Life just moves on day after day. Dawn begins, you proceed with your daily chores & end up sleeping at night and get ready for the next dawn to continue your works. Have you ever wondered about the things that happen in your body?? The facts of our own body is truly magical & astonishing. There are many minute details that many of us are unaware of about our own body. Here are some:
MOST PEOPLE BREATHE 12 AND 20 TIMES A MINUTE
Try it and see how you are breathing..
PEOPLE BREATHE MAINLY THROUGH ONE NOSTRIL AT A TIME
One nostril is blocked during the nasal cycle so you can only breathe around one-third to two-thirds of the normal amount through it, and your dominant nostril switches periodically.
YOU BLINK ABOUT 15 TIMES A MINUTE
The variation between individuals is actually pretty huge, though, so don’t be surprised if you blink a lot more or less than this. The rate also tends to change depending on what you’re doing – some people blink less while reading, and more while in conversation.
THERE ARE MITES LIVING IN YOUR EYELASHES
And also around your nose and in your ears and in the oil-secreting sebaceous glands in your pores. There are two kinds of mites that inhabit human faces: Demodex Folliculorum, which live in hair follicles, and Demodex Brevis, which live in your sebaceous glands. They have eight stubby legs and elongated bodies, and a study published in PLOS One found that all participants over the age of 18 had Demodex DNA on their faces.

Dr Bruce Paster, a microbiologist at the Forsyth Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, told NPR in 2007 that there are between 10 and 50 billion bacteria in your mouth.
AVERAGE ADULT HAS 10 PINTS OF BLOOD IN THEIR BODY
When you donate blood, you give around a pint of that.
ADULT’S HEART BEAT 60 – 100 TIMES PER MINUTE
Each beats pumps around 70 ml of blood.
HEART PUMPS AROUND 5 LITRES OF BLOOD PER MINUTE
Ten pints is just over five litres, so all of your blood is pumped through your heart about once every minute.
PEOPLE YAWN EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT TIRED
ITCHING CAN ALSO BE CONTAGIOUS
“Simply seeing someone scratching is enough to trigger your own bout of clawing, in a vain effort to rid yourself of pests, real or imagined,” Robert Provine, a neuroscientist at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County told.
