24 February 2014 Emotional and Physical Behaviors Relating to Food
It is obvious and should be common sense that what a person puts in his or her body will have a direct effect, not only on the person’s overall physical health, but also his or her mental health, emotions, think, and the ways of processing information. The most influential factors regarding human intake are air, water, food & beverages. I will be concentrating on the main focus of the direct effect of food on emotional and physical behaviors. The human body was designed to function as a highly-tuned, self-sustaining, bio-chemical machine that has a very complex system of symbiotic interplay within its infrastructure. Just as if a person was to put water in the gas tank of his or her car, as a result he or she has major mechanical problems requiring massive repairs. The human body has certain limitations and guidelines that must be very closely adhered. The human body must maintain critical balances to remain healthy and working the way it was intended and to be able to balance the effects of food on human beings. Nutrition is a basic biological influence on human behavior. Consuming large amounts of “junk food,” like sweetened boxed cereals, candy, carbonated drinks, potato chips, and fast food cause depression, hyperactivity, and even anger in children and teenagers. The amount of candy eaten by children and sometimes adults also causes major sugar imbalances to occur in the human body. In the article “Food Traditions: The Thread that Links Generations,” Bonny Wolf explains why “Food imprinting is strong’’ (135). There is a daily absorption of high-sugar or artificially sweetened carbonated drinks using such poisonous artificial ingredients as NutraSweet, Aspartame, Sucralose, inordinate amounts of high-fructose corn syrup, and many other physically dangerous additives and…...

Millions of sperm are ejaculated by a man during orgasm, just one sperm is needed to fertilise the egg.

Physical As this is the initial stage of life there is not much physical development within this stage only of when the sperm intergrades with the egg and creates the embryo. Dependent of the chromosome will determine the baby’s sex.

McGregor’s Theory Y Role at Whole Foods In 1960, Douglas McGregor wrote The Human Side of Enterprise, which framed two sets of molds about human nature. The first one is Theory X is unenthusiastic and negative. It assumptions people don’t like working and must be forced to do their work, avoid responsibility and have little motivation. As Kopelman and et al. (2012) stated “the manager who holds Theory X beliefs may unwittingly engineer a low level of employee motivation and (ironically) lament to a colleague that you can't get good workers nowadays” (pg. 451). Theory Y is the counterpart. In this Theory, mangers assume employees can be self-motivated, committed, responsible and creative workers. Whole Foods hires people that are well-trained who flourish in their......

Food Behaviors and Attitudes

...ethnic background has greatly influenced my view of food. While daily food choices still show a small persuasion of the Italian culture, it is the holiday season when the true influence is evident. While food is important aspect of any culture, I feel that this is truer of the Italian ethnicity, as it is commonly stereotyped. My great grandparents emigrated from different regions of Italy, primarily Sicily and Naples. Their families found each other in and around East Haven, Connecticut, the fourth most Italian-American community in the United States. As did scores of immigrants, they upheld many of their cultural behaviors while adopting the norms of American society. Food was an integral part of the transition. While food was a great way to connect with people of your own culture and of other cultures as well, the cost of living for many people of the time prevented them from enjoying all of the luxuries that we are now able to afford. “As immigrants from different regions of Italy settled in different regions of the United States and became ‘Italian-Americans,’ they brought with them diverse traditions of foods and recipes that were particularly identified with their regional origins in Italy and yet infused with the characteristics of their new home locale in America.” While my Italian heritage is somewhat evident in my daily food choices, special occasions are a time to truly celebrate in a traditional way and food is an integral part of these traditional......

Food and the Tourist Behavior

... 1.1 Introduction Food is an essential thing for human to stay alive. For the purpose of living, human will search for food and this occasion has led to travel. Traveling for food has taken an entirely new meaning from what it used to when voyages were undertaken for spice trade, but voyagers still carried dried food, as the local cuisines were looked upon with suspicion (Tannahill, 1988). Tourists have some basic needs, whether they find themselves at home or whether they are travelling; the most basic of which is to eat (Lopez and Sanchez, 2011). Despite the growing of food tourism in the world, Chang and Mak (2012), food consumption studies are predominantly concerned with understanding the determinants of various food-related behavior, most commonly liking, preference, choice and intake. Food consumption is recognized as a complex behavior with cultural, social, psychological, and sensory acceptance factors all playing a role in the decision making process (Koster, 2009). While it is widely discuss on the behavior of tourist towards the food that they consumed, it is also believe that local food also play a big role on showing their behavioral on food consumption. Cohen and Avieli (2004) stressed that local food at a destination could be an use under certain circumstance. This is possible because tourist have to confront with food in their destination they are visiting, Pliner & Salvy (2006) though maybe some tourists may suffer from “food neophobia,” a concept...

...Research Title/Topic: Before and After Effects of Fast-Food advertisements in the perspectives of consumers/consumption behavior Introduction Food advertisements of different fast-food chains have always exerted massive amount of efforts to make their “ads” appealing and effective to the mass. From commercials, to billboards, to newspapers and etc., their advertisements caught the attention of consumers and it definitely paved way to make their sales at its peak. The problem is, sometimes, types of advertisements such as glittering generality, bandwagon and the like lead to giving false hopes to people for the sake of money.

The effects of these food advertisements could trigger either positively or negatively in our lives. We become molded of these advertisements until they finally influence our lifestyle. We kept on being amazed and driven to purchase these products without knowing what it will affect us. This research will be beneficial especially to people who are fond of eating at fast-food chains. This research will identify how much our sensory and cognitive perception is affected by these food advertisements as well as its effect on our......

Emotional and Physical Effects of Rape

...especially non-physical effects. Those of us who have the privilege of receiving public education are taught about the importance of consent-getting someone’s permission before touching their body-in sexual education classes, or maybe we are taught by our parents or other guardians. Regardless of how we are taught, we all learn that it is wrong to touch other people when we are told “no”. However, we hardly ever take the time to consider that there are more lasting effects of sexual assault than making someone uncomfortable. Sexual assault damages victims’ health physically as well as psychologically (Campbell). It is most common to hear about the physical impacts sexual assault can have on victims. Perpetrators of sexual assault are motivated by feelings of power and control over their victims, and therefore are violent and forceful, which can cause lasting physical damage to the victim. One hundred percent of completed rapes, 39 percent of attempted rapes, and 17 percent of sexual assaults against females result in injured victims. Immediate physical effects a person can experience after a sexual assault or rape include bruising, bleeding, difficulty walking, soreness of the body, disorientation, nausea, vomiting, and tension headaches, among other effects. Some other physical consequences experienced by rape survivors include gynecological damages, pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases (“STDs”) (Eby, Campbell, Sullivan, and Davidson). Rape involving......

...disabled, implement early intervention programs, and invented transitional services to help students succeed in life. Students are diagnosis with disabilities regardless of their age. Some are born with the disability due to genetics (genes) or inheritance from their parents. Other students tend to develop disabilities over time due to prenatal issues such as alcohol, drugs, viral infection, and preterm birth. Developmental disabilities can be serious and could last a lifetime. Disabilities can come in different forms. There are physical disabilities, for which we can see something has cause the student to be disabled.

Discuss Factors Relating to Attitudes to Food and Eating Behaviours

...Discuss factors relating to attitudes to food and eating behaviours. (8+16 marks) Sophie Wright Attitudes to food and eating behaviour can be influenced by several factors including culture, mood and health concerns. One explanation of attitudes to food regards the social learning theory and involves the role of parental modelling within our food choices. Social learning theory emphasises the impact that observing other people has on our own attitudes and behaviour. In terms of food choices, parental modelling inevitably affects children because parents control the foods bought and served in the home. Brown and Ogden (2004) reported consistent correlations between parents and their children in terms of snack food intake, eating motivations and body dissatisfactions, reinforcing the idea that children mimic the behaviours of their parents. Not only does social learning apply to the effect of our parents, but also to the effect of the media and peers. MacIntyre et al (1998) studied the impact of the media on eating behaviour and found that the media have an impact both on what people eat, and also their attitudes to certain foods. However, MacIntyre also stated that how much we are influenced is determined by many other factors, for example age, income and background. The findings of Meyer and Gast’s 2006 study on the influence of peers support the idea of social learning theory in relation to eating behaviour. They surveyed 10-12 year olds and found a positive......

Emotional, Cognitive, Behavioural and Physical Responses to a Poor Prognosis

...In response to a diagnosed condition with a poor prognosis, individuals are expected to experience a range of both physical and psychological responses. The stress resulting, can be explained as “the internal process that occurs as people try to adjust to events and situations, especially those that they perceive to be beyond their coping strategies” (Bernstein et al., 2015, p. 103). Whilst the severity of the response is dependent on the individual involved, people often display similar reactions to stressors. In addition, physiological and psychological responses often occur together to form the individual’s response. The psychological responses can be further broken down into behavioural, cognitive and emotional changes. In response to a diagnosis with a poor likely outcome, individuals will likely experience a chain of emotional responses. Initially, the patient may be subjected to fear which may result in ongoing anxiety for the patient. Other common reported feelings due to stressors are anger, depression and irritability. However, in relation to a poor prognosis, individuals can often experience feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Individuals can act to reduce their emotional stress responses by employing emotion focused coping. Typically this involves “actions that are directed toward decreasing the emotional component of a stress response” (Grivas, Letch, Down,& Carter, 2010, p.599) and may include strategies such as denial, acceptance, distancing......

Physical, Behavioral, and Emotional Developmental Effects of Child Sexual Abuse

... University of Maryland University College                         Physical, Behavioral, and Emotional Developmental Effects of Child Sexual Abuse   Cathy F. Breingan                         PSYC355, Child Psychology Joann Altiero, Ph.D. April, 2009 It is difficult to believe that it is a sick world out there full of very sick and vile people. Not only is it bad enough that adults cannot even feel safe anymore out there in the world but the children are just as vulnerable—they are more vulnerable and at risk in more ways than one. One of those vulnerability and risk is child abuse. There are different types of child abuse. They are child neglect, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and the focus of this paper, child sexual abuse. The Darkness to Light Organization “defines child sexual abuse in four distinct ways: (1) Any sexual act between an adult and a minor or between two minors when one exerts power over the other; (2) Forcing, coercing or persuading a child to engage in any type of sexual act. This, of course, includes sexual contact. It also includes non-contact acts such as exhibitionism, exposure to pornography, voyeurism and communication in a sexual manner by phone or internet; (3) an ongoing and traumatic experience for its victims; and (4) a crime punishable by law” (cited in Dove & Miller, 2007). With sexual abuse come negative effects and developmental issues that can carry through adulthood. These effects will haunt the victims for the......

There are many classrooms that have a few students with a disability or disorder that cause them in misbehave or act inappropriately, which can cause them to fall behind in many areas. Learning can be difficult at times and failure is a part of this and is this is an important part of learning. Failure can be meet with motivation to achieve better next time, and encouraging students to strive on. When teachers understand a disorder and the tools needed to help these students they will have the ability to make differences in student's lives. Teachers need to have a clear understanding of each and every child that attends class and this includes those with various disorders and disabilities. Teachers have many responsibilities such ad the children's expectations, of peacemaker, disciplinarian, and educator. Not only these, but knowing the correct strategies to fulfill what is expected of them. Disabilities such as physical, other health impairments and brain trauma are a few of the disabilities that teachers need an abundant amount of knowledge in for the success of the student, and not just the disabled students. Students with disabilities may have a wide range of physical or other health impairments from academic success to social skills and the teachers understanding of these and the lack in which......
