The human body is the structure of a human being. It is composed of many different types of cells that together create tissues and subsequently organ systems. They ensure balance and the viability of the human body.
There are a lot of amazing things we don’t know about our body. Our body is unique and connected to every memory we have made. There are countless amazing things we do not know about our body that will amaze you
1. A new skeleton develops every 10 years. The skeletal system’s cells are constantly regenerating and, on average, the bones in existence will completely regenerate in about a decade’s time.
2. The feet contains a quarter of the body’s bones. The human feet is made up of 52 bones, 26 on each foot. That is nearly a quarter of all the bones in the whole body.
3. The smallest bone in the body is in the ear. There is no bone in the body that is smaller than the the bone in the middle of the ear and it is called the stakes.
4. There are no muscles in the fingers. The fingers do a lot of important things everyday but it is important to know that any movement in the finger is due to tendons and bones, with a lot of help from the muscles in the palm of the hands.
5. The tongue is the only muscle that doesn’t join two bones. Every muscle in the human body connects to bones at both ends, allowing it to pull and create motion except the tongue. It is connected to hyoid bone on one end but nothing on the other side.
6. It’s impossible to tickle yourself. The cerebellum—the area in the back of your brain that monitors movement—predicts the sensation you will feel when you attempt to tickle yourself, countering the response that the tickle would otherwise elicit in other parts of your brain.
7. The noise your stomach makes when you’re hungry is “borborygmus”. Borborygmus is the technical term for the gurgling sound that results from fluid and gas moving around in the intestines.
8. Everyone have a one-of-a-kind tongue print. Just has the fingerprint is unique, so is the tongue print according to a 2016 study by the Thai Moogambigai Dental College.
9. We lose almost one-third of our bones as we age. According to Mammal Anatomy: An Illustrated Guide, we are born with about 300 bones, but as we grow, some of these fuse together as cartilage ossifies, eventually leaving us with 206 bones by the time we stop growing, that is, once we’ve reach young adulthood.
10. Taste bud dulls with age. Just as hearing and vision tend to deplete as the years go by, our sense of taste does the same. Women generally experience a decrease in their taste sensitivity beginning in their 50s, while men don’t experience that until their 60s.
