True or False: All types of chocolate provide health benefits.
False
Research suggests that the consumption of chocolate may help prevent high blood pressure, improve heart health, and provide a bounty of antioxidants. But all chocolate is not created equal, and not all types of chocolate offer these health benefits.

How many nutrients are lost when whole grains are refined into white flour?
17
When grains are processed and refined, the bran and germ are removed, leaving behind the white endosperm. During this process, grains become less nutritious, losing 25% of their original protein content and 17 other essential nutrients. While manufacturers then "enrich" the flour with some vitamins and minerals, a naturally whole grain is still a healthier choice. Compared to refined grains (white bread, white rice, white flour), whole grains pack more protein, fiber, vitamins (B vitamins and vitamin E), and minerals (magnesium and iron), as well as some antioxidants not found in other foods.

What affects flexibility?

All of these factors affect your ability to stretch: Muscle connective tissues have a natural tendency to shorten with aging, resulting in tighter muscles. Several studies have shown that females tend to be more flexible than males. Active people tend to be more flexible than inactive people. An increase in muscle temperature results in a decrease of muscular resistance, which enhances your ability to stretch.

All of the following statements about perimenopause are true EXCEPT which one?
A woman is usually infertile during this time
Perimenopause occurs before menopause and lasts about three to five years. Although a woman can experience many different menopausal symptoms during this time, that doesn’t necessarily mean she is infertile. Every woman is considered "fertile" until she has experienced a year or more of absent periods, and confirmed this with her doctor. Visit SparkPeople’s Menopause Condition Center to learn more.

True or False: Obesity may prevent the immune system from functioning properly.
True
Research performed by scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine has shown that obesity prevents the immune system from functioning properly, increasing its vulnerability to infection. In the study, obese mice were 50 percent less capable of killing the flu virus, compared to lean mice. The researchers believe that the same holds true in humans. To find out how many calories you need to maintain or lose weight, refer to your customized Nutrition Tracker.

Which of the following can help reduce the length and severity of colds and flu?
A, B, and C only
There is no cure for the common cold or flu. But vitamin-rich fruits and veggies (dark green, red and yellow ones) can boost your body's resistance. So can adequate rest and plenty of fluids—especially water, which moistens mucous membranes and helps them fight off intruding viruses. Taking hot baths can be relaxing and soothe those flu aches, but it's not a good idea when you have a fever. Wondering about whether or not you can exercise when you're sick? Click here to find out.

Vegans need to take supplemental vitamin B-12.
True
Vegans, also known as strict vegetarians, omit all meat and animal products (eggs, dairy, etc.) from their diets. Because vitamin B-12 only occurs naturally in animal foods like meat, dairy and eggs, vegans must supplement their B-12 intake with pill supplements or foods that have been fortified with vitamin B-12.

Strength training builds stronger muscles, but what else does it help strengthen?

Tendons, Ligaments, Bones, Joints

Explanation
Regular strength training increases the size and strength of the muscle fibers. It also strengthens the tendons, ligaments, and bones. All of these changes have a positive impact on your physical fitness, appearance, and metabolism, while reducing the risk of injury and decreasing joint and muscle pain.

When exercising with high blood pressure, what is the best advice to follow?
All of the above
When you have high blood pressure, listening to your body is important. Always talk to your doctor first. Your top priority is to neutralize the threat of blood pressure before you push yourself toward more dramatic exercise goals. Frequency (number of exercise sessions per week) is more important than intensity. For more detail and safety precautions, read Exercising with High Blood Pressure before you get started.

Approximately 64% of the 5 to 6 grams of fat in one large egg is unsaturated fat. Most of this fat is found in the yolk, leaving the egg white virtually fat free. Just one whole egg will give you almost 1 gram of heart-healthy linoleic acid.

Which of the following best describes calisthenics?.
Body weight exercises
Calisthenics are exercises that use your own body weight in lieu of outside or added resistance. You can use the weight of your own body to develop muscle, but using body weight alone is less effective for developing larger muscles and greater strength. However, calisthenics adequately improve general muscular fitness and are sufficient to improve muscle tone and maintain one’s current level of muscular strength. Examples include: pushups, crunches, dips, pull ups, lunges, and squats, just to name a few.

True or False: There are many precautions you can take as an adult to prevent allergies from developing.
False

There are no controllable risk factors for adults who wish to decrease their risk of developing allergies, because allergy development isn't related to lifestyle habits. Intervention needs to occur early--during infancy and childhood. .

True or False: Ramping up your B-12 and folate (folic acid) intake can help cure a bad mood.
.True
Scientists believe that B-12 and folate help the body produce a neurotransmitter called serotonin—a known mood stabilizer. Shellfish, fortified cereal, oatmeal, wheat germ, and vegetables are some of the many foods rich in these nutrients.

True or False: Cold and flu viruses can live on surfaces like doorknobs.
True
When a person sneezes or coughs, droplets that contain the virus can fly into the air. When you inhale the air-born droplets, you can catch a cold. But these viruses can live on surfaces and spread that way too. That's why hand washing and disinfecting communal surfaces are important practices year-round

Which of the following relaxation techniques will NOT help you get a better night's sleep?
Watching TV
Reading a book, listening to some soft music, journaling, or writing a letter are all great ways to shut down your mind at night. Don't watch television or use the computer, as the bright screens will actually stimulate your brain more, causing you to stay alert.

Which of the following ingredients is a sign that a food product is made with 100% whole wheat?
None of the above
o make sure you are getting 100% whole wheat bread, look at the ingredients list—not the front of the package. "Whole wheat flour" or "100% whole wheat flour" should be the first ingredient and the only flour listed. Don't fall for deceitful terms such as "wheat flour," "unbleached wheat flour," "multigrain," "enriched," or "stone-ground wheat flour." These are just sneaky ways of saying refined white flour.

True or False: HDL cholesterol is the healthy kind.
True
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.

How many cups of popcorn does a large tub from a movie theatre usually contain?
20 cups missed
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.

True or False: Skipping the cool down at the end of your workout can lead to dizziness and/or faintness.
True
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. Learn how to Cool Down properly.

True or False: The key to developing muscle strength is to create tension within a muscle.
True
The key to developing strength is creating tension within a muscle (or group of muscles). This is known as the tension principle. Tension is created by resistance. Resistance can come from weights (like dumbbells), specially-designed strength training machines, resistance bands, or the weight of your own body.
