Health/Fitness/Nutrition Questionnaire #2

Each month I will be posting 10 questions related to health, fitness and nutrition. These questions will not be easy, nor should they be too challenging.  As I mentioned in my health/fitness/nutrition questionnaire #1, it is my goal to test your knowledge but to also educate you.

I ask that you try to answer these questions without researching the answers online, or asking someone else to help you.

The answers will be revealed the following week of the Questionnaire on Monday.  Please post your answers in the"Comment" section listed below this post.  Just click the comment link.  There may even be a reward for getting all answers correct.

Good luck and thanks for taking time to learn.
