Respiratory: Lungs, Diaphragm, Epiglotis.
Skeletal: Vertebrae, Cranium, Ligament, Bone marrow, Tendon, Cartilage.

3. Explain in detail how each system works. include any diagrams, video clips or links to helpful websites

Digestive:The digestive system is how we get nuitrients from our food. It starts at the mouth (Saliver gland) when we eat, in our salivia is enzymes which break down our food. From the mouth food goes down the osphogus and into the stomach. Then goes into the small intestine then large intestine and then down into the rectum and comes out your anus.
Respiratory: The respiratory system is when you breathe in air to your lungs, to help you breathe you have a large muscle under the lungs called the diaphragm. The trachea is the pipe that carries air to your lungs it is also known as the Windpipe.
Skeletal: The main job of the skeleton is to provide support for our body. Without your skeleton your body would collapse into a heap. Without bones you'd be just a puddle of skin and guts on the floor.

4. Discuss what effects diet, smoking, or alcohol may have on the system

Digestive: Smoking can harm all parts of the digestive system, contributing to such common disorders as heartburn and peptic ulcers. Smoking increases the risk of Crohn's disease, and possibly gallstones, which form when liquid stored in the gallbladder hardens into pieces of stone-like material. Smoking also damages the liver.

Respiratory:The effects of tobacco smoke on the respiratory system include:
Irritation of the trachea (windpipe) and larynx (voice box).
Reduced lung function and breathlessness due to swelling and narrowing of the lung airways.
Increased risk of lung infection and symptoms such as coughing and wheezing.
Permanent damage to the air sacs of the lungs.

Skeletal:Cigarette smoking can cause serious problems with your bones. Smoking weakens your bones, and this can cause you to develop a disease called osteoporosisas you grow older.
The bones can also be harmed directly by toxic substances from tobacco smoke. These substances travel from the lungs, through the bloodstream, to all parts of the body,including the bones.
