My name is Matthew Pilkey and I am 13 years old and attending the Challenge Program at Calvin Park Public School. I live in Kingston, Ontario and this is my first CWSF. I play volleyball and soccer at a competitive level and I play hockey for fun. I also play a number of sports at school. My favourite school subjects are math and science. Because of my love of math and science I would like to become an engineer. My project has focused on human health. Maybe I would rather become a nephrologist (kidney doctor).

Sommaire:Phosphate has become the "new sodium". Higher consumption of phosphorous/phosphate leads to increased risk of heart attack and stroke. The purpose of my study was to measure the amount of phosphorous in 10 multivitamins. I found that two of them contained over 20% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) and another two marketed for "Heart Health" contained 15-20%, which could actually pose a health risk.
