The Human Body


  • Your body is made up of trillions of cells? Different parts of your body are made of different kinds of cells.
  • Your brain is like a computer, and controls your entire body.
  • Your heart beats about 70 times a minute, and each time it beats, it pumps about about a cupful of blood.
  • An adult human heart weighs about 10 ounces and beats over 100,000 times a day.
  • There are 206 bones in your skeleton.
  • About half of the bones in the human body are located in the hands and feet.
  • Everyone has thirty-two teeth.
  • Your muscles make up about one-half of your body weight.
  • If you were to remove your skin, it would weigh as much as 5 pounds.
  • About 70 percent of your body weight is water.
