12. Explain why the food pyramid is shaped the way that it is. Explain both the Triangular
shape of the pyramid as a whole, AND why the food categories are shown as different sized
wedges of the pyramid.
The pyramid shape indicates that people eat different amounts of food. The smaller top
would represent smaller quantities of food being eaten on a daily basis, and the larger
bottom would represent larger amounts of food being eaten. The different size wedges
represent the amount of each type of food group that should be eaten. For example, people
at the bottom (who eat large amounts of food) should be eating more grains than people at
the top (who eat less), but by percentage, the amount of each food group that you eat should
be the same, regardless of what your total dietary intake is.

Lung Alveoli

17. Describe why smoking is harmful. Include the following words in your answer. CIRCLE
each word in your answer.

Alveoli Chemical(s)
Lungs Carcinogen(s)
Second hand Tar

Smoking is harmful because cigarette smoke contains many (over 4000) different
chemicals, some of which are known carcinogens, which means that they are known to
cause cancer. When smoke enters the lungs, it leaves deposits of tar and other residue on
parts of the lungs, including the bronchioles and the alveoli, which makes it difficult for the
lungs to absorb oxygen, or exchange carbon dioxide.
