The skeletal system of the body is composed of bones which help in the normal posture in a human being. This skeletal system helps in different types of movement with the help of the muscular system. It is composed of bones to which are attached muscles, tendons and ligaments. The primary function of skeletal system is in the movement of different body parts and also in protection of the viscera of the body (Hall & Guyton 2006).
Muscular system is the system which helps the bones to move in accordance to their contraction and relaxation. They also help in involuntary movements taking place inside the body. Muscular system is made up of muscles tendons and ligaments. Muscles are of three types respectively known as cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle. These three types of muscles serve different functions in the body. Skeletal muscle are voluntary muscles which are under the control of the human beings whereas smooth muscles are not. Cardiac muscle are located in the heart which help in the contraction and relaxation of heart (Hall & Guyton 2006).
Nervous system is a system which contains specialized cells located all over the body which help in all the bodily functions. The components of nervous system include the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system contains of the brain and spinal cord whereas the peripheral nervous system contains the neurons which help in connecting the body parts to the central nervous system. Both of these systems coordinate their activities together in order to produce the desired effect by the body (Snell 2004).
A normal human being is gifted with five basic senses which have different functions. These five senses are named Taste, Vision, Hearing, Smell, and Touch. The smell of taste helps an individual to perceive taste of different substances through taste buds. Vision helps an individual to perceive the world through eyes i.e. see

The Ethics in Organ Donation Organ donation is a sensitive issue in the United States as ethicists and health care practitioners continue to question the allocation of available transplant organs in terms of fairness and better outcomes principles. The decision to allocate available transplant organs is not easy especially when there is severe shortage of organ donors.
The normal body functions are regulated mostly by our central nervous system. The specific pathways of regulation are however different based on the system affected. The autonomic nervous system has a major function in managing the normal processes of the cardiovascular system with the interplay of pressure, volume, and chemical receptor signals.
The thing about toxicants is that there are many different potential, forms, means of exposure, plus reactions due to a combination of exposures that can make determining the safest levels like fitting together a puzzle where the pieces keep changing.
Successful inter-human allotransplants have a relatively long history; the operative skills were present long before the necessities for post-operative survival were discovered. Rejection and the side effects of preventing rejection (especially infection and nephropathy) were, are, and may always be the key problem.
While certain groups of people would not permit themselves to become the selfless donors of organs during their lifetimes or upon death, there are others that do not allow themselves to use donated organs because of individual beliefs, regardless of whether we consider these puritanical or not.
Organ donation should remain a choice, but this choice must be more informed.
Around 100,000 individuals are on a waiting list for an organ transplant (Mayo Clinic Staff n.d.). A few lucky ones get an organ, but many die before receiving
The donors also benefit from donating their tissues or organs. However, organ donation is also associated with some challenges that may result in health complications or loss of life. It is as a result of the effects
d the ways in which the popularity of the practice has led to increased reliance on organ transplantation, particularly among patients with incurable medical conditions. The paper shows that the effectiveness and reliability of the organ transportation practice is highly
