The lab report consists of the following sections: introduction, materials/methods, data, results, conclusion, and references.  The lab report must be double-spaced, Times New Roman, and 12-point font.  Below are the various sections.  Please structure your lab report so that it includes these sections.

 

Introduction

·         The introduction mainly consists of three components, background information, objective/purpose of the lab, and hypothesis.  Each component should have a paragraph dedicated to it (total of three paragraphs).

o    Background information: Research needs to be conducted on what the topic is about.

o    Objective/purpose of the lab: You need to clearly define why you are conducting the lab.

o    Hypothesis statement: You need to create a hypothesis statement and reasoning for it prior to the start of the lab.

Materials/Methods

·         The materials section lists everything that is needed to complete the experiment.  Please include all material that you used.

·         The methods section describes all the steps that were taken during the experiment.  This section should be written in your own words and not take directly from the lab.

Data

·         The data section relays all the data of the lab.  They can be presented in charts, tables, etc.  The data must be easily read.  If there are numerical values, please ensure the correct unit of measurement is displayed as well.

Results

·         The results section explains what the data means.

Conclusion

·         The conclusion helps sum up and gives meaning to the results.  The hypothesis should be restated and confirmed if it was correct or incorrect.  Any explanation of why should be given.  This explanation of “why” is the driving force of the conclusion.  Reference back to your Introduction to help explain data and results.  The conclusion should be at least two paragraphs in length.

References

·         A reference section is needed.  There should be a total of two references.  If you have a reference in this section, it should also have an in-text citation in the lab as well.  References can be obtained by using LIRN.  Please visit the Academic Resource Center (ARC) for helpful APA format, LIRN, and citation information.

 

Task/Lab : You will write a lab report for the following task.

 

Effectively read and compare two food labels.

 

Explain the purpose or objectives of reading and comparing food labels.  State your hypothesis.  For example, which juice product do you think will be the most nutrient dense and which will contain the most empty calories?  Or, how many ingredients do you think are in common fruit beverages?  Also hypothesize about the food labels on milk products.  For example, which milk product provides the most nutrients and the least amount of fat?

 

Follow these steps:

 

1.      Part 1 (all three products should be of the same flavor)

·         1 container juice

·         1 container juice drink

·         1 container powdered juice drink

2.      Part 2

·         1 container whole milk

·         1 container nonfat milk

·         1 container milk substitute (Almond, Soy, Coconut, etc.)

·         Additional resource: FDA Nutrition Facts Label Programs & Materials (http://www.fda.gov/food/ingredientspackaginglabeling/labelingnutrition/ucm20026097.htm)

3.      Describe all the steps that you plan to take during the experiment.

4.      For Part I:

·         Either purchase the items needed, locate them in your personal pantry, or visit a grocery store and make notes on the food labels of each.

·         Locate the nutrition labels on the juice, juice drink, and powdered juice drink.

·         Create a table to note the following: serving size, calories, calories from fat, total fat, sodium, total carbohydrate, dietary fiber, sugars, and protein. 

·         Write out a list of all of the ingredients in each product.

·         Make note of any vitamins or minerals found in each product.

·         Search each product and find if any health claims are made.  Use Table 9-1 on pages 200-201 in your textbook for information on health claims.  Make note of health claims on product, if any.

·         Make note of the price of each item. Take the price of each and divide it by the number of servings in the container to find the price per serving.

5.      For Part 2:

·         Either purchase the items needed, locate them in your personal pantry, or visit a grocery store and make notes on the food labels of each.

·         Locate the nutrition labels on the whole milk, nonfat milk, and milk substitute.

·         Create a table to note the following: serving size, calories, calories from fat, total fat, sodium, total carbohydrate, dietary fiber, sugars, and protein.

·         Make note of any vitamins or minerals found in each product.

·         Search each product and find if any health claims are made.  Use Table 9-1 on pages 200-201 in your textbook for information on health claims.  Make note of health claims on product, if any.

·         Make note of the price of each item.  Take the price of each and divide it by the number of servings in the container to find the price per serving.

6.      Record the results of this experiment.  Note which juice product has fewer calories per serving, which has the least amount of sugar, and which has the fewest ingredients.  Note which milk product has fewer calories per serving, which has the least amount of sugar, and which has the fewest ingredients.  Also determine any additional healthy benefits if any of the products are fortified.

7.      In your conclusion, explain your comparison of the products in each part and provide an explanation of why you think there may be a price difference, if any exists.  Also summarize your thoughts on the ingredient lists of the products and whether these lists surprised you.

·         Based solely on the nutritional data, which juice product and which milk product would you choose to consume and why?  Speculate about the variety of similar products available on the market and whether this variety is helpful or harmful to the public.

Human Body

The human body is truly remarkable and is designed to function effectively. Organs are important structures composed of different tissues that facilitate specific functions within the body. Organs function as part of an integrated group of structures known as organ systems. These organ systems form the organizational units that are responsible for crucial processes necessary for sustaining life.

Examples of organ systems include but are not limited to the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the musculoskeletal system, the nervous system, the excretory system, the endocrine system and the respiratory system. Even organ systems do not function alone. These systems work together, interacting with other organs in a functional network that keeps the body in balance. (Look up the term homeostasis in your text.) When homeostasis or the normal functioning of organ systems is disrupted, disease may develop causing injury to the body, or even death. In this assignment, you will explore organ systems, as well as associated diseases or malfunctions.

Assignment details:

Take a look at the following case studies that detail an outcome associated with a disease/organ malfunction. Select one study to investigate further for your assignment.

Critically evaluate the information provided and correlate it with the organ systems that are affected in the scenario. Use the information that you have gathered to answer the assignment questions that follow the case study. For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, the AIU Library, Web resources, and course materials.

Case Study 1:

Atherosclerosis is narrowing of arteries caused by the accumulation of fatty deposits on the arterial walls.

On June 22, 2002 the St. Louis Cardinals were preparing for their upcoming baseball game against the Chicago cubs. Concern arose when their prized pitcher, 33-year old Darryl Kile did not show up for practice. Soon after, he was found still in his hotel room where he had suddenly died in his sleep (New York Times, 2002). It was discovered that the cause of death was related to three of his coronary arteries being 80-90% blocked as a result of atherosclerosis (New York Times, 2002), which ultimately caused him to undergo a heart attack.

Answer the following assignment questions: Why would atherosclerosis result in a heart attack? Provide a brief explanation based on how the heart functions.How are arteries different from veins and capillaries? Describe the functions of both arteries and veins.Vertebrates and some invertebrates have a closed circulatory system. Explain the advantage of having a closed circulatory system over an open circulatory system?Briefly explain how the lymphatic system is associated with the circulatory system?Describe one disease that affects the lymphatic vessels similarly to the way that atherosclerosis affects the arteries?

Case Study 2:

Cigarette smoking remains the leading preventable cause of death in the United States, causing an estimated 438,000 deaths – or about 1 out of every 5 – each year (National Cancer Institute, 2008).

Mr. Amos is now 57 years old and has been smoking for the past 30 years of his life. A recent doctor’s visit reveals that Mr. Amos has stage 3 lung cancer, characterized by his symptoms of nagging chest pain, fatigue, coughing up blood, substantial weight loss, and increased carbon dioxide levels in his blood. The doctor informed Mr. Amos that had he quit his smoking habit several years ago, he would have reduced his risk for developing lung cancer later in life. Mr. Amos immediately begins treatment for the lung cancer that has metastasized to his lymph nodes.

Answer the following assignment questions: What main components in cigarettes affect the respiratory system? Explain their effects on specific organs, cells and/or processes in the respiratory system.There are alternate mechanisms of transporting carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen (O2 ) in the blood. Explain how smoking might lead to increased levels of carbon dioxide in the blood.Can smoking affect other organ systems of the body? Give specific examples and briefly explain your answer.How can you correlate cellular respiration with the respiratory system?Does smokeless tobacco present a reduced risk for lung cancer and other smoking associated diseases? Provide evidence for your answer.

Case Study 3:

Gigantism is abnormally large growth during childhood caused by excess growth hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland.

Robert Wadlow, born on February 22, 1918, weighed a normal eight pounds, six ounces. However, by the time Robert reached the age of six months old, he weighed 30 pounds (Hamilton, 1993). Within only a year, his weight rose to 62 pounds, more than double the normal weight of a baby at 18 months. Aside from his weight, Robert continued to grow at an astounding rate, reaching six feet, two inches and 195 pounds by the time he was eight years old. Robert’s unique size was attributed to an over active pituitary gland, which produced much higher than normal levels of growth hormone. At the time of his death in July 1940 at the age of 22, Robert had reached a height of 8 feet 11.1 inches and weighed 485 pounds (Hamilton, 1993).

Answer the following assignment questions: How does growth hormone regulate various body functions in adults, and what could cause the excess secretion of growth hormone?Discuss the relationship between growth hormone and insulin, and are there complications associated with their interaction?Why is gigantism usually more difficult to treat than dwarfism?Give examples of two other hormones secreted by the pituitary, and briefly describe how they specifically affect other organ systems of the body?Some athletes have resorted to the illegal use of anabolic steroids to increase strength and muscle size. How are anabolic steroids different from growth hormone? Briefly explain your answer.
