To be of use to the body these foodstuffs must be digested and absorbed. Food must therefore be of such a nature that it can be digested—i.e., broken down by digestive juices into substances that can pass into the blood stream, and be carried to the various tissues for their use. Proteins, carbohydrates and fats are complicated compounds found in plant and animal matter, and require digestion. Water and mineral salts are simple inorganic substances; they can be absorbed, therefore, without digestion, they enter into the composition of all animal and plant matter. In fact, all living matter consists largely of water. The inorganic salts, absorbed from the soil or water, are built up by living things into organic salts.

Healthy food is food considered to be beneficial to health.

The goal of healthy eating is to develop a diet that you can maintain for life, not just a few weeks or months.

Finally, there are three main messages to follow for healthy eating: First, we should eat less fat, particularly saturated fat. Secondly, we are to cut down on sugar and salt. Thirdly, we must eat more fresh fruit and vegetables.

Exercise 11. Read and translate the information given below. You can use a dictionary. Be ready to use it in the story of your own:

Сarbohydrate is any one of a large group of compounds, including the sugars and starch that contain carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Carbohydrates are important as a source of energy: they are manufactured by plants and obtained by animals and man from the diet, being one of the three main constituents of food. All carbohydrates are eventually broken down in the body to the simple sugar glucose, which can then take part in energy-producing metabolic processes. Excess carbohydrate, not immediately required by the body, is stored in the liver and muscles in the form of glycogen. In plants carbohydrates are important structural materials (e.g. cellulose) and storage products (commonly in the form of starch).

Fat is a substance that contains one or more fatty acids (in the form of triglycerides) and is the principal form in which energy is stored by the body (in adipose tissue). It also serves as an insulating material beneath the skin (in the subcutaneous tissue) and around certain organs (including the kidneys). Fat is one of the three main constituents of food; it is necessary in the diet to provide an adequate supply of essential fatty acids and for the efficient absorption of fat-soluble vitamins from the intestine. Excessive deposition of fat in the body leads to 'obesity.

 

Protein is one of a group of organic compounds of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen (sulphur and phosphorus may also be present). The protein molecule is a complex structure made up of one or more chains of amino acids, which are linked by peptide bonds. Proteins are essential constituents of the body; they form the structural material of muscles, tissues, organs, etc., and are equally important as regulators of function, as enzymes and hormones. Proteins are synthesized in the body from their constituent amino acids, which are obtained from the digestion of protein in the diet. Excess protein, not required by the body, can be converted into glucose and used as an energy source.

 

Exercise 12. Match the terms with their explanation:

1. starch 2. tissue 3. vitamin 4. absorption 5. digestion 6. glucose a) a collection of cells specialized to perform a particular function; b) the uptake of fluids or other substances by the tissues of the body; c) the process in which ingested food is broken down in the alimentary canal; d) a simple sugar containing six carbon atoms, it is an important source of energy; e) any of a group of substances that are required in very small amounts for healthy growth and development; f) a white odorless tasteless granular or powdery complex carbohydrate.
