The research，from the University of Alberta in Canada，showed that when eggs come in contact with stomach enzymes(酶) they produce a protein that acts in the same way as ACE_inhibitors，but more work is needed to show the effects outside a lab and in the human body. Earlier this month，British researchers declared that，contrary to popular beliefs，it is healthy to go to work on an egg.They concluded that the type of cholesterol(胆固醇) found in eggs has little effect on increasing heart disease risks. Researcher Professor Bruce Griffin，from the University of Surrey，said, “The wrong beliefs linking eggeating to high blood cholesterol and heart disease must be corrected.The amount of fat in our diet has an effect on blood cholesterol that is several times greater than the relatively small amounts of cholesterol found in eggs.The UK public do not need to be limiting the number of eggs they eat.They can be encouraged to include them in a healthy diet as they are one of nature's most nutritious foods.” The British Heart Foundation dropped its three?egg?a?week limit in 2005.However，almost half of Britons believe the limit still applies. 16．From the text we know that “ACE inhibitors” are ________． A．a kind of medicine B．a kind of protein C．a kind of illness D．a kind of food 17．According to what Professor Bruce said，eggs ________． A．are the most nutritious food B．have no effect on blood cholesterol C．can be included in a healthy diet D．are forbidden to be eaten in the UK 18．We can infer from the text that ________． A．drugs to lower blood pressure will be replaced by eating eggs B．stomach enzymes mixed with eggs can cure heart diseases C．most Britons agree the three- aegg- week limit should be dropped D．about 50% of Britons think eating an egg a day is bad for their health 19．The text is meant ________． A．to introduce scientific findings about eggs B．to introduce a medicine made from eggs
C．to tell people how to lower their blood pressure D．to advise people to eat as many eggs as possible Ⅲ.阅读表达 阅读下面短文并回答问题。 Many people complain about their work day by day, however, we have some suggestions for you. Just keep all these in mind, and you are sure to feel happier than before. ☆People Need You. There's always someone who relies on you, no matter what type of work you do. The public rely on the toilet cleaners to keep the toilets fresh. The public rely on the trashmen to remove their unwanted garbage. So recognize that there are always those who need you to do a good job. Please don't let them down. ☆Plan Out Your Day. Often, we'll find a day disappears as quickly as it arrives because we get bogged down with minor chores and emergencies that keep appearing. These minor fires mean we don't get to tackle the much bigger fires, which would give us a lot more satisfaction. What's the best way to deal with this? Plan out your day. At the end of your shift, decide what “major fires” need putting out tomorrow. Plan out when you'll tackle these major issues, and then stick to that plan no matter what little embers may pop up. ☆Do something different. Consistency is a good thing to have at work. But what isn't good to have is the same routine, day after day. It drags you down, it makes you tired early in the day, and it kills any motivation you have for the job. Do something different! Step out of your routine and take a fresh look at things. Inject some variety into your days, even if it's something as simple as taking a different route to work. ☆________. It amazes me sometimes how little some people actually know about their work colleagues. Your colleagues are not robots. They're other human beings too, breathing and talking and trying to make a living, just like you. So treat them as human beings. Get to know them a bit better each day by asking a different question, or by starting a new topic. Share experiences with them, and they'll realize that you're human too, and that it's OK to talk with each other about something other than work. 20．What is this passage mainly about?
