BE AWARE OF YOUR OWN BODY FACTS

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

 

*in**out**in**out*

Try it and see how you are breathing..

 

PEOPLE BREATHE MAINLY THROUGH ONE NOSTRIL AT A TIME

 

Thanks to something called the nasal cycle, which somewhere between 20 and 80% of people experience (yup, super-specific number there).As BuzzFeed Science explains in this post, 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

 

Give or take a few. 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.

 

YOU CAN’T BREATHE & SWALLOW AT THE SAME TIME

 

That is, unless you're a nursing baby, or a non-human primate. At some point in our evolution, humans lost the ability to do this.

YOUR TONGUE IS ALWAYS RESTING EITHER TOP OR BOTTOM OF YOUR MOUTH

 

You might have heard that that native English-speakers tend to rest their tongue at the top of their mouth. This seems to have originated from a study published in the journal Phonetica that involved just 10 participants, so the results aren't conclusive. Either way, your tongue is resting somewhere, and now you're acutely aware of it. You're welcome.

 

THERE ARE MORE BACTERIA LIVING IN YOUR MOUTH RIGHT NOW THAN THE HUMANS ON EARTH

 

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.

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 Science of Us.

THIS IS HOW YOUR SPINE LOOKS LIKE WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING DOWN AT YOUR PHONE TO READ THIS POST

 

According to work published in the Surgical Technology International journal, looking down at your phone (or your book, or anything, tbh) could be putting up to 60 pounds (27kg) of weight on your spine.
