Summary
With each inhalation, human beings take in potentially lethal microbes, while life-sustaining sunlight can also cause irreparable damage to DNA. This program explains how the body defends itself against these and other threats. Viewers are introduced to a bull jumper whose muscles give him the strength to avoid a violent death, a 3-year-old whose internal army fights off the flu, and a man who gets injured constantly to earn his living. The video also includes incredible footage of Richard Edwards' radical double hand transplant as it shows how surgeons use medical expertise to exploit the body's natural healing abilities
