True-or-False statements can seem obvious, but they are often constructed to hinge on a single word. Change that word, and a true statement becomes false, or vice versa. Use this discussion to practice specifying what makes one of the following statements true or false, and what it would take to change the case.
Choose one of the following statements to use for your discussion board post:
- The liver and muscle are the primary site for protein storage. Protein storage is limited.
- In prolonged endurance exercise, approximately 3-5 percent of the total energy used is provided by amino acids.
- Athletes who consume high-protein diets are at risk for developing kidney disease.
- Strength athletes usually need protein supplements, because it is difficult to obtain a sufficient amount of protein from food alone.
In your discussion post, indicate which of the statements you have chosen, and explain why you think the statement is either true or false. You may use information from the reading, or from another source. Be sure to state your source of information. A full citation is not necessary, but please tell us enough to make it clear what evidence you are using to support your answer.
