The human body is an interesting specimen. We use it every day – for eating, for holding something, for kissing someone, yet still secrets abound every corner. We don’t know our body as much as we should. It’s a mystery. Therefore, you may find the 10 facts about the human body presented below interesting. Let’s start shall we?
Interesting Fact #1:
You can fracture a rib if you sneeze hard enough. Suppressing a sneeze may result to something more serious as you might rupture a blood vessel in your head or neck and drop dead. Want to blow your head off like a champagne cork? Hold your fart and a sneeze at the same time.
Interesting Fact #2
The acid in your stomach is very strong and powerful that it has the ability to dissolve a razor blade in less than a week. Despite the power of stomach acid, you should still avoid eating razor blades.
Interesting Fact #3:
If a boy is born without testosterone, his genitalia will mimic that of a female: the scrotum forms labia majora—the outer lips of a vagina—and the penis becomes a sort of clitoris. In short, he’s a guy who can f*ck himself.
Interesting Fact #4:
The largest organ in the human body is the skin. It covers approximately twenty square feet in an adult male. It also constantly regenerates; a person sheds around forty pounds of skin in his lifetime. Add additional pounds if you’re prone to dandruff.
Interesting Fact #5:
The pumping heart of a human can exert pressure to squirt blood at a range of thirty feet. However, research varies. If and when you unexpectedly lose a limb, grab a tape measure real quick and see how far your blood squirts before you pass out and die.
Interesting Fact #6:
There are 20 million microscopic organisms happily living on a square inch of human skin. Some of them are pretty cute. Just like the image above.
Interesting Fact #7:
The human saliva helps keep the mouth’s pH balance slightly alkaline. If it didn’t, the mouth would create an extremely acidic environment which would rot away your teeth. On the bright side, you won’t need teeth to chew food if the acid was that strong.
Interesting Fact #8:
In the thirty-three square inches of the average mouth, there are over 700 thriving species of bacteria. This makes it the most unsanitary part of your entire body. It’s amazing that it beats even the rectum.
Interesting Fact #9:
Male testicles create 10 million new sperm cells every day, enough to repopulate the planet in just six months. God was serious when he said that we go forth and multiply.
Interesting Fact #10:
Your body produces enough saliva during your lifetime to fill two swimming pools. Luckily, most swimming pools are already filled with saliva, so yours isn’t needed.
