Ques!on 10 1 / 1 point Angela recently had blood work to assess her risk of heart disease. The results showed an
elevated reading that puts her in a high risk category. Her doctor explained that this blood
component is a newly iden!fied primary culprit in atherosclerosis because it can pass into
the arterial wall leading to plaque build-up. Which test result led to this conclusion?
a) High density lipoprotein
b) Small par!cle, low density lipoprotein c) Homocysteine

b) Cholesterol is only found in animal sources and never plant sources
c) The cholesterol molecule on its own is soluble in blood.

Ques!on 16 1 / 1 point What eﬀect does sugar generally have on a persons lipid profile?
a) Sugars block LDL receptors on cells which, through feedback systems, s!mulate
increased LDL produc!on.
b) The body will use the simple carbohydrates as fuel first, causing triglycerides to
build up and small par!cle LDL to increase.
c) As blood sugar levels rise, insulin is released by the pancreas which signals the liver
to increase HDL produc!on.
d) Sugar competes with cholesterol transport proteins in the gut, decreasing the
absorp!on of cholesterol into the blood. View Feedback

Ques!on 19 0 / 1 point Elevated blood levels of homocysteine are associated with increased risk of heart a#ack. As
explained in the lecture, B vitamins are important in the processing of homocysteine. A
study was conducted where pa!ents were prescribed Vitamin B supplements. The results
showed that their homocysteine levels dropped but there was no change in the rate of heart
a#acks. Given the results of this study, what alternate hypothesis might one propose about
the rela!onship between homocysteine and heart a#acks?
a) Vitamin B must be isolated from natural sources for it to be an eﬀec!ve treatment
for heart disease.
b) Foods that are naturally high in vitamin B contain other compounds that are
protec!ve against heart disease.
c) There is no rela!onship between homocysteine levels and heart disease.
d) Heart a#acks cause homocysteine levels to increase. View Feedback
