Sixteen superpowers, you didn't know you had
Superpowers? isn't it something that only superheroes are supposed to have?
Typically it is but a human being is one of the greatest wonders. Our bodies are being constantly analyzed and studied and
scientists keep making incredible findings almost every day
Did you know that Monday is the most dangerous day for your body? How much information can you remember during your life?
We collected 16 interesting facts about the human body only a few people know about. Remember to hit the like button
Number 16, the brain's memory storage capacity equals 1 petabyte or 1000 terabytes
The human brain is a perfect mechanism as we all know but you can't even imagine to what extent
Texas University scientists discovered that one synapse the space between your onal cells has the storage capacity of 4.7 bits
knowing the whole number of synapses it turns out that the brains memory storage equals 1 petabyte
And it is 10 times more than previously thought. If this volume of memory is present as a graphical file,
it's printed version would be 7.9 inches wide and about 253 billion feet long and it is
1924 lengths of the earth's equator
Number 15 no exercise guarantees abs
Yes, as disappointing as that is, there are numerous cases of people performing exercises for stomach muscles
but they do not get the desired abs
What kind of mystery is this? In fact the visibility of the ABS muscles also depends on body fat percentage
the numbers are different for men and women
the definition is visible with 3-6% of fat for men and 8-12% for women
Number fourteen human bones are several times harder than concrete
Do you know what the strongest bone in your body is? It is the femur. It goes from the hip to the knee
and can withstand up to 1800-2500 pounds of force.
Our bones are made up of composite material, they are hard and elastic at the same time
Bones consist of calcium hydroxyapatite about 60% and collagen so their structure is fracture resistible
Sounds cool, but why so many broken bones then?
Number 13 you need to put out 7700 calories to burn 2.2 pounds
When we are actively slimming, excess fat cells into carbon dioxide into water
Which is accompanied by the release of energy to get rid of 2.2 pounds of fat you need to burn through 7700 calories
that's equivalent to 10 hours of continuous running, 16 hours of swimming or a 24-hour Dance Marathon
Number 12 the total area of your lungs equals to the total area of a tennis court
The structure of this double body part contains air cells. They are bubble formations that take part in the gaseous exchange
If the total area of all lung air cells were summed up
you would get the area of a tennis court and all this fits inside our body
Number 11 hiccups can last for years
Oh, this one is quite shocking. Can you imagine how it feels to hiccup for years?
Well the American Charles Osborne actually can. He has been included in the Guinness Book of World Records for
continuously hiccupping for 68 years, from 1922 to 1990
His hiccupping just stopped one day for no reason. Paying no attention to this troublesome situation Charles lived a full life
Had a family and died at the age of 96
By the way according to the statistic men are more subjected to this trouble than women. How do you like this news?
Have you ever had a fit of hiccups you couldn't get rid of? Do you know any ways to stop this irritating process?
Share them in the comments and remember to give us a thumbs up
Number 10 people have more than five senses
Taste sight smell touch and hearing are by far not the only senses we have
Scientists count from 9 to 20 senses by various estimates. Oh my what a surprise
These are the sense of time, though some people seem to be born with the lack of it, thermoception, the sense of warmth
equilibrioception, the sense of balance without which we wouldn't even be able to stand straight and
proprioception understanding the position of one's own parts of the body
That's why we are never mistaken when touching our nose. Well unless something has gone wrong
we just know where it is, even if we see nothing. There is also no susceptance our ability to feel pain
The receptors can be found in our skin and bones and joints and in body organs
Hunger has the right to be included in our system of senses after all and helps us to understand when it's time to eat
Number 9 the eye cornea is the only part that has no blood vessels
Due to having no blood vessels the cornea remains transparent
This is good because their presence would be a barrier to eyesight
This tissue is nourished thanks to the diffusion of elements from the surrounding body structures
Number 8 most kids are born with blue eyes
Most babies have blue eyes when they are born
But if you have always been dreaming of a blue-eyed child
Don't get your hopes up the color tends to change over time
It is explained by melanin which is responsible for the eye colour. The more melanin the cornea has the darker the eyes are
Fair-skinned babies have too small and amount of this coloring
But the color changes during its production so in the end your child might enough with beautiful chocolate colored eyes
Number 7 the embryo can heal the mother
It has been noticed that 50% of women who have
Cardiomyopathy got well during their pregnancy without any healing. The explanation is in the stem cells of the baby
Which are capable of restoring the injured tissues of a woman. So the baby starts to care about their moms already in the womb!
Number 6 women blink twice as often as men
An average person blinks once in every four seconds
But it can even be more often when they are tired worried or surprised
However, it is believed that women blink twice as much as men do. It is considered that the difference is in the hormonal system
Women have a higher level of estrogen. Above all this hormone stimulates the production of natural lubricants
Moisturizing all the mucous membranes including the eye
Number 5 the eyes closed while sneezing so as not to let bacteria in
It is a well-known fact that it is impossible to sneeze with your eyes open
Many people think that they cannot open their eyes while sneezing because they will be blown out of the skull. The truth says otherwise
It turns out that it is difficult to sneeze with your eyes wide open, but it is still possible
Your eyes will stay in place
Nevertheless a sneezing person subconsciously closes their eyes to protect them from a possible bacterial invasion
Number 4 you are about 0.4 inches taller in the morning than in the evening
During the day while we are in a vertical position our invertebrate 'old discs become thinner and harder because of the weight pressure
When we sleep the discs return to their regular size and state
That is why you are a bit taller at the beginning of the day
So if you are going to play basketball do it in the morning
Number 3 human ears are capable of hearing molecules
Unbelievable! Well if you want to make sure the fact just close your eyes and ask somebody to pour some cold water into one glass
And some hot water into another. You certainly heard the difference between the sounds didn't you. In both cases ordinary water is used
The difference is in the speed of the molecules
Number 2 the chance of having a heart attack is higher on Monday than on any other weekday
It may sound bizarre but
Swedish scientific research shows that the risk of heart attack is higher on mondays and during the Christmas or New Year holidays
The lowest rates are on Saturdays and in the middle of summer July
Number 1 eyes can have more than one pupil
the issue is called polycoria. If someone has two or more pupils it is more often a fake effect only one hole in the
Cornea does the job of a pupil, all additional holes do not play any role for eyesight
There was a case with a woman from Massachusetts who had five pupils all in one eye
Anyway, that didn't bother her or cause any problems with vision
She just felt slight discomfort when she stayed outside on a bright sunny day
Polycoria is a very rare notion and some scientists even state the existence of several pupils is not true
So which fact did you find the most shocking?
