Journal Entry 7/11/14
Today we learned about the heart. We learned that the heart has four different chambers. We also learned that the veins cycle blood back to the heart. We also saw a presentation on the health in LA County. The data from each county was broken down and color coded. Inglewood and Compton, cities that are primarily black and Latino had the worst health. When he showed us these statistics, I realized that we have the short end of the stick. We have too many fast food restaurants where we live and not enough healthy choices.
