The YUAN (Chinese : 元; pinyin : _yuán_) is the basic unit of the renminbi, but is also used to refer to the Chinese currency generally, especially in international contexts where "_CHINESE YUAN_" is widely used to mention the Renminbi.

Carotenoid
CAROTENOIDS (/kəˈrɒtɪnɔɪd/ ), also called TETRATERPENOIDS, are organic pigments that are produced by plants and algae, as well as several bacteria and fungi. Carotenoids can be produced from fats and other basic organic metabolic building blocks by all these organisms. The only animals known to produce carotenoids are aphids and spider mites , which acquired the ability and genes from fungi or it is produced by endosymbiotic bacteria in whiteflies . Carotenoids from the diet are stored in the fatty tissues of animals, and exclusively carnivorous animals obtain the compounds from animal fat. There are over 600 known carotenoids; they are split into two classes, xanthophylls (which contain oxygen) and carotenes (which are purely hydrocarbons, and contain no oxygen). All are derivatives of tetraterpenes , meaning that they are produced from 8 isoprene molecules and contain 40 carbon atoms

Abdominal Distension
ABDOMINAL DISTENSION occurs when substances, such as air (gas) or fluid, accumulate in the abdomen causing its outward expansion beyond the normal girth of the stomach and waist. It is typically a symptom of an underlying disease or dysfunction in the body, rather than an illness in its own right. People suffering from this condition often describe it as "feeling bloated ". Sufferers often experience a sensation of fullness, abdominal pressure and possibly nausea , pain or cramping . In the most extreme cases, upward pressure on the diaphragm and lungs can also cause shortness of breath. Through a variety of causes (see below), bloating is most commonly due to buildup of gas in the stomach , small intestine or colon . The pressure sensation is often relieved, or at least lessened, by burping (belching ) or passing gas (flatulence ). Medications that settle gas in the stomach and intestines are also commonly used to treat the discomfort and lessen the abdominal distension

Digestion
DIGESTION is the breakdown of large insoluble food molecules into small water-soluble food molecules so that they can be absorbed into the watery blood plasma . In certain organisms, these smaller substances are absorbed through the small intestine into the blood stream . Digestion is a form of catabolism that is often divided into two processes based on how food is broken down: mechanical and chemical digestion. The term MECHANICAL DIGESTION refers to the physical breakdown of large pieces of food into smaller pieces which can subsequently be accessed by digestive enzymes. In CHEMICAL DIGESTION, enzymes break down food into the small molecules the body can use

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)
