Health News Digest: The Human Body

We bring the latest in health news. This week, health producers Tee Shiao Eek and Tina Carmillia introduce us to the new organs in our human body: The mesentery and the interstitium. Additionally, BBC reported that human cells only make up 43% of the body's total cell count. So what makes humans human? And what impact could a better understanding of our anatomy have on medicine?
