Mind Blowing Facts about the Human Body!

  • Acid Present in the Human Stomach is strong enough to break/dissolve razor blades. 
However, it does not affect humans as it remains in the human body in an inactive form. During digestion, it is released and after digestion, it is converted to inactive form again by the body.

About 70 cells die in the minute it takes you to read a page in a book. After 40 years, the decline of the brain accelerates sharply, and after 50 years neurons (that is, nerve cells) shrink and the brain gets smaller.

  • An adult person performs around 23,000 inhalations and exhalations a day.

  • If a human sense of smell is affected, the sense of taste is also affected as the brain interprets signals from the nose and tongue.

  • When we go to sleep and enter REM(Rapid Eye Movement), our bodies become completely paralyzed as areas of the brain that control movement is de-activated.

  • In a lifetime, your brain’s long-term memory can hold as many as 1 quadrillions (1 million billion) separate bits of information.

  • On average, the number of connections in the brain increases from 50 trillion to 1 quadrillion in a newborn during his first month of life.

  • No matter how badly fingerprints are damaged, they will always grow back in their original pattern

  • Dead skin comprises about a billion tons of dust in the earth’s atmosphere
