The Science- Biomechanics
Microbes are living in and on us humans. Microbes sound like a gross thing that we would want to make sure we keep a distance from, right? Well no, not at all actually! We need people, everyone to understand that microbes are so good that they help keep us from other bacterias getting to us (May, 2012). Simply by taking up space, the microbes that just sit on our skin are helping prevent anything bad from getting in/on there. Another good thing that microbes do is help when a person has things like diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, IBS, IBD, and chronic liver disease and even more so it helps with prevention, not just treatment (Ciorba, 2012). Though there are different strands of each microbe to be helpful with different conditions, they may only help a small amount but enough that it is worth trying if one of these conditions starts to arise.
These microbes are what we would called normal flora and can immediately help a person change the way their stomach works so that said person can be relieved of symptoms. With that being said, for continued benefits, it would be best for continued use of food with the microbes for a complete change in the bacteria composition for any stomach/digestive issues(Ciorba, 2012). Examples of the food we should try to eat that include these very beneficial microbes include but are not limited to cheese, yogurt, buttermilk, vinegar, yeast, beer, wine, soy sauce, sauerkraut, dill pickles, olives, cocoa, and black teas (Microbes on Human Life, <link is hidden> /> This isn’t the end of the benefits! The microbes that harm us have to be gotten rid of, right?! Well, the illness inhibiting microbes are killed by helpful microbes (Microbes on Human Life, 2012). I am sure we have all taken an antibiotic at some point on our life, right? Well, those are made of microbes! Have you ever heard that mold is just penicillium? I have and it seem like too many times but its true! That mold along with bacteria is what creates the antibiotics to help heal our bodies of infections (Microbes on Human Life, 2012). On top of that, all of the infectious diseases that are prevented with vaccines as we are babies and go through life come from microorganisms(Microbes on Human Life, 2012). These microbes that cause infectious diseases are what companies make those vaccines from. Now just think about all of the diseases you may have caught by now if you hadn’t had those microbes injected into your body.
After all this, this is just the basics of what needs to be put out there for people to know and understand. So much of the sickness that is in the world today is actually made specifically from microbes that do the body good.
Really, the only way to get people to listen and understand all that these amazing things can do for us is to inform them during times of need. I would love to say that school is a good time to teach but how much more should we put on these teachers? I mean, they can’t do it all! But, if they are covering a subject in science or biology in high school or even if its just that time when a child turns 11 and its time for that TDaP, this is a prime time to teach just how beneficial these microbes are! As people get older they don’t like to listen but when they start questioning doctors about why they need an antibiotic or why they can use something ‘natural’; this is a prime time to teach – maybe even show them that if they just ate certain foods every day or took a supplement like a probiotic (a whole other story) then they may not have gotten this illness. Or while they are sitting in the immunization clinic getting those shots. Too many times I hear someone say ‘I just got the flu SHOT last week and it put me out for 3 days!” Well, people, I’d like to tell you that the flu SHOT is NOT a live virus and cannot give you a live strand of the flu. Its a different story if you’ve had the ‘mist’ but that hasn’t been around for a couple years now and may be going away altogether. Anyway, my point is that there is no ONE prime time to teach about the benefits of microbes but that the most probable time would be when each person is in need of using them to their benefit.

vc I always ask before please let this be in the writers own words. cite all your resources. Put everything in quotes that not original. But 80-90% has to be original. Again please cite all your resources.
I’m doing my topic on the sport of boxing
Biomechanics uses the concepts of force and mechanics to understand and expand the structure and function of biological systems. This is often used in sports or exercise science as a way to train or maximize performance. For this thread, select a favorite sport and discuss how biomechanics impacts the game. Answer the following questions:
How can biomechanics be used to maximize performance in this sport?
What forces are at play in this sport that biomechanics are working against?
List at least two injuries that are most common in this sport. Can you relate these injuries to biomechanics?
Based on your research, what recommendations do you have for people that play this sport?
NOTE: A given sport selection can only be chosen once, so please review what your classmates have selected prior to posting your response. Please write the name of the sport you have chosen in the subject line of your initial post.
