20 Amazing Facts You Didn’t Know About The Human Body

The human body is a beautifully constructed structure that functions on its own. The best part is that that only women can give birth and nurture an entire human entity inside her womb! Nature never fails to amaze us.

So here are 20 crazy facts about your body:

1.Your heartbeat mimics the beat of the music you’re listening to.

2. 31% of your bones are just made up of water.

3.There are more bacteria in your mouth than the number of people in the world.

4.The dust you see underneath your bed is nothing but your dead skin.

5. 3 days after your death, the enzymes in your stomach that help you digest dinner begin to eat you up from within.

6. There’s a blind spot in your vision but the brain bridges the gap.

7. It takes 13 milliseconds seconds for your brain to register the images after they actually happen. So basically, you’re still living in the past.
