How the Body Meets Its Need for Oxygen


On another episode of ID the Future, biologist Ray Bohlin continues yesterday’s conversation with physician Howard Glicksman on the design of the human body. They now turn to examine the subject of hemoglobin and the body’s need to have enough of it to transport sufficient oxygen to the tissues.

Finely tuned and exquisitely engineered, this system gave our ancestors enough oxygen not only to stay alive but to thrive in the face of a hostile environment with its many challenges. Listen to the podcast here.

Dr. Glicksman is the author of an extended series of posts at Evolution News, “The Designed Body.”
