Diet And Nutrition Advanced - Qp3 - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Symptoms of both protozoa and worms include: (Select three)

    • A.

      Bloating and flatulence

    • B.

      Weight gain

    • C.

      Abdominal cramps

    • D.

      Mild diarrhoea

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Bloating and flatulence
    C. Abdominal cramps
    D. Mild diarrhoea
    Explanation
    The correct answer is bloating and flatulence, abdominal cramps, and mild diarrhea. These symptoms are commonly associated with both protozoa and worm infections. Bloating and flatulence occur due to the release of gas in the digestive system caused by the presence of parasites. Abdominal cramps are a result of the parasites irritating the intestinal lining. Mild diarrhea can occur as a result of inflammation and disruption of the normal digestive process caused by the parasites. Weight gain is not typically associated with these infections, so it is not included in the correct answer.

  • 2. 

    ______ percent of people who lose weight by reducing calories by whatever method end up regaining the weight lost and putting on more for good measure.

    • A.

      95 -97

    • B.

      95 -98

    • C.

      95 - 99

    Correct Answer
    B. 95 -98
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 95-98. This range indicates that a significant majority of people who lose weight by reducing calories end up regaining the weight lost and even putting on additional weight. This suggests that long-term weight loss maintenance is challenging for most individuals, highlighting the importance of sustainable and healthy lifestyle changes rather than short-term diets or calorie restriction alone.

    When we diet by cutting calories or skipping meals, we crave food.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When we diet by cutting calories or skipping meals, our body goes into a state of deprivation, causing a decrease in blood sugar levels. This drop in blood sugar triggers hunger signals in the brain, leading to cravings for food. Therefore, it is true that when we diet in this manner, we often experience cravings for food.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that while refined sugar may have a high glycemic index, it is not the primary cause of obesity and chronic disease in society. This implies that there are other factors contributing to these health issues.

    Human intestinal parasites are either two-celled parasites known as protozoa, or intestinal worms that inhabit the small or large intestine.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because human intestinal parasites can be either two-celled parasites known as protozoa or intestinal worms. The statement incorrectly suggests that all human intestinal parasites are either protozoa or worms that inhabit the small or large intestine, when in fact there are other types of parasites as well.

    Antioxidants are substances that block or mop up the free radicals and reduce damage to cells and tissues in the body.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Antioxidants are compounds that help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause oxidative stress and damage to cells and tissues in the body. Antioxidants work by neutralizing these free radicals, reducing their harmful effects and promoting overall health and well-being. Therefore, the statement that antioxidants block or mop up free radicals and reduce damage to cells and tissues in the body is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement in the question is not accurate. While photochemicals are compounds found in plants that can have various health benefits, it is incorrect to state that they prevent cancer, protect against aging and heart disease, and boost the immune system. While some photochemicals may have antioxidant properties and contribute to overall health, their effects on specific diseases and conditions vary and are still being studied. Therefore, the given answer, False, is correct.
