Why Study Biochemistry? What makes living matter different from non- living matter? What causes diseases? How does the body react to a drug? How does the body react to food and drink? How do drugs, food, and drink affect physical health? How do drugs, food and drink affect mood and mental health (UK leaflet on Blackboard) How does exercise affect mood and energy level?
