Discovery Health Takes a Revolutionary Look into the Human Body With an Original Series, BODY IN NUMBERS

- Four-Week Programming Event Premieres Wednesday, September 3, at 9 PM (ET/PT) and Continues Every Wednesday in September -

SILVER SPRING, Md., July 31 -- The human body is often referred to as the world's most incredible machine, but how much do we really know about what our bodies must do -- every second of every day -- to keep us alive? Prepare to be fascinated by your own body after viewing the groundbreaking television event that combines a stunning mix of high-tech graphics and live action to illustrate what makes us move, think and grow. The four-part series, BODY IN NUMBERS, premieres on Wednesday, September 3, at 9 PM (ET/PT) on Discovery Health.

BODY IN NUMBERS decodes the body's vital statistics -- showing how the heart pumps about 1 million barrels of blood during an average lifetime, and that the fastest sneeze ever recorded was clocked at 100 miles per hour. The series makes a profound impact by juxtaposing the human body with everyday objects and actions, creating a new level of understanding that will change attitudes and instill wonder. Viewers will be presented with illuminating figures such as:

-- There are 62,000 miles of blood vessels in your body -- the same distance it would take to circle the world twice over.

-- The surface area of a human lung is equal to that of a tennis court.

-- Humans can see more than 7 million different colors -- equal to a paint chart 21.75 miles long, or equivalent to 11/2 times the length of Manhattan.

BODY IN NUMBERS explores the body's extraordinary abilities and secrets with the numbers that lie behind everything we do. Have you ever thought about just how we develop from a fertilized embryo to a newborn? Or how eating and drinking change our physiology? Based on amazing facts and calculations, this series will trace the consequences of our everyday actions and explain how our bodies react and adapt.

From conception to birth, from adulthood to old age, the human body is a remarkable machine that carries on functions every second of every day that we never stop to think about. By unlocking the secrets of the human body, BODY IN NUMBERS will revolutionize the way we think about ourselves and the things we do.

BODY IN NUMBERS is produced for Discovery Health by Touch Productions LTD. Executive producer for Discovery Health is Alon Orstein. Malcolm Brinkworth is executive producer for Touch Productions LTD.
