The human body is the most advanced structure in the known universe. With over 70 trillion cells, each performing thousands of complicated operations every minute, it’s truly a miracle that we’re alive.
In the body, cells form molecules; molecules form tissue, tissue form organs, and organs group together to form systems. No other systems in nature have been found to rival the workings of the body’s systems. For instance, the circulatory or cardiovascular system (heart, blood, blood vessels, lungs) is one of the most complex.
Did you know that your heart beats over 100,000 times and pumps over 2,000 gallons of blood through 96,000 miles of blood vessels everyday?
Considering our sedentary lifestyles and how poorly most of us eat, it’s a miracle the body is able to keep functioning without the necessary raw materials that it needs.
But we do pay a price.
