  • Things that can effect your blood pressure are - Diet, Overweight, Amount of exercise you do, Stress, Large consumption of alcohol
  • Respiration is a process in which your body releases energy from glucose, this happens constantly in every cell in your body
  • Aerobic respiration uses oxygen
  • The equation for Aerobic respiration is - Glucose + oxygen -> Carbon dioxide + water (+energy)
  • Anaerobic respiration happenes without oxygen
  • The equation for this form of respiration is - Glucose -> Lactic acid (+energy)
  • Eating to much can cause obesity
  • Eating to little can cause problems also
  • Your BMI tells you whether you are underweight, overweight or normal
  • Carbohydrases break down carbohydrates
  • Proteases convert proteins into amino acids
  • Lipases convert fats into fatty acids and glycerol
