- Micronutrients/ Mike
Organic Compounds consisting of carbon, oxygen, & hydrogen; Sugar compounds that plants make when they're exposed to light.
Plants take in carbon dioxide through their roots, then release oxygen into the air. Last, carbon and water remains behind in the plant to form carbohydrates.

- Triglyerides/ Tricia
- Phospholipids/ Phil
- Sterols/ Steve
Unsaturated fatty acids that are kept at room temperature.
Lipids that contain multiple rings of carbon atoms(Steroids).
Buildup of Cholesterol & other material, called Plaque, on the inner walls of the coronary arteries.
C.A.D.(Coronary Artery Disease)
Coronaries become hardened & narrow due to Atherosclerosis.
associated with atherogenesis or with the formation of plaque in the inner lining of arteries; Foods with saturated fats are extremely atherogenic.
a spherical molecule with water soluble proteins on the exterior; group of compounds made by the body that transport lipids through the bloodstream of various body parts.
deposited into the artery walls, leading to plaque buildup and heart disease.
