Human Physiology: //kidneys and Regulation of Water and InOganic Ions//Digestion and Absorbtion of Food//Regulation of Organic Metabolism,Growth and Energy Balance

In the following questions, determine whether they are True of False, and explain your reasoning. (Text may be helpfull: Vander, Sherman & Luciano's, "Human Physiology The Mechanisms of Body Function")
Plese note that the following T/F are extremely misleading.

T/F The presence of high-osmolarity chyme in the small intestine stimulates both water movement into the intestinal lumen from the blood and the discharge of more chyme from the stomach into the duodenum.

T/F The source of the triacylglycerol used for synthesis of very-low-density lipoproteins in the liver is absorbed fatty acids and glycerol.

T/F One serious consequence of insulin lack is the decreased ability of the brain to take up glucose efficiently, and condition that can lead to brain dysfunction and death.

T/F Elevated plasma cortisol concentration is permissive for the growth-promoting actions of growth hormone.

T/F In response to cold stimuli, human beings increase their rate of heat production primarily by increasing basal metabolic rate.

T/F The presence of high-osmolarity chyme in the small intestine stimulates both water movement into the intestinal lumen from the blood and the discharge of more chyme from the stomach into the duodenum. False as the presence of high osmolarity chyme stimulates water movement into the intestinal lumen, but not necessarily discharges more chyme from stomache to the ...
