profileFoxxy1080

  

Conduct a poll of your family, friends, and/or co-workers (try to interview at least 3 people who answer yes to the first question), asking them these questions:

  1. Do you regularly take or use any probiotic supplement products, such as capsules or yogurts, etc.?
  2. If you do, what particular health benefit do you think you are getting from this product?
  3. If not, why don’t you use these supplements?
  4. If I told you that all the scientific research to date shows no added health benefit of any kind for these probiotic products for the average healthy person, would you continue to use them? Why or why not?

Finally, submit as your initial post:

Write a summary report of your findings. Be sure to include:

  1. How many people you interviewed. Of this number, how many did and did not use probiotics? Include a percentage for each of these numbers.
  2. What were the main reasons cited for probiotic use?
  3. What were the main reasons provided for not using probiotics?
  4. What was the response to item “d” about the scientific research on probiotics? Would people change their behavior, why or why not?
  5. Does your data align with Achenbach's claims about human behavior? Why or why not?

The final question (#5) should be the focus of your discussion with your classmates.
