I got the following information from the Museum of Science and Industry of Chicago website. It is very fascinating stuff and reminds me of how great God is.
He made man in a marvelous way. Our bodies are built so well that they can take abuse sometimes for years before finally giving in to sickness. Then when we change our lifestyle and start to concentrate on healthy living, many times the body will repair itself.
It is totally amazing at how complex God made you and me.
How can thousands of blood vessels all work together in perfect order for the heart to beat correctly 24 hours a day?
How can we have a small intestine that is 20 to 23 feet long and a large one 5 feet that works in perfect order for the food we eat to move smoothly through, with the body taking the nutrients it needs and the rest going to the correct place to be disposed of?
How can the brain know exactly what the body needs at any time and either make corrections or send an impulse for a certain thing to happen?
We are wonderfully and magnificently made, and no man could have ever been smart enough to do that. Only the one true Living God could have done it. He made the world and everything in it perfectly.

The spinal cord is less then two feet in length and is the same diameter as your index finger, yet it contains over 10 billion nerve cells.
Blood type A can receive blood types A & O safely. Blood type B can receive types B & O. Blood type O can receive only O blood but are “universal donors” because O is acceptable to all other blood types. Blood type O is the most common blood type worldwide.
