Fun Facts About Human Body 🧬💡

We know that the skin is the biggest organ in the human body. You must have also heard that the average speed at which humans can run is about 30km/h. But have you ever gone deeper into facts and interesting statistics about the human body? We prepared a short list of illuminating facts we didn’t know and that was interesting to hear.

  • Every person sheds 22 kilograms of the skin during a lifetime.
  • Human body has enough iron in it to make a nail 3 inches long.
  • Humans are taller in the morning – throughout the day, the cartilage between the bones gets compressed, making the height of the body about 1 cm shorter by day’s end.
  • Just like every fingerprint is different, every person has a unique tongue print.
  • The brain itself doesn’t feel the pain – even though the brain processes pain signals, the brain does not actually feel the pain.
  • Science research says the higher human is IQ the more dreams brain generates. While this may be true, don’t take it as a sign you’re mentally lacking if you can’t recall your dreams. Most people don’t remember many of their dreams and the average length of most dreams is only 2-3 seconds. That is barely long enough to register
  • 80% of the brain is water. The brain isn’t the solid, gray mass they show on TVs. Living brain tissue is a squishy, pink, and jelly-like organ thanks to loads of blood and the high water content of the tissue.
  • Not everyone has 206 bones. Or not at the begginig at least. Babies are first born with over 300 bones. Baby bones are originally made of cartilage, which is mineralized through the first few years of life, and some bones fuse together, or break.
  • More than half of human bones are located in the hands and feet.
  • There are more than 600 muscles in the human body. The biggest muscle is the gluteus maximus, or the buttock muscles, also known as “the glutes”
  • The smallest muscle in the body is located inside the ear. It’s called the stapedius.
