Why do humans sweat?

imageSweat is your body's natural way of cooling down. When you get really hot from the bright sun or from running around outside, the tiny pores on your body open up to let heat out – and this is when you sweat! And, as the sweat comes out of your body, you cool off!

Why is water good for you?

Glass of water

People, animals and plants all need clean water to live. Infact more plants and animals live in water than on land. Blood is mostly water, and your muscles, lungs, and brain all contain a lot of water. Your body needs water to regulate body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to all your organs. Water also transports oxygen to your cells, removes waste, and protects your joints and organs.

Why is blood red?

Red blood cells

Red blood cells are red only because they contain a protein chemical called hemoglobin which is bright red in color. Hemoglobin contains the element Iron, making it excellent for transporting oxygen and carbon dioxide.
