1. Many people have suggested that focusing on one macronutrient at the expense of others would be a superior diet. Thus, we have high-protein diets, high-carbohydrate diets, and high-fat diets. On the flip side, we also have low-fat diets, low-carb diets, and so on. In addition to these, there are other versions such as a gluten-free diet (which is necessary for those truly allergic to wheat), a vegan diet, a raw food diet, and even a blood type diet that is based on particular blood types. Reflect on your eating habits. Which type of diet do you prefer? Why do you prefer this type of diet to other diet options? Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
2. What can you do to lower your risk for getting cancer? Look at table 6.1 on page 110 of the textbook for ideas, but you do not need to limit your discussion to the four behaviors listed in the table. You can also access websites, such as cancer.gov and cancer.org, to determine what other risk factors might be applicable to your situation, especially if you are female and breast cancer is a concern or if you are male and prostate cancer is a concern.Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
3. Consider your own genetics (traits received from your parents) and the environment in which you grew up. Which do you think has had a greater impact on your life, “nature” (the genes you have) or “nurture” (the environment in which you grew up)? Contemplate your career choice. Might either factor have influenced your choice? Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
4. Whether you “believe” in evolution or not, why is it important to be knowledgeable about Darwin’s theory? How might genetics and evolution apply to our modern society when we consider the differences between people? Should we stratify people based on intelligence or other specific qualities? Have you observed traits in your parents that you do not like and see them in yourself? (You do not have to be specific about personal issues but can write about issues in a general sense.) Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
