The human body is no less than wonder when it comes to withstanding a lot of grueling and unexpected things. There are numerous amazing things that we still don’t know about them. There are numerous activities and functions that whose workings will give you goosebumps. Our body is one of the most complex and mysterious mechanism systems. This uncertain mechanism of the body sometimes even surprises the specialist such as doctors and scientists. We do come across numerous unanswered question like, what is the age of our hairs? What are the strongest muscles? Why our brain is more active during the night rather than the day? Well, we can’t say will answer all questions but will provide an excerpt of few amazing facts of the human body.
Let’s See Some Amazing Facts Of Human Body:
1. Taller By Night
If you ever wished to become a bit taller and you have tried all the efforts but no success. Then, don’t get sad because we are here to tell you some amazing fact about your height. Whenever you wake up in the morning you’re probably half an inch or 1.27 cm longer than usual. This increased in height remains in the morning only when you wake up, and it’s due to a fact. The fact is that an excess fluid is gets accumulated in between the spinal discs, but when you stand all the day the fluid gets squeezed due to the stress. Once again when you go to the sleep in the night the fluid gets expanded and thus making you taller by morning.
2. Hair Reflection
The human body has the same amount of hair as compared to Chimpanzee. Most of our hair are fine and useless. Though this explains what goose bumps are actually doing. When we feel cold they warm us by lifting the hair, but due to the evolution, they are less helpful these days. Apart from this when we get frightened our body goes through goose bumps which give rise to our non-existent fur to appear us as more bigger and more threatening. These reflexes are called as piloerection. These goose-bumps can also be a result of the emotional response from our limbic system from a sudden event.
3. Hidden Strength
Have you ever thought that your hairs actually provides you a lot of strength? Yes, it’s true your head full with hair can actually support 12 ton of weight. You can pull off a double decker bus with your hair but with a proper training and care. Well, if you have stopped here only then let me awake you with one scintillating fact about the human body bones. It’s a fact that our bones are five times stronger than steel which gives us an edge to lift around 19,000 lbs of weight with just 1 cubic inch of a bone. This is huge, and it’s equals to 17 grand pianos.
We all know that humans can’t see the UV light, but there are few facts behind this. Our eyes can actually see the UV light, but our lens filters it out to prevent the eyes. People who go through eye surgery operations and whose lens are removed can actually see the Ultraviolet lights. This gives us the advantage to distinguish the different shades of green in a better way. This is the reason why the green light is used in night vision cameras to filter out the moving images more correctly. Human eyes can distinguish almost 10 million colors, and if there is no obstruction, then it can see the burning candle even if 30 miles far away. Also, if our eyes turn into a camera, then it will be measured as 576 megapixels which are about 72 times better than latest iPhones.
5. Internal Repairing Of Organs
You would be surprised to know that there is an organ that can regenerate and grow back over a period of time. Our liver can regenerate itself even if it’s remaining only 25 percent in flesh. The liver can repair itself and grow back to its normal size. Also, during the process, the liver works normally, and its process is only partially affected. There is a more peculiar thing about this, and it comes in presence during the case of pregnant women. For example when a pregnant woman suffers a sudden heart attack then her fetus sends stem cells to repair it back.
6. Stink Causing Process
If you ever worried about your body odor, then it’s very natural, and we are here to tell you the exact reason for it. The human body produces two types of sweat one from eccrine glands that go through all around our body and the second one through apocrine gland which traverse through your legs and under your arms. The bad odor that comes actually comes from bacteria feeding off the sweat from your apocrine glands. You will feel disgusted about knowing that our body has 10 times more bacteria cells on our body than the human cells. This is the reason why old people produces more smell than young people because of the chemical-2 nonenal reaction in which they excrete more sweat through their skin.
We all have seen Hollywood horror movies where a person’s heart is pulled off from their chest, and it still beats on. Our heart can actually beat separately even if taken out of the body because it has its own electrical impulse system. The heart is much more dependable as a pump and pumps around 2,000 gallons of blood which flows out through 60,000 miles of blood vessels and creates approximately 100,000 beats per day. Through a human life, it pumps out one million barrels of blood or two oil super tanks. Also, we would like to say that our heart is not completely on the left side but actually in the center, it’s just that there’s more muscle mass over to the left.
Everyone might be knowing that humans have five senses like touch, smell, sight, taste, and sound. have you ever tried to put your hands on above the fire or tried to open the freezer and wanted to feel whether it’s hot or cold? Then you’re not doing it on your own actually it’s the heat sensors in your palm which makes you feel the temperature. There is one more important sense that humans have is proprioception which terms as the meta-sense. This sense let us make our body movements freely even when our eyes are closed. With the help of this sense, one can easily detect where actually our body parts. In the absence of this sense, you can’t move your hands, heads, and neck freely. Humans also have few other important sense such as vibration, balance, pain, time, starvation, and thirst.
9. Power Of Brain
A human brain can run out on the same power like the dim light bulb of about 20 watts, but its capacity is actually more than you can think of. The brain has a stoppage potential of about 2.5 million gigabytes of data which is equal to 300 years of worth of video or enough storage to watch the Carryminati library’s all video for about 4,500 times. Also, the brain doesn’t require enough power, and it’s incredibly fast. For an instance take an example of Japan’s K computers which can simulate 10.6 billion operations in a second and it took around 40 minutes to simulate one second of brain activity.
10. Human Body And Its Shape
We think almost everyone on this planet once in a while might have wondered to know what are the elements that complete our body? Then let us tell you that your body is essentially has nothing. Our body is consists of atoms and atoms have a lot of empty spaces around their nucleus and their electrons. Well, if you lose all the emptiness then your body will be scrunched in a size of about 1/500th of a centimeter. Let’s make it more simple and amazing by letting you know that your body consists of around 7 octillion atoms. You will get goosebumps by knowing that these atoms are billion years old. The hydrogen in the body has its creation around 13 billion years ago. Everything that our body is constructed of is from the Stardust.
