Article excerpt

General practitioners are virtually things of the past. When something ails us today, we invariably consult with a specialist whose area of expertise is a particular part of the human anatomy. The twenty words that follow represent close facsimiles of some bodily organs in need of reconstructive surgery. In fact, substituting a new letter for another in each given word will expose such an organ after appropriate rearrangement is performed. To illustrate, TAROT would be transformed into AORTA after a "T" is removed and replaced by an "A".

A bit of introspection would seem to be in order here, since all of the answers are literally found inside each and every one of us. This exercise will determine the extent of your body of knowledge concerning knowledge of your body.
