Our task was to choose a disease from the top 5 causes of death in the world. After we chose, we had to write a definition and the foods that are good and bad for the specific type of disease we chose.
The disease I chose was lung disease: definition:
Lung disease is any problem in the lungs that prevents the lungs from working properly. The lungs and respiratory system allow oxygen in the air to be taken into the body, while also getting rid of carbon dioxide in the air breathed out.
The table below shows what things we should be eating to stay healthy and what we shouldn’t be eating.
|Things we should be eating to be heathy||Things we should avoid to be healthy|
|Whole foods||Carbonated drinks|
During this task I found out that the top 5 diseases that cause death around the world are mostly related to nutrition. I also found out that eating healthy everyday can eventually lead to a healthier and longer life.
We had a food party today and we had to bring a healthy dish, and this is the dish I brought:
Radish & bean paste
Ingredients: radish and bean paste
I brought this because my dad really enjoys it and so I also enjoy it, another reason is because the radishes I brought were grown in our garden. Also because it’s a vegetable it is good for you because it contains vitamin C, it also contains carbohydrates, and prevent respiratory problems such as asthma or bronchitis.
Overall I think the health unit helped me understand what food is good for you and what is not.
