Description

Teeming with facts and knowledgeable insights, this handbook explores key topics concerning human anatomy. From ancient Egyptian mummification to the use of nuclear medicine to visualize anatomical structures as they are actually working, readers explore the wonders of the human body and discover its remarkable characteristics (for example, the acidity inside the stomach, because parietal cells secrete hydrochloric acid to reach a pH of 1.8 to 3.5, is astounding [normal body pH is between 7.35 and 7.45, whereas a car battery acid has a pH of about 1]). Instructive charts and fact boxes highlight significant historical and biological concepts.
