To make refined or bleached 'white flour,' what part of the wheat kernel is removed?

A and B only

Bran makes up the outer layers of the grain. It contains B-vitamins, trace minerals and dietary fiber. It's removed when wheat flour is processed (refined and/or bleached) into white flour. Germ is the part of the plant that sprouts to generate a new plant. It has B-vitamins, trace minerals, and some protein. It's also removed when wheat flour is refined to become white flour, which is purely the endosperm of the wheat kernel.

emoticon For a muscle to get stronger, it has to get bigger.


emoticon FALSE


emoticon The amount of force a muscle can generate depends not just on the size of the muscle fibers but also on the number of fibers that can be activated and used. Each time you challenge your muscles to do more than they usually do, they learn to use more of your existing muscle fibers. Muscle fibers won't start getting bigger until after you reach the point where you're activating most of them--and you can gain a lot of strength before you get to that point.

True or False: Health problems such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension and depression are UNRELATED to the amount and quality of a person's sleep.

False

Studies have found a relationship between the quantity and quality of one's sleep and many health problems. For example, insufficient sleep affects growth hormone secretion that is linked to obesity; as the amount of hormone secretion decreases, the chance for weight gain increases. Blood pressure usually falls during the sleep cycle. However, interrupted sleep can adversely affect this normal decline, leading to hypertension and cardiovascular problems. Research has also shown that insufficient sleep impairs the body's ability to use insulin, which can lead to the onset of diabetes. More and more scientific studies are showing correlations between poor and insufficient sleep and disease. For more details and information about insomnia and sleep problems, visit SparkPeople's Insomnia Health Condition Center.

emoticon Which of the following can increase the risk of getting a migraine while exercising?


Exercising at a high intensity

Quickly increasing your level of exercise intensity

Becoming dehydrated

emoticon All of the above


Regular exercise can help prevent chronic illness, boost your mood and lengthen your lifespan, among a host of other benefits. But while consistent sweat sessions are great for you, they can also trigger head pain if you've increased your workout intensity quickly, worked very intensely or become dehydrated. Overall, regular exercise has been shown to help diminish recurrent headaches, so don't limit your trips to the gym. Instead, keep an eye on your fluid intake, especially when increasing the length or intensity of your sessions.

Milk is (or should be) stored in opaque plastic or cardboard containers, not clear glass, because light can destroy nutrients in the milk. Ultraviolet light, including sunlight, can quickly destroy riboflavin, a nutrient found in milk, for example.
