Part of being responsible is to know how your body operates and how to keep it functioning properly. If your body is not performing properly, it is hard to do your job, to help your community grow sustainably and to help others in need. It is especially important for students to learn:

a. How eating too many nutrients can not only take resources away from others, but can actually make your own body malfunction.

b. How eating certain foods can cause heart disease and diabetes and

c. How airborne pollutants can evade your body's defenses and cause respiratory disease.

The Body Works unit works hand in hand with our year long sustainability emphasis. It helps students develop a more grounded view of how their bodies work. It points out how it is each citizen's responsibility to balance their personal wants with tour pressing need to make and maintain a sustainable environment for us all!
