Interesting facts about human body

HARD-WORKING HEART

The heart is the hardest working muscle in the body. Every day, it creates enough energy to drive a semi-truck over 18 miles (30 kilometres). Over a lifetime, that’s equivalent to driving to the moon and back.


AMAZING BRAIN

The brain is 60 percent fat, but it still works hard. At any given time, your brain can generate up to 25 watts of power – that’s enough to power a light bulb.


GROWING SKIN

Skin is the human body’s largest organ and is constantly renewing itself. Your skin sheds 50,000 cells every minute. Over a lifetime, that piles up to 40 pounds (18.1 kilogrammes) of skin.


THOUGHT POWER

Your brain is always working, and it is actually more active while you’re sleeping. Scientists say the average person has roughly 70,000 thoughts each day.


SHRINKING BONES

You’re born with more than 300 bones, but by the time you’re an adult, you have just 206. This is because some of the bones fuse together.


WOMB WITH A VIEW

Babies in the womb grow 8,000 new brain cells every second. Newborn babies can recognise their mother’s face after just a few hours.


INCREDIBLE SENSE

Scientists have discovered that the visual cortex of blind people can rewire itself to respond to stimuli received through touch and hearing, helping them to "see" by touch and sound.


UNFEELING BRAIN

The brain itself doesn’t have any pain receptors, so it doesn't feel anything. That is why surgeons can perform open brain procedures on patients while they are awake.


PUMP POWER

During an average lifetime, the heart will pump nearly 1.5 million barrels of blood. A pumping human heart can squirt blood 10 yards (9.1 meters).


FAST SNEEZE

The typical human sneeze travels at just under 40 mph (64 kph). That’s the same speed as a running tiger!


LONG ARTERIES

If your arteries, veins and capillaries were laid out end to end, they would measure 62,137 miles (100,000 kilometres). That’s nearly enough to stretch two and a half times around the planet!


GROWING HAIR

Your hair grows nearly one-quarter of an inch (6 millimetres) every four weeks and keeps on growing for up to six years. The hair then falls out, and another grows in its place.


AMAZING MEMORY

Smell is the oldest of all the senses - before sight, hearing or touch, creatures evolved to respond to chemicals around them. Your brain can remember over 50,000 different scents.


AGEING BRAIN

The human brain is the most sophisticated thing in the known universe. Humans have more brain cells at the age of two than at any other point in their lives, but it takes nearly 20 years for the brain to mature.


IRON MAN

There is enough iron in a body to make a metal nail measuring up to three inches (7.6 centimetres) long.


EYE FOR DETAIL

If the human eye were a digital camera, it would have 576 megapixels. An eye can distinguish about 10 million different colours.


WATER

In a lifetime, a person drinks 20,000 (75,000 litres) gallons of water


POOL OF DROOL

An average person produces about 1.8 pints (one litre) of saliva a day or 25,000 quarts (23,658 litres) of saliva in a lifetime. This is enough to fill two swimming pools.


EARS AND NOSE ALWAYS GROW

Did you know that one’s ears and nose never stop growing?


MILES TO GO

If uncoiled, the DNA in all the cells from the human body would stretch up to 10 billion miles. That’s the distance from Earth to Pluto and back or 6,000 trips from Earth to the moon.


LONG-TERM STORAGE SPACE

Your brain’s long-term memory, which develops until the age of 40, can hold as many as 1 quadrillions (1 million billion) separate bits of information in a lifetime.


BEAT-BOPPING HEART

The pulse of your heartbeat changes according to the music you listen to.


TONGUE PRINT

Just like fingerprints, every person has a unique tongue print.


TASTY TREATS

Your mouth contains around 10,000 taste buds, most of which are located on and around the tiny bumps on your tongue. However, the sense of smell is necessary for taste, too.


COLOUR OF BONES

Did you know the colour of the human bones is actually range from beige to light brown? The bones you see in museums are white in colour because they have been boiled and cleaned.


A CHARGED HEART

Since a human heart has its own electrical impulse, it can continue beating for a period of time even if it is separated from the body.
