True or False: All types of chocolate provide health benefits.

  • True
  • False

Explanation

Research suggests that the consumption of chocolate may help prevent high blood pressure, improve heart health, and provide a bounty of antioxidants. But all chocolate is not created equal, and not all types of chocolate offer these health benefits.


True or False: Sunscreen blocks your body's ability to make vitamin D when exposed to sunlight.


  • True
  • False

Explanation

Vitamin D is known as the "sunshine vitamin" because it is made in your skin when the ultraviolet light hits your skin. However, sunscreen can inhibit the body's ability to make vitamin D. If you eat a balanced diet and get outside in the sunshine at least 1.5 to 2 hours a week, you should be getting all the vitamin D you need.


True or False: The nutrient content of an egg depends mostly on whether or not the eggs come from free range chickens.

FALSE



Explanation

The terms "free-range," "vegetarian-fed" and "organic" are all on egg cartons these days. While free-range does mean the chicken is not caged, it does not necessarily mean that the chicken roams outdoors (it only hasaccess to open space at some point each day). A chicken's feed is what affects the nutritional quality of its eggs. The label "vegetarian-fed" ensure no animal by-products are fed to the chickens laying the eggs, and "organic" means the chicken's feed is organic.



How high should you elevate your heart rate during an aerobic (cardio) workout?

  • As high as possible - 100%
  • Between 85 and 95 %
  • Between 60 and 85 %
  • Moderately - about 50%
  • Explanation

    The recommended heart rate range for aerobic exercise is 60-85% of your maximum heart rate. This range is called the target heart rate (THR) zone. This range is ideal for the general health benefits that come with exercise, and for weight loss. You can use your THR, the "Talk Test" or Perceived Exertion to make sure you're working out in a good intensity level (not too easy, not too hard).
