Farts, Vomit, and Other Functions That Help Your Body

by Kristi Lew

Part of a Series: Nasty (but Useful!) Science.

Recent publishing seasons have seen several books that deal with unmentionable bodily functions. This one goes a bit further than most, providing not only the “eew!”-factor but also real science and kid-friendly extras such as why watching someone else vomit makes us throw up, and why poop doesn’t just drop out. Full-page anatomical diagrams, microphotographs (earwax, anyone?), and regular photographs of nasties such as scabs illuminate our grossest functions. The print further reading will aid those completing reports, as will the publisher’s webliography of related, vetted sites, available at FactHound.com.
