One minute you feel all fine, that you’ll ace a test perfectly since you’ve paid attention in class, and you’ve studied previously.
The next minute you start feeling like you’re unprepared and wished that you have studied more.
And right now I’m feeling the latter.
I HAVE A HUGE HEALTH TEST TOMORROW FOR FITNESS CLASS, I STUDIED LIKE 6 HOURS IN TOTAL BUT I STILL DON’T REMEMBER ALL OF THE CRAP BLEHH
AND EVEN SO, I DIDN’T EVEN REVIEW MY DRUG SHEET AHHHHHHHHHHHH [SCREAMING INTERNALLY]
GOING TO REWRITE NOTES I NEED TO KNOW HERE BECAUSE WHY NOT (AND WHEN I GET ON MY PHONE, I’LL LIKE COPY AND PASTE THESE NOTES ONTO IT SO I CAN READ IT TO BED OR SOMETHING, LIKE A BEDTIME STORY OF HEALTH AND CRAP)
By the way there is way more than this, but I’m highlighting the ones I keep on forgetting/I didn’t memorize it fully.
Good Carbohydrates vs Bad Carbohydrates
Good Carbohydrates (Complex Carbs)
- High in Fiber
- Metabolism booster
- Feel fuller longer
- Provides long term energy
Bad Carbohydrates (Simple Carbs)
- Low in Fiber/nutrients
- Empty Calories (turns into fat)
- Feeling tired
- Provides short term energy
*Cellulose can’t be digested by the human body, and helps form part of the fiber that passes undigested out of the body, helping to keep our colon clean.
Lipids are an EXCELLENT ENERGY STORAGE COMPOUND.
They’re important because:
- They make up cell membranes
- Serve as insulation (keeps our bodies warm)
- Gives our organs an extra layer of protection
- Important Steroids, like testosterone and estrogen.
A fatty wax like substance.
They’re important because:
- Helps makes vitamin D
- Manufactures hormones
- Breaks down food in digestion
- Insulate nerves
- Supports cell membranes
You get it from:
- Animal Products
- Created by your liver
- Little amounts from your cells
Good Cholesterol VS Bad Cholesterol
High Density Lipoprotein is good. It helps removes Low Density Lipoprotein from the arteries.
Low Density Lipoprotein contributes to plague artery walls, making them less flexible by clogging them. This is known as atherosclerosis.
Proteins are important because:
- They’re essential for the building, repair, and maintenance of body tissues and cells.
- They’re used in many chemical activities. (wtf why is this on the health notes she gives us this is bullcrap we don’t need to know this)
- Enzymes are proteins that control the rates of many reactions. (WHY IS THIS ON HERE TOO)
- Your body needs them when they do work.
Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins are needed to:
- Build and maintain cells for metabolism regulation
- They help release energy from macro nutrients that we’ve consumed.
- A, D, E, K are FAT SOLUBLE and TOXIC in HIGH LEVELS
- B AND C are WATER SOLUBLE
Minerals are needed to:
- Help the body release energy from macro nutrients we’ve consumed
- Make bones, proteins, and blood
The human body is around 60-70% WATER.
We need water to:
- Help us digest food
- Carry nutrients
- Removes waste
- Cushion Organs
- Make energy
- Maintain fluid and electrolyte balance (balance of salt, sugar, and water)
Safe Food Handling Practices
- Use a cutting board to cut meat, then wash the board and the knife with hot soapy water for 2 minutes.
- Use a separate knife to cut your vegetables, or but them before cutting the meat. (In case of Salmonella or E.Coli)
- If a can is leaking, rusted, badly dented, or bulging do not open it, throw it right away.
- Cool food as quickly as possible before putting it into containers to take home.
- Foods should be refrigerated or frozen as soon as possible. Bacteria will grow if food is left at room temperature.
- It is recommended that cooked meals be kept up to three days in the refrigerator and up to three months in the freezer.
- When reheating meals at home, be sure to get the food up to the proper temperature, food should be steaming hot.
- Thaw frozen foods in the fridge, microwave oven or cold running water.
- If in doubt, throw it out.
Drug refers to any substance that is taken to change the way the body and/or mind functions.
- Using drugs in a way they are not intended to be used. (Obtained illegally, using more than the recommended dosage)
- Regular long term drug use
- Physical/Psychological dependence
- Experience Withdrawal Symptoms
- Develops a tolerance because they’ve taken too much of that drug. (They need more of it to get a desired affect.)
Drugs are essentially poisons, many of then affect the mind.
They can distort the user’s perception of what is happening around him/her. As a result, the person’s actions may be odd, irrational, inappropriate and even destructive.
Drugs block off all sensations, the desirable ones with the unwanted. So they while providing short term help in the relief of pain, they also wipe out ability and alertness and muddy one’s thinking.
Types of Drugs
- Stimulants – Drugs that make you more hyper and alert
- Depressants – Drugs that cause the body/mind to slow down
- Hallucinogens – Drugs that disrupt a person’s perception of reality and cause them to imagine experiences and objects that seem real.
- Drugs are regulated yet legal to consume, when done so within the limits of the regulations.
- While these products can be consumed legally, they can still produce undesirable effects on one’s health, body, and social life.
- Principal ingredient: Ethanol
- Impairs the brain’s activity
- Regular consumption will bring liver and brain damage, heart disease, and increases types of cancer.
- Results in disruptions of the drinker’s social, family, and working life.
- Comes from nicotine (makes you addicted to tobacco)
- Depending on how it’s made, it can change the taste and how much nicotine it contains.
- It can easily lead to dependence to the drug.
- It is found naturally in many plants such as: coffee beans, tea leaves, and cocoa nuts. It can be produced artificially.
- Once caffeine enters your system, it takes effect in around 15 minutes. To get rid of half of the caffeine you have consumed, it can take up to 6 hours. Caffeine stimulates the brain similar to cocaine and heroin.
- Caffeine is still addictive.
- People huff these inhalants
- When they’re taken, chemicals can go straight to the brain, which can cause serious long term effects. Such as: depression, irritability, disorientation, nose bleeds, paranoia, coma, hearing loss, muscle spasms.
- Huffing can cause Sudden Sniffing Death Syndrome. (Once startled, an adrenaline rush can be triggered and lead to heart failure and death.)
They’re drugs regulated by the Federal Government of Canada.
- Anabolic Steroids
Medicines are drugs intended to speed up or slow down or change something about the way your body is working.
Sometimes you need them, but they’re still drugs. If you don’t use medicines as they’re supposed to be used, they can be as dangerous as illegal drugs.
Signs of overdose:
- Slurred speech
- Weakness and Staggering
- Slow Heart Beat
- Breathing Problems
Call 911 ASAP if someone has overdosed.
- Cocaine and Crack
- Magic Mushrooms
- Bath Salts
Path to Addition:
No Use to Use (no substance use to using) –> Misuse (using it for not it’s intended use) –> Abuse ( use it more often) –> Dependency (becomes your way of life.)
How to Respond to Peer Pressure:
- Respond with humour
- Reference a health issue
- Respond that real friends don’t make you do things you don’t want to
- Make up an excuse
- Be confident
- REMEMBER GOD MADE YOU TO GIVE YOU A LONG LOVING LIFE (BECAUSE Y’KNOW, I CAME FROM A CATHOLIC SCHOOL)
OMG THIS IS SOO MUCH HOW AM I GOING TO MEMORIZE THIS BY TOMORROW
RIP ME FAILING TEST
