                        二.Reading comprehension


                        It’s a big country!

                        When it comes to body weight, Americans stand out. Most visitors to the United States, no matter where they go across this vast country, comment on the size of many Americans. In fact, these impressions are backed by numerous statistics. For example, the average 5‘4" American weighs 162 pounds, or 15 pounds more than the average person of the same height from Western or Central Europe. Another comparison: At 150 pounds, the average 5’4” American woman is 24 pounds heavier than her Japanese counterpart.

                        Why are Americans so heavyyabo官网入口yabo官网入口yabo官网入口? Some blame the American diet. Certainly it’s true that Americans eat more high-fat foods – meat, dairy products, and processed food – and fewer grains and vegetables than people in other countries. But fat isn’t the whole story. Lifestyle factors – including the tendency for Americans to drive rather than walk or ride a bicycle to work, to snack throughout the day, and to have so many labor-saving devices in the home – appear to contribute to the problem.(165 words)

                        26. According to the article, the average Western European weighs ______.

                           A. more than an American   B. more than a Central European   C. less than an American   D. less than a Japanese person

                        27. In comparison with Americans, people in other countries eat more ____.

                           A. meat   B. dairy products   C. processed food   D. grains


                        Everyone has experienced headaches, but only recently have medical researchers begun to learn more specifically about the causes and possible treatments for different types of headache pain.

                        The most common type of headache is the simple tension headache. Tension headaches are usually mild and short-lasting and can result from various factors, such as stress caused by worry or noise. Tension headaches are caused by a tightening of the neck or back muscles, which slows the flow of blood and, therefore, oxygen to the brain. It is the lack of oxygen that causes the pain. Most headaches can be relieved by taking a mild analgesic such as aspirin. Analgesics expand the blood vessels and restore the normal flow of blood and oxygen to the brain.

                        A more serious type of headache is the migraine. Migraine headaches are often extremely painful and can last for hours or days. Like tension headaches, they can be the result of different factors, including stress, hormonal changes, and allergies. Unlike tension headaches, however, they are caused by an abnormal expansion or swelling (rather than a contraction) of the blood vessels within the head. Medicines that shrink swollen blood vessels can be used to treat migraine headaches.

                        A tiny minority of headaches can be linked to severe physical problems such as head injury or brain tumors. For these types of headaches, there are medicines to treat the symptoms, but there is no cure unless the underlying problem is removed.(244 words)

                        28. This article discusses the ___ ____.
                           A. tiny minority of people who have headaches   B. history of medical research into headaches   C. causes and remedies for headaches   D. physical problems caused by headaches

                        29. A tension headache can result when _______.

                           A. the neck and back muscles relax   B. people get injured in an accident   C. the flow of blood is restricted   D. too much oxygen goes to the brain

                        30. Medicines for migraines _______.

                           A. relax the head and neck   B. generally relieve tension   C. increase the flow of blood   D. cause blood vessels to contract

                        31. Headaches caused by serious physical problems _______.

                           A. can’t be treated   B. don’t cause much pain   C. have no symptoms   D. are not very common

                        Painful Poultry

                        A Its common practice in the poultry industry to amputate the beaks of chickens to prevent them pecking each other. Techniques of debeaking vary, but in the UK it is performed on chicks when they are a few days old, and usually involves amputating one third of the upper part of the beak with a heated blade. The poultry industry has always assumed that chickens quickly recover, but evidence presented at the International Ornithological Congress in New Zealand suggests otherwise. Dr. Michael Gentle, of the Institute of Animal Physiology and Genetics Research in Edinburgh, has shown that chickens can feel chronic pain weeks, and sometimes even months, after the operation.

                        B Chickens have pain receptors in their beak, and so slicing their beaks off with a hot knife must hurt them. What Dr. Gentle has found is that the pain may be delayed, as is the case with human burn victims. The chickens are not in pain initially, but 24 hours later they show clear pain-related behaviour. After the beak is amputated, the remaining stump may take two to four weeks to heal. But even then, pain may continue: the damaged nerves still grow, and may be abnormally and spontaneously active (believed to the cause of stump pain in human amputees). Even two months later, the stump is unusually sensitive to touch and temperature changes.

                        C Many aspects of a chickens behaviour also suggest that it experiences the long-term pain, and perhaps even the depression, typically felt by human amputees. In the first few weeks after debeaking, a chicken spends more time resting than usual. And even six weeks later, when the stump has healed over, a chicken avoids using its beak.

                        D The habit of pecking each other doesnt necessarily start off as aggressive behaviour  it may simply escalate once one bird is injured, and sometimes be a substitute for pecking at litter  but it can quickly leads to the death of weaker birds.

                        E Is debeaking really the solution, though? A very preliminary survey in Scotland, of two commercial laying breeds, found debeaking had no effect on the extent of feather and comb damage, or on body weights of the number of birds that died. A much more effective approach would be to remove the conditions  such as overcrowding and bright light, for example, that are known to contribute to feather-pecking and cannibalism. Where chickens really have to be kept in such conditions, a more sensible solution than debeaking, says Dr. Gentle, would be to breed strains of chickens that don’t peck each other.
