Differentiate between micro-nutrients and macro-nutrients?
Nutrients needed in relatively large quantities are called macronutrients and those needed in relatively small quantities are called micronutrients. MICRO nutrients are known to be essential nutrients, meaning they are those which are dispensable to life processes, and what the body can-not make itself. In other words meaning these essential nutrients can only be obtained from the food in which we eat. Micro nutrients can be found in; VITAMINS,Minerals,Trace elements Macro nutrients These are present in our diets in large amounts, and make up the bulk of our diets. They can be found in; · Carbohydrates · Fat · Protein · Water

Why are the six nutrients in the body needed to carry out homeostasis?
All of the six nutrients in the body are needed to carry out homeostasis and other bodily processes mainly because the six nutrients: Water Carbohydrates Proteins Fats Vitamins Minerals Are all essential to the bodies health and to carry out functions such as homeostasis and bodily processes such as digestion the body needs the six essential nutrients to "keep it going".

How do the six nutrients needed by the body help carry out essential processes?
In addition to providing energy, carbohydrates provide the raw materials to make cell parts. In addition to providing energy, fats have other important functions. Fats form part of the cell membrane, the structure that forms the boundary of a cell. Fatty tissue protects and supports your internal organs and insulates your body. Proteins are needed for tissue growth and repair. They also play an important part in chemical reactions within cells. Both vitamins and minerals are needed by your body in small amounts to carry out chemical processes. Water is the most important nutrient because the body's vital processes-including chemical reactions such as the breakdown of nutrients-take place in water.

Why is oxygen regarded as the life-giving element on earth?
Asked in Agriculture, Gardening, Elements and Compounds
Why are nitrogen and phosphorus considered such key nutrients?
There are 17-18 nutrients that all are necessary for healthy soils and plants. For example, soils need the elements carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Needed soil elements are called macro and secondary nutrients, if their presence is required in greater amounts; and micronutrients, if lesser. The nutrients that are needed in greater amounts include nitrogen; phosphorus; and potassium, which is critical to the quality of the fruit. Lesser amounts are needed of sulfur, magnesium, and calcium. And still lesser amounts are needed of such nevertheless necessary elements as boron, cobalt, chlorine, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, and zinc. Nitrogen is critical to plant processes, such as photosynthesis. It's also critical to adequate coloring and growth of shoots. And it therefore is also critical to increased yield. Phosphorus is critical to overall plant health. For it promotes healthy root growth. It therefore is critical to the successful intake of water and nutrients, from the soil.

What is the difference between a Macronutrient and micronutrient?
Macro-nutrients are nutrients that provide calories or energy. Nutrients are substances needed for growth, metabolism, and for other body functions. Since "macro" means large, macro-nutrients are nutrients needed in large amounts. There are three macronutrients: Carbohydrate Protein Fat Unlike macro-nutrients which are needed in bigger amounts micro-nutrients only need a small amount in your diet. Theses nutrients help your organs grow. · Vitamins · Minerals Macro-nutrients are needed in large amounts whilst micro-nutrients are needed in smaller amounts.
