are human beings opaque or translucent?

If there are opaque, why does the torch light pass through our palm when we cover the glass of a torch?

We can not consider all the parts of human body as translucent. Translucent objects are those which  allow light to pass through them partially.
When we place our hands palm in front of high intensity light  torch, light is partially passed through them and our palm becomes red in colour due to passage of light. But the condition for it is that the light must be highly intense.
But light can not pass through other parts of human body like head, stomach etc in this way. Hence, we can consider other parts of human body other than hands palm to be opaque bodies.
