A Fatty Making a Change Baxter was a fatty who lived in the town of Dogville. His passion was eating food all of the time. Baxter enjoyed eating everything that was rich, fatty, and delicious. However, the new mayor enacted a city ordinance that prohibited fatty foods to be served or consumed in the city. Most of the city’s residents showed little to no 1ennui over the situation, and were doing nothing and seemed to not care. Baxter on the other hand, was preparing a 2Diatribe that he would present on the steps of city hall to show his anger over the new laws. Baxter is hoping his speech will 3ameliorate the problem, and make it so he can eat his favorite foods again. Baxter also is hoping that his speech is 4efficacious in getting the mayor to reverse the laws. Baxter had completed writing his speech, and he headed to his city hall. He started to speak in a 5ebullient manner to get an excited crowd to gather. Baxter did such a good job sounding interesting and excited he got the crowd that gathered excited too.

The crowd all decided to hold a peaceful protest and would stand outside the mayor’s office until he changed the law. When the mayor looked out upon the crowd, he decided to go try
thermodynamics: We never lose or gain energy. Just change form and location.
* 3 stages of extracting energy from food:
* Digestion, absorption, and transportation.
* Breaks food down (Simple sugars, fatty acids, monoglycerides)
* System transports these nutrients to tissue throughout the body
* Breakdown of many small molecules to a few key metabolites.
* Inside cells, chemical reactions convert simple sugars, fatty acids, glycerol, and amino acids into a few…
reality, which with effort can be diverted away through time management and other techniques. When stress takes a bigger toll on your body and physical well being, it can actually be a risk factor for heart disease. Reducing stress can be as easy as making a schedule and having a time frame for all your daily activities. Some things may be out of your control, but having and using the right tools to cope can help reduce your risk factor for this chronic disease. Having two jobs and two classes can be…
(has 3 hydroxyls)
- Each FATTY ACID has a terminal carboxylic acid, and between 16 and 18 carbons
- Condensation reaction attaches 3 fatty acids to glycerol making ester linkages
- Saturated Fats
- come from animals
- Used for long-term energy storage, insulation, protection and helps dissolve fat soluble vitamins
- NO double bonds between carbon atoms in the fatty acids
- Solid at room temperature due to the straight chains à
fatty acids are closer together…

1. What are the levels of organization in the human body? What is the sequence of order?
Chemical: atoms and molecules – Cellular: Molecules combine to form cells, the basic structural and functional units of an organism that are composed of chemicals. – Tissue: are groups of cells and the materials surrounding them that work together to perform a particular function – Organ: are structures that are composed of two or more different types of tissues –…
The endocrine system notes
Endocrine or exocrine
Endocrine gland = secreted hormones directly into blood- no duct
Exocrine gland = secretes molecules into duct, exocrine cells are called acinar cells – found in clusters around pancreatic duct which goes to the duodenum.
Other examples of exocrine glands: salivary glands, lacrimal glands and mammary glands.
Functions of adrenal glands
Found above kidneys- there are 2 of them
Each divided into medulla (inner region)…
Law of Conservation Energy: Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, only changed in form. The amount of energy in the universe is constant. Solar Conversion- breaking into mechanical energy and heat and mechanical energy and heat
System change towards a state of disorder without an input of energy. Entropy or disorder of the universe is increasing. Closed systems like the universe is entropy, open systems like the earth use an energy input to reduce entropy and increase order.
dietary habits in the Gulf countries have been changed during the past four decades, includes both quantitative and qualitative change in diet. Now, they are consuming more calories than they did in the past. Also, the composition of diet has changed towards a high-energy-density diet with higher intake of fat specially saturated fat (mostly from animal origin), Trans-fatty acids, added sugar and sodium and lower intake of dietary fiber, fruits and vegetables [Arab Center for Nutrition, 2009]. The…
