William Harvey: Discoverer of How Blood Circulatesby Lisa Yount
William Harvey showed the world that the heart was actually a pump, and that blood circulates throughout the body. It was one of the great advances in the history of science. Harvey learned much of life science by dissecting the bodies of people who had died. He discovered that the heart was a muscle that squeezes blood the way a fist can squeeze juice from an orange.
