Clean Air and Healthy Homes Project
The Clean Air and Healthy Homes Project is designed to bring student-based scientific inquiry into the classroom, giving students real-world experiences in understanding and researching air pollution problems relevant to their communities. Past student projects have explored radon gas levels in their schools and/or homes, changes in air quality related to increased coal train traffic, and air quality assessments of ski waxing stations, to name a few.

The following questions are designed to understand how your participation in this science curriculum program helps your science learning. Your decision to take part in this survey is voluntary. You may withdraw at any time by contacting your science teacher.

All answers are anonymous and confidential. No names will be associated with any responses, nor will any responses be shared or used by your teacher for grading purposes.

Your answer
Using this excerpt, answer the question below:“A recent study, following more than 2,500 New Yorkers for 9+ years, found that people who drank diet soda every day had a 61% higher risk of vascular events, including stroke and heart attack, compared to those who avoided diet drinks. For this study, Hannah Gardner’s research team randomly surveyed 2,564 New Yorkers about their eating behaviors, exercise habits, as well as cigarette and alcohol consumption. Participants were also given physical check-ups, including blood pressure measurements and blood tests for cholesterol and other factors that might affect the risk for heart attack and stroke. The increased likelihood of vascular events remained even after Gardener and her colleagues accounted for risk factors, such as smoking, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. The researchers found no increased risk among people who drank regular soda.” *
The findings of this study suggest that consuming diet soda might lead to increased risk for heart attacks and strokes. From the statements below, identify additional evidence that supports this claim:
