Animal Cell Models
All living things are made up of units called cells. A cell, the basic unit of life, is a microscopic structure that forms the basic structural as well as functional unit of living organisms. Cells can be divided into two categories called prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Prokaryotic cells are simple cells that lack nucleus and membrane bound organelles whereas, eukaryotic cells are more complex cells comprising nuclear and cytoplasmic material sheathed by a cell membrane. Both plants and animals consist of eukaryotic cells. Eukaryotic cells have a standard set of features, however, plant and animal cells do have their Read the rest of this entry »
Animal Cell Model Ideas
As the name signifies, an animal cell is an advanced, eukaryotic type of cell isolated from animal species. If you have learned plant and animal cell differences, you might be already aware that the latter type is nearly circular in shape. An animal cell lacks the protective cell wall, hence the shape of the cell is framed by a plasma membrane. Inside the cell, there are various membrane bound organelles, each of which is responsible for specific functions.
Topics concerning plant cell vs animal cell and their similarities are introductory chapters in science subjects. They Read the rest of this entry »

The Health Benefits of DHA
Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid found throughout the body. It is a major structural fat in the brain and retina accounting for up to 97% of the omega-3 fats in the brain and up to 93% of the omega-3 fats in the retina. It is also a key component of the heart. Numerous studies confirm that everyone, from infants to adults, benefits from an adequate supply of DHA.
DHA omega-3 is naturally found throughout the body and is most abundant in Read the rest of this entry »
