How to Change the World

It seems counterintuitive that the concept of who are the people that make such a life-saving contribution to the world are those who don’t make a dime for their actions. The names mentioned in the article are people who provided help to communities in grave danger at the price of 0 dollars and 0 cents, on the other side, compared to the government who are being paid in salaries are just providing little to nothing for communities that are in the danger zone. Some would strongly agree that those who provide the most help are those who have been in their shoes; others would say they are wrong and the government provides more help in the long run. names like J.B Schramm who helped low income students get into colleges, Veronica Khosa, developed a safe environment for those with aids to get proper care and feel comfortable. The list is endless, the difference being that a party that are not being paid are making more of a contribution for communities than the government who are not only being paid but being provided with more resources.

Do Multivitamins Really Work?

It seems counterintuitive that those who believe that eating a small gummy or pill can prevent them from getting dangerous diseases, whether they do actually help or not there is a lot of money being thrown towards a market that either tries to help people or make them believe that it actually works and it is a scam. Multivitamins are marketed to help anyone who takes them to either build their immune systems towards deadly diseases or something that shouldn’t be caught. Studies have been conducted and the patients supervised had no change, in fact, some diseases became contagious. One example of how the mulitgummies can do more harm than marketed as, the elderly get their iron from rice, cereal, and bread, if they were to take a gummy it would increase the risk of heart disease.

Does Using Paper Take CO2 out of the Environment?

It seems counterintuitive that the thing providing the ability for us to live longer is also being greedy and taking some of the carbon dioxide and release a worse gas. As climate change becomes a greater threat the call for more carbon or gases could reignite the flow of plant life and make the earth more green. People say more wood and recyclable furniture or products will store more carbon so that when they are decomposed they release the same air as they collected it but that’s not what it seems like. The author had strong claims that this is nothing but an attempt for people to believe that something good is being done and how the earth is being saved, without the data people are spoon fed false information/mislead. In hopes of that more would come to realization that these environmentalist ideas may not be as promising as they say it could be.
