Societal Needs Lead to Scientific and Technological Developments Related to Internal Systems

The food that we eat are very important to our body. We are always told to eat healthy foods to keep with our health. Many of the foods we eat give us nutrients and the vitamins we need to have a healthy body.

Tecnhological Developments are expanding in where excerise equipment is getting better. New excersise equipment such as the Ab Rocket, and the Stair Climber as examples. The Ab rocket allows someone to work on their Abs using equipment that is easy to essemble and use. A person can use it for 5 minutes a day and slowly see their chest area turn into the abs that they always wanted. The Ab rocket is a new creation that came out in 2010. This new way of getting abs contributes to technological developments on staying healthy alongside with the food we eat. The Stair Climber is a tread mill in where the concept of walking up the stairs is included. Studies showed that walking up stairs strengthens leg muscles and contributes to cardio warm ups. The combination of the tread mill and stair climbing doubles the workout. There are many other new excersice equipment made by technolgical
The improvement in surgery is a technological development. Now a day's society has brought awareness to diseases. Slowly each day someone is diagnosed a type of disease that they got overtime fromnot eating the right type of food, and having the right type of excersise. Now surgans are able to do organ transplants and implants to help solve health problems that an individual could be going through.Organ transplants include heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, pancreas, intestine, and thymus.

One of the biggest technological development in this time is dietary products. Many people decide to go for products that say "zero" on it becaus they are willing to eat anything that will allow them to lose weight yet taste good at the same time. Dietary products include any food or drink that has been chemically altered to have less fat. Pop and sodas that have chemicals added to it to reduce the amount of sugars. Substances like "Coke Zero" For example is kind of like a cheating way to try and stay healthly. The company addedd in chemicals to allow the coke to give off no sort of sugars to the body. Some foods that say "trans fat" or "zero fat" also have been chemically altered to reduce the amount of fat added to it. Since diet products have this type of way to reduce fats and sugars it does'nt necesssarily mean that it is healthy. People should be eating foods with natural fats and natural sugars. There are many ways on cooking foods that keep its natural form and allow someone to stay healthy.

In conclusion technological development meets social needs with all the new improvements on excersice equipment, improvement in sergery, organ transplants/and implants, and diet products. It is our responsibility to stay healthy by eating the right food and getting the right amount of excersice on a daily basis.
