The area of a tennis court is 23.77m x 8.23m = 195.6271(m^2). This is obviously NOT "almost the same" as 75(m^2). Either the tennis court reference is wrong and should be removed or the given surface area is wrong.
Together, the lungs contain approximately 1500 miles (2,400 km) of airways and 300 to 500 million alveoli, having a total surface area of about 75 m2 in adults — roughly the same area as a tennis court
What is the average weight of this organ? --184.108.40.206 (talk) 03:04, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
A normal lung usually weighs anywhere from 250 grams to 350 grams (0.55 lbs. to 0.77 lbs.). If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask me on my talk page. Tyrol5[Talk] 22:02, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

TestesThe endocrine system is a system of glands that involve the release of extracellular signaling molecules known as hormones. The endocrine system is instrumental in regulating metabolism, growth, development and puberty, and tissue function and also plays a part in determining mood. The field of study that deals with disorders of endocrine glands is endocrinology, a branch of the wider field of internal medicine. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 12:33, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Article is small in size and there is no need to be separated from the main article; this is needless fragmentation. It would be a benefit to readers to have this content on the same page, and would improve the overall quality of the article. Article could be re-expanded at a later date if needed.

Support – Other subjects seem to have included on their page a section on development so separate page seems a deviation. Iztwoz (talk) 07:01, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
