Facts About The Human Body

The human body is a beautiful piece of technology. The more research one does on the human body, the more we find out what possibilities there are. However, there are also a number of remarkable facts about our body, which we will discuss briefly in this article.

Everybody gets goose bumps from time to time. The feeling that goes through your whole body causing those little bumps on your arms, legs and in your neck. What not many people know, is that this used to be a technique to repel dangers. In the distant past, goose bumps made your hair stand up straight. Because of this, a man seemed bigger than he actually was, deterring an attacker.

Also our nose is a beautiful piece of technique. We can all smell. But did you already know that we can distinguish about 1 trillion different smells!? Who would have thought? 

This fact is for people who like to crack their knuckles, wrists or back. These aren’t bones rubbing on top of each other, they’re tiny bits of gas that are released. They have built up between your joints and are released when you make the movement with your knuckles.

By the way, if you want to tickle someone well, you have to be at the feet and toes. This is one of the most sensitive areas of your body, making it the perfect place to tease one of your loved ones. 

Always wanted to know more about our heartbeat? On average, the human heart beats about 3 billion times in a human life. And does our heart do this for our entire body? No, it doesn’t! The thumbs have a separate heartbeat. There’s a small blockage in the thumb, which disturbs the heart rate here. That’s why doctors always feel the heartbeat of someone in the neck with the index and middle finger.
