    • A.

      Energy intakes

    • B.

      Cholesterol intakes

    • C.

      Saturated fat intakes

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Energy intakes
    B. Cholesterol intakes
    C. Saturated fat intakes
    Explanation
    Vegetarians usually have lower energy intakes, cholesterol intakes, and saturated fat intakes compared to non-vegetarians. This is because a vegetarian diet typically consists of plant-based foods that are generally lower in calories and saturated fats. Additionally, animal products such as meat, dairy, and eggs are the main sources of dietary cholesterol, which is absent in a vegetarian diet. By avoiding these foods, vegetarians tend to have lower cholesterol levels. Overall, a vegetarian diet can be beneficial for reducing energy intake, cholesterol intake, and saturated fat intake.

    Which form of iron is better absorbed?

    • A.

      Haem

    • B.

      Non-haem

    • C.

      They are both absorbed the same

    Correct Answer
    A. Haem
    Explanation
    Haem iron is better absorbed by the body compared to non-haem iron. This is because haem iron is derived from animal sources and is more readily absorbed by the small intestine. Non-haem iron, on the other hand, is derived from plant sources and is less easily absorbed. The body's ability to absorb haem iron is enhanced by factors such as vitamin C, while non-haem iron absorption can be hindered by substances like phytates and tannins present in certain foods. Therefore, haem iron is considered to be more bioavailable and efficient in meeting the body's iron needs.

    The given statement is true because studies have shown that individuals who follow a vegetarian diet tend to have lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels compared to those who consume a non-vegetarian diet. This could be attributed to the fact that plant-based diets are typically lower in saturated fats and cholesterol, which are known to contribute to high blood pressure. Additionally, vegetarian diets are often rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes, which are high in nutrients like potassium and fiber that help regulate blood pressure.
