Jess Slonim Specific Purpose: To inform the audience about the invention of Gatorade. INTRODUCTION Has anybody ever heard of Dr. James Robert Cade? Dr. Cade was born is San Antonio in 1927 and later served in the U.S. Navy. He also became a professor of medicine and physiology at the University of Florida. However, these interesting facts have little to do with how Dr. Cade became famous for inventing a sports drink in 1966 that people of all ages love to this day, the invention of Gatorade. I will now talk about the background of how Gatorade was invented, how it affects athlete’s performance, and how far the invention has come. BODY I. First, I will discuss how the invention of Gatorade came about. A. Before Gatorade, people were drinking orange juice or a sugar containing soft drink. I. Just offered tang & taste. II. Expect juice or soft drinks would function well to provide rehydration during exercise. B. Dr. Cade and associates figured what ingredients they would/should put in the drink.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
