Lightbulb What about the carbohydrates?



I wonder why carbohydrates are not being researched, instead. Are they?
Why the proteins? I'm so curious I'll go study why you reseach proteins.

Proteins are responsible for so much activity inside the cell AND they are one of the reasons that DNA exists.
Scientists estimate that each of your cells contains about 10 billion protein molecules of approximately 10,000 different varieties.

The workhorse molecules of your cells, proteins are responsible for a wide range of tasks, including carrying oxygen in your blood (a protein called hemoglobin), digesting your food (enzymes like amylase, pepsin, and lactase), defending your body from invading microorganisms (antibodies), and speeding up chemical reactions inside your body (enzymes again—they're not all for digesting food). Specially designed proteins even give elasticity to your skin (elastin) and strength to your hair and fingernails (keratin).

Carbohydrates plays a vital role also in our body. Can you share food where we can get a source?

I don't agree that proteins are garnering more research then carbohydrates. I actually think that carbs are being studied more in depth because a surplus of carbs are stored as fat-- which is why the U.S. is battling a serious obesity issue.

I believe that proteins and carbohydrates plays important role in our system..But we must just be careful on taking these in our body because if it's abused then the result would not be good..

Studies shows that carbohydrates is bad if its over, like if a person is eating foods that are rich in carbohydrates, of course he will get fats and that is dangerous. on the other hand, if a person eats more protein than our body needs it, then he must expect the bad result too...that is why people gets obesity...moderation is the issue.

Because proteins are more important than carbohydrates in our body.
