When taken in large amounts exceeding UL values along with blood thinners and aspirin, ________________ can interfere with blood clotting.
Which vitamin helps reactions break down glucose, make RNA and DNA, or produce energy rich molecules that power protein synthesis?
resting energy expenditure
Most of our energy is typically expended on basic body functions that account for 60 to 75% of total energy expenditure; this energy use is called
15 to 30
Energy expended on physical activity such as work, exercise, and all daily movement accounts for __________% of total energy expenditure.
thermic effect of food
The energy used to digest, absorb, and metabolize energy yielding foodstuffs is called
age, physical activity level,height and weight
Which of the following is used to help determine estimated energy expenditure (EER)?
A pattern of fat being predominantly distributed around the hips and thighs, more common in women, is known as
If a person is said to suffer from ______, this means his or her fat tissue is likely to have bigger fat cells, and more of them
___ is a risk factor for which of the following chronic diseases, heart disease, diabetes and cancer?

If the diet does not supply enough ___ ___, edema will occur because ___ ___ attract fluid from cells to the capillaries

Cholesterol absorption in the small intestine declines when the intestine contains
controlling blood pressure
To reduce the risk of cancer, the American Cancer Society recommends all of the following except
recommend fluid intake
Fever, coughing, rapid breathing, and water nasal secretions all increase water loss significantly, making your body dehydrated.
Fatty plaque accumulates where arteries are damaged, making it mor difficult for the heart to pump blood effectively through the arteries, and decreasing the amount of nutrients delivered throughout the body.
stroke and heart attack
Blood clots tend to form at sites of artery damage, further limiting blood flow throughout the body. The clots can break loose and travel to the brain or the heart, blocking the flow of blood to that organ, and causing the stroke or heart attack.
inhibits bacterial activity, and shifts the balance toward depositing minerals. This action in teeth helps counter normal mineral loss, a loss that acid-forming bacteria accelerate.
excess fat soluble vitamins
acccumalate in the liver and fatty tissue. The body does not store most water-soluble vitamins in appreciable amounts. the kidneys filter out most water-soluble vitamin and excrete them in the urine.
When you enter a dark room, not only do your eyes dilate, but they also produce rhodopsin to increase their sensitivity to light. The speed of adjusting to dim light is related directly to the amount of vitamin A available to regenerate rhodopsin.
When red blood cell precursors in the bone marrow cannot form new DNA, they cannot divide normally. These precursor cells continue to grow, and become large, fragile, immature cells called megaloblasts. Megaloblasts displace RBC , resulting in ____ ____.
Dietary fat from the oil or salad dressing carry fat soluble substances, such as lycopene, through the digestine process, improving intestinal absorption.
