Sugeyson Anpalagan Biology TITLE: A man, who is 40 years of age, living in the UK. He doesn't do any exercise, doesn't have a healthy diet and eats lots of fatty foods. He drinks, smokes and suffers from high blood pressure. At the age of 40, people might have some serious health problems. So we can expect this person as well to have some health problems. Disease is present in the body when part of the body doesn't work properly. The body works properly when a person has a healthy balanced diet and does physical activities, but looking at the person I'm talking about, he doesn't have a healthy diet and he doesn't do any exercises except usual activities, so I expect that he would have some health problems. He normally "smokes and drinks", these words tell that he would have some diseases due to smoking and drinking that leads to death. He also suffers from high blood pressure, because of the fatty foods. ...read more.


The fatty deposits (atheroma) may block the vessels or may cause blood clots. This stops the blood flow to the heart muscle, so oxygen supply is reduced therefore heart stops contracting and heart attack occurs. This is an important disadvantage that may cause death any time. He may also have tiredness. Fat is also a reason for high blood pressure. Mainly he must avoid eating too much fat foods by reducing day by day. He must stop eating margarine, dairy products and some foods that contain saturated fats. One day he will be away from too much fat if so. Exercise is also a way to reduce fatty deposits. (6, 7 & 8) DRINKING Drinking is usual in the UK as smoking. People (drinkers) know that it will lead to health problems but still they don't stop drinking. They became addictive to alcohol. Over drinking of alcohol is a major line to cause liver problems such as cancer and liver cirrhosis, where the liver stops to function properly. ...read more.


(1a, 1b, 1c & 1d / 3, 4 & 7) From this research I can say that there are a lot of chances to get diseases as I described, so he must take care of it and maintain his body. He should seek a special doctor to get some advice to have a balanced diet and to be a healthy man and also he must reduce drinking and smoking, therefore he can be a healthy man.
