Project: Ions for your Health
The ions found in sports drinks are not chosen randomly; they are the same ones that are lost from your body when you exercise vigorously. A wide range of ions play critical roles in maintaining health and proper body function. Some of these ions are present in the body in relatively large amounts and some are present only in trace amounts. Other ions can be toxic to humans, even in small amounts.
Follow the directions outlined in the project guide (attached below). For this assignment, you will report your findings in a podcast, script, or brochure that includes all the pertinent information. Be creative in your reporting—use this opportunity to “advertise” the importance of these ions to human health.
