Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the following questions . Colors are one of the most exciting experiences in life. I love them, and they are just as important to me as emotions are. Have you ever wondered how the two are so intimately related? Color directly affects your emotions. Color both reflects the current state of your emotions, and is something that you can use to improve or change your emotions. The color that you choose to wear either refects your current state of being, or reflects the color or emotion that you need. The colors that you wear affect you much more than they affect the people around you. Of course they also affect anyone who comes in contract with you, but you are the one saturated with the color all day ! I even choose items around me based on their color. In the morning, I choose my clothes based on the color or emotion that I need for the day. So you can consciously use color to control the emotions that you are exposed to, which can help you to feel better. Color, sound, and emotions are all vibrations. Emotions are literally energy in motion; they are meant to move and flow. This is the reason that real feelings are the fastest way to get your energy in motion. Also, flowing energy is exactly what creates healthy cells in your body. So, the fastest way to be healthy is to be open to your real feelings.

The history of clinical nutrition, or the study of the relationship between health and how the body takes in and utilizes food substances, can be divided into four distinct eras: the first began in the nineteenth century and extended into the early twentieth century when it was recognized for the first time that food contained constituents that were essential for human function and that different foods provided different amounts of these essential agents. Near the end of this
era, research studies demonstrated that rapid weight loss was associated with nitrogen imbalance and could only be rectified by providing adequate dietary protein associated with certain foods. The second era was initiated in the early decades of the twentieth century and might be called "the vitamin period. " Vitamins came to be recognized in foods, and deficiency syndromes were described. As vitamins became recognized as essential food constituents necessary for health, it became tempting to suggest that every disease and condition for which there had been no previous effective treatment might be responsive to vitamin therapy. At that point in time, medical schools started to become more interested in having their curricula integrate nutritional concepts into the basic sciences. Much of the focus of this education was on the recognition of deficiency symptoms. Herein lay the beginning of what ultimately turned from ignorance to denial of the value of nutritional therapies in medicine. Reckless claims were made for effects of vitamins that went far beyond what could actually be achieved from the use of them. In the third era of nutritional history in the early 1950's to mid-1960's, vitamin therapy began to fall into disrepute. Concomitant with this, nutrition education in medical schools also became less popular. It was just a decade before this that many drug companies had found their vitamin sales skyrocketing and were quick to supply practicing physicians with generous samples of vitamins and literature extolling the virtue of supplementation for a variety of health-related conditions. Expectations as to the success of vitamins in disease control were exaggerated. As is known in retrospect, vitamin and mineral therapies are much less effective when applied to health-crisis conditions than when applied to long-term problems of under nutrition that lead to chronic health problems. Question 71: What does the passage mainly discuss? A. The stages of development of clinical nutrition as a field of study B. The history of food preferences from the nineteenth century to the present C. The effects of vitamins on the human body D. Nutritional practices of the nineteenth century Question 72: It can be inferred from the passage that which of the following discoveries was made during the first era in the history of nutrition? A.

Protein was recognized as an essential component of diet. Question 73: The word "tempting" is closest in meaning to. A. realistic B. necessary C. correct D. attractive Question 74: It can be inferred from the passage that medical schools began to teach concepts of nutrition in order to A. encourage medical doctors to apply concepts of nutrition in the treatment of disease B. support the creation of artificial vitamins C. convince doctors to conduct experimental vitamin therapies on their patients D. convince medical doctors to participate in research studies on nutrition Question 75: The word "Reckless" is closest in meaning to? A. recorded B. irresponsible C. informative D. urgent Question 76: The word "them" refers to A. effects B. vitamins C. claims D. therapies Question 77: Why did vitamin therapy begin losing favor in the 1950's ? A. Medical schools stopped teaching nutritional concepts B. Nutritional research was of poor quality C. The public lost interest in vitamins D. Claims for the effectiveness of vitamin therapy were seen to be exaggerated.
