The Benefits Of Walking

  • The human body is made to walk.

  • Walking 30 minutes a day cuts the rate of people becoming diabetic by more than half and it cuts the risk of people over 60 becoming diabetic by almost 70 percent.

  • Walking cuts the risk of stroke by more than 25 percent.

  • Walking reduces hypertension. The body has over 100,000 miles of blood vessels. Those blood vessels are more supple and healthier when we walk.

  • Walking cuts the risk of cancer as well as diabetes and stroke.

Photographs that reveal an alien planet? No - the breathtaking animated simulations of the world within the HUMAN BODY

  • Animators at the XVIVO studio have produced stunning short movies of the internal workings of the human body
  • The Connecticut-based artists have magnified some areas of the human body by up to 10 million times
  • Produced as part of a project to help students and scientists understand the human anatomy in a new way
  • Amongst the areas captured are bone marrow, the components of a single cell and individual virus particles

Animators have created remarkable pictures that resemble an alien landscape from the latest science fiction blockbuster, but are in fact ultra-realistic representations of the inside of a human body.

Produced by studio XVIVO in Hartford, Connecticut in the U.S., the movies magnify areas of our insides by up to 10 million times.

The 3D images were produced as part of a project aimed to help students and scientists understand the human body in new and creative ways.

XVIVO compiled the collection for institutions including Harvard, Pfizer, and the United States Department of Defence and used replications of electron micrographs, medical illustrations and photographs to recreate snapshots of parts of the body at a molecular level.
