If you don't have allergies by the time you're 30, you won't develop them later in life.
False emoticon
Because repeated exposure to substances can prompt an allergic reaction, you are more likely to develop allergies as you get older.

How much dietary cholesterol should you consume from foods each day?
Less than 300 milligrams emoticon
Less than 300 milligrams. Dietary cholesterol is found only in foods of animal origin, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products. It is not found in plant foods like grains, fruits and vegetables. Individuals should limit their intake of dietary cholesterol to less than 300 milligrams daily.

Which of the following is an appropriate warm up?
B and C only emoticon
Contrary to popular belief, stretching is not the same thing as warning up. A warm up can be a lower intensity version of the workout you are about to do, or it can be a completely different exercise. As long as it increases your heart and breathing rates, involves the muscles you are about to use, and lasts for 5-10 minutes it is considered a proper warm up. So why is a warm up so important?

What do all three types of diabetes (type 1, type 2, gestational) have in common?
They result in high levels of glucose in the bloodstream emoticon
If insulin isnít available, or if the body isnít using it correctly, a person's blood glucose will remain elevated. The latter describes diabetes mellitus, a serious health condition that affects millions of people. There are actually three variations of this disease, but all are characterized by abnormally high levels of glucose in the bloodstream. Learn more about the similarities and differences between all three Types of Diabetes.

Soup may curb your appetite. Studies show that people who eat broth or vegetable-based soups (not creamy or high-fat ones) as the first course of a meal consume fewer total calories during their meal. In fact, study participants consumed 20% fewer calories when they started their meal with soup!
