Snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea.
True emoticon
Although snoring may be harmless for most people, it can be a symptom of a sleep apnea (especially if it is accompanied by severe daytime sleepiness). Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing that prevent air from flowing into or out of a sleeping person’s airways. People with sleep apnea awaken frequently during the night gasping for breath. Snoring on a frequent or regular basis has also been directly associated with high blood pressure.

What is Acai?
A berry from Brazil emoticon
Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) is a berry from Brazil that's been widely touted in the United States for its health-enhancing powers. In addition to removing toxins and increasing energy, the alleged benefits include burning fat, reducing food cravings, and boosting metabolism. Typically the berry is sold in the form of juice (for as much as $40 a bottle), capsules, or powder. What supposedly makes acai berries so beneficial is their high levels of antioxidants, which help fight harmful free radicals.

If you're not active or exercising after eating a meal or snack, the food you eat will turn into body fat.
False emoticon
Your body is constantly burning calories to perform physiological functions that keep your body alive and healthy (digestion, respiration, brain activity, etc.), so your body needs fuel from food and uses it all day long, even if you're not physically active. This is called your Resting Metabolic Rate, and it "runs" even when you're asleep.

Your body needs cholesterol to be healthy.
True emoticon
Cholesterol is a building block of body cells and hormones. It makes up 50 percent of your nervous system, and is necessary for metabolism. In moderate amounts, it is essential to good health. But the dangers of high cholesterol, including artery blockage and heart disease, are well-documented. Other studies suggest that very low cholesterol levels can also be harmful and dangerous. The key seems to be making sure your body has enough--but not too much.

About ____% of the calories you consume post-workout should come from carbohydrates. 60% emoticon
Roughly 60% of the calories you eat at this time should come from carbohydrates. Contrary to popular belief, your body needs more carbohydrates than protein after a workout, to replace the muscle fuel (glycogen) you used up and to prepare for your next exercise session.

The nutrient content of an egg depends mostly on whether or not the eggs come from free range chickens.
False emoticon
The terms "free-range," "vegetarian-fed" and "organic" are all on egg cartons these days. While free-range does mean the chicken is not caged, it does not necessarily mean that the chicken roams outdoors (it only has access to open space at some point each day). A chicken's feed is what affects the nutritional quality of its eggs. The label "vegetarian-fed" ensure no animal by-products are fed to the chickens laying the eggs, and "organic" means the chicken's feed is organic.

Heart disease is the result of a combination of uncontrollable and controllable risk factors.
True emoticon
Many people understand that there is a connection between poor diet, lack of exercise and the development of heart disease. But your risk of developing cardiovascular disease is the result of a combination of many risk factors. There are two main categories of risks that contribute to heart disease--those that you can't change (uncontrollable risks), and those that you can (controllable risks).

What might happen if you don't properly cool down after exercise?
All of the above emoticon
The purpose of the cool down is to slowly decrease the heart rate and the overall metabolism previously elevated during exercise. When exercise ends abruptly, your blood pressure drops and can cause dizziness or fainting. A proper cool-down prevents the sudden pooling of blood (collection of blood in one place) and re-circulates the blood back to the heart, skeletal muscles and brain. This 10-15 minute phase of your workout helps prevent muscle stiffness or soreness.

HDL cholesterol is the healthy kind.
True emoticon
HDL (High Density Lipoprotein) is the good, healthy cholesterol. HDL picks up and carries excess cholesterol away from artery walls and brings it back to the liver for processing and removal. You want this number to be high (at least 60 mg/dL)to protect your heart. Levels too low (less than 40 mg/dL) are bad for your health, increasing your risk for heart disease.

With each step you take, how much force do your knees and hips experience? 2-4 times your body weight emoticon
Every time you take a step, the force on your knees and hips equals two to three times your body weight! Climbing down steps will increase the pressure on your knees and hips by six-fold—that's 900 pounds of pressure for a person who weights just 150 pounds. Your risk of developing osteoarthritis generally increases with the amount of weight that your joints have to bear. Once osteoarthritis has developed, being overweight exacerbates the condition.

Women should lift light weights for more repetitions to avoid bulking up.
False emoticon
While on a weight lifting program, the right hormones (testosterone) are necessary in order to bulk up. Women’s testosterone levels are much lower than men’s, so in most cases, they are not capable of building large muscles. In fact, since muscle takes up less room than fat, women tend to lose inches when they strength train. So in addition to the physical benefits (increased metabolism, decreased risk of osteoporosis, increased strength), strength training will help you slim down too! Women, in fact, are more likely to tone up from strength training rather than bulk up. Research shows that women can add up to 30% lean muscle and end up looking thinner, feeling stronger and being firmer. No matter how many repetitions you do, you should be lifting a challenging weight and feel muscle fatigue by the end of each set

As long as you're working hard, you don't need to change your workout routine.

Incorporate variation into each workout. Variety is critical because your muscles become very efficient at the exercises they are accustomed to doing. Switching things up or doing something radically different during each workout session is more challenging to your muscles. This concept should be applied to both aerobic exercise and strength training.

An individual who always does the same exercises will usually plateau sooner than someone who continually makes changes. If you don’t feel comfortable doing a different workout each time you hit the gym, try to change your exercise routine at least every 6-8 weeks.

Minerals are very stable. They cannot be destroyed by light, water, heat or food handling processes. In fact, the little bit of ash that remains when a food is completely burned is its mineral content!

Wheat bran, whole grains, fruits and vegetables are good sources of which type of fiber?
Insoluble emoticon
Insoluble fiber is found in foods like wheat bran, whole grains and all vegetables and fruits. It is often called roughage or bulk because it keeps the digestive system running smoothly. This helps with constipation, hemorrhoids, and other digestive problems. It may help to prevent some types of cancer.

Hemp seeds contain healthy Omega-3 fatty acids
True emoticon
Hemp seeds are highly nutritious, containing essential fatty acids, amino acids, and minerals. About a third of the weight of the seed is made up of oil, and most of that oil is the healthy variety: ALA (alpha-linoleic acid, a type of Omega-3 fat) and linoleic acid. These essential fatty acids (EFA's for short) can benefit your health in many ways.

How many cups of popcorn does a large tub from a movie theatre usually contain?
20 cups emoticon
On average, a large popcorn (which contains 20 cups) boasts a mind-boggling 100 grams of fat—the equivalent of more than six fast food hamburgers. With about 1,300 calories, that large popcorn packs almost a full day’s supply of calories for the average dieter.

The breed of chicken determines the color of the eggshell but not the nutrients. Brown eggs tend to cost more because it takes more feed for the chickens to produce the slightly larger eggs.

What symptoms might indicate you have the flu as opposed to a cold?
All of the above emoticon
Sometimes it's hard to tell whether the symptoms you're exhibiting indicate a cold or the flu. But in general, all of the characteristics above indicate the flu. Colds are characterized by nasal congestion, coughing, sneezing and sometimes a low-grade fever (under 100 degrees Fahrenheit). While a cold comes on gradually and mildly, the flu arises suddenly. The flu can cause cold-like symptoms like nasal and chest congestion, but it also results headaches, overall body aches, a high, persistent fever (102-104 degrees F), and exhaustion. It can take several weeks to recover from the flu.

Walking alone might not be enough to prevent weight gain. Researchers from the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center say that simply walking for 15 minutes (or about 2,000 steps) and eating a couple fewer bites of food can help you prevent future weight gain.

Another study found that women who skipped breakfast made up for it by eating more throughout the day.

Your body needs sodium.

Sodium is found mainly in blood plasma and in the fluids outside the body cells. It helps regulate the movement of body fluids in and out of the body cells. Sodium helps your muscles and heart to relax. It is involved in the transmission of nerve impulses and helps to regulate blood pressure.

What is the best way to prevent the flu?
Get a flu shot emoticon
Many doctors and health experts agree that vaccination (the flu shot) is the best way to avoid the flu. Talk to your doctor about whether or not you're a good candidate for flu vaccination. According to the National Sleep Foundation, lack of sleep can impair the effectiveness of the flu shot, so make sure you are well rested and caught up on any missed sleep before you get a vaccination.

Wearing a heart rate monitor is the best way a person with high blood pressure can measure their exercise intensity.

Measuring heart rate is NOT a safe or effective way to measure exercise intensity if you have high blood pressure.
