The hormones: small but mighty
The word hormone is derived from the Greek word hormone, meaning to excite or arouse. This is, briefly, the function of the hormone in the body –those chemical molecules produced in very small quantities within the body to stimulate and control key functions of growth, metabolism and reproduction. Using diagram and drawing, Dr. Saltman describes the ways in which these hormones are produced in the glands, how they are circulated through the blood stream, and what can happen is they do not perform their functions adequately.
