  • Cage Free Essay

    Cage-free or not The Huffington Post article “McDonald’s Plans To Switch To Cage-Free Eggs” addresses McDonald’s plans to complete the transition to cage-free eggs in the U.S. and Canada by 2025.1 The article not only raises concern about cage-free eggs, but also discusses whether hens should be bred in the cage-free system or in the conventional battery cage system. In this essay, I will discuss the cage-free system in two aspects. On one hand, it is morally right to switch to the cage-free system to protect animal welfare. On the other hand, eggs laid by hens raised in such a system ensure better nutrition for humans. However, some may criticize the cage-free system for its huge cost and the high price of cage-free eggs. In spite of those criticisms, I argue that the cage-free system is an improvement in the human society. This can be seen through the practices by some leading restaurants, such as Burger King, and Carl’s Jr. Thus, I conclude that the transition to the cage-free system is worth carrying out. In terms of animal welfare, the cage-free system treats hens in a more humane manner and ensures them a life with more freedom. An overwhelming majority of hens is limited in the conventional cages, where they each can share only 67 square inches of the cage space.2 67 square inches cannot even compare with a piece of letter-size paper which takes up about 93.5 square inches. Such tiny space is not enough for the hens to spread their wings, let alone…

  • Relationship Between Omega-3 And Behavior

    Author Stephen Mihm wrote an article for the New York Times on April 16th, 2006. Mihm explores the correlations between Omega-3 and behavior, and potentially how Omega-3 can eventually lead to lower murder rates. Mihm talks about researchers, and the different experiments conducted relating to Omega-3 effects on prison inmates. Mihm believes that prison would be the perfect place to test a novel hypothesis. "Most prisons are notorious for the quality of their cuisine (pretty poor) and the…

  • Analysis Of Protein Concentration Of The Homogenate

    Here we see that the kidney homogenate had the highest concentration of triglycerides followed closely by the liver homogenate. In order to obtain values for glycogen, free glucose and total glucose concentrations had to be calculated using the glucose standard curve. Once these numbers were known, subtracting free glucose from total glucose came out to the amount of glycogen. Figure 4 shows free glucose levels, where the liver had the highest amount and the kidney the lowest. Figure 3 provides…

  • Lipids In Milk Lab Report

    example of a triglyceride. Triglycerides have 3 hydrophobic tails making the molecule really polar. The lipid that travelled the second furthest was the cholesterol. Since cholesterols are an example of a lipid that’s amphipathic it has characteristics of both hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules, the cholesterol did not travel as far as the triglyceride. However, cholesterol molecules are more hydrophobic than they are hydrophilic making it more polar than phosphatidyl ethanolamine,…

  • Fatty Acid Lab Report

    INTRODUCTION Fatty acid is a carboxylic acid with a long aliphatic chain, which is either saturated or unsaturated. Most of the naturally occurring fatty acids contain unbranched chain of an even number of carbon atoms, from 4 to 28. We usually derived fatty acids from triglycerides or phospholipids. Fatty acids are very important sources of fuel because, when they metabolized, they yield large amount of ATP .Fatty acids are regulated by certain transcription factors which control the action of…

  • Lipid Chromatography Lab Report

    observed the results. Next, we removed the chromatography paper as the solvent approached the top of the silica gel strip, and drew a line across the stip. To view the experiment more clearly, Amino black solution was sprayed on the silica gel strip and dried with a blow dryer. Once it had dried, the silica gel strip was placed in a Coplin jar containing iodine crystals for a few minutes (3-5 minutes) (Harris-Haller, Ninth Edition). After the allotted time, the strip was observed and the…
