We may have seen many people reveal many unusual things, but here are some great facts that reveal how exceptional our body is and that is why we have collected some fantastic photos from the internet.
12. One person can feed a million mosquitoes.
A human body has enough blood to feed on 1.2 – 1.8 million mosquitoes. A mosquito drinks about 0.003 ml of blood in the course of a bite, so an entire army of small leeches would be needed to suck up all the blood of a person.
11. Men's breasts can produce milk.
All people, regardless of gender, have mammary glands, milk ducts and nipples. The nipples of men can be stimulated to produce milk. This can also happen due to a hormonal imbalance caused by severe stress.
10. A woman can give birth to more than 40 children.
Because of their genetic background, some women are able to give birth and raise a few dozen children. The official record is held by a Russian woman who allegedly gave birth to 69 children in the 18th century.
9. Female fingerprints are 99% different from male
Female skin secretes twice as many amino acids as male skin and distributes it differently across the fingers. That is why scientists can simply look at a fingerprint to find out the gender of a person.
8. The way we bring our hands together tells us what our leading hemisphere is.
The top right finger means that the right half of the brain is dominant; top left finger proves that the left hemisphere is more active in your body. The right hemisphere is responsible for emotions and imagination. The left hemisphere is responsible for analytical and logical thinking.
1% of people would keep their fingers parallel to each other. These people are called ambidexter. Scientists have suggested that there is no dominant hemisphere for ambidexterous people. In this case, both are equally developed.
7. The fluid that flows from your nose can come from your brain.
The fluid that leaks through your nose can be your brain fluid. Brain fluid is located around your brain and is retained by a special membrane. Sometimes it can leak through your nose in small amounts as a clear liquid.
6. You are more unique than you actually think.
You are absolutely unique and not only when it comes to your fingerprints. The shape of your ear is also unique. The tongue also has a unique shape and texture. Unlike our fingerprints, this "pattern" never changes.
5. Women live longer.
The female immune system handles both internal and external threats better and its cells age more slowly, making them more efficient. That is the reason why women age more often and fall sick less often than men.
4. The female heart beats faster.
Canadian scientists have revealed that the female heart runs faster, about 1.7 – 2.3 hours before the male heart. It beats in total about 10 strokes more per minute.
3. Your liver has more than 500 functions.
Talk about busy bees – our livers do everything from filtering blood, breaking down and absorbing fats, processing cholesterol and some vitamins and much more!
2. People lie more convincing when they have to go to the toilet.
People with a full bladder are more convincing. A strong desire to go to the toilet causes a person to concentrate on self-control and therefore telling lies becomes more convincing. Moreover, they try to avoid extra movements.
1. Facial hair is the fastest growing hair on your body.
If you ever ask the male population about this, they will agree that they must face it daily when they need to shave. It's probably good that many women find bearded men attractive, right?
