Inside the Living Body

Inside the Living Body is a National Geographic Channel documentary that reveals the life story of the human body from first cry to final breath. We are made up of around 100 trillion cells; we change our skin about every 4 weeks, shedding as many as 30,000 dead skin cells every minute; we breathe, on average, 700 million breaths in a lifetime. Using computer graphics and advanced medical technology, this documentary shows how our bodies function, grow, and mature from infancy through puberty, adulthood, and old age.
