Transcript of What Happens When Three people Of Different Ages Eat The Sam

On the 16/3/15…

-More than 85%of corn and soy produced come from seeds whose DNA has been altered.
-These crops are revolutionizing the way we are farming.
-By using Genetically Modified Foods, we are able to produce more, buy the produce at cheaper prices, less chemicals are used.
-GM Foods have only been on the market since 1994.
-The results they have stumbled upon were altered metabolisms, inflammation, kidney and liver malfunctions and reduced fertility.

On the 17/3/15

-People worry that allergenic proteins will pop up somewhere unexpected.
“Seed companies run sophisticated tests to prevent allergenic proteins from popping up in unexpected foods. But inserting new genes into a seed’s delicately constructed genomic structure is always a gamble because there is always a possibility on creating brand-new allergies.” Richard Goodman (PHD), professor of food and technology at the university of Nebraska-Lincon and former scientist had to say.


Average Mass for each age group
Danielle is 8 and weighs 48kg
Monique is 11 and weighs 42kg
I am 14 and weigh 49kg

For the average Mass we needed to find out our heights which are:
Danielle: 140cm (55')
Monique: 155cm (62')
Kayla: 165cm (66')

The Average Mass is:
8: 26.9-35.9kg
11: 34.6-50kg
14: 43-64kg
How Does Muscles Build Up Over Time
-There are over 650 Skeleton Muscles that contracts when signals are received from their motor Neurons. Which is triggered by the Sarcoplasmic Reticulum.
- When you work, you damage muscle fibers. When finished your workout, your body gets straight to work on repairing the damage fibers.
- The Cellular process fuses the muscle fibers together to form new muscle protein strands or myofibrils.
- Myofibrils increases thickness and number to create hypertrophy; the growth of muscles.
- Muscles doesn't build up while exercising, but while you rest and/or sleep.
The Effect Different Foods Have On Our Body/Health
First run/walk:

We left at 4:45 and arrived back at home at 5:25. Danielle had managed to walk 4 laps of the circuit we made up after a 5min to the park. Monique had successfully jogged 6-7 laps. While I managed to jogged 7-9 laps. During those laps, I kept overtaking Monique. Around time of 5:19 we headed home because it was starting to rain. That's when I decided to make the walk/run 40mins long.

Third run/walk:
Today was a better day for the practical part of the experiment. Today it was warm with a cool breeze blowing. Though it may have been a bit nippy at the beginning, but it turned out in our favour. Danielle started to become a bit faster and made a new personal record of 6 laps. Monique improved as well catching up to me and not even allowing me to over take her at anytime. Monique's laps (she jogged and walked) added up to 9 laps. While I was just ahead of her at 11 laps.
Second run/walk:
Today was a bit hotter so our results hadn't really improved. We had to stop at thirty minutes to avoid dehydration. Danielle completed 2-3 laps. Monique jogged 2 laps before walking 3 more. While I just managed to jog 3-4 laps before walking an extra 4. So in total;
Danielle did 2-3 laps
Monique did 5 laps
I did 7-8 laps

Week one:
D 48kg
M 40kg
K 49kg

Time and laps...
D 4 laps
M 6-7 laps
K 7-9 laps

Week two:
D stayed the same weight (48kg)
M put on 2kg (42kg)
K put on 0.1kg (49.1)

Time and laps...
4:00- 4:30pm
D 2-3 laps
M 5 laps
K 7-8 laps

Scientific report
What Happens When Three people Of Different Ages Eat The Same Foods And Do The Same Exercise For A Month?
Average Pulse
To figure out our pulses, I had to time one minute and count the pulses within that minute three times. In between each time I left one minute so I can get accurate readings. Next I calculated them into averages. The pulses for each of us includes...
Danielle: 71,80,75
Monique: 72,75,74
Kayla: 82,86,89

The average pulse was
Danielle: 75.33'
Monique: 73.66'
Kayla: 85.66'

For the practical half, Danielle, Monique and I recorded a time in which we left, how long we would be out for (40min), exercise we did, how long we did it for, weight in which we lost due to it, what we have eaten and how much we have improved. By the end of the fist week, Monique had put on 2kg, I have managed to put on 0.1kg while Danielle had managed to maintain her weight.

Fourth run/walk:
Today is the final test and we ended up going over time by 10mins, though, I ended up having a clearer sight of our results. Danielle completed 6 laps. Monique completed with 8 laps. Whilst I completed 11-12 laps.

Danielle completed 18-19 laps
Monique completed 29 laps
While I completed 38-40 laps

Aim: to identify the changes when three people do the same exercise and eat the same for a month.

- dehydration: drink plenty of fluids
- injury: watch out for on coming obstacles (cars, people, cyclists) and your stepping. Watch out for drive ways.

1) calculate you weight or mass. Record food eaten and the time you leave.
2) time the walk or run with the many of laps you have done. Make sure you have done 40min (or close to it). Also do the rout completely.
3) record the time in which you arrived home and calculate the minutes you were out.
4) repeat steps 1-3 four times and record everything you consume everyday for the next month or so.
5) record your weight once every week and compare your results.

Week 3:
D lost 2kg (46kg)
M lost 2kg (40kg)
K lost 1 kg (48.1kg)

D 6 laps
M 9 laps
K 11 laps

Week four:
D stayed the same (46kg)
M gained 3kg (43kg)
K lost 2.5kg (45.6kg)


Thought based on my results...

The food we ate were similar the quantity we ate were different. As in, Danielle eats more than Monique, when I eat double as much as Monique. Though, I may eat more than them, I do the most exercise, hence why I was either putting on less than a kilo and losing less than three kilos at a time. These results were quiet shocking because now I know that Danielle maybe a bit big, she is pretty fit for her size. Monique on the other hand, I didn't even know that her results would be closer to mine. Which in truth, shocked me completely.

Due to the information I have researched and the results I have collected from my scientific experiments, I have an explanation on why the sudden change in weight does not rely on what we do for exercise, but because of the foods we eat. The type of exercise we do only benefits us in becoming more active and to complete phase one in making muscles stronger, wearing it out and breaking the muscle fibres.

Thank you for listening and I hope my studies have in lighten you on how people are skinny or bigger than others.
