Infographic | The Human Body

I am curious about a lot of things. The makeup of the human body happened to be last week's topic so I decided to make an infographic to represent it visually.

The body icon is color coded to correspond with the elements, and the elements are color coded by group. Below, blue shows nonmetals, red represents transition elements, green shows halogens, brown represents alkali metals and orange describes alkaline earth metals. The organization of the elements is relatively close to their placement on the periodic table itself. The percentage of mass is shown on the element detail, as well as the symbol and atomic number for each element.

Source data for this was taken from Wikipedia. See this and more of my work here.
