This amount can be achieved by drinking 7-8 eight ounce glasses of water throughout the day. Drinking enough water is important for maintaining bodily functions, regulating body temperature, and promoting overall health and well-being.

    When you sneeze or cough, it is important to cover your mouth to prevent the spread of germs. Using a tissue is recommended as it can catch the droplets and be disposed of afterwards. Washing your hands is crucial to remove any germs that may have been transferred to your hands. Disinfecting surfaces that may have come into contact with the sneeze or cough can help eliminate any remaining germs.

    Getting plenty of rest with help your immune system stay strong.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Getting plenty of rest helps your immune system stay strong because sleep is essential for the body to repair and rejuvenate itself. During sleep, the immune system releases proteins called cytokines that help fight off infections and inflammation. Lack of sleep can weaken the immune system, making you more susceptible to illnesses. On the other hand, getting enough rest allows your immune system to function optimally, increasing your body's ability to defend against pathogens and maintain overall health.

  • 6. 

    When trying to avoid a cold it is important to

    • A.

      Eat more fruit and vegetables

    • B.

      Increase your sugar intake

    • C.

      Skip meals

    Correct Answer
    A. Eat more fruit and vegetables
    Explanation
    Eating more fruit and vegetables is important when trying to avoid a cold because they are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support a healthy immune system. These nutrients help strengthen the body's defense against viruses and bacteria, reducing the risk of catching a cold. Additionally, fruits and vegetables provide fiber, which aids in digestion and overall health. Increasing sugar intake or skipping meals can have negative effects on the immune system and overall health, making it less effective in fighting off illnesses.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "If you follow all healthy living strategies you will never get sick" is an overgeneralization. While adopting healthy living strategies can certainly reduce the risk of getting sick, it does not guarantee complete immunity from all illnesses. Factors such as genetics, environmental factors, and exposure to contagious diseases can still lead to illness, even if a person follows a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Explanation
    To prevent passing germs and getting sick, it is important to keep your hands away from your eyes, nose, mouth, and face. These areas are entry points for germs and viruses, and touching them with contaminated hands increases the risk of infection. By avoiding contact with these areas, you can reduce the chances of transferring germs from your hands to your body, helping to maintain good hygiene and overall health.

    doorknob
    mouse
    counter
    Explanation
    To prevent the spread of germs, it is important to regularly disinfect commonly touched surfaces. These surfaces include the desk, keyboard, doorknob, mouse, and counter. Disinfecting these areas helps to kill any bacteria or viruses that may be present, reducing the risk of transmission. Regular disinfection is especially important in shared spaces or high-traffic areas where germs can easily be spread from person to person. By regularly disinfecting these surfaces, the spread of germs can be minimized, promoting a healthier and safer environment.

    Does drinking and smoking increase your chance of getting sick?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      Only if you do it everyday

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Drinking and smoking can increase the chances of getting sick. Both habits weaken the immune system, making the body more vulnerable to infections and diseases. Alcohol impairs the immune system's ability to fight off pathogens, while smoking damages the respiratory system and reduces lung function. These factors increase the risk of developing various illnesses, including respiratory infections, cardiovascular diseases, and certain types of cancer. Therefore, engaging in these habits can indeed increase the likelihood of getting sick.
