Been reading Bill Bryson's book The Body: A Guide For Occupants, and learning more about the wonders of life than ever before. How we take so much for granted in the powerhouse of activity performed within by our organs, limbs, stomach and brains, without so much as a conscious thought.
Bryson has a brilliant talent at condensing into layman's terms complicated scientific and medical knowledge, that even my own lesser powerhouse of a brain can understand.
At this moment, and throughout our lives, as well as the body parts I've mentioned, we also contain trillions of micro-organisms and cells, continually beavering away to make sure we combat countless micro invaders to keep us healthy, at the same time providing us with renewal and nourishment.
Sections relating to dietary health, diseases, viruses and bacteria are all featured, along with intriguing information about how our body parts work in unison to make us the unique, functioning individuals that we are. The Body is also available as an audiobook. Well worth a read or listen.
In another reference to audiobooks, I still have UK codes available for my Audible book Deadly Island Retreat. Please leave me your email address on my website contact page if you'd like one or both. Sample links below. And take care in this awful Covid pandemic.
