Human anatomy can be confusing with all those muscles, tendons, bones, veins and arteries. Did you know there are 26 bones in the human foot alone? Fortunately, these educational infographics make it easy to remember what goes where.

  1. Facts about the Human Body infograph is a colorful list of random facts like: Human DNA contains 80,000 genes, humans are the only animals able to draw straight lines, and the total weight of bacteria living in the human body is 4.41 lbs. That last one might just be too much information, even for an infograph.
  2. Remember the game “Operation”? This infographic uses the popular game picture of the unfortunate man with the big red nose to educate people about the human body. Fun facts include: A fingernail takes 6 months to grow from base to tip, human thigh bones are stronger than concrete, and humans have as many hairs per square inch as chimpanzees. After looking at this infographic, you’ll know more than enough to perform operations yourself – in the game at least.
  3. Human Subway infograph is like a subway map, showing all the routes, ins and outs of the body. Follow the lines through the urinary system, the lymphatic system, and the nervous system, but don’t forget to stop along the way at points of interest.

  6. How bones work is a little more complicated than “the leg bone’s connected to the thigh bone. The thigh bone’s connected to the…” well, you’ll find out if you see this infographic. The How Bones Work infographic is a colorful picture of the main parts of bones, marrow, cartilage and cortical bones.
