A Horizon (BBC TV series) program entitled What's the Problem with Nudity? explored current research on human hair. The Nudity article does not provide any background evolutionary or anthropological information. This article seems to need some work to include current research in this field, so perhaps this is is best kept as a separate entry - at least for now? Timpo (talk) 16:19, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Move reference to talk page[edit]

The following reference was given in support of a statement that a human body produces one kilowatt of heat (which is not correct). The reference is not available online so I couldn't determine if it actually contained that statement or not. If it does, then the source shouldn't be used at all.
