Diseases in the industrial revolution Cholera Cholera was one of the striking diseases of the 19th century. During industrialization, many cities became overpopulated. There was little hygiene and sanitation, and sewage often came into contact with drinking water. Human feces contaminated this water, making it an ideal breeding ground for the cholera bacteria (Vibrio cholerae). People got the cholera infection by drinking this contaminated water, and suffered of diarrhea, dehydration, vomiting, and cramps. The victims of cholera were usually poor people, but rich people also got it. The epidemic cholera first appeared around 1831, and it killed thousands of people.

spread the problem with ease so they were obligated to wear a bell at all times to announce their arrival so people could avoid them. It is said that entire populations came to have leprosy.

Byssinosis People working in textile factories contracted normally byssinosis, a disease caused by inhaling dust cotton textile fibers that were in the air. Byssinosis is a lung disease that eventually provokes respiratory infections and respiratory distress. Because the workplaces were closed, wet, in bad conditions and poorly ventilated this disease proliferated. Leprosy The leprosy is a bacterial infection, which it is caused by the Mycobacterium bacteria, it is transmitted by respiration or physical contact, which leads to disfigurement. The lepry was extremely contagious; people who had the disease could


Active Metabolic Rate USING the health science AND mathematics Then we proceeded to measure ourselves and write down our weight; Ana Sofia Gtz – 173 cm 68 kg (149 lbs) Marcela Abrego- 153cm 42kg (92 lbs) Karelly Rmz- 170cm 76kg (167 lbs) Mandy Otero- 165cm 58kg (127 lbs)

Dinner- Scrambled eggs with bread or tortilla, and or small portion of meat with fruit as dessert. Karelly (overweight) Breakfast- apple and a glass of skim milk Food- Fish of choice and veggies Dinner- 2 quesadillas or a plate of fruit,

When we were done calculated our BMI Ana Sofia- 68/ 173*2 = 22.7 Normal Marcela- 42/153*2= 17.9 Underweight Karelly- 76/170*2=26.6 Overweight Mandy= 58/165*2=22.1 Normal After getting our BMI and analyzing whether we were overweight, normal or underweight we found BMR Ana Sofia- (10 x 68) + (6.25 x 173) – (5 x 15) = 1525kcal Marcela- (10 x 42) + (6.25 x 153) – (5 x 16)= 1296 kcal Karelly- (10 x 76) + (6.25 x 170) – (5 x 16)= 1581kcal Mandy- (10 x 58) + (6.25 x 165) – (5 x 16)=1531kcal Knowing this we have come up with the following Menu’s Ana Sofia & Mandy (both normal) Breakfast - Bowl of cereal and chocolate milkshake or 2 scrambled eggs and a glass of milk Food- Meat and fish of choice, Veggies, Soup of choice, and small dessert (jello, small chocolate) Dinner- 1 scrambled egg and 1 tortilla or 3 quesadillas Marcela (underweight) Breakfast- Scrambled eggs and ham with a piece of bread and milk or bowl of oatmeal, fruit, milkshake and bread. Food- Meat and fish of choice, bread or tortillas, veggies and dessert.

Conclusion After doing these equations, we were shocked by our results. Especially since we thought (at least Marce and Karelly) had a ‘normal’ diet. After reading online we understood how we must burn as much or more calories than we eat in order to loose weight, and that’s why sometimes even though we diet and reduce our calorie intake we do not loose weight. Marce has agreed to check upon her calorie intake and research foods and different diets that might increase her weight. Karelly has agreed to reduce her calorie intake or increase the days she exercises per week and keeping a more balanced diet. Mandy and Ana Sofia are both happy with their results and will continue with their exercise routine and diet. MLA "Personalized Calorie Count." N.p., n.d. Web. 02 Mar. 2013.

Know your caloric intake Knowing how much calories your body should have in order to live or loose weight ( or whatever is your purpose) Once you know how many calories you should have, you can build up a diet that consists of foods that provide the needed nutrients within those calories.

Mix up your menu! Be sure to maintain a diet where there's alot of vegetables, fruits and proteins at the same time! This will ensure nutrients and vitamins from different sources. Having the right amount of fish,meat and veggies is necessary.

Look for natural sugars! We know that saying no to Twinkies and other several desserts might be hard, however these foods are the ones that give you the biggest problems! Not only do they give you a big amount of extra weight but they're often stored in the body as horrible fat and do not even have any benefit other than quick lapses of energy. Look out for natural sugar in fruits, juices, pulps etc. These will give you an energy boost that provides different vitamins that will be used in your skin, or throughout body organs etc.

Rememember to eat your breakfast! Your metabolism plays a huge role in how your food is processed! In order to have a good metabolism you must 'fuel' it. If you do not eat a good breakfast your metabolism might slow down and make ir harder to loose weight for example. Having your breakfast is like giving the initial fuel for your metabolism and digestion process. Be sure to keep hydrated! A healthy diet does not only consist of food! Keeping your body full of the water it needs will make it and feel better! Your skin will be clearer and smoother due to the hydration. Having said that, we reccomend our readers to be aware of their diet! Remember to eat from various food groups and energy sources that will give you plenty of nutrients and proteins to fuel your body. Once you're good on the inside you'll feel and look terrific on the outside too.

Esta es una profesión muy difícil y de mucha dedicación pero te arrepientas de todo el tiempo que le pusiste puesto que los beneficios que te trae te llenan de satisfacción. Después de todo su arduo trabajo a logrado establecer una familia muy estable que conforma de 4 hijos y una esposa. Esta carrera es muy costosa de dinero y tiempo y nos cuenta que su materia favorita siempre a sido ciencias, que tiene que ver con el cuerpo y sus funcionamientos. Siempre a tenido inclinación hacia la medicina por el gusto de salvar vidas y curar enfermedades de los niños pues el cree que el futuro de nuestro país esta en ellos, y con niños sanos e inteligentes tendremos un mejor futuro.
