Okay so since Holyoke Walsh loves the human anatomy i decided to put a song on here called the bone dance. It is performed by Miley Cyrus and it's kind of catchy

THE BONE DANCE!

Everybody knows the bones, just had to find a way
Everybody knows what I'm talkin' 'bout, that's how I'll get an A

My body's many parts, and this is where it starts
Phalangies I have ten, And metatarsals then
I got some tarsals too, I'll put 'em in my shoe
(She's tellin' the truth)
The fibula is next, according to my text
Then comes the tibia, that ain't no fibia
And now I'm up to my knee, yeah yeah yeah
That's the patella to me

Chorus: We're doing the bone dance,
you study the answers again and again til I get it right
We're doing the bone dance,
You dance and you learn it, and we won't mess up this test
We'll get it perfect.

Tibia
Fibula
Clavical rib
we call this the humerous,
and thats no fib

And now I take it home, with the cranial bone
It might be crazy, but we learn that way
Temporal and frontal too and now we're finally through
That makes two hundred and six, I've found a way that clicks
Bone thugs in da house
(Repeat Chorus)
WORD!

" Type 1 diabetes occurs when certain specialized parts of the pancreas,are destroyed and no longer produce insulin", which is very imortant because insulin helps the body to "capture energy from the food we eat". It usualy develops in childhood and adolescence "hence Juvenile diabetes". The causes for type 1 diabetes are unknown. The symptoms for type 1 diabetes are:
-frequent urination in large amounts,
-excessive thirst,
