Depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.


True

The causes of depression are complex and overlapping. In fact, one true cause is not known. Low serotonin levels are a symptom of depression, but there is no proof that low levels of serotonin actually cause depression.

Of adults with arthritis, how many take part in a regular exercise program?


1/2
1/4
emoticon 2/3


According to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, adults with arthritis aren't exercising enough. According to researchers, more than one-third of adults with arthritis do NOT exercise at all (meaning approximately 2/3 do), and people with arthritis are less likely than people without arthritis to meet recommended levels of physical activity (30 minutes of moderate activity most days of the week). Exercise is an important part of an arthritis management program. To learn more, read Managing Arthritis with Exercise.

The hormonal changes of menopause help protect women against cardiovascular disease?


True
emoticon False



Before menopause, women have lower rates of cardiovascular disease than men, in part because of their higher levels of estrogen. After menopause, however, the rate of heart disease in women continues to rise. Women who are 65 and older will experience heart disease equally as often as men of their same age. Get the facts about heart disease in women.

If you're not active or exercising after eating a meal or snack, the food you eat will turn into body fat.


True
emoticon False




Your body is constantly burning calories to perform physiological functions that keep your body alive and healthy (digestion, respiration, brain activity, etc.), so your body needs fuel from food and uses it all day long, even if you're not physically active. This is called your Resting Metabolic Rate, and it "runs" even when you're asleep.

One 5-Hour Energy drink contains 157 milligrams of caffeine. What is the recommended daily limit for adult caffeine intake?


No more than 200 milligrams per day
No more than 1000 milligrams per day
No more than 600 milligrams per day
No more than 50 milligrams per day
emoticon No More Than 400 Milligrams Per Day



For a healthy adult, one 5-Hour Energy Drink per day doesn’t present any major potential health risk. The drink provides about 157 milligrams of caffeine, based on a Forbes-commissioned lab test. Remember that the recommendation for caffeine intake for the healthy adult is no more than 400 milligrams daily. Now, if you are downing several 5-Hour Energy Drinks, along with cups of coffee and cans of soda, you could be easily exceeding the recommendation, which may result in an overstimulated heart and body.

The ''Freshman 15'' is a myth.


emoticon True




Explanation
A 2011 study published in Social Science Quarterly showed that the typical weight gain during the first year of college is just 2.5 to 3.5 pounds and has little to do with higher learning and more to do with becoming a young adult. The not so good news: About 10 percent of freshmen will gain 15 pounds or more during their first year. And that's just the first year. Experts aren't as concerned about these actual pounds as they are about the rate at which students put them on. A 2008 study found that college students gain weight six times faster than the general population. And according to researchers, young adults continue to gain weight (1.5 pounds per year on average) during the four years after they graduate, too. Not all of this can be chalked up to "growing up," though. If left unchecked, the weight gain many experience as young adults can become a serious problem.

The morning after an intense workout, you start feeling quite sore. You notice that you feel this way up to 72 hours after your workout, but then you feel as good as new. Which type of muscle soreness are you experiencing?


Long-Term Muscle Soreness
None of the Above
emoticon Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, called DOMS for short, is the soreness you're probably most familiar with. It's what you feel when you get out of bed the next morning after a tough workout. This type of muscle soreness begins 24 to 48 hours after your workout and actually indicates a natural adaptive process that the body uses after an intense exercise session. When you do a new or particularly challenging workout, your muscle fibers tear on a microscopic level. If you still feel pain well past the 72-hour mark you may be experiencing Long-Term Muscle Soreness. If the pain lingers for longer than 5 days, consult your doctor.

___ is the painful sensation or state of weakness caused by the need of food.



emoticon Hunger
Appetite
A craving




By definition, hunger is "the painful sensation or state of weakness caused by the need of food." Simply put, hunger is a signal from your body that it needs food for energy. When you're truly hungry, your stomach, brain, or both will give you cues to tell you to eat. Signals from your stomach may be growling, an empty, hollow feeling, or hunger pangs. Your brain may send signals such as a headache, trouble concentrating, irritability or fogginess. Some people even experience physical fatigue when they are hungry. Hunger does not go away over time--it only gets worse. And any food will satisfy your hunger and take the hunger signals away.

B - Pressure created when the heart relaxes
C - The top number in a blood pressure reading
D - The bottom number in a blood pressure reading

Both B and D
Both A and D
Both B and C
emoticon Both A & C


Explanation
Blood pressure, the force of blood against artery walls, is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and recorded as two numbers: systolic (pressure on the arterial walls as the heart contracts) over diastolic (pressure on the arterial walls as the heart relaxes between beats). Both numbers are important.

Eggs are exceptionally high-quality protein. In fact, the only source of protein higher in quality than eggs is a mother’s breast milk. Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins in our body, and eggs contain all nine of the essential amino acids—the ones our bodies cannot produce.

emoticon Saturated fat
Unsaturated fat
Monounsaturated fat
Polyunsaturated fat

Explanation
Saturated fat (butter is one example) is packed with hydrogen atoms, making it solid at room temperature. Unsaturated fat (like olive oil) contains fewer hydrogen atoms, so it is liquid at room temperature. Monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fats are types of unsaturated fats.

Vegans, also known as strict vegetarians, omit all meat and animal products (eggs, dairy, etc.) from their diets.

All of the following statements about perimenopause are true EXCEPT which one?


It is the time before menopause when hormonal and biological changes and physical symptoms begin to occur
It lasts for an average of three to five years
Common symptoms may include hot flashes, irregular periods, and vaginal dryness
emoticon A Woman is usually Infertile during this time



Perimenopause occurs before menopause and lasts about three to five years. Although a woman can experience many different menopausal symptoms during this time, that doesn’t necessarily mean she is infertile. Every woman is considered "fertile" until she has experienced a year or more of absent periods, and confirmed this with her doctor.

Claims have been made linking aluminum to Alzheimer’s disease and other health problems, but these claims have been unsubstantiated by scientific research.

If you pack a lunch that includes perishable food items--meat and cheese sandwiches, leftovers, salads, or dairy foods--don't let more than two hours pass from the time you make your lunch at home to the time you put it in the office refrigerator.

The friendly bacteria in your digestive tract make vitamins that you body uses.


emoticon True


Vitamin K can be made in your digestive tract by the billions of bacteria that are in your intestines. Some of these bacteria synthesize vitamin K that your body can then absorb. You can also obtain vitamin K from food sources such as green-leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli, pork, liver, whole wheat, oats, and bran. Fair sources include fruits, vegetables, seeds, tubers, milk, and eggs.

For some people, depression might go away without intervention, but that's not the case for most people who suffer from depression. There is no way of knowing how long depression might last, and it can greatly increase your risk of other complications if left untreated. There are several types of treatment that can quickly and effectively decrease the severity of depression.

Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you are probably right!

How many cups of popcorn does a large tub from a movie theatre usually contain?


5 cups
8 cups
10 cups
25 cups
emoticon 20 Cups


On average, a large popcorn (which contains 20 cups) boasts a mind-boggling 100 grams of fat—the equivalent of more than six fast food hamburgers. With about 1,300 calories, that large popcorn packs almost a full day’s supply of calories for the average dieter.

Daytime sleepiness always means a person isn’t getting enough sleep.


emoticon False


An individual has excessive daytime sleepiness when she feels very drowsy during the day and has an urge to fall asleep when she should be fully alert and awake. The condition, which can occur even after getting enough nighttime sleep, can be a sign of an underlying medical condition or sleep disorder such as narcolepsy or sleep apnea. These problems can often be treated, and you should discuss your symptoms with a physician.

If you feel any discomfort whatsoever during exercise, you should stop.


emoticon False




A certain amount of discomfort during exercise is normal and inevitable. After all, you are challenging your body to do more than it is accustomed to. But pain and other symptoms that occur during exercise can be warning signs that something is wrong. You should stop exercising right away if you: Have pain or pressure in the left or middle part of your chest, or in the left side of your neck, left shoulder or left arm; feel dizzy or sick; break out in a cold sweat; have muscle cramps; feel sharp pain in your joints, feet, ankles, or bones; or notice that your heart starts racing or beating irregularly.

According to the glycemic index, people should eat more foods that have...



emoticon Low Glycemic Index


One system for classifying carbohydrates is the glycemic index. The glycemic index ranks foods on how they affect blood sugar level by measuring how much the blood sugar increases after one eats. For example, white bread is digested quickly into glucose, causing blood sugar to spike quickly. Therefore white bread has a high glycemic index number. In contrast, brown rice is digested more slowly, causing a lower, more gentle change in blood sugar. It therefore has a lower glycemic index number.

The frozen dessert known as 'Italian ice' contains milk, just like ice cream does?

emoticon False




Italian ice (also called Granita) is a mix of juice (or other liquid like coffee), water and sugar, usually in a 4:1 ratio of liquid to sugar. The ices are stirred frequently during freezing to give it a flaky texture. These are almost always fat-free, contain minimal additives and are the lowest in calories of all frozen desserts.

Your ideal post-workout meal or snack should contain about ______% of the calories you burned during your workout.


emoticon 50


Ideally, try to eat enough calories to equal 50% of the calories you burned during your workout. So if you burn about 600 calories during your workout, try to eat 300 calories afterward. Don’t worry about undoing the calorie-burning benefits of your workout–that’s not how weight loss works. As long as you're eating within your recommended calorie range (whether for weight loss or maintenance), you'll be on your way to reaching your goals.

emoticon Simply walking for 15 minutes per day (without changing your diet) can prevent weight gain.

emoticon False


emoticon Walking alone might not be enough to prevent weight gain. Researchers from the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center say that simply walking for 15 minutes (or about 2,000 steps) and eating a couple fewer bites of food can help you prevent future weight gain.

emoticon Women should lift Light Weights for More Repetitions to avoid " Bulking Up "?

emoticon FALSE! !

emoticon While on a Weight Lifting Program, the right hormones ( Testosterone ) are necessary in order to " Bulk Up. " Women's Testosterone Levels are much lower than Men's so, in most cases, they are not capable of building large muscles. In fact, since Muscle takes up less room than Fat, Women tend to lose inches when they Strength Train. So, in addition to the Physical Benefits ( Increased Metabolism, Decreased Risk of Osteoporosis, Increased Strength ) Strength Training will help you Slim Down, too! !
emoticon Women, in fact, are more likely to tone up from Strength Training than to "Bulk Up." Research shows that Women can add up to 30 % Lean Muscle and end up Looking Thinner, Feeling Stronger, and Being Firmer. No matter how many Repetitions you do, you should be Lifting a Challenging Weight and feel Muscle Fatigue by the end of each set.
emoticon You can learn more about Women and Strength Training in the SparkPeople Article " Add Strength Training For Lean Muscle " written by Zach Van Hart
