  • Yes, this slide show was made by a 12 year old middle school student and is clearly identified as 'Middle School Health'. I am glad that over 1300 people have found it useful in some way. (232 downloads!)

  • Is this site designed to serve either the very young or people of extremely low intelligence?
    I don't say that to insult but I can't see any value to the info in the above slideshow except
    perhaps for the type of individual I've mentioned. I can hardly imagine any adult with any type of education or even street smarts doesn't know this basic info. Why not make it worthwhile?
