And thus begins the most revolutionary biology course in history.
How cells regulate their contents and communicate with one another via mechanisms within the cell membrane.
Why plants are so freaking amazing - discussing their evolution, and how their cells are both similar to & different from animal cells.
The "economy" of cellular respiration and the various processes whereby our bodies create energy in the form of ATP.

That is, they view themselves as larger or smaller than they really are.
This has implications for people who fail to recognize that they are overweight, and thus are less likely to take steps to lose weight, increasing their risk of diabetes and hypertension (Powell et al., 2010).

Body misperception is often attributed to exposure to unrealistic body ideals (thin for women, lean and muscular for men; Furnham et al., 2002), such as those presented in the mass media. (1999) found that 94% of covers in a survey of 69 American women’s magazines featured a thin-idealized subject.
The converse effect is shown for adaptation to wide bodies. Carotenoid and melanin pigment coloration affect perceived human health.
