June 2012 Pre release article. 'Self made notes and predicted questions'

Hi All,

I have created a 14-paged PDF file (if printed all together, consisting of:
- The 9 paged article (original version)
- 4 pages of own set of notes (mainly spider diagram based)
- 1 page of possible self-thought questions, (29 questions)

Revise units: 1 (heart section: lipids, fats, LDLs, HDLs) and 2 (gene expression).
Quite an easy article, if you have revised everything

Everything here is self-made, and so if there are any mistakes that you find, please let me know!

18. It has been recently reported that restricting calories to 1200 kcal per day increases the total output
of cortisol in females. Cortisol is important for regulating changes in behaviour and functions
such as glucose metabolism and the inflammatory process. Prolonged exposure to high levels,
however, can lead to higher…

distribution is different to that seen…

57. At a practical level, a minimum standard of risk acceptability would have to be established based
upon visual physique parameters such as waist-hip ratio and dress size. Alternatively, a roughly
accurate proportion of female media images of an average UK dress size 16 could be ensured.
