Diet And Nutrition Advanced - Qp1 - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Gene expression is also known as epigenetics.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Gene expression refers to the process by which information from a gene is used to create a functional product, such as a protein. Epigenetics, on the other hand, refers to the study of changes in gene expression or cellular phenotype that do not involve alterations to the underlying DNA sequence. While gene expression is a component of epigenetics, it is not synonymous with it. Therefore, the statement that gene expression is also known as epigenetics is false.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Dermatitis
    B. Gastrointestinal disorders
    D. Chronic fatigue
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes dermatitis, gastrointestinal disorders, and chronic fatigue. These diseases are commonly associated with modern lifestyles and environmental factors. Dermatitis refers to inflammation of the skin, often caused by allergies or irritants found in modern products. Gastrointestinal disorders encompass a range of conditions affecting the digestive system, such as irritable bowel syndrome or acid reflux, which can be influenced by diet and stress. Chronic fatigue refers to persistent and debilitating tiredness, often associated with high-stress levels and a sedentary lifestyle. These three diseases are examples of health issues that have become more prevalent in modern society.

  • 3. 

    Carbohydrates should be the first priority in any diet.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because while carbohydrates are an important part of a balanced diet, they should not necessarily be the first priority. A healthy diet should include a variety of nutrients, including proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals. It is important to have a balanced intake of all these nutrients to maintain overall health and well-being. Prioritizing carbohydrates over other nutrients may lead to an imbalance in the diet and can have negative effects on health.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Fat has little or no effect on insulin production, and your body will burn dietary fat as well as your stored fat as fuel.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Fat has little or no effect on insulin production because insulin is primarily released in response to carbohydrates, not fat. When you consume dietary fat, your body can use it as a source of energy alongside stored fat. This means that fat can be burned as fuel by the body, supporting the statement that your body will burn both dietary fat and stored fat for energy. Therefore, the answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The chemical imbalances and food addictions that result from an unsuitable diet can take a hold on the body as powerfully as heroine, alcohol and nicotine addictions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that chemical imbalances and food addictions caused by an unsuitable diet can have a strong grip on the body, similar to the addictive nature of substances like heroin, alcohol, and nicotine. This implies that the effects of an unsuitable diet can be just as powerful and difficult to overcome as traditional addictions. Therefore, the answer "True" indicates that the statement is accurate in describing the potential impact of an unsuitable diet on the body.

  • 6. 

    A combination of cutting calories, reducing carbs and increasing exercise as a weight loss strategy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that a combination of cutting calories, reducing carbs, and increasing exercise is an effective strategy for weight loss. This implies that by consuming fewer calories, limiting carbohydrate intake, and incorporating physical activity, individuals can create a calorie deficit and promote weight loss. Therefore, the answer "True" indicates that this weight loss strategy is believed to be effective.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Fruit is a healthier form of sugar, but it is still sugar and will stimulate the production of insulin.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement correctly states that fruit, although a healthier form of sugar compared to processed sugars, still contains sugar and will stimulate the production of insulin. This is because fruits contain natural sugars, such as fructose, which can raise blood sugar levels and trigger the release of insulin to regulate it. Therefore, the statement is true as it highlights the fact that even though fruit is a healthier choice, it still affects insulin production.
