Activity 0 Nutrition To promote health Reduce the risk of chronic diseases to prevent de ciency diseases like red meatcortizol in amationalzheimer39s performance To meet the nutrient requirements of the body To prevent an excessive amount of nutrients causing toxicity vit A easily reached 0 Physical Activity To preventreduce chronic disease risk To understand FIT type of activity To know the nutrient needs of a physically active person 0 Leading causes of death 1Heart disease CVD 2 cancer 3chronic lower respiratory diseases and 4Stroke these 4 account for 23 of ALL adult deaths in the US

Vitamin C 0 These are fragile and easily destroyed by cooking They are more readily excreted 0 Minerals are inorganic and micronutrients micronutrients needed in small amounts extracellular and intercellular fuild balance calcium phosphorous magnesium needed for bones teeth extracellular minerals maintain blood volume sodium needed for proper nerve transmission soak veg in water to reduce 0 Functions needed for chemical reactions uid balance in bones and teeth nerve synapses etc Cannot be destroyed by heat They will leach into the water during cooking boiling or soaking in water Calcium and phosphorous major o 16 essential minerals Major vs trace minerals Water composes about 5070 water 0 Functions chemical reactions transport of oxygen and nutrients to cells temperature regulation Phytochemicals quotplantbased chemicalsquot these are plant components in plant foods act as antioxidants 0 Over 1000 have been found carotenoids icopen in pomegranates blueberries 0 Although they aren t essential nutrients they can help protect from chronic disease antioxidants 0 These are physiologically active compounds and they may protect from heart disease cancer etc Examples
