The Amazing Human Body

The human body is a machine that is full of wonder. This collection of human body facts will leave you wondering why in the heck we were designed the way we were.-Scientists say the higher your I.Q., the more you dream.-The largest cell in the human body is the female egg and the smallest is the male sperm.-You use 200 muscles to take one step.-The average woman is 5 inches shorter than the average man.-Your big toes have two bones each while all other toes have three bones each.-A pair of human feet contains 250,000 sweat glands.
-There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.
(These, plus the sweat glands, are the reason some people can't take off their shoes in polite company! Try rubbing antibiotic ointment on your feet after your bath every night for 3 weeks.)

-A full bladder is roughly the size of a soft ball.-The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve razor blades.-The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as in the Encyclopedia Britannica.
(Now if it were only cataloged the same way so it would be easy to find when I need it!)-It takes the food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.
-The average human dream lasts 2-3 seconds.-Men without hair on their chests are more likely to get cirrhosis of the liver than men with hair.
- Women with asthma are less likely to get cervical cancer.-At the moment of conception, you have spent about half an hour as a single cell.
-Your body gives off enough heat in 30 minutes to bring half a gallon of water to a boil. (In the middle of a hot flash, it takes much less time!)
-The enamel in your teeth is the hardest substance in your body.
-Your teeth start growing 6 months before you are born.
-When you are looking at someone you love, your pupils dilate, and they do the same when you are looking at someone you hate. (Thin line category.)

- If you put your arm to your side, most women's elbows touch below their waistlines. Most men's elbows only reach above their waistlines.

-Your foot is the same length as the distance between your wrist & your elbow. (Your forearm)
- -Your thumb is the same length of your nose. (At this very moment, I know fully well that you are putting this last fact to the test. Now remove your thumb from your nose and pass this on to the friends you think might be interested in comparing their thumbs to their noses as well. )
Thanks Win S.
