Respond to the following questions in 75- to 125-words each:
Do you find it easy or difficult to determine the nutritional value of food? What are some methods to help you more easily determine the nutritional values of food?

The first thing I do is look at the nutritional labels on the foods that I cook to be sure that I am cooking a healthy meal for my family. Our favorite addition to a meal is salad and cottage cheese with a fruit. Determining the nutritional content of the food you eat will allow you to better understand what comprises these foods. Knowing what food is made of is one of the first important steps in choosing to eat a healthy diet. There are two different ways that you

EuthanasiaEuthanasia In recent years, Euthanasia has become a very heated debate. It is a Greek word that means easy death but the controversy surrounding it is just the opposite.

kidney diseaseYour kidneys are crucial to your health. They filter out waste products from your blood, remove excess fluids and help balance certain chemicals in your body. When they are damaged by disease or injury, they lose the ability to do their job. Unfortunately, kidneys cannot heal themselves. Any damage is usually irreversible.
