Body of Evidence: The Respiratory System
The human respiratory system—of which the lungs are the largest component—is the most high-tech air purification and conditioning system on earth. Although we don’t normally think about how smoothly and effectively our lungs work unless they start to malfunction, practically every human is launched into life with two of them!

Finely tuned, yet sturdy enough for 90 years or longer on this earth, our lungs are ventilated with voluntary muscles about 20 times every minute and yet we breathe all day without even thinking about it.

Man has never designed a workable substitute for blood. Blood plasma carries nutrients; red blood cells bind life-sustaining oxygen to hemoglobin; white blood cells combat infections and diseases; small cell fragments called platelets patch up holes in our blood vessels and keep us from bleeding to death.

Part 1: 38 minutes. Part 2: 33 minutes

Review: Body of Evidence December 15, 2011
Reviewer: Debra from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
The DVD consists of a lecture by Dr. David Menton to two high school looking students (one male, one female).  That felt a little forced and awkward, and the students appeared fairly uncomfortable throughout most of the lecture.

In spite of the stilted feel of the "class" we did get a lot out of the presentation.  The suggested ages are 12 and up... and I would tend to agree with the publisher on that.  My ten and younger set quickly lost interest.

What did we think?  We quite often commented with an, "I didn't know that!" throughout the video.  We eventually decided that we really liked Dr. Morton.  But it did take a bit to get past the presentation with the two stiff students.  

I will seriously consider other DVDs in this series.
