Introduction

Ch. 10 Food and Diets [?????] (Notes) HK people's diet (lunch or dinner at foodshop) --> too much salt, fats (causes coronary heart disease), energy/sugar (snack eg. soft drink/chocolates), food additives (eg. artificial pigments); NOT enough vitamin, dietary fibre. [??????????????, ???????(??????????)???/? (?? eg. ??/???)?????? (eg. ????); ??????(?????C)? ????] Mode of nutrition (human): heterotrophic nutrition (consume organic food); the organism: heterotroph [???????: ????(???????); ????????: ????? Food types [????]: 1. Carbohydrates[?????]: sources: starch (_______________), sugar (_____________) [??:??( ),?( )] - In gut: starch/sugar is digested to glucose --> absorb by blood (blood glucose) --> release energy by respiration in cells. [????, ??/???????? --> ????(??????) --> ???????????????] (In answering questions about digestion, we usually cannot directly state that we digest starch into glucose, but starch --> maltose-->glucose. But in this question, we only consider the general results of digestion, therefore we stated that starch has been digested into glucose. In fact, this already includes many processes.) [????????, ??????????????????, ????-->???-->???, ?????? ????????, ?????????????, ??????????/???] - Excess[??]: stored as glycogen in liver & muscles, still excess, it is converted to fat and store under skin [???????????; ???, ??????????] 2. Fats[??]: energy-rich; usually stored under skin (forming subcutaneous fat) or around internal organs (original function for absorbing shock, but excess of it causes diseases.

It becomes hard due to water absorption from the faeces. [???????????,????????] - (????: the function of dietary fibre is to prevent constipation [????????????]) - source[??]: obtained from fruits and vegetables [????????] 7.

[?????: ?????/??, ????] more calcium & vitamin D: building bones and teeth. [????????D: ??????] more iron: produce more blood to meet the higher requirement during growth.

are suitable for storage due to their insolubility. [???????, ?????????; ??(????)??????????????????; ???? (???)??? (???), ????????, ?????????]? 6. Vegetarian diet is not suitable for children and teenagers. They are actively growing and some essential amino acids may not be provided in sufficient amount. [????????????????????, ??????????, ????????????????????????????]? 7. Diet in cool area contains lots of fats, because: (a) fats can release much more energy (double) than that of carbohydrates and proteins. This can compensate for the great heat loss. (b) excess fats is stored under skin for insulation/ to reduce heat loss. ??????????, ???????????, ?? (a) ????????????????????(??), ?????????????; (b) ??????????????, ????, ????????? 8. Besides the skin to produce vitamin D under sunlight/UV ray, the bacteria in the large intestine can also produce vitamin K. Therefore not to say that human cannot produce vitamin.
