Human Facts- there are many interesting things, but I mention a few (Seven)
The heart beats more than 3 billion times in the average human lifespan to keep you alive.
Sadly not even a single second you think of your heart!
Strangely you remember your heart when you fall in love!
People say “God bless you” when you sneeze because your heart stops for a millisecond. And you don’t even realise that your heart has stopped!
‘Heavenly’ is the feeling you get after sneezing.
A single sneeze travels 100 miles (160 Km) per hour and shoots 100000 germs in the air! So don’t take it easy especially in these days of pandemic!
“The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then your body and your fat are really good friends” Bob Hope
The human body can make 7 bars of soap. So much fat! and imagine our habit of overeating!
Better keep a watch on your body fat!
‘Longer lashes, pretty you’– says the advertisement. You are getting mislead and destroying your looks in the long run.
An eyelash lives for 150 days before it falls off, you may not be aware of this. And don’t use eyelash extensions which damage your hair follicles
Humans are the only animals with Chin.
“It has nothing to do with clothing or makeup. Just put your shoulders back and chin up, and face the world with pride” Helen Mirren
We never even notice that our humble chin (bony protrusion) at the bottom of our face and I am sure none of us knows the purpose of Chin.
It is said the chin helps in supporting our jaw, assists in speech and even has sex appeal depending upon the size and protrusion and most importantly helps in chewing.
Resting the chin with the hands is one of the common postures of humans.
We are aware that no human part can survive without blood supply. Are you aware that Cornea has no blood supply?
If we can see, it’s because of the cornea, a transparent membrane covering the front part of the eye and it’s the only part of the human body that has no blood supply. It gets its nutrition from tear fluid & aqueous humour. (thick watery substance between lens and Cornea)
“The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter – often an unconscious but still a faithful interpreter – in the eye.” Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
In camera terms, the human eye is about 576 megapixels
It means the face becoming red from shyness, embarrassment, shame or romantic feelings.
Humans are the only species known to blush.
“Blushes cannot be counterfeited” Margaret of Valois
