Remember the biology class you had in high school? Well, even if you do, lots of new knowledge about how the body works helps us to understand it now better than ever.

Body Basics is a collection of articles for parents that explain just how each body system, part, and process is necessary for living. Use this medical library to learn more about how the body works, what basic human anatomy is, and what happens when parts of the body don't function properly.
