Body Element - Knowledge
Elemental Composition of the Human Body Diplomat,
American Board of Pathology Posted St. Valentine's Day, 2000
What we are trying to illustrate here are the fundamentals of our human existence. If we were to mix the below mentioned amounts of elements into a doll, then would the doll come to life? Of course not! Then you must know that something else is affecting us, namely, prana (cosmic energy).

The table below gives the amount of each chemical element found in the human body, from most to least abundant. For each element, there is the amount in mass units in an average (70-kilogram) person, the volume of the element, and the length of the side of a cube that would contain that amount of the pure element. Volumes of solid and liquid elements are based on density at or near room temperature (where available). For the gaseous elements (oxygen,hydrogen,nitrogen, chlorine, and fluorine), I chose to use the density of each in the liquid state at the respective boiling point.

Raw data from which this table was made are from Emsley, John, The Elements, 3rd ed., Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1998. This is a great trove of information, which I highly recommend for anyone wishing to learn more about the elements.
Notes

Oxygen is the most abundant element in the earth's crust and in the body. The body's 43 kilograms of oxygen is found mostly as a component of water, which makes up 70% of total body weight. Oxygen is also an integral component of all proteins, nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), carbohydrates, and fats.

Rubidium is the most abundant element in the body (0.68 g) that has no known biological role (silicon, which is slightly more abundant, may or may not have a metabolic function).

Vanadium is the body's least abundant element (0.11 mg) that has a known biologic role, followed by cobalt (3 mg), the latter being a constituent of vitamin B12.
