Why you look the way you do? Why you do the things you do?

Updated on August 24, 2014

Human Body

The Human Body

Why we look the way we do? Why we do the things we do like walking, running, feeling, seeing, hearing and a lot more intrigue us. The human body is a machine that does many things. To do these things, it needs many parts. All these parts together are what we are.


Human Skeleton

The Skeleton

Our body is composed of more than 200 bones and these make up our skeleton. The skeleton performs several functions: protection, support and keep the shapes of the body. The skull is the one protecting our brain, while the ribs protect the heart and the lungs. The skeleton also helps the body in keeping its shape and supports the soft parts of the body like the skin.

Muscles and Joints

Movements, Muscles and Bones

If your going to have a closer look at your body, you would notice that some part is moving all the time. Why? The muscles are the one making these movements possible. Now what makes your eyes blink? What about your tongue? The muscles are the one making your eyes blink and move the tongue. Muscles allow you to walk, jump, run, lift and throw. During sleep, muscles are still working through helping you to breathe.

Bones in your body form joints to allow you to move around. These are in found in your arms and legs.

What about your hands and feet?

To be able to carry out various tasks like writing, drawing and even lifting heavy objects you use your hands. On the other hand your feet help you walk, jump, stand and run. Why? These are all because of the bones, joints and muscles.

The Heart

The Heart: The Pumping Organ

It is the pumping organ of the circulatory system. It is a hallow large muscle about the size of one’s fist. The heart lies under the breastbone in the center of the chest cavity. It is completely enclosed by a thin tough membrane called pericardium, which protects the heart from rubbing against the lungs and wall of the chest. The inside of pericardium acts as a smooth lining that secretes a slippery liquid. The heart beats smoothly and with little friction and against the moistened lining of the pericardium. An adult’s heart is about 3 inches (13 cm.) long, 3 ½ inches (9 cm.) wide and 2 ½ inches (6.4 cm.) thick. The septum divides the heart into right and left portions. The right portion of the heart receives and distributes the non-oxygenated blood, while the left portion is concerned with the reception and distribution of arterial or oxygenated blood. The heart has two chambers, one above the other and the other on each side of the septum. The upper chamber on each side is called an atrium. The thin – walled atria collect the blood flowing from the heart into the veins. Below each atrium is another chamber called the ventricles. The two ventricles pump the blood into the arteries. The walls of the ventricles are made of thick strong muscles. The right ventricle pumps the right blood only to the lungs, but the left ventricle pumps blood into the entire body. The left ventricle has walls three times as thick strong muscles.

Structures of the Respiratory System

Breathing

For you to be able to live, your body needs a constant supply of oxygen and nutrients. The oxygenation of blood in the lungs, the use of oxygen and production of carbon dioxide by the tissues and the removal of carbon dioxide from the blood in the lungs is called respiration.

Structures of the Respiratory System

Nose

Nose is the only externally visible part of the respiratory system. The air enters the nose through the external nares or nostrils. The interior of the nose consists of the nasal cavity is divided by a midline called nasal septum. The mucus lining the nasal cavity rests on blood-rich connective tissue that is well supplied with mucous glands. Dust and other foreign particles are filtered from the air by the hairs at the entrance of the channels and by cilia along the epithelial lining.


Pharynx


From the nasal cavities, air moves into the throat or pharynx, which is the entrance to both the respiratory tract and the digestive tract. The throat cavity is connected with the larynx leading to the lungs and with the esophagus (leading to the stomach).

Larynx (voice box)

The larynx consists of muscles and cartilages bound in elastic connective tissue. Part of the cartilage is attached to and supports the epiglottis a flap like structure that points upward and allows air to enter the larynx during breathing. The epiglottis sometimes referred to as the "guardian of the airways" protects the superior opening of the larynx. When food is swallowed, the epiglottis helps prevent the food from going down the wrong tube.

The larynx contains two true vocal cords used to produce the sounds of speech. This ability of the vocal folds to vibrate allows us to speak. The slit like passageway between the vocal folds is called glottis. Air forced through the glottis gives rise to sound waves. The stronger the air pressure on the vocal cords, the louder the sound produced. The greater muscle tensions on the cords, the higher the sound.

Trachea or windpipe:

Air from the larynx moves into the windpipe or trachea. It is 4 inches (10-12 cm) long. The trachea branches into two main airways called bronchi. After the main bronchi enter the lungs, they divide into two branches, and then the branches divide again many more times down to the smallest airways, the bronchioles.

Lung

Lung is an organ of external respiration (breathing) present in human beings. It is vital in maintaining life and acts as an exchange point where oxygen from the air is substituted for carbon dioxide in the blood that flows through the lung. The blood carries the oxygen to all parts of body and brings carbon dioxide back to the lungs. Lungs are large pyramid shaped organs weighing about 21/2 lbs. They are made up of masses of spongy tissue suspended in the chest cavity. They extend upward behind the collarbone, and rest on the powerful muscular diaphragm that separates the chest and abdominal cavities. The esophagus, the heart and the large blood vessels lie in the middle area, the mediastinum of the chest, between the two lungs. Each lung is divided into lobes: the left lung has two lobes and the right lung has three.


Amazing Senses

You are able to hear, feel, see, taste and smell things around you because of your amazing senses. With the touch sensors all over your skin you are able to identify what is cold, rough or even smooth.

To be able to learn about the world you are into you use your eyes. The pupil is the small black hole in the middle of your eye where light enters. This light travels to a special part called retina. from here, signals are sent to your brain. Your brain do the sorting of signals into the pictures that you are to see.

Sounds as invisible waves travel your ears through the eardrum and to your brain.

Your tongue has taste sensors too for you to be able to taste food and drink.



Digestive System

Digestive System

Digestion is the process by which food is broken down into smaller particles or molecules for use in the human body. This breakdown makes it possible for the smaller digestive particles to pass through the intestinal wall into the bloodstream. The simple digested food particles in the bloodstream are distributed to nourish all parts of the body. Digestion takes place in almost all parts of the alimentary canal where the food mixes with substances called enzymes, which speed up chemical reactions of the food. Fats, proteins and carbohydrates in foods are made up of very complex molecules and must be digested or broken down. When digestion is completed, starches and complex sugars are broken down into simple sugars, fats are digested into fatty acids and glycerin, and proteins are digested into amino acids. Simple sugars, fatty acids, glycerin and amino acids are digested foods, which can be absorbed into the blood stream.

You need to take in food for you to grow and be provided with energy. To stay healthy your body needs variety of food, exercises and sleep.

Miracles of Life

There are still so many amazing things we can say about our human body. .. from the union of the egg and sperm cell to zygote, fetus and the newborn baby. Its is now for you to answer:

Why you look the way you do? Why you do the things you do?

And I hope as you finished reading my hub , you would be enlightened about your body, value and respect not only your own body but other’s too.

      We are beyond blessed for we have a perfect systems that exist in our body that perform its function. The body system consists of 12 systems and we must be thankful that we have it, each of us have it. Do you ever imagine, how would you look like if you have no bones? If you have no skin? If you have no muscle? Or what if you don't have your eyes or all the parts of the body? I know even you, yourself cannot explain it because we do have it. So it is very important that we appreciate the system for it made us who we are now. Life would be so miserable and full of difficulties if even one of the system do not function well, so we must value it and treasure it by taking care of it. In the business world, the personnel with great skills made up a company, its hierarchy give its role or purpose in the firm. Accountants should know how the system works so they can immediately response to the clients.

      Our body is made of different systems. All the systems require support and coordination of other systems to form a living and healthy body. If any one of these systems is damaged, our body will become unstable and this lack of stability will ultimately lead to death. Accountants is one of the parts of a company they help the business run and each part in company has its own job just like in our body systems. It is important to study human body systems because to understand how our body systems work together.

      Our body is developing and still developing, so as time goes by our body structure changes. But we look the way we do because : in physical and internal appearance because of the genes that we are inherited to our parents, or just simply the human body is composed of different systems which is make us to be what are we now. In order to take care of all this given systems we must need to move and eat foods. So as a business man we can build Gym that may allow people to have their proper and daily exercises, a drugstore or a pharmacy where in we are going to provide the medicinal needs of the people for their maintainance , or a restaurant or a small canteen where in peple need and used to eat anytime and any where in order to survive. So this are the different implementation or realation of this topic to my ongoing future.

      Our body is made up of different kinds of organs with different functions. Some supports how we react. While other supports how we live etc. The reason why we look the way we do because as our internal organs work just like the brain which is the central command of our body. By thinking and reacting our body will carry out orders or do different kinds of task or jobs. But since human being have the same organs inside of each one of us but does differ from the size of the body of other people. We still all have the same organs inside of us. Which will explain why people or some people do the same things as others do. Other than that each organ does it's own job to keep our body up and running.

      human body is the entire structure of a human being and comprises a head, neck, trunk (which includes the thorax and abdomen), arms and hands, legs and feet. Every part of the body is composed of various types of cells, the fundamental unit of life.

      At maturity, the estimated average number of cells in the body is given as 37.2 trillion. This number is stated to be of partial data and to be used as a starting point for further calculations. The number given is arrived at by totalling the cell numbers of all the organs of the body and cell types.The composition of the human body is made up of a number of certain elements including carbon, calcium and phosphorus.

      For me our human body is like a robot, without battery, wire, or even parts can make it malfunction. our body is useless if there is a missing organ or body system. We depends ourselves in the organs inside our body, we need every single piece, strands of each organ. It is amazing if we will think why our organs work, who can command it? We can't explain it on ourselves so there is a science that can help us on it.

      Our body is a wonderful machine. It is complex. Our body is covered and protected by our skin. Aside from providing protection, the skin also functions as a sense organ, as an excretory organ, and as a heat regulator. And if the skin covers and protects our body, skeletal system supports our body. It also protects our delicate internal organs, supports body movement, stores and releases important minerals for our body, and produces blood cells. It was aided by our muscles and provide movement to our body. Most of of the muscles in our body work in pairs, as flexor and as extensor. One bends or lifts, and the other straightens or extends. Each parts of our body plays relevant role. We all need it to be able to have a great and beautiful body.

      Just like machines, our body consists of different systems which has many parts. Each part has their own significant role. Also, as machines needs fuel to operate, it is the same as our body. Food is what serves as our fuel for our systems to properly perform its functions.

      Studying our very own body can be very beneficial to us. Especially as I take up accountancy. Because with this course and eventually, will be my profession, I'll be dealing with people. And better understanding about our body can make me understand people's nature more.

      We, as a human being are the best creature in this world. God is a very wise that He created His sons with a fascinating things. We're composed of 12 systems that have their own functions and significance in our body. Each of the system conduct their own importance and contributions to our body. They have their own roles and duties with respect to their functions. Each of your organ systems are groups of organs that work together to carry out specific duties in your body. For example, your digestive system is an organ system that requires contributions from a number of organs, including your stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, pancreas, and gall bladder; all of these organs work together to digest the foods that you eat, and transfer the nutrients in the foods that you eat from your small intestine to your cells. Some organs contribute essential work to more than one organ system. For example, your pancreas plays an important role within your digestive system by secreting digestive enzymes into your small intestine, but your pancreas is also an irreplaceable component of your endocrine system, as it produces three important hormones that are secreted into your bloodstream and have system-wide effects. Finally, it's important to point out that all of your organ systems affect one another. We've already looked at one example of this: Your cardiovascular system keeps all of your other organ systems going by supplying blood, nutrients, and oxygen to all of your cells.

      All the systems require support and coordination of other systems to form a living and healthy human body. If any one of these systems is damaged, human body will become unstable and this lack of stability will ultimately lead to death. The instability caused by damage of one system cannot be stabilized by other systems because functions of one system cannot be performed by other systems. Knowledge of human body systems is very important for a medical professional because it is the base of all medical sciences and clinical practices. Although, generally, the structural aspects of human body systems are studied in anatomy and the functional aspects are studied in physiology but it is very important to have a coordination between the two subjects because knowledge of structure is incomplete without the knowledge of function and the knowledge of function is incomplete without the knowledge of structure.

      The Human Body is very complex. It is like a job. You have to do a million things in one day to make it through the day. The body uses nine systems to do all of those jobs. They all have separate functions, but some work together. Each system is also made up of organs. And it is an incredible system that is capable of working a multitude of diverse thought functions as well as muscle actions. Besides the bodies’ proficiency to move and reason. They all interact with each other in order for we to eat, sleep, walk, breath, etc. And there are many ways to care and protect the systems from the many different problems they can have.

      Like for the body's support, digestion, breathing, blood circulation, excretion, movement thinking and so on.

      All of these parts are relevant for us. We cannot say that we are able to live our lives easily without one of these organs.

In order to have a huge income in a business, they need to ensure that all of the departments are doing their job well. If one department had a trouble then the others may also be affected by it. All of the interrelated activities are connected when you are engaged in a business just like how our organs do their jobs on our bodies.

      Our body function because of the skeleton, muscles, bones, the heart, the different systems we have. We cannot move, breathe or live normally if one of these is broken or damage. That's why we need to protect all of this from harmful substances we take or do. In business we need to consider how the body will react to the product that we will produce because this will not be salable is it will just put the consumers life to danger.

      The organ systems of the body are the integumentary, muscular, skeletal, nervous, circulatory, lymphatic, respiratory, endocrine, urinary/excretory, reproductive and digestive. Our body has different parts and those parts play a big role in these systems, because they are the reason why our body was functioning properly and why we are capable of doing some stuffs like running, standing, eating and many more. The relevance of studying these systems in our course was as an accounting student, in the future we will enter in the business world where entrepreneurs thinks about a business that can supply the different needs of people. And by studying these systems we we're knowledgeable what the in demand business that will be suitable in their needs.

      BSA 1-3 INGALLA, Rolaine Ann B. It has been our curious mind which leads us to study the different body systems’ functions. It is amazing to think that one human body can do a lot of things just like eating, walking, thinking, breathing, sensing, to mention some. Each bodily system design to perform different tasks which if one malfunction, the entire body will be affected. To link these body systems to accountancy, all networks have corresponding numerical figure to maintain its normal state, in which an accountant may account. For instances, the normal blood pressure is 120/80 mmHg; the normal vision is 20/20; the normal weight of a newborn baby is between 5.5 to 10 pounds; and, normal blood sugar level is between 70 to 99 mg/dL. Still, accounting is applicable even in the field of biology.

Just like in accounting, when we make financial statements we need to consider and know all the informations about what happened to the money. Also when we worked,we will encounter different people that has its own role in the business that makes the business whole and to function normally. Because in the business it should have cooperation and helped by each other for the business to succeed.

      A system of human body means a collective functional unit made by several organs in which the organs work in complete coordination with one another. Organs cannot work alone because their are certain needs of every organ that need to be fulfilled and the organ itself cannot fulfill those needs. So all organs of human body need the support of other organs to perform their functions and in this way an organ system is formed. Human body is made of ten different systems. All the systems require support and coordination of other systems to form a living and healthy human body. If any one of these systems is damaged, human body will become unstable and this lack of stability will ultimately lead to death. The instability caused by damage of one system cannot be stabilized by other systems because functions of one system cannot be performed by other systems.

      The human body consists of many interacting systems. Each system contributes to the maintenance of homeostasis, of itself, other systems, and the entire body. A system consists of two or more organs, which are functional collections of tissue. Systems do not work in isolation, and the well-being of the person depends upon the well-being of all the interacting body systems. Some combining systems are referred to by their joint names such as the nervous system and the endocrine system known together as the neuroendocrine system.

      Human body, the physical substance of the human organism, composed of living cells and extracellular materials and organized into tissues, organs, and systems. Learning this is important because it’s all about us. It’s all about on we became on where or what we are now. Everything is related to one another. An organ cannot work alone because there are certain needs of every organ that need to be fulfilled and the organ itself cannot fulfill those needs. Each set of organ needs one another if one organ won’t work everything will be affected. With this a system will be created and just like an organ it cannot work alone. Then it all follows. Without these human won’t be the way we look that’s why it is important.

      The human body is a complex system made up of many different types of cells. Cells are the smallest units and the basic building blocks of the body's structures. A baby is born with all the cells needed to develop into a full-grown adult. Even though they are present in a child's body, some cells may not become fully mature until certain stages in the child's development (for example, puberty). The human body is made up of trillions of cells. Each cell has its own structure and specific function. Cells of the same type are grouped together to form tissues (such as the lining of the intestine or the surface of the skin). Several types of tissue together form an organ (such as the lungs, liver, bladder, heart and bones). A single organ can contain billions of cells. Even though these cells may not be identical, they work together to perform a specific function. A group of cells is called tissue. And a group of tissue is organ. Each of the body’s organs performs a specific function. Organs can also work as part of a group (organ system).

      Structure and function. The life of a structure manifests itself in its function, they condition each other. The structures of the organs of the body, for instance, are connected with their functions. Any breakdown in structure, any deformation of an organ leads to a distortion of the function. In the development of organisms changes begin with the reorganisation of an organ's function under the influence of changing conditions of life, while its structure may survive for a time without any substantial modification. However, change of activity sooner or later leads to a change in structure. Functional disturbances in organs precede their morphological distortions. The contradiction between the organism's new mode of life and its structure is resolved by a modification in the latter.

      Our body is very important. It represents our existence. The human skeletons are very important because it enables us to move. The heart is very important because it is our blood supplier. The blood is needed in our body for the nutrients to be distributed. The respiratory system is important because it allows us to eliminate carbon dioxide and enables us to gain oxygen that has to be transported by the blood throughout the body in order for our organs to function properly. These organs play important roles in our body such as sense of sight, hearing, tasting, touch, and smell.

      While digestion helps us in the extraction of food to get only the nutrients. And these nutrients are important to support the, like, batteries for the continuous "good-state" of our body.

      Whatever we do, affects our body. And so we have to take care of it.

      These are just like the financial statements which makes the business move and exist. These are the relations and importance of the skeletons, heart, respiratory system, digestive system, digestion and organs.

      The human body is made up of several organ systems that all work together as a unit to make sure the body keeps functioning. There are ten major organ systems in the body, each of which plays a different role in helping the body work.The study of the human body involves anatomy and physiology. The human body can show anatomical non-pathological anomalies known as variations which need to be able to be recognised. Physiology focuses on the systems and their organs of the human body and their functions. Many systems and mechanisms interact in order to maintain homeostasis.

      Why you look the way you do? Why you do the things you do? Human body is composed of different parts and each of them performs specific functions in order for us to maintain our lives. Such as the skeleton, movements, muscles and bones, heart, breathing, the five senses, and the digestive system. All of them is very essential, if we do not have one of those parts, then it is no sense.

      The relevance of this topic in our course, Accountancy, is that when we finished our studies amd find a job we need to know what are the things we should do. Not only in Accountancy but all courses. In everyday of our lives we breathe, we use our five senses, we move all around. In short, we are all alive.

      The human body is everything that makes up, well, you. The basic parts of the human body are the head, neck, torso, arms and legs.Our bodies consist of a number of biological systems that carry out specific functions necessary for everyday living.Humans have five vital organs that are essential for survival. These are the brain, heart, kidneys, liver, and lungs.Wealth, friends, property, if lost, can be acquired again, but the human body is not like that; once it goes, it can never be got back, no matter how hard one may try. Human life is most precious, highly sacred, beautiful and invaluable. It is therefore the prime duty of every individual to take the greatest possible care of the body. The body is an indispensable vehicle for experiences. Without it nothing can be done, not even a simple task. The human body is, therefore, more precious than worldly wealth and such other material acquisitions.

      The human body is more amazing than any machine on earth. Our brain works like a complex computer, telling all the other systems in our body what to do. The circulatory system which includes the heart and blood. It delivers nutrients to the organs and keeps things clean. The skin protects our body and keeps us from drying out. Bones give the body structure and strength. Muscles move the body. Our lungs take oxygen from the air for the body.

      Our bodies consist of a number of biological systems that carry out specific functions necessary for everyday living. Humans have five vital organs that are essential for survival. The human body is like a complex machine with many little parts that work by themselves or with other parts to perform specific fuctions. Sometimes it seems that our body has a mind of its own and it embarrasses us. In most cases, the things that your body does are normal but its important to know your body so you can recognize what is normal behavior or not. Accountants must record all the transactions in able to prepare a correct financial reports and so their clients can trust them because that was a proper behavior they must have.

      The human body is like a machine that can do many things but to these things, it needs many parts. Skeleton performs several functions like protection, support and keep the shapes of the body. Muscles are the one that makes our movement possible. Bones allows our body to move around. Heart pumps blood to help our body to function and remove waste product that we do not need. Respiratory system makes our body still alive because our body needs supply of oxygen and nutrients. Our amazing senses help us to live gracefully, to see the beautiful nature and many more. Digestive system helps us to digest our food and separate the liquid and solid to the food that we eat. Our body is really important to us, every part of it has their own use, and it is very unique because there are things that we can do and some are not that’s why we need to take care of it.

      The human body is everything that makes up, well, you. The basic parts of the human body are the head, neck, torso, arms and legs. Our bodies consist of a number of biological systems that carry out specific functions necessary for everyday living. The job of the circulatory system is to move blood, nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and hormones, around the body. It consists of the heart, blood, blood vessels,arteries and veins. The digestive system consists of a series of connected organs that together, allow the body to break down and absorb food, and remove waste. It includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus. The endocrine system consists of eight major glands that secrete hormones into the blood. The immune system is the body's defense against bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that may be harmful. The lymphatic system includes lymph nodes, lymph ducts and lymph vessels, and also plays a role in the body's defenses. The nervous system controls both voluntary action (like conscious movement) and involuntary actions (like breathing), and sends signals to different parts of the body. The body's muscular system consists of about 650 muscles that aid in movement, blood flow and other bodily functions.The reproductive system allows humans to reproduce. The male reproductive system includes the penis and the testes, which produce sperm. The respiratory system allows us to take in vital oxygen and expel carbon dioxide in a process we call breathing. The urinary system helps eliminate a waste product called urea from the body, which is produced when certain foods are broken down. The skin, or integumentary system, is the body's largest organ. It protects us from the outside world, and is our first defense against bacteria, viruses and other pathogens. This is what makes our body, and we must be more conscious and take good care of what God hath made us.

      Humans are composed of different body systems and each systems are composed of organs. Tissues were combined to form diffent organs such as brain, heart, lungs, liver, etc.; organs were combined to form body systems; and body systems made up the human body. Organs are very important for the body to function well. Organs/body systems works together, they have connection with each other. If one of the organ fails, there will be a major problem and it may affect other organs and other systems of the body. A healthy lifestyle takes a very great role in keeping the body, body systems and the organs healthy. Every part of our body, big and small, takes a very great role in making up our body. Each parts are important so we must keep them healthy.

      Skeletal system is all of the bones in the body and the tissues such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage that connect them.

      Your teeth are also considered part of your skeletal system but they are not counted as bones. Your teeth are made of enamel and dentin. Enamel is the strongest substance in your body.

      How does the Skeletal System help us?

      Support

      The main job of the skeleton is to provide support for our body. Without your skeleton your body would collapse into a heap. Your skeleton is strong but light. Without bones you'd be just a puddle of skin and guts on the floor.

      Protection

      Your skeleton also helps protect your internal organs and fragile body tissues. The brain, eyes, heart, lungs and spinal cord are all protected by your skeleton. Your cranium (skull) protects your brain and eyes, the ribs protect your heart and lungs and your vertebrae (spine, backbones) protect your spinal cord.

      Movement

      Bones provide the structure for muscles to attach so that our bodies are able to move. Tendons are tough inelastic bands that hold attach muscle to bone.

      The human body is composed of organs that are part of different body systems that allow the human body to work. The design of our body is complex as well as the different tissues that combine to make the different organs such as the heart and lungs. In addition, the organs that combine into systems such as the skeletal system or digestive systems need to be explored, since these systems works in groups to serve the needs of the human body. Human bodies vary a little from person to person, not only in the visible aspects of size and shape but also in the placement of internal organs. Human bodies, however, do follow a general pattern. No part of the human body works in isolation; each part does its job, day and night, supported and aided by all the other organs.

      THE RELEVANCE of this topic in Tourism is that we have to look beautiful and presentable with our guest. That's why we have to protect our body. And in our field all our body parts were used. So we have to be conscious about it.
