Fascinating article. However, halfway through I started to question the bowl of tortellini I was slowly shoveling into my mouth.

Great story for Halloween. I think everybody should have the chance to see a dissected Human body, to see where the parts go and what they look like. That thing that you call your stomach on the outside? That is really your intestines-- your stomach is much higher up.

At any rate I think as owner/operators we should get to know our bodies better. If you see what fat looks like, blackened lungs, clogged arteries, it might make you question your habits.
