How do your kidneys work?

Tremendousness continues our collaboration with TED-Ed. Here’s the first in a series of health video projects with educator Emma Bryce focused on our internal organs. Say hello to your kidneys.

After drinking a few glasses of water on a hot day, you might be struck with a sudden … urge. Behind that feeling are two bean-shaped organs that work as fine-tuned internal sensors. Emma Bryce details how the incredible kidneys balance the amount of fluid in your body, detect waste in your blood, and know when to release the vitamins, minerals, and hormones you need to stay alive.

Written by Emma Bryce. Voiced by Pen-Pen Chen. Storyboarded by me. Illustrated by Chris Roettger. Animated by Eric DeFord.

The entire TED-Ed ‘Getting Under Our Skin’ series is here. Sit back, relax, and learn!
