Summary
    Understanding the Mysteries of Practical Human Biology for Non-Scientists provides students with an accessible overview of the structure and function of the human body. The text provides highly practical information students can use to make healthful choices, better understand news and media about nutrition, medications, medical devices, and procedures, and grow their knowledge about genetic or infectious diseases.

    The text features coverage of bones, muscles, nerves and hormones, heart and blood vessels, lungs, digestive organs, and kidneys, with emphasis on how they all work together for balance and health. Students also learn about male and female anatomy in the context of reproduction. Readers explore aspects of life, such as coordination of the musculoskeletal, nervous, and endocrine systems, and various responses of the human immune system.

    Providing readers with foundational knowledge that can help them make informed decisions related to their lifestyle and personal health, Understanding the Mysteries of Practical Human Biology for Non-Scientists is ideal for elective science courses for non-majors, as well as introductory anatomy and physiology courses.
