THe specific heat of the human body compared to protein and wood:

SubstanceSpecific Heat
- cp -
(J/(kg oC))
Human Body (average) 3470
Protein 1700
Wood 1700
  • 1 J/(kg oC) = 2.389x10-4 kcal/(kg oC) = 2.389x10-4 Btu/(lbm oF)

Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. Specific heat of water is 4187 J/kg oC (1 Btu/lbm oF).
