1. Janine and Mitchell were talking about carbohydrates and proteins. Proteins are large and complex molecules that play many roles in the body. Our body contains many cells that are responsible for a specific job. Proteins do most of the work in cells that are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body 's tissues and organs. In each cell there is a lot of proteins that work together like a machine to run each cell, just like the engine in a car proteins look different and they all have different tasks that allow the engine to run. Proteins are made of amino acids that are attached to one another in a long chain. Proteins are needed for mechanical support(a fibrous protein), and also needed for immune…show more content…
2. The nervous system has a structural unit called the neurone, which is a cell in its cytoplasm containing a lot of mitochondria. Neurone produces the energy by cellular respiration and uses glucose as a substratum. Janine is not right because it doesn 't get you mad you can be without carbohydrates but you do get really tired. 3. Janine was wrong because studies have said that there is no evidence that supports the idea that if you intake to much protein it can cause kidney damage. Proteins do not have no negative impact on kidneys. The metabolism consist of the constructive phase and the destructive phase, in which complex materials are broken down. Transformation of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in food to energy, are parts of the metabolism. 4. Calories are units by which energy is measured. Energy is the capacity to do work. The energy in food is chemical energy. The body can convert the chemical energy to mechanical, electrical, and heat energy. A calorie free energy drink would be misleading because calories is what they use to measure the units of energy needed. Calories is the energy in the energy drink and if it has no calories then it would have no energy, which would not be considered an energy drink anymore. 5. The substances that supply energy to the human body would be organic nutrients that include carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and vitamins. Pg.4 1. Obesity and overweight are about the same thing. They are both
