15 Interesting Facts about the Human Body

The human body gives you a lot of things to research and believe me, homo sapiens can give you a lot of interesting facts. Here are 15 interesting facts about the human body.

600,000 TIMES!

Did you know that the largest skin organ, the skin has an interesting fact linked to it? It is estimated that it is around 600,000 particles of skin that the human body sheds every hour. And it is said that most of the dust beneath your bedsheets is your dead skin. Woah!

MORE BONES!

At the time of your birth, you had 305 bones, that is 99 more bones than you have in your grown-up age. A baby’s skeleton is made up of cartilage and it is because of the process of ossification that cartilage turns into bones, in turn lessening the number of bones.

DO THE MATH!

Did you know that the human body is made up of 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms, which may vary according to the size, height of the person? That’s just a few pieces. Ha-ha!

SMELLING A TRILLION ODOURS!

A human nose can smell up to 1 trillion odors and that is a huge number for sure. Amazing isn’t it, odor detecting is great you see.

A SWIMMING POOL

The average saliva that we create in a lifetime can actually fill up two swimming pool. Okay! Great information but its gross and let’s not imagine it. Woah!

MAKE THEM ALL!

So another interesting fact is that our human body contains enough iron to create a 3 inch long nail, enough sulfur to kill all fleas on an average dog, enough carbon to make 900 pencils, enough potassium to fire a toy cannon, enough fat to make 7 bars of soap, enough phosphorous to make 2,200 match heads, and enough water to fill a ten-gallon tank. That’s amazing!

MITES!

Our eyelashes are a house to minute mites and that’s gross you know! These mites can live anywhere which provides a good access to hair follicles. Ho-ho!

EYES ARE SPECIAL!

I don’t mind the mites after this! Do you that if our eyes would have been a digital camera, it would have 576 megapixels. I wish they could capture pictures.

AFTER DEATH!

Within three days of death, the enzymes that played a great role in digesting your food will begin to eat up your body. The dead cells will be a food for the bacteria in your gut, which will release enough noxious gas to bloat your body and force your eyes to bulge outward.

KEEPING IT COOL DOWN THERE!

So, this one is for you guys! Did you know that why do men testicles hang between their legs? Those baby makers are made up to keep the sperm cool as it would die in body temperature. So, keep it cool there boys!

SO DO IT IN THE MORNING!

Well! Calories are burnt 20% faster during morning exercise on an empty stomach and sex burns 3.6 calories a minute, so fifteen minutes of morning sex should burn off 130 calories. Ha-ha! Thank us later bud!

THAT RECOVERY

Giving birth to a baby is amazing! But do you know that it takes about 6 months for a human lady’s vagina to recover to its normal size? That’s a long, very long time.

SPEED OF SOUND!

God bless you whenever you sneeze! The speed of your strong sneeze is similar to the speed of sound, kind of very very fast! You got me right, it is 620 mph!

FASTEST ONE

The fastest human sense is that of hearing. You can recognize a sound 10 times faster than the blink of an eye, in as little as 0.05 seconds. That’s huge!

MYTHS!

We have been always believing that the human hair grows back thicker after waxing and shaving! It is actually nothing like that. During adolescence, it is not shaving for the first time that causes the growth of beard and thick hair but hormonal changes in the body.
