Ever wonder how much you're worth?Well, we know all humansare priceless, but seriously, ever wonder how much moneythe elements found in your body are worth?Well...when we total the monetary value of the elements in ourbodies and the value of the average person's skin, we arriveat a net worth of $4.50!This value is, however, subject to change, due to stock marketfluctuations. Since the studies leading to this conclusionwere conducted by the U.S. and by Japan respectively, it mightbe wise to consult the New York Stock Exchange and the NikkeiIndex before deciding when to sell!The U.S. Bureau of Chemistry and Soils invested many a hard-earned tax dollar in calculating the chemical and mineralcomposition of the human body, which breaks down as follows:65% Oxygen18% Carbon10% Hydrogen3% Nitrogen1.5% Calcium1% Phosphorous0.35% Potassium0.25% Sulfur0.15% Sodium0.15% Chlorine0.05% Magnesium0.0004% Iron0.00004% IodineAdditionally, it was discovered that our bodies contain tracequantities of fluorine, silicon, manganese, zinc, copper,aluminum, and arsenic. Together, all of the above amounts toless than one dollar!Our most valuable asset is our skin, which the Japaneseinvested their time and money in measuring. The method theImperial State Institute for Nutrition at Tokyo developedfor measuring the amount of a person's skin is to take anaked person, and to apply a strong, thin paper to everysurface of his body. After the paper dries, they carefullyremove it, cut it into small pieces, and painstakingly totalthe person's measurements. Cut and dried, the average personis the proud owner of fourteen to eighteen square feet ofskin, with the variations. Basing the skin's value on theselling price of cowhide, which is approximately $.25 persquare foot, the value of an average person's skin is about$3.50. Please check out John 3:16
Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolonglife. Is this true, Doc?A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it,don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually.Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that'slike saying you can extend the life of your car by driving itfaster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.
