Eating disorders are deadly mental illnesses that run rampant in America and the way we gender-stereotype food may very well be at the heart of the problem. A paper about gender and food from a non-feminist.
At Chestnut Hill College, a Spring semester English class is blogging about their experiences with all things related to food.
Golden Rice is a genetically modified form of rice that packs a lot more vitamin A per serving. Because of this rice, many cases of irreversible blindness and even death due to Vitamin A Deficiency are being prevented. The rice could make a particularly huge difference in developing nations or other countries where many struggle to get their necessary nutrition. So why isn't everyone on board the Golden Rice train?
Recently, My main interest on school lunches were its affect on children who suffer from poverty. There is often a conflict between those who feel it is more important to eat for calories than those who find it more important to focus on nutrition. An important factor to recognize on many public and charter school campuses
When a state does not recognize your moms' marriage, things like health insurance, workers compensation and emergency room visits are entirely a ridiculous process. In the state of Florida, when I was growing up it was perfectly appropriate for an employer to fire you for being gay. Both my moms went through multiple jobs over their 10 years of marriage. (They got married in 2004 in Massachusetts) My mom was still trying to finish school, and health insurance became a luxury resource.
A surprising experience at an "urban farm"
Throughout most of my research project, I have came across the same problem constantly. Whenever I typed into Ebsco-host (a search engine deigned for students' research) "Food Insecurity in Africa", many times South Africa popped up. This has become a problem because more people who are food insecure happen to live in developing countries. For those who don't know, South Africa is a well developed country that has been settled by the English and Dutch for hundreds of years.
My name is Meriel and I'm a freshman at Chestnut Hill College. I major in psychology and minor in philosophy. Eventually, I want to work with children and families in a clinical setting
Hi my name is Cynthia Brain and I am currently a freshman at Chestnut Hill! I love listening to indie music and is a hippie at heart. I am a psychology and global affairs major and so far I have enjoyed every minute of all of my classes here. I decided to be a psychology major because I have always loved helping and listening to others around me, and I hope to influence someone's life in a positive way. I decided to double major in global affairs after I went to Ghana, located in western Africa, this past summer.
