    It takes about ______ for nutrients to be broken down and begin entering the bloodstream following a meal.

    • A.

      Less than an hour

    • B.

      An hour or more

    • C.

      More than two hours

    Correct Answer
    B. An hour or more
    Explanation
    After a meal, the process of digestion begins in the stomach and continues in the small intestine. The food is broken down into smaller molecules, including nutrients, through the action of enzymes. These nutrients are then absorbed into the bloodstream through the walls of the small intestine. This entire process can take varying amounts of time depending on factors such as the composition of the meal and individual metabolism. Therefore, it is possible for nutrients to start entering the bloodstream within an hour, but it can also take longer, hence the answer "an hour or more".

    Insulin is a very powerful hormone with a major role in weight control, and it is for this reason it is known as the 'fat hormone'.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Insulin plays a crucial role in weight control as it regulates the storage and utilization of glucose in the body. When insulin levels are high, it promotes the storage of excess glucose as fat, leading to weight gain. Additionally, insulin inhibits the breakdown of fat, further contributing to its reputation as the "fat hormone." Therefore, it is accurate to refer to insulin as the "fat hormone" due to its significant impact on weight control.

    IgG stands for __________.

    • A.

      Immunoglobulin (type E)

    • B.

      Immunoglobulin (type G)

    • C.

      Immunoglobulin (type M)

    Correct Answer
    B. Immunoglobulin (type G)
    Explanation
    IgG stands for Immunoglobulin (type G). Immunoglobulins are antibodies produced by the immune system to help fight off infections and diseases. There are different types of immunoglobulins, including IgE, IgG, and IgM. IgG is the most abundant type of immunoglobulin in the body and is involved in long-term immunity. It plays a crucial role in recognizing and neutralizing pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses, and is also responsible for providing passive immunity to newborns through the placenta.

    The gastrointestinal system is basically a hollow tube approximately 4.5m.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the gastrointestinal system refers to the organs involved in the digestion and absorption of food, and it is indeed a hollow tube that extends approximately 4.5 meters in length. This tube includes organs such as the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine, which are all connected to form a continuous pathway for food to travel through.

    When glucose is obtained from our food, some of it is used as fuel and some is stored in the form of glycogen in the liver as a short-term reservoir of nutrients.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Glucose obtained from our food is indeed used as fuel for our body's energy needs. Additionally, some of the glucose is stored in the liver as glycogen. This glycogen serves as a short-term reservoir of nutrients that can be readily accessed when our body needs an extra supply of glucose. Therefore, the statement is true.

  • 8. 

    An antibody is a specialised protein produced by the body’s immune system to fight foreign bodies such as viruses, bacteria and toxins.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An antibody is indeed a specialized protein that is produced by the body's immune system to combat foreign bodies like viruses, bacteria, and toxins. It recognizes and binds to specific antigens on these foreign substances, marking them for destruction by other immune cells. This immune response is crucial in defending the body against infections and maintaining overall health.
