Have you given any thought to how we are living? Have you thought about what processes must exist in your body to prevent disease? Have you thought about how we grow and age? Surely many times have you thought about this and some of the answers you got in your schooling, but it are very important to know what functions occur in our bodies that we learn to value and care. Therefore, in Makeufits tell you how our body works.
The cell, the principle of all
First, to explain without going into detail how our body, we must focus on the cell, the microscopic unit up our tissues and functions gives our bodies. When thinking about how we are alive and functional, we will go deeper into a world of biology, where many names such as genes, DNA, mitosis, meiosis, Krebs cycle, etc.., Will be involved, and that will help you learn your body and other living species, which are all related to the cells.
The cells clump together and form various body tissues and different organs, which can be differentiated according to their functions, including:
In our skin, a series of processes from cell differentiation to the formation of different structures, like our fingernails, fingerprints and our hair and skin growth and the formation of these layers: the epidermis The dermis and hypodermis (or subcutaneous). Its function is to protect us from foreign substances that may affect us. To know more about this system, I invite you to see here some skin diseases.
If we getting into our body, we find under the skin below the muscles and bones and joints, which help us to keep moving and be able to stand upright.
If we inspect our body, we see that many arteries and veins are in all systems, helping the organs to irrigate and to function properly. All this is possible thanks to a powerful pump that helps the blood to all parts: the heart.
Our heart can not function properly if you do not find oxygen to help the system work, so our respiratory system is vital to produce the gas exchange that allows us to be alive.
The system that commands our movements and many of our vital functions (such as breathing, temperature regulation and some hormones) is in charge of the nervous system, which is essential for life.
To have energy for all processes require of our digestive system, which helps us digest food and gain nutrients from them. As this system is so important to us, we invite you to read this article, where we show you some tips on caring for your digestive system.
How are we to remove toxic substances that enter our body? We can do that through our genitourinary system (where we have to the kidneys, ureters, bladder and genitals), and thanks to our liver (which is considered part of the digestive system many times), which is the great detoxifier of the body.
To defend against external agents (and some internal), that may affect us, we need the immune system that defends and protects us from viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, protozoa and other agents. Lymphatic system also helps us eliminate all the harmful substances that affect us, working as an interconnected network that runs parallel to our circulatory system.
Thus, broadly speaking, we divided our body as we go different functions and understanding how our bodies act to know what happens when a disease. This is not only important for us to value our bodies and we marveled at all the processes that occur in it, but also to understand the treatments that we give our doctor when we get sick and have more care to self-medicate.
