15. The human body is composed of (11) body systems, made up of
special organs and structures that engage in complex processes
including metabolism, energy production and storage, homeostasis
mechanisms, and other life-supporting activities.



16. The cell is the smallest, tiniest unit of life where all of
the actions and processes of life occur.

Group of answer choices



17. Characteristics of life include cell structure, the presence
of DNA and the potential for the reproduction of new generations, a
need for water, growth/development, ATP production, sensitivity to
stimuli and responses to them, metabolism/homeostasis processing,
aging over time and eventual death.



18. Macromolecules include proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and
nucleic acids that have respective roles in supporting the
structure and functions of the body!!



19. Senescence is the normal and predictable aging of the body
over time which ultimately begins at 30 years of age and with time
beyond gives rise to the loss of body structure/function capacity
and undercutting of control over the environment.



20. Environmental effects that can challenge the health and
well-being of humans beings and other life forms include air
pollution, water/land pollution, climate and atmospheric changes,
adulterated food, and water consumption, interruptions in the food
chain, and infectious diseases to name a few.
