Summary
Skin. It's the body's largest organ--the average adult's skin weighs about seven pounds--and yet we shed it every month. Learn how your skin contributes to hair growth and the production of finger and toenails. Go inside the body to see the journey of a sweat droplet--from its birth in the sweat glands to its departure via one of the trillions of pores on your skin. The food machine. Take a trip through the alimentary canal to see what happens to the food we eat. Start in the mouth, where powerful teeth initiate the digestive process. Then, hitch a ride on the saliva train for a journey through the esophagus. Dodge deadly acid attacks in the stomach and further breakdowns in the small intestine. And finally, be eliminated as solid waste. It's a dirty job, but everyone's got to do it. Taste and smell. Travel through the olfactory tract to learn why taste and smell are irrevocably linked. Visit a wine tasting, where receptors on the tongue and in the nose enable visitors to distinguish between a myriad of flavors. Discover how even the most underwhelming scent can evoke a powerful memory and understand the effects of hay fever and other allergies
