Summary This program illustrates that the food we eat is the source of energy for the cells in our body. Through the digestive process food is reduced to its chemical components and made available to each and every cell. An elite athlete, a diabetic and a recovered anorexic talk openly about the effects of their diet on their bodies.Vital Systems is a six part series which looks at the major systems of the human body. These include the muscular, skeletal, nervous, endocrine, respiratory, digestive, urinary and immune systems. Through the use of clinical images, graphic illustrations and interviews, the programs provide students with an understanding of how these systems work together in sustaining the millions of cells that make up the human body.**Please note that this program/series has been created from masters kindly provided by DECS Tape Services in South Australia. These recordings have been collected over a period dating back to the early 1990s and as such, the picture quality may be of variable standard.**
