How weird and amazing is the human body? There are many interesting, weird and amazing fact about the human body which we have never heard of. Here are such 15 weird and amazing facts about the human body that are sure to get your brain going.
Please checkout the following video for complete Weird and Amazing Facts:
#1 You Blink about 30000 times in a day time ie. 24 hours.
You Blink about 30000 times in a day time ie. 24 hours. Scientists and research have shown that, average person blinks around 15-20 times per minute, or 1,200 times per hour. This means 28,800 times in a day. The purpose of blinking is mostly to lubricate the eyeballs, and also to protect them from dust or other air particles. Briefly closing our eyes might actually help us to gather our thoughts and focus on the world around us. This blinking of eyes also serve as a momentary rest for the brain.
#2 Your brain produces enough electricity that can light a light bulb.
Your brain produces enough electricity that can light a light bulb. Your brain has around 100 billion microscopic cells, known as neurons. Whenever you think, dream, laugh or walk, tiny chemical and electrical signals are racing between these neurons, along billions of tiny neuron highways. Believe it or not, brain never stops its activity. Incalculable messages dash around inside it consistently like a supercharged pinball machine. Your neurons make and send a larger number of messages than all the telephones in the whole world. And keeping in mind that a solitary neuron creates just a small measure of power, every one of your neurons together can produce enough power to light a low-wattage bulb.
#3 What amount of spit do we produce in a lifetime?
What amount of spit do we produce in a lifetime? That’s a wine bottle full every day, or around 20,000 litres in your lifetime. This is enough to fill two swimming pools!
#4 How Many Megapixels Is the Human Eye?
How Many Megapixels Is the Human Eye? In camera terms, the human eye is about 576 megapixels. As per researcher and picture taker Dr. Roger Clark, the resolution of the natural eye is 576 megapixels. That is immense when you contrast it with the 12 megapixels of an iPhone 7’s camera. Today the camera with highest resolution is, Hasselblad H6D-100C HIGH QUALITY camera with 199 MP resolution. Its cost $32,995.
#5 If an average person lives to an age 70, his heart will have beat around 2.5 billion times.
If an average person lives to an age 70, his heart will have beat around 2.5 billion times. The heart works harder even when an individual is at rest. The normal heart rate for children above 10 years and adults is 60 to 100 beats per minute.
#6 When you are listening to music, your heartbeat will generally sync with the rhythm.
When you are listening to music, your heartbeat will generally sync with the rhythm. The research shows that listening to music, initially produces varying levels of arousal which may result in accelerated breathing, increased blood pressure and heart rate. These symptoms are directly proportional to the tempo of the music and perhaps the complexity of the rhythm.
#7 You are 1 cm taller in the morning than you are at night.
You are 1 cm taller in the morning than you are at night. While we are at sleep or lying down in a resting position during night, the spine is said to “spread out” or decompress. So, when we get up in the morning, we are taller after the rest in bed all night.
#8 Stomach acid can dissolve metal.
Stomach acid can dissolve metal. We all know about the acids in our stomach which is very important for digesting the food we eat. But you will be surprised to know that, this acid in your stomach is so strong that it can even dissolve the real metal. Our Stomach acid, also called gastric acid or gastric juice, is comprised of Hydrochloric acid (HCl), potassium chloride (KCl), and sodium chloride (NaCl). The PH value of this stomach acid is generally between 1-3, which is very acidic. Also, to mention that, these pH levels put stomach acid in almost the same category as battery acid, which can dissolve steel.
#9 There are 100,000 Km of Blodd Vessels in your body.
100,000 km of blood vessels in your body or 60,000 miles. This length is more than twice the circumference of Earth which is 40,075 km. If you take the total length all of the arteries, capillaries and veins in one adult person, end-to-end, they would stretch about 60,000 miles (100,000 kilometers). Best part is that, the capillaries, which are the smallest of the blood vessels, contributes about 80 percent of this length.
#10 You can’t breathe and swallow or inhale at the same time.
You can’t breathe and swallow or inhale at the same time. The swallow process temporarily interrupts breathing. The moment we swallow, we have to hold our breath temporarily to close the airway. This keeps away any food or liquid from entering the lungs.
#11 The Small Intestine is roughly 7 meters or 22 feet long
The small intestine is roughly 7 meters or 22 feet long. Although the small intestine is much narrower than the large intestine, but it is actually the longest section of your digestive tube system, measuring about 22 feet or 7 meters normally, on average, or three-and-a-half times the length of your body.
#12 Human beings cannot digest grass
Human beings cannot digest grass. Humans can’t digest grass because Our body doesn’t have those microbes, to produce the enzymes that we’d need to break down cellulose. The PH of your stomach is ordinarily around 1 to 3, which is extremely acidic. While the grass-processing organisms live in cows, and PH esteem is more like a more neutral 6 or 7.
#13 Humans are the only animals with chins or Jawlines
Humans are the only animals with chins or Jawlines. No other animals or creature have chins. Chimpanzee and ape jaws slant inwards for instance. Even our closest extinct relatives such as Neanderthals did not have chin.
#14 The Human nose can identify around 1 trillion scents or odors
The human nose can identify around 1 trillion scents or odours. The human nose has approximately 400 sorts of fragrance receptors that can distinguish at least 1 trillion distinct scents.
#15 There are 1000 different bacteria living on your skin
There are 1000 different bacteria living on your skin. Your skin protects the body against bacteria. It itself contains around 1000 different species of bacteria, which is why the outer layer of your skin continually renews itself. The process of renewal of these skin cells takes about 28 days.
#16 Sneezes are speedy
Patti Wood, author of Success Signals: Understanding Body Language says that sneezes travel at about 100 miles per hour, even a single sneeze can send 100,000 germs into the air. A cough can travel at a speed of around 50 mph and release almost 3,000 droplets in just one go. But even so, sneezes can travel up to 100 mph and release about 100,000 droplets.
#17 There are 8 blood groups in all
There are 4 main blood groups, namely A, B, AB and O. The blood group is determined by the genes inherited from the parents. Each group is either RhD positive or negative, meaning that there are 8 blood groups in all. Cows have around 800 blood types.
#18 Our body has enough iron in it to make a whole metal nail
Our body has enough iron in it to make a whole metal nail of 3 inches long, which is about 7.5 cm. Most of this iron is in the blood.Males of average height have about 4 grams of iron in their body, females about 3.5 grams; children will usually have 3 grams or less.
