It is amazing how much the human body does without you knowing on a daily basis. The human body is underestimated and commonly taken for granted. I came across an interesting explanation of the human body and its many functions and processes. Shared by one of my favourite authors Phillip Day and a committed researcher into health, I hope you enjoy some amazing facts about your body.
The human body has 600 muscles, 1000 miles of blood vessels and 550 arteries that are important enough to be given a name. Lungs are composed of 700,000,000 cells all of which we use to breathe. In seventy years the heart beats 2,500,000,000 times and lifts 500,000 tons of blood. The nervous system is controlled by the brain and has 3,000,000,000,000 nerve cells, 9,200,000,000 of which coverer the brain.
The Human Body with Hair Loss Sydney:
- Almost 3 pints of saliva are swallowed every day, the stomach generates daily from 5 to 10 quarts of gastric juice, which digests food and destroys germs
- The skin, spread out would cover 16 square feet with 1,500,000 sweat glands
- There is an average of 250,000 hairs on the head
- Fingernails and toenails takes about 6 months to grow from base to tip
- We lose an average of 40 to 100 hair strands a day
- A person can die from total lack of sleep sooner than from starvation
- Each square inch of human skin consists of twenty feet of blood vessels
By age 60 most people have lost half of their taste buds. By age 70 your heart will have beaten up to two-and-a-half billion times. Only one person in two billion will live to be 116 or older. Every human spent about half an hour as a single cell. Babies are born without knee caps. Every person has a unique tongue print. Every square inch of the human body has an average of 32 million bacteria on it. Our eyes are always the same size from birth. Our nose and ears never stop growing. Humans shed about 600,000 particles of skin every hour. By age 70 an average person will have shed 105 pounds of skin.
Humans shed and re-grow outer skin cells around every 27 days. That’s almost 1,000 new skins in a lifetime. The small intestine would stretch to a length of 22 feet. If you are locked in a completely sealed room, you will die of carbon dioxide poisoning before you will die of oxygen deprivation. If you go blind in one eye, you’ll only lose about one-fifth of your vision, but all your depth perception. It takes only 17 muscles to smile and 43 to frown. Jaw muscles can provide about 200 pounds of force to bring the back teeth together for chewing. The funny bone is not a bone; it is a nerve :o)
