Demonstration of Understanding of Unit III Concepts

The topics covered in Unit III examine the effects that drugs can have on multiple body systems. These effects can happen whether one uses macronutrients, minerals, herbals, addictive drugs, antibacterial, or antiviral drugs. Each class possesses a unique mechanism of action intended to achieve a desired response or produce an undesirable outcome. The PowerPoint presentation in this unit will help you research and learn more about the effects of drugs on the body—both good and bad. For this assignment, choose one macronutrient or mineral, one herbal supplement, one addictive drug, and one antibacterial drug. For the drug chosen in each of the four classes, create one slide that illustrates the purpose, use, or necessary function of the drug in the human body, plus one slide that lists the warning signs and effects of too much or too little of the drug. Explain how this knowledge will help you in identifying correct codes for these substances (take-home). The list below shows a possible layout for your PowerPoint presentation:

Title slide
Macronutrient or mineral function and use
Warning signs and symptoms of too much or too little macronutrient or mineral
