medical animation of An animation of an 8 week embryo inside the womb. medical illustration of Red Blood cells live for around 120 days and are produced in the marrow of the bones.  They contain Hemoglobin, a protein that stores the oxygen for the body to survive. medical illustration of The human body is made up of 11 organ systems, each doing a specific job. medical illustration of This is a human embryo at approximately 8 weeks old inside a woman’s womb. The amniotic sac protects the growing baby while the organs and muscles are beginning to work. medical illustration of These are Kinesin (a motor protein), and we are watching them walk along tracks (Microtubule) inside the cell. Their job is to tug along sacks (vesicles) filled with materials to be excreted from the cell. 
In this case, they are simply walking all the cell’s waste to the membrane, where it’s discarded outside of the cell.

medical illustration of T cells are part of the immune system.  They help by tagging pathogens and warn of an attack on the body. medical illustration of A Macrophage is part of the immune system. 

They patrol around the body, entering affected areas, engulfing and destroying bacteria and other pathogens.

They also act as a janitor, cleaning up dead cells and other debris around the body, keeping it clean and healthy. medical illustration of Prescription drugs are made to cure, treat, and prevent disease in many interesting ways. 

Most medicines today are artificially produced by scientific study and testing. Scientists can isolate all the useful chemicals from plants and animals and over time produce a drug targeted to a particular ailment. medical illustration of upon entering the egg, the outer shell seals up, the head of the sperm unites with the nucleus of the egg, and within days.. A single cell will multiply, and keep multiplying to eventually form an embryo. medical illustration of Melanoma is a skin cancer developing within the melanocytes (pigment cells). This form of skin cancer may spread to other parts of the body (metastasize), potentially causing a serious illness or death. 

What is cancer?
It’s a group of abnormal cells dividing uncontrollably, eventually becoming a tumor.
medical illustration of red blood cells carry and deliver packages of oxygen to all the organs throughout the body. 

Red blood cells are made in the bone marrow and circulate the body for around 4 months before dying, and it's the iron in the blood mixing with the oxygen that’s gives it the red color. medical illustration of As the main part of the Central Nervous System, the brain takes information from the Sensory Neurons (like the nerves in finger tips) and relays it to Motor Neurons (muscles). 

It’s our cerebral cortex that separates us from other mammals, giving us language, thought, memory, awareness, perception… 
medical illustration of Sensory neurons for example, deal with touch and pain. They can be paired with a motor neurons, which get the muscles going… 
and the Interneurons pretty much act as a router between the different neurons. medical illustration of The cell surface is a membrane layer that protects the cell from the outside elements. medical illustration of The vertebrae interlock in a flexible way that protects the spinal cord while preserving the ability to bend and twist. 
 
The human spinal column is made up of 33 bones
• 7 vertebrae in the cervical region,
• 12 in the thoracic region,
• 5 in the lumbar region,
• 5 in the sacral region and
• 4 in the coccygeal region
medical illustration of An ulcer can form in the small intestine and could be caused by your diet. 
They can lead to breaks in the lining of your stomach potentially leading to other problems. medical illustration of The basic function is to protect the cell from it's surroundings. medical illustration of Bacteria come in many different shapes and sizes, but three basic shapes are spherical, rod and spiral. 
These are H. pylori and swim using flagella, propeller like appendages. After they enter your body, they settle comfortably in your Digestive Track. Over time they can cause ulcers in the lining of your stomach. 
Common ways this bacteria spreads is from are water and food, along with poor sewage systems medical illustration of A stem cell can essentially be programmed to become any cell in the body. 

This is a Single Cell out of trillions that make up the body, and each cell is made from many different parts called organelles. 

They’re like organs for the cell, and help convert nutrients from what you eat and drink into energy, and some cells divide to help replenish the older, unhealthier, dying cells medical illustration of DNA carrying genetic information starts wrapping around protein molecules called histones found in the nucleus. 

They continue to coil around and around eventually forming chromosomes.
 
It’s a process that combines mom and dad genes together. 

Without packaging, the DNA strands would be too long to fit inside cells
