It is riddled with holes, yet contains 15 gallons of water and a pint of hydrochloric acid. It has more protein than 70 pounds of peanuts. It has enough carbon to fill a thousand pencils, and enough phosphorous for 3,000 match heads. What sounds like a collection of chemicals in a leaky bag is the most complex structure on our planet, and 400,000 of them are born every day. The one thing we all have in common is the amazing machine we all inhabit... the human body. In the course of its life, it will breathe ten million balloons worth of air. It will process 30 tons of food. And it will secrete 17 gallons of tears. But humans rarely stop to think about the amazing technology behind even the most mundane action, the technology we will explore in this episode of The Ultimate Guide.
