Metabolism Trivia Knowledge Quiz! Test

Take this Metabolism knowledge quiz. Metabolism is basically all the chemical reactions that happen within a living organism to keep it alive and ensure the organs are functioning as they should. These reactions are divided into catabolism and anabolism. Whatever we eat is converted into energy through these processes. How can you increase this rate of conversion? This quiz will help you find out some more about the process and what it entails.
