Body of Evidence: The Cardiovascular System
The cardiovascular system (the heart and blood vessels) is the most vitally important organ system in the body. Your heart pumps blood, and your blood vessels channel and deliver nutrient-rich oxygenated blood throughout your body.

The heart is a pump about the size of your fist. In your lifetime, this little pump beats about 2 billion times (without stopping) and pumps over 100 million gallons of blood. This blood travels through over 60 thousand miles of blood vessels—arteries, arterioles, capillaries, and veins—to bring nourishment and oxygen to all parts of your body. You may be surprised to learn that the heart is actually two pumps: one pumps blood to the lungs and the other pumps blood to the rest of the body.

The Bible says the “blood is the life.” Indeed, our life critically depends on about 30 trillion blood cells consisting of red cells that exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide and white cells that help to prevent infection and reject foreign materials.

Part 1: 48 minutes. Part 2: 37 Minutes

    Body of Evidence review by For One Another December 21, 2011
    Reviewer: Cindy from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
    My 13 year old daughter said it was a good presentation that was easy to follow.  The study guide questions were answered plainly.  Not being much into the study of the human body, this is high praise from her ;)

    PROS:  
    Each topic can be purchased separately
    Dr. Menton, the instructor, is well-versed in the topics
    Great props are used to show what is being discussed
    Dr. Menton's passion for the design of the body is evident
    Creation based
    Presentation is easy to follow and understand
    Any new terminology is explained
    Guide book questions follow the lecture.  Answers are plainly stated

    CONS:
    A bit "cheesy" having 2 students in 'class'.  I would prefer it to be a lecture type as if he were talking directly to the ones viewing the DVD.
    There is mention of previous topics with the assumption that they have been viewed.  Causes some confusion.

    This is a series I would highly recommend.  I feel much can be learned from Dr. Menton.  He talks on a very understandable level with ease and interest.
