What are some of the causes of dehydration?
Dehydration occurs when there isn't enough water to replace what's lost throughout the day. Your system literally dries out. [ Sometimes dehydration occurs for simple reasons: You don't drink enough because you're sick or busy, or because you lack access to safe drinking water when you're traveling, hiking or camping. ]

What is protein? How are amino acids involved in protein? Explain the differences between complete, incomplete, and complementary proteins – and provide an example or 2 of each.
Weegy: Protein is such substances collectively, esp. as a dietary component. [ One of the things that helps determine the native conformation of a protein is the side chains of all the amino acids involved. A complete protein contains an adequate amount of all of the essential amino acids that should be incorporated into a diet. An incomplete protein is any protein that lacks one or more essential amino acids in correct proportions. Complementary proteins do not need to be eaten together, so long as the day's meals supply them all. Example of complete protein: meat, fish incomplete protein: grains, nuts complementary protein: wheat, rice ] (More)

What is protein? How are amino acids involved in protein? Explain the differences between complete, incomplete, and complementary proteins and provide an example or 2 of each.
Weegy: The word ‘protein’ refers to a type of molecule in food that can be broken down into amino acids. The body needs twenty amino acids, as a biological machine it can create (or synthesize) eleven of these itself. [ However there are nine, termed ‘essential amino acids’ that the body cannot create and has to gain through consumption of food. These ‘essential amino acids’ are: Tryptophan, Threonine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Valine and Histidine. When we eat, the body breaks down the protein in food in order to create the amino acids that it needs. Find more at: Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins. Fundamentally, amino acids are joined together by peptide bonds to form the basic structure of proteins. However, owing to the many ‘side groups’ that are part of the amino acids other sorts of bonds may form between the amino acid units. These additional bonds twist and turn the protein into convoluted shapes that are unique to the protein and essential to its ability to perform certain functions within the human body. This brief paper looks at the classes of amino acids, and how they bond to form the complex structures of proteins. Incomplete Proteins An incomplete protein is any protein that lacks one or more essential amino acids in correct proportions. These can also be referred to as partial proteins. Even if the protein contains all the essential amino acids, they must be in equal proportions in order to be considered complete. If not, the protein is considered incomplete. Sources of Incomplete Proteins The following foods are examples of incomplete proteins: Grains Nuts Beans Seeds Peas Corn Combining Incomplete Proteins to Create Complete Proteins By combining foods from two or more incomplete proteins, a complete protein can be created. The amino acids that may be missing from one type of food can be compensated by adding a protein that contains that missing amino acid. When eaten in combination at ... (More)
