    Correct Answer
    A. Yes

    Does genetics play a role in the disease?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Genetics can indeed play a role in the development and progression of certain diseases. Many diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, have a genetic component. Genetic variations or mutations can increase the risk of developing these diseases. Additionally, some diseases are directly caused by specific genetic mutations. Understanding the genetic basis of diseases can help in identifying individuals at higher risk and developing targeted treatments. Therefore, it is accurate to say that genetics plays a role in the disease.

    Coronary Heart Disease is when a waxy substance of _____  builds up within the coronary arteries

    • A.

      Blood

    • B.

      Fat

    • C.

      Plaque

    • D.

      Potatoes

    Correct Answer
    C. Plaque
    Explanation
    Coronary Heart Disease occurs when a waxy substance called plaque builds up within the coronary arteries. Plaque is made up of cholesterol, fat, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. Over time, this plaque can harden and narrow the arteries, reducing blood flow to the heart muscle. This can lead to chest pain (angina), shortness of breath, and even heart attacks. Therefore, the correct answer is "plaque".

      Diabetes

    • B.

      Hypertension

    • C.

      Smoking

    • D.

      Sport

    Correct Answer
    D. Sport
    Explanation
    Engaging in regular physical activity, such as participating in sports, is known to have a positive impact on cardiovascular health and can help reduce the risk of developing Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). On the other hand, diabetes, hypertension, and smoking are all risk factors that can increase the chances of developing CHD. Therefore, the correct answer is "Sport" as it is not a way to increase the chances of Coronary Heart Disease.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. By having the clots removed by surgery
    B. Medication Prescribed
    D. Continually exercising
    Explanation
    Coronary Heart Disease can be treated through a combination of methods. Surgery can be performed to remove clots that may be causing blockages in the arteries. Medication can also be prescribed to manage symptoms and prevent further complications. Additionally, continually exercising is important as it helps improve cardiovascular health and reduces the risk of developing or worsening heart disease. However, eating fatty foods is not a recommended treatment for coronary heart disease as it can contribute to the buildup of plaque in the arteries.
