Overview: The human body is a great conserver of it's supplies and energy. It takes in air and food, separates out the useful parts of each (oxygen and nutrients), delivers those raw materials to each cell in the body, and recycles or eliminates the wastes created by the formation of energy. The systems involved in these processes (respiratory, circulatory and digestive) are efficient and effective -- very impressive stuff.
