In my previous rounds I have gone over what benefits you get from coffee, and what drawbacks there are. In this round I will look at the addiction side of coffee and caffeine and then come to my own conclusion of whether I think that coffee is healthy or unhealthy as I'm sure you will do as well. And if you have followed my research, or decide to go back and read my previous rounds, please let me know your stance on this topic. I've loved all of the ideas and feedback I've gotten throughout...Read More...

Hi all! In my last round of research I covered many advantages and benefits to drinking coffee; in this round I'll be looking into the disadvantages and drawbacks to drinking coffee. Much like I assume you coffee drinkers are hoping, I too wish that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Although I want this research to end in favour of drinking coffee, I am researching with an open mind and unbiased opinion. Early Death: Although my past research said that coffee prolonged your life,...Read More...

Hi guys! So there's a little change to my project plan. I just realized two very important components. The first is that I will on be able to upload 3 rounds before summer vacation, and second that the in depth I was trying to find on each of my four sub topics are combined. So the new plan is that my first round will be about advantages, second round about disadvantages, and the third round about the addiction side of coffee and caffeine. *** For my first round of research I will be looking...Read More...

There is quite a bit of controversy on whether or not coffee is either good or bad for us. Like I said, I am an avid coffee drinker and this is partially vital information. Hopefully through this research I will find out the truth about the health benefits, drawbacks, advantages, and disadvantages. For each round I am planning on going into great depth about each sub-topic because the topics are so simple. But it's the simple information that helps guide us, right? For round one I'll look at...Read More...

Throughout my research I have looked further into what makes a mental illness, how to "diagnose" it and some ways to help cope with the illness. For this round I will be looking not so much at solutions, but common outcomes that people who suffer in silence with these illnesses face. PTSD: There a long term effects for when PTSD goes untreated. Also if treated poorly there is a bigger risk that more mental illnesses will develop. "Chronic pain, autoimmune diseases, depression, anxiety,...Read More...

In this round I will be looking into what coping mechanisms are used in each country to deal with these mental illnesses. For each person however, there are different techniques that work for different people so these "solutions" will be very broad and may not work for one person in particular. PTSD: In Canada there are websites and blogs for people suffering from PTSD so that these people suffering have a safe place to go and connect with others that are sharing these same unsettling...Read More...

In my second round of research I looked into the most common triggers for each illness I have looked into. Common triggers for anxiety include stress, drug use, and medication side effects. (1) Stress can be provoked by school, work, personal relationships, finances, and trauma. People can even be born with anxiety. Anxiety can be triggered by daily activities, a combination of multiple reasons, or pressure from outside forces. (2) Although many people have many different triggers, there are...Read More...

For this round of research I will be looking at the different lifestyles of people in developed vs. developing countries. Because a common trigger between the three illnesses I'm looking into is stress, I will focus on what in these daily schedules could spark any extra stress. First World: We Canadians are very fortunate in the sense that aside from typical struggle (ie. expensive housing, overall cost of living, unemployment, and others) most people wake up, go to either work, or school...Read More...

In this round of research I will be looking into what the definition of PTSD, anxiety, and depression is. By doing this I will gain a better understanding of what can trigger each disorder which will help me in later research. According to the webster's dictionary, "an anxiety disorder marked by chronic excessive anxiety and worry that is difficult to control, causes distress or impairment in daily functioning, and is accompanied by three or more associated symptoms (such as restlessness,...Read More...

In my research I will be focusing on some major reasons and causes for anxiety, depression, and stress between first and third world countries amongst teens. I plan on breaking down my research into several topics so that I can have a better and deeper understand for the information I will be exploring. In my first round of research I will look further into what each disorder is defined as so that I can have a better understanding of what classifies as that certain disease and how these...Read More...
