Cold and flu season is in full swing! To stop germs from spreading, how long should you wash your hands at each session?

20 seconds
The number one way to defend yourself during cold and flu season is to wash your hands, including under the nails and in between fingers for at least 20 seconds with warm, soapy water—and to do so frequently.

This is absolutely false, because the best thing of all that you can do is wear a face mask. Washing your hands is good, but colds and flu often enter through the nose and mouth.

The US imports more cocoa beans than any other country.
BEWARE! emoticon emoticon If you research this question, you will find BOTH answers: True, the US imports the most cocoa beans, AND False, The Netherlands is the top importer. Fact is, I've answered it both ways over the years and ALWAYS gotten it wrong! (Suggestions: refresh the page to get a new question.)

Question
Which conventionally grown fruit tends to be HIGHEST in pesticide residue

I would have got this wrong as I thought Apples.

Answer Strawberries

On checking articles I found two with different answers. One was Peaches and the other Strawberries
I could not see the difference in the two articles

Iron found in animal products is called

Heme iron

Iron is available from foods of both animal (heme iron) and plant (non-heme iron) origin. It is better absorbed from heme iron sources.

This is a very incomplete answer! In the treatment of iron-deficiency anemia, the most commonly prescribed form of iron, ferrous sulfate, is neither of plant or animal origin, but is an inorganic mineral.

I had a question about how long you fast before a lipid panel test. Lately doctors are starting to think that fasting is not necessary which was one of the answers. I decided to choose 9-12 hours and that was the right answer this time. I hope that I can continue to expect Sparkpeople to stay current with medical information. I guess we'll see. What have you heard from your doctor about this?

Drat:

Missed: SparkPeople Most exercisers lose how many cups of fluid (sweat) per hour of moderate exercise? Answer: 4 cups.

Found the following Spark article that says 6 cups or 3 lbs:

According to the American College of Sports Medicine, dehydration is likely to start affecting exercise performance when sweating causes you to lose 2% or more of your normal (hydrated) body weight. That's more than 51 ounces, or a little over 3 pounds, for an "average" person of 160 pounds

This one.

Vitamin D and calcium work hand in hand to fight the osteoporosis often associated with aging. How much vitamin D do most adults need each day?
400-800 IU

Now I did not know what a UI unit was so I looked the question up.
I did not find out but I did find that the answer should have been 2000ui not 400 to 800

Which food naturally contains vitamin D?

Answer: Milk emoticon ( I got this one wrong I said fish - explanation: Vitamin D is found naturally in fish and fish-liver oils. However it is also found in vitamin D fortified milk.)

Milk is fortified with vitamin D. If you do not drink milk, ask your health care professional about supplementation. Note: Most cheese and yogurt products are NOT made with fortified milk.

True or False: Eating chicken soup can help you recover from a cold.

True (missed) I said false which is really the right answer
There is a grain of truth to this practice. Chicken soup won't "cure" your cold, but research shows that it can help loosen nasal mucus and clear up congestion so you breathe a little easier. You can help yourself feel better in no time by following these Self-Care Tips for Sick Days.

I haven't seen any slices that would be 28grams
in most cases over here it is done in 100 grams which means SP does the calculation for you when you weigh it.

By the looks of the question I have 4 serving per meal but my breakfast is normally under 400 calories (that is off of 2000)

That is tricky! I think it's in the terminology; your breakfast bread is a "portion" while experts say a serving would be 1 oz. or 28 gr. Saying that's one slice just depends on the bread!

The question was
A single serving of bread is equal to:

Ok I have 2 slices for breakfast most morning the together the weigh 80 grams or as little as 69.

As the answer was 1oz my two should have been 2oz. (2 oz is about 50 grams)

At this rate I would never have got this one right as 1 oz is 28.3 grams nowhere near my 40 grams, Good fun

The explanation
A single serving of bread is equal to 1 ounce. That's about the size of one small slice, 1/2 a bagel or 1/2 a bun.

I still don't believe this, it doesn't work for everyone and I think it's a trick question because it depends on a lot of factors.

True or False: By adding exercise to your weight loss program, you'll be able to eat more calories and still lose weight.
True. which I got wrong! grrr!

Remember, to lose weight, you need to create a caloric deficit. You can do this by cutting calories from your diet, by exercising more, or by combining both diet and exercise. Because you need to give you body a proper amount of fuel for energy, nutrients, and to ensure weight loss, it can be hard to cut a large amount of calories by dieting alone. By adding exercise, however, you'll be able to eat more and still meet your goals. Just make sure that you account for all the exercise you do when you set-up your SparkPeople program. This way, you'll get an accurate calorie recommendation for you to lose weight at a healthy rate. To learn how your calorie recommendations are determined—and how exercise fits into that equation—check out Calorie Calculations 101.

A 2011 study published in Social Science Quarterly showed that the typical weight gain during the first year of college is just 2.5 to 3.5 pounds and has little to do with higher learning and more to do with becoming a young adult. The not so good news: About 10 percent of freshmen will gain 15 pounds or more during their first year. And that's just the first year. Experts aren't as concerned about these actual pounds as they are about the rate at which students put them on. A 2008 study found that college students gain weight six times faster than the general population. And according to researchers, young adults continue to gain weight (1.5 pounds per year on average) during the four years after they graduate, too. Not all of this can be chalked up to "growing up," though. If left unchecked, the weight gain many experience as young adults can become a serious problem.

Individuals who do not absorb vitamin B-12 properly might have what condition?

Pernicious anemia emoticon

A lack of vitamin B-12 may lead to anemia, fatigue, nerve damage, stomach problems, a smooth tongue, or very sensitive skin. Some people have a medical problem called pernicious anemia in which vitamin B-12 is not absorbed from the intestines properly. They are missing a body chemical called intrinsic factor that comes from the stomach lining. Others have a diseased intestine or have had a large part of their stomachs or intestines removed. These conditions require treatment with vitamin B-12 injections.

How high should you elevate your heart rate during an aerobic (cardio) workout?

Between 60% and 85% emoticon

The recommended heart rate range for aerobic exercise is 60-85% of your maximum heart rate. This range is called the target heart rate (THR) zone. This range is ideal for the general health benefits that come with exercise, and for weight loss. You can use your THR, the "Talk Test" or Perceived Exertion to make sure you're working out in a good intensity level (not too easy, not too hard).

Not so much hard but getting the answer was. I r=was right in that it was 15 minutes but that is the hard part, you can find out how many AU you need but not minutes

How many minutes of sunlight are generally needed per day to stimulate the body's vitamin D production?
15 minutes
Fifteen minutes of sunshine a day, preferably before noon or after 3 p.m., could be enough to stimulate your body’s vitamin D production

Just read a SP article by Liz Noelcke, SparkPeople Contributor where she writes:

"Obviously, showering after a workout is the best option. It cleans the sweat from your body and helps prevent both acne and that post-exercise funk."

This implies that sweat causes acne but the answer to a trivia question about sweating causing acne is false.

Strawberries is the new high pesticide fruit and I have had a half a dozen entries where Apple was the correct answer in the past.

Trev, I got this question not to long ago and 720 was in the list of answers and was, of course, the correct answer. Don't have any idea why it wasn't in the list of answers when you got this question.

In order for exercise to improve your cholesterol levels, it must be:
None of the above

Exercise can increase your HDL (good) levels while lowering your LDL (bad) cholesterol. You'll be happy to know that you don't need to spend countless hours in the gym to achieve the heart-health benefits of getting active. The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of exercise on most days of the week.

Even moderate activity, if done daily, can make a difference. Research shows cholesterol improvements are related to the amount of activity and not to the intensity of the exercise. Even if you lose little weight, exercise can help you improve your cholesterol levels. Heart-healthy changes can occur inside your body before any benefits are seen on the outside.

Although everyone should consult their health care provider before starting an exercise program, in most cases, you won't need medical supervision to exercise safely and effectively.

Oh dear, as far as I can see this is one that SP has got wrong, being from outside the USA I had no idea who or what this would be, so I looked it up. I found the answer in two places as being 720 calories. Here is what SP Trivia had

How many calories are in a bowl of New England Clam Chowder from Panera?
Answers
330 calories
420 calories
1,000 calories
520 calories

Where is the 720? would you take a charnce on the 520?

True or False: The U.S. imports more cocoa beans than any other country. The answer now is False, the Netherlands imports more.

I wanted to check before I answered and I got it wrong. I found a blog answer I had put in back in 2012 and back then the answer was true and Sparkpeople updated the answer.

The question
Those who eat chocolate live longer than those who don't.

I have got this wrong by answering both true and false.

Looking it up there has been only one study and they say it is true

Everywhere else say it is has not been proven

I hate those Trev.

I just read an article extolling the virtue of Coconut Oil and it was in the list of the foods that were answers for Which food lowers cholesterol. I think the jury is still out on coconut oil but the trivia question is back before some studies were made so the right answer is Peanut butter. Reduced fat Peanut butter still has some hydrogenated oils in it giving it some trans fat so the right answer really should be Natural Peanut butter

Then they asked how many calories in a bowl of Clam chowder from Panera and had the calorie amount for both a cup and a bowl in the list. Have to read really carefully.

Finally I got the question that asks how long should stretch for the best results. Most trainers say 5-10 seconds but Spark's answer is 15-30. The key I guess is which gives the best results. They are pretty tricky!

More confusion, two answers to this question. As it says it will BUT might Not be enough. Both answers are correct but they say false

True or False: Simply walking for 15 minutes per day (without changing your diet) can prevent weight gain.

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.

Well it might not be but it might also do the trick

Confusing at least

True or False: Aerobic exercise decreases HDL cholesterol.
False
HDL cholesterol is the "good" cholesterol. Aerobic exercise increases HDL (good) cholesterol and decreases LDL (bad) cholesterol.

How many calories does a single gram of alcohol contain?
7 calories
One gram of fat contains 9 calories, but alcohol is not a nutrient because it cannot be used in the body to promote growth, maintenance, or repair. It is a toxin that is broken down as an energy (calorie) source and can be converted to fat.

This really doesn't explain the 7

True or False: Caffeine has been found to aid significantly in weight loss.
False
Because caffeine is a stimulant, it does speed up metabolism, but the effect is only minimal and very short term. Clinical research does not show a significant weight loss with the use of caffeine-containing supplements. Therefore, save your money and leave those supplements (which can contain up to 300 mg of caffeine per dose) on the store shelf.

This is one of these question that really has two answers

Beta-carotene is a form of which vitamin?
Vitamin A
Your body can get vitamin A in two forms: retinols and beta-carotene. Retinols are found in foods that come from animals such as meat, milk fortified with A, fish oil and eggs. Bete-carotene is found in red, yellow, and orange vegetables and fruits, and many dark-green leafy vegetables

True or False: Eating chicken soup can help you recover from a cold. They say True then the explanation says this:There is a grain of truth to this practice. Chicken soup won't emoticon cure emoticon your cold, but research shows that it can help loosen nasal mucus and clear up congestion so you breathe a little easier. You can help yourself feel better in no time by following these Self-Care Tips for Sick Days. Sounds like it will help with the symptoms but no recovery.

If you don't have enough thyroid hormone, your body processes slow down. That means your body makes less energy, and your metabolism becomes sluggish.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste or try to control...
