In a series I presented called What If? brings together the idea that if we learnt more about this intricate machine we call the human body. I wanted to share with you in a short video how important it is to understand that machine.
The human body is made up of a head, neck, torso, two arms and two legs. – The average height of an adult human is about 5 to 6 feet tall. – The human body is made to stand erect, walk on two feet, use the arms to carry and lift, and has opposable thumbs (able to grasp). This video explores the following parts of the human body system: – Circulatory System (heart, blood, vessels) – Respiratory System (nose, trachea, lungs) – Immune System (many types of protein, cells, organs, tissues) – Skeletal System (bones) – Excretory System (lungs, large intestine, kidneys) – Urinary System (bladder, kidneys) – Muscular System (muscles) – Endocrine System (glands) – Digestive System (mouth, oesophagus, stomach, intestines) – Nervous System (brain, spinal cord, nerves) – Reproductive System (male and female reproductive organs)
