What is the normal body temperature of a healthy human adult?

Body temperatures vary, even within humans. The adult average is lower than 37° C, and skin temperature can vary from around 32° to 35° C (90° to 95° F), and will be colder when losing heat to the environment. The body temperatures of mammals range from around 97° to over 103° Fahrenheit. Birds have average temperatures of around 105° Fahrenheit. The phi point between the freezing temperature (32° F) and the boiling temperature (212° F) of water is 100.8° F, or 38.2° Centigrade. Take the phi point from the other end of the scale of temperature and you arrive at 143°, which is about the temperature required to kill bacteria. (Generally rounded and stated as 140° in most literature.) Interestingly enough, if you take the phi point or 0.618 of 37 degrees centigrade, which is the average human body temperature, you get 23 degrees centigrade or 73 degrees Fahrenheit, a "room" temperature that many would consider to be just about perfect for indoor comfort and outdoor enjoyment.

What pH do enzymes in the human blood stream operate at?

The pH balance of the bloodstream is one of the most important biochemical balances in the chemistry of the human body. It is measured on a scale of 0-14.

What is the difference between the reproductive system in the human and a worm?

There are very few differences between the reproductive systems of the work and human. We are almost identical in reproductive organs and functions, just on a larger scale. The worm and human reproductive systems are almost identical; the Fallopian tubes of the male, are used to fertilize the urethra of the Female. The only difference between the two systems, (other then one being a much larger scale), is the transfer between the protective enzymes of the Fertosphygus Clomadia. Works have a much faster renthrough of the Dialemfrea. Hope this helps!
