What is the internal body cavity?
An internal body cavity is a space in the body that does not contain something, much like a cavity in a tooth is where the tooth has rotted away. There are several examples of this: your sinuses are internal body cavities - they are an open space in your body. There is a body cavity in your chest as well surrounding your lungs and heart.

What would be some disadvantages of bones being solid with no marrow cavity within?
Well, first off, your marrow cavity is where blood is made. Without fresh blood, your immune system would crash, and, in the case of an accident, your body could not restore lost blood. Secondly, a fractured bone is much more painful than a bone with a clean break. If the marrow cavity was gone, then more fractures would occur than breaks would.

Is it bad to have air in your chest often?
This depends on what you mean by "chest." Air in your chest cavity is usually caused by a sucking chest wound, most commonly found in deep puncture wounds to the abdomen. The space in the abdominal cavity is filled with air from the outside environment, putting external pressure on the lungs from inside the body, making it more difficult for the lungs to fill with air. Eventually, the lungs would cease to function due to so much pressure and the individual would suffocate without emergency treatment. If you mean "chest" as in your lungs, than no. You want air there, all the time - it's good for you...I promise.
Why do men get muscle on his chest like a woman?
Everyone has muscles on their chest. Those muscles are there to help you breathe. They help your chest expand and contract when you breathe. If you are an athlete or an opera singer, you need all the air in your lungs you can get. In your training, you develop chest muscles. The fat lady in the opera, is not all fat. She has tremendous chest muscles because she has developed her lung capacity. She can hold a note and go without breathing much longer than an average person.

How do we breathe?
Through our mouth nose as well!!!!! :L First, our diaphragm and chest muscles contract, expanding the cavity for the lungs, and drawing fresh air into the lungs (inhaling). Inside the lungs, there are tiny pockets that fill with this air called alveoli. Alveoli have thin walls, and these walls are filled with capillaries. The blood in the capillaries releases carbon dioxide into the aveoli, and at the same time, the blood absorbs oxygen from the alveoli. In just a moment, the air in the lungs loses much of its oxygen into the blood, and gains a lot of carbon dioxide. So the diaphragm and chest muscles relax, shrinking the space for the lungs, and forcing out the carbon dioxide laden air (exhaling). Then the process begins again.

What else can you do on a cavity tooth other than filling and taking out the tooth?
Yes there is, but it depends on the cavity, I once had a little cavity and they just sealed my teeth, if you get a big or spread cavity then you pretty much have no option, but anyway it doesn't hurt that much they once pulled one of my teeth when I was seven. I hope you enjoy and found this answer helpful.
