Mini-Quiz: Preventing Physical Diseases

by Ron Kurtus (3 November 2001)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why are clean hands important in preventing disease?

Rubbing your eyes, nose or mouth can allow agents to enter your body

People don't like to shake your hand, if you don't keep clean

Germs usually infect the hands first

2. What can happen if a person smokes heavily?

The person will cough more but will not get sick

The person will have dirty hands, allowing disease to start

The person's resistance to disease can be lowered

3. Can you still get sick after being vaccinated?

Yes, because vaccines are only for specific diseases

No, because a vaccination protects you for one year

It is unsure whether vaccinations help people or not

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in being Healthy. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
