazer. These hominids lived in eastern Africa and their constant diet was meat. In order to hunt these animals for food they would use sharp stone tools, some of which the markings are found on animal carcasses.
Along with that, some aspects of the social organization were the same. Artifacts have proven that in both eras a division of labor occurred, mainly involving women. As the two Stone Age Societies had similarities, they also had various differences, a main one being technology. The Paleolithic’s mostly made their simple tools out of stone while the Neolithic society produced more advanced tools out of copper and created more inventions. Diet and nutrition was also a difference in between the two societies, Paleolithic’s ate healthier and more varied foods such as nuts and berries and on the other hand Neolithic’s ate more high carbed foods.
All of these ideas in both stories are equally important and unique. There are many comparisons and contrasts to each text and it was interesting to divulge in Fast Food Nations facts. In Michael Pollan’s Botany of Desire it was interesting as well to see his opinion on each of these topics, which were how foods are produced in agriculture and fast food chains, such as McDonalds, the need for uniformity in the fast food chains and their potatoes, and how farmers are losing their
