Hello everyone, I found another fun source that I’ll be mainly using for today. It’s a Naturopathy Wiki created for and edited by naturopaths. http://www.ndhealthfacts.org They have peer reviewed pieces, however they were reviewed by naturopathic institutes. Luckily though, they did have a section on Skincare that had some references. One thing I noted is the fact they recommended seeking a naturopathic doctor if you are experiencing negative side effects.Read More...

In my last post I looked into the advertisements specifically on cigarette packages themselves. For this post I'll be looking more into the claims companies made, as well as how their marketing strategies changed as knowledge of the health risks increased. (Above: an early example of Camels advertising.) One saying used in many of Camels ads was "Your "T-Zone" T for teeth, T for throat." Claims such as this lost popularity with the rise of government control over the tobacco industry, as...Read More...

Hello everyone and happy holidays! I'm finally posting a bit of the work I've been working on over the past while to show I'm actually slightly productive. In my research of tobacco ads I chose to start with the past, and slowly end up in the present times. I'm also going to be putting all of my gathered information into categories to make it easier to compare and contrast; although at the moment I've chosen to focus on strictly gathering info. I started my research by looking at cigarette...Read More...

Hello everyone! My project so far has definitely been fun but now it's the end of the cycle so goodbye for now! How had it impacted my thinking? I've learned to search for a lot of sides on an argument. People's stances on milk go from one extreme to another. Scientific studies have results that go from one extreme to another. Still, one should always make sure the research is well rounded and judged fairly. How will this investigation impact the decisions I make? While I'm not someone who...Read More...

Hello everyone! Last week I did a survey on what types of milk people drank. Of course pasteurized milk was in first, almond was in second, and soy was tied with raw as the third option (which is slightly concerning considering raw milk is illegal in North America). So for this round of research I looked into the most questionable of the bunch: raw milk. In 1862 a french scientist introduced the idea of pasteurizing milk, which uses heat to kill harmful germs like E.coli or Salmonella.Read More...
Hello everyone! For my first research round I chose to look into pasteurized cow's milk, and it's pros/cons. Let's start off with some history. Our ability to drink cow's milk is believed to derive from a northern European enzyme mutation. When settlers came to North America the mutation came too. However, drinking milk really got its popularity during and after WW1. Since it was relatively easy to produce, plus a calorie- and protein-rich food source , the government got more and more farms...Read More...
