Frain 1 Jack Frain Wanninger Biology Honors 6 September 2016 The Effects of Proteins on Mortality Rate Science Daily’s “High animal protein intake associated with higher, plant protein with lower mortality rate” article discusses the effects of protein intake on an individual’s mortality rate. The Massachusetts General Hospital conducted the largest study of protein intake ever. Using more than thirty years of data, the hospital determined that the more protein from animal sources one intakes, the higher the mortality rate. The more plant protein intake, the lower the mortality rate. However, these only apply if the person has at least one additional factor associated with an unhealthy lifestyle. It also states fish and chicken are the healthiest forms of animal protein. Proteins were one of the four biomolecules covered in Unit One. Made up of amino acids, proteins have four functions: as enzymes, the immune system, to transport, and structure.

    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.
