Learn about how bone cells regulate minerals in our bodies
FACTS: Your bones are made primarily of an intricate edifice of mineralized tissue laid down by bone cells like a coral reef.
At first, the work is exciting and productive, as young cuboidal osteoblasts dutifully secrete the osteoid tissue that forms the bone matrix. Unfortunately, as the bone is constructed, these cells soon find themselves imprisoned in their own handiwork, buried alive!
In order to survive, these now mature osteocytes occupy little spaces called lacunae and reach out desperately to nearby cells with thin extensions (or cytoplasmic processes) into little channels (or canaliculi) in the bone. When they make contact, they form a living network inside the bone that can exchange nutrients and waste. They can also communicate about which parts of the bone are being stressed and need to be strengthened – as well as determine which parts should be left to decay.
Which may create a glimmer of hope: as osteoclasts begin resorbing the bone matrix, the material covering the osteocytes is reduced. However, as bone stresses are constantly shifting, bones are typically remade, strengthening them and dooming the osteocytes to their fate.
Breast Cancer affects 1 in every 8 women, but early detection and proper screening can help ensure the best outcomes. Our Breast Cancer doll is a good reminder to schedule annual health exams including mammograms.

The colon is the main section of digestion, looping up, across and down like a horseshoe. The colon absorbs water for reuse by the body and ferments fiber with the help of trillions of friendly microbes. These microbiome bacteria are an integral part of your digestive system, even acting as the gatekeepers of your metabolism.
FACTS: The final stages of digestion occur in the large intestine. The colon is the main section, looping up, across and down like a horseshoe. Other intestinal sections are the cecum, appendix and rectum. The colon absorbs water for reuse by the body and ferments fiber with the help of trillions of friendly microbes, your microbiome. These bacteria are an integral part of your digestive system, even acting as the gatekeepers of your metabolism.

FACTS: Although gangrene may sound like a hazard of jungle exploits and military campaigns, the gruesome decay and death of soft body tissue that characterizes the condition can happen to anyone anywhere. There are two common types of gangrene: dry and wet. Dry gangrene occurs when blood flow is interrupted to part of the body. Affected areas dry out and eventually blacken as tissue is slowly mummified. Dry gangrene typically occurs in the fingers and toes, often in the elderly or in those living with diabetes.
Wet gangrene occurs when infection accompanies the interrupted blood flow. Bacteria such as clostridium perfringens, which produce toxic gases that can bubble up under the skin, are often implicated.
• HAV is spread primarily by unsanitary food and water • HBV is transmitted in bodily fluids and can cause chronic liver disease • HCV is perhaps the most dangerous: no vaccine is available • HDV occurs only in the presence of HBV • HEV is relatively mild and non-chronic • HFV and HGV are newly identified; their connection with liver disease is debated
Perfect teaching tool and gift for anyone who enjoys balancing their bodily fluids, removing wastes, controlling the production of red blood cells and promoting health!
FACTS: Your two kidneys are large filters within the urinary system. These fist-sized, bean-shaped organs perform many useful functions. Their main job is filtering blood to remove impurities and excess water. Over 1 liter of blood flows through the kidneys each minute!
Kidneys also release hormones and help the body maintain a proper balance of water, sodium and other chemicals. Each kidney contains up to a million tiny filtering units called nephrons. Inside each nephron are tubules and glomerulus.

FACTS: Meningitis is technically an inflammation of the meninges, or the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. It can be extremely dangerous.
There are a number of viral and bacterial causes of meningitis, but Neisseria meningitidis is the most common cause of the more serious bacterial meningitis in children (who are most susceptible to the disease), and one of the most common in adults. It is quite contagious, and often spreads through groups of close quartered individuals such as children in daycare-settings, college students, and military personnel.
The signature symptoms of meningitis include a severe headache and stiff neck – which, in extreme cases, can cause sufferers to arch backwards – as well as fevers and chills, nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and sometimes purple or red splotches on the skin.
