INFLUENCE OF DIETARY FACTOR IN STUDENT PERFORMANCE

Introduction Nutrition during adolescence is of great importance in the quality of life and in school performance. In our society, eating habits are changing due to socio-cultural and family factors, new ideas about self-image and a global food culture. Data published in the National Health Survey (ENSANUT 2006), suggest that excess weight in adolescents between 12 and 19 years, has a national average of 31.9% in Mexico. One in 3 teens have excessive weight in our country. Several studies suggest that foods high in energy density and large portions of food, increase energy consumption and hence weight gain. Bottled soft drinks currently consumed, contribute to the epidemic of obesity and type II diabetes in Mexico. The intake of energy from these drink, represent 21% of the total energy consumption in Mexican adolescents. This, added to the energy from the diet, both contribute to these epidemics. Therefore, the adoption of patterns of consumption of healthy food and drinks for adolescents should be a priority for the population, since a well-balanced diet positively affects the physical and intellectual development of adolescents.

Maternal preconception and gender selection

Maternal preconception and gender selection has long been a controversial topic. Are you more likely to conceive a boy if you eat red meat, and a girl if you make love under a full moon? Oldwives tales and fantasies exploring sexual position, diet, and dominance circulate the Internet however how can we logically distinguish between fact and fiction? The topic has widespread cultural implications. Sex-related abortions are on the increase in China and India where local customs and religious virtues appear to strongly correlate with the systematic elimination of girls. In an effort to challenge the dogma of chance fertilization two main research streams have explored variations in maternal condition and gender conception. The ‘Maternal Dominance’ hypothesis has suggested trait dominance, underpinned by serum testosterone, correlates with increased male conception rates. The second, ‘Maternal condition’ hypothesis relates to pre-conceptual maternal diet, investigating variations in both quantity and quality of diet and effects on sex ratios. However such assumptions have been difficult to replicate and more recent evidence has suggested changes in maternal condition may have a stronger influence Maternal adaptations in behavior appear to closely correlate with biased gender ratios and can have wider connotations on sex-linked disease inheritance. However unless we can identify molecular mechanisms influencing the intrauterine environment and follicular development, hypothesis will remain mere assumptions.

Medical revalidation

Our qualitative assessment of the impact to date of medical revalidation on the behaviour of doctors and the culture of organisations within seven case study sites across England. Medical revalidation of doctors became a statutory obligation for all employing organisations in 2012, but its origins stretch back to 2000. In that period, the NHS has undergone many changes and been scrutinised by several reviews. It was against this shifting context that The King's Fund carried out a qualitative assessment of the impact to date of medical revalidation on the behaviour of doctors and the culture of organisations within seven case study sites across England.

Island ( 1962 ) by Aldous Huxley

In his last major work, the Island, the evils that Aldous Huxley has been warning us about in his earlier works - over-population, coercive politics, militarism, mechanization, the destruction of the environment and the worship of science will find their opposites in the gentle and doomed Utopia of Pala. (Woodcock,18) Aldous Huxley used his books to explore his struggles against personal tragedy and to search for the meaning of human existence. His interest in eastern philosophies and mysticism began in the early twenties with the study of Blake and Bohme. His fascination with eastern religion was one of the reasons he departed on a world tour in 1925. The island of Pala is probably one of the islands of the Indonesian Archipelago. In Island, Huxley's portrayal of the Palanese beliefs demonstrate principles of Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism and Confucianism. The beliefs, values and struggles of a lifetime are combined to form this culmination of his life's work.
