C.REVIEW OF LITERATURE
The use of charcoal as a simple remedy for different health problems is an ancient way of treating many common diseases that afflict humankind dates back in the time of Hippocrates who lived from 460 to 370 B.C. In the late 1800, Ellen G, White spearheaded the use of charcoal in the treatment of different diseases. She said, “The Lord has given some simple herbs of the field that at times are beneficial; and if every family were educated in how to use these herbs in case of sickness, much suffering might be prevented, and no doctor can be called. One of the most beneficial remedies is pulverized charcoal placed in a bag and used in fomentations. This is a most successful remedy…I have prescribed this simple remedy, with perfect success…This works like a charm.”
The use of charcoal in treating diseases is a product of long years of scientific studies. Charcoal is defined as an amorphous, porous form of carbon made by the destructive distillation of almost any carbonaceous material such as wood, coconut shells animal bones, and corn cobs. The medicinal properties of charcoal are given strong boost by the United States (a book that tells how to prepare and use medicines). Besides giving direction for making charcoal, the Dispensatory lists several problems that can be treated with charcoal. Activated charcoal exerts its effects by absorbing a wide variety of drugs and chemicals. The important work of charcoal powder in the treatment of diseases is to adsorb chemical substances that are harmful to the body, like germs, viruses, toxins, wound secretions, and other products of infections. To adsorb means to take up, hold on, or spread out on the surface of the molecules. Charcoal works like a magnet.
Charcoal poultice is made up of charcoal powder mixed with enough water to make into a paste. It is spread into a thin dry cloth with all the sides folded over the charcoal paste and then applied over the affected area of the skin or over the body organ. From thirty minutes to two hours after the application of the charcoal poultice, there is a feeling of itching around the area or a little pricking pain. That is because charcoal sucks what it can absorb from within. The advice is to never remove the poultice. Keep it on because your body is responding positively to the treatment. Pain may be felt from three to seven days.
The internal use of charcoal powder is called charcoal drink. Charcoal drink is made of charcoal powder diluted in a glass of drinking water according to dosage for medical purposes. The charcoal drink is tasteless. The taste of the drinking water when mixed with charcoal powder doesn’t change. There is no difference in taste between a glass of clear drinking water and a glass of water with charcoal powder. The only difference is the color.
Treatment is a therapy used to remedy a health problem. It is a process or intervention in the design of experiments a method of combating, ameliorating, or preventing a disease, disorder, or injury. Active or curative treatment is designed to cure; palliative treatment is directed to relieve pain and distress; prophylactic treatment is for the prevention of a disease or disorder; causal treatment focuses on the cause of a disorder; conservative treatment avoids radical measures and procedures; empiric treatment uses methods shown to be beneficial by experience; rational treatment is based on a knowledge of a disease process and the action of the measures used. Treatment may be pharmacologic, using drugs; surgical, involving operative procedures; or supportive, building the patient's strength. It may be specific for the disorder, or symptomatic to relieve symptoms without affecting a cure.

An Investigatory Project:
Charcoal Leaves as an alternative for cooking
Ms. Rowelyn Molina
In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements in Physics
Dried leaves are the main material in the project. The purpose of doing the project is to find an alternative if the ordinary is not available. And the researchers need to find a sufficient and a good alternative so people will not buy charcoal, instead they will do it on their house and cook their own food using this dried leaves charcoal. Flour, water and dried leaves are the main materials of the dried leaves charcoal. To make it: First, burn a three plastic bags of dried leaves until it turn into ashes. Then, put it on a container and put a half cup of water (depends o how many ashes). Put flour and mix it carefully after that mold it to any shape and get the blower or put it on a hot surface. After it dries. The charcoal is now ready to be used. The researchers found out that dried leaves charcoal is a good alternative if the ordinary charcoal is not available. And both the charcoals produce same heat but don’t fire up at the same rate. But both of it can cook food, has the same color of fire and has any...

Charcoal Soap & Acne

Charcoal and soap---two words that don't seem to go together. Yet in recent years, activated charcoal---a specially processed form of carbon---has increasingly been used in natural soaps and cleansers. Charcoal, it's said, draws impurities and toxins out of the skin, helping to relieve acne and other skin problems. Is it effective? Possibly. Is it harmful? Almost certainly not. You'll need to experiment to see if charcoal soap can alleviate your acne, but you can do so confidently: Charcoal is proven to do no harm to humans.
Charcoal has been used medicinally for millennia. Ancient Egyptians are believed to have used it as a poultice to keep wounds clean; Hindu documents from 450 B.C. discuss charcoal for water filtration. In the 18th century, charcoal was studied by chemists and pharmacists, who were interested in its ability to protect the human body from toxins. Activated carbon is still used today in water filters and as a poison antidote.

Charcoal is defined as dark grey residue consisting of impure carbon obtained by removing water and other volatile constituents from animal and vegetation substances  or a black grey form of carbon, produce by heating wood or other organic substances in enclosed space without air.
Charcoal is basically composed of tiny particles or carbon which is usually produce by slow pyrolysis, heating of wood, sugar, bone char, or other substances in the absence of oxygen resulting in soft, brittle, lightweight, black, porous material which resembles coal and is about 50 percent to 95 percent of carbon.
The traditional way of producing charcoal is ‘the Kiln process’ is normally associated with huge amount of smoke which is a major contributor to the depletion of ozone layer but with the help of Orin Stafford, who helped Henry Ford established his briquette business developed an alternative method of producing charcoal in the early 1900s called the retort method.
The retort method involves passing wood through a series of hearths or oven. It is a continuous process wherein wood constantly enters one end of a furnace and charred material leaves the other. Virtually no visible smoke is emitted from a retort, because the constant level of output can effectively be treated with emission control device such as afterburners .
Charcoal could be found in several forms which include activated...
*A Brief Overview of a Venous LegUlcer *and the Assessment Process
The nurse must have the skills and knowledge to identify a venous legulcer. Dowsett (2005) believes that it is important that nurses and other health care professionals look for the underlying cause of an ulcer. Whereas, the Royal College of Nursing (1998) has different views, and argues that, professionals who are fully trained inlegulcer management should only be able to identify an underlying cause as it is easily mistaken that diagnosis of an arterial legulcer is made rather than venous which could cause serious treatment complications for the wound as well as the patient. There are major problems associated with a venous legulcer such as, pain, loss of mobility, financial implications and much more which will be discussed in chapter 3. Legulcers appear as shallow holes or craters in which the tissue underneath is exposed. They can vary in size, discolouration and depth (National Health Service Direct 2008) (NHS). The clinical factors of a venous legulcer are, lipodermatosclerosis (champagne bottle shaped leg), which is cellulites affecting the dermis and subcutaneous tissue (Finlay & Chowdhery, 2007), hyperpigmentation, derived red blood cells...

Kingsford Charcoal is one of the core specialty products manufactured and sold by Clorox Company. Currently, it has 2 products marketed under “Kingsford” brand name; Regular – “Blue Bag” and Instant – “Red Bag”. It enjoys steady revenue growth since 1980s, but sales statistics for FY2000 shows that there would be a drop in volume growth, which will have a major impact in its net profit. As a market leader, Kingsford maintains its market share, but the main concern will be the performance of entire charcoal category which declines in terms of shipping and penetration trends (Figure 1). The company has been practicing sales orientation, focusing to sustain market share within charcoal category and has been...

In terms of a future action plan, we feel Kingsford Charcoal should target the market segment identified as Regular Exclusive, and select the pricing scenario labeled total line pricing increase. To balance advertising and promotions, we propose that Kingsford maintain the forecasted advertising budget, while implementing a promotional strategy focused on co-marketing, cross-promotions and retailer enticement. Additionally, we recommend Kingsford explore offshore options for production (Exhibit A).
Based on market research data, we believe the Regular Exclusive users should be the target segment. This group identified grilling with real charcoal as a satisfying skill that is worth doing right, and view making a fire with charcoal as an easy task. Also, this segment is most comfortable with charcoal grilling, has more time to grill, is less nervous when grilling for groups, and does not see charcoal grilling as a hassle. With such attitudes characterizing the Regular Exclusive users, it is unlikely that they will be attracted to gas grilling as an alternative.
After calculating the expected monetary value (EMV) of...
