All Natural White Cheddar Cheetos, which are labeled as a non-GMO food, was tested for the presence of genetically modified organisms. DNA was extracted, amplified by PCR and was subjected to electrophoresis to prove the absence of a genetically modified organism in the non-GMO Cheetos. Using DNA molecules from samples of interest is the favored method in GMO detection because DNA is easily recognizable and very stable (Gaudio, 2009). The gel electrophoresis picture shows the different sizes of the DNA fragments from the Cheetos. As pictured in figure one, there was a band for the sample containing the plant primers in lane eight for the photosystem II gene which served as a target area to ensure that the DNA extraction occurred (Smith, 2015). In lane nine was the test food with GMO primers, which did not show a band. This means that the Cheetos lacked a GMO gene and there was no presence of the CaMV promoter and the Nos promoter in the sample food. This concludes that the Cheetos do not contain a GMO, like the packaging indicates. Lanes ten and eleven shows fragments because they were positive controls and were expected to show up with a molecular weight of 500 bp and 200 bp, respectively. The target DNA to detect the GMO was at the CaMV and Nos promoter, which are both present in the GMO positive controls. The negative controls can also be seen
The Coconuts for Caramel is a caramel-flavored ice cream with sweet-cream-coconut, fudge flakes and a caramel core. A brisk dip to this caramel creamy fudge core is a way to experience paradise as it has coconut, caramel, and chocolate all in one place.
OPINION - Personally I think Carol Ann Duffy’s use of the metaphor is very effective in conveying the state of her internally. It also arouses my sympathy towards medusa - it must be difficult dealing with her depression.
If I were a halloween candy I would be Candy Corn. I am Candy Corn because you either love me or hate me. Candy Corn is not one of the most liked candies and I am not one of the most liked people. Most hate me while others love me. Some people find me annoying, weird, gross, etc. which is the same thing for Candy Corn. Some people think Candy Corn is overused and because gross and weird after a while, which is also the case for me. Most people don’t even give Candy Corn a chance to see if it’s good or not. People judge me like they judge the candy.
I just love desert. Its my favorite part of any meal. Sometimes, looking at a dessert menu, I'm paralyzed with indecision. How can I possibly chose between Whipped Cream Cake and Pecan Pralines? As soon as I choose one, I feel badly that I didn't choose the other. Weather a dessert has more or less calories has no affect on me. Just sit that French Chocolate Silk Pie here besides me. In fact, I would be quiet happy if I could eat chocolate for breakfast, lunch, and
“Brownies” is a story by ZZ Packer, a young African American writer. It appears in Packer’s short story collection, Drinking Coffee Elsewhere, which was published in 2003 to great acclaim. The story is about a Brownie troop of fourth-grade African American

To all our customers: we are horrified to inform you that any peanut-free cookies purchased today from our bakery, may in fact not be peanut free. For those who have a peanut allergy, please have someone watch over you or have an epinephrine pen nearby. Your trust is very important to us and we will now be adding a 100% peanut free section of our bakery. We again are very sorry for the danger we have put you all in.
My favorite dessert is the Wood Fired Oven S’mores – a crave-able combination of buttery graham cracker crust, dark chocolate ganache, peanut butter caramel and toasted marshmallows. There are other items that are just as delicious: a peanut butter pie served on a chocolate no-bake cookie crust, crème brulee, and crème brulee cheesecake just to name a
Is that peanut butter on your toast? Do you prefer creamy or crunchy? Whichever, you will probably want to stick with the good old butter after hearing this fact: FDA regulations allow 1 pound of peanut butter to contain 150 bug fragments and 5 rodent hairs. What’s this nonsense about? Apparently, the peanut butter manufacturers don 't get enough profit to make peanut butter without insect parts, such as rodent hair, aphids, mites, and worms. This goes the same for chocolates and any other cheap snacks that you see in the grocery store. After being informed with these kind of disturbing facts, will you throw your mouth-watering peanut butter toast on the ground and grab a jar of honey, or will you accept this hard reality and continue eating your toast? I am the kind of a person who goes with the latter idea and just finish my peanut butter toast and be happy about the new knowledge that I have acquired. It’s a choice between being happy and dumb or smart but miserable. Yet, I don 't think ignorance is bliss and its better to be intelligent and miserable, although some people like me don 't even get miserable and bothered by those informations. For example, a microscopic insect called demodex lives on your eyelashes and mate and lay eggs on your eyelids. Some people might suffer the rest of their lives thinking about demodex on their eyelashes, but I think of it as a fact that you need to go through as you go through life. Also, you will face more difficulties in life that
Dietitians in juvenile detention facilities need to rethink their menu making strategy in light of new health studies. For example the Bay County Juvenile Home/ Detention Center’s breakfast menu has cereals like Trix, Cocoa Puffs, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Trix contains “Corn Syrup” (“Trix™ Bulkpak Cereal”) (one tablespoon has 16G of sugar), trisodium phosphate (also used in stain removers and general cleaners), processed sugars, and more. Some of Cocoa Puffs’ ingredients are cocoa processed with alkali, corn syrup, processed sugars, fructose (a type of sugar), Refiners Syrup ( processed inverted sugar syrup), and more. The ingredients in Cinnamon Toast Crunch are, maltodextrin, processed sugars, fructose, dextrose, trisodium phosphate, soy lecithin, and even more ingredients. Many of these are processed/ refined foods. According to Eva Selhub, from Harvard, scientists have found a correlation between “a diet high in refined sugars and impaired brain function — and even a worsening of symptoms of mood disorders, such as depression”, corn syrup, fructose, Refiners Syrup, and dextrose are all examples of refined
In the article Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) May Provide Antidepressant Activity in Anxious, Depressed Humans: An Exploratory Study, it summarizes how the Depression Research Unit from the University of Pennsylvania conducted a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled study on examining the effects of oral chamomile as an antidepressant for anxiety and depression diagnosed patients (Amsterdam and others 2012). The results were that there was a greater reduction for all the participants on chamomile vs placebo by .05 on the HAM-D standards (Amsterdam and others 2012). There were also clinically meaningful scores of .062 less on current depression and .06 for past diagnosed depression (Amsterdam and others 2012).
described detailed review about etiology of OSMF with special reference to the role of areca nut chewing. Consumption of chilli was hypothesized as an etiologic factor on the basis of ecological observations and a solitary animal experimental study. Subsequent epidemiologic studies that included case-series reports, large cross-sectional surveys, case-control studies, cohort and intervention studies have identified areca nut as the major etiologic agent. Tissue-culture studies involving human fibroblasts, areca nut extracts and areca nut alkaloids supported this etiologic hypothesis by showing fibroblastic proliferation and increased collagen
In the beginning was the potato. How it found its way from the South American highlands into those little sacks of McDonald's fries is a long, adventurous tale, involving Conquistadors, Marie Antoinette, and Thomas Jefferson. Millionaires have been made and millions more have died from dependence on that simple, innocent potato. Here, then, is the story of the spud, which reached its crowning achievement only once it had been paired with oil.
