            Can you imagine anything more gross than the human body? Seriously, inside and out, it is DISGUSTING! Blood and guts are bad enough, but there is so much more. We burp and fart.

And bodies are a breeding ground for germs, bacteria, fungus, lice and more. The Human Body Survival Guide will take you on a weird and wonderful journey and teach you everything you wanted to know about our bodies, and some stuff you didn't want to know! Ever wondered what the biggest organ in the body is? Whether your nose and ears continue to grow after you die? Or what a healthy poo looks like? Hold on to your insides . . . Here we GO!
