10 Weird Facts Proving Your Body Is a Mysterious System

Published

on

The human body is unique. It’s a very complicated mechanism which still has a lot of secrets scientists have been researching for centuries. But why don’t we try to figure out what the capabilities of our body are, and how far they can stretch?

Bright Side would like to tell you about a few amazing things our bodies are capable of.

1. Your brain is the largest flash drive in the world.

The memory of your brain has enough capacity to store 2.5 million GB of information. This is approximately 300 years of video. The peak of memory development occurs at 25 years old and it begins to decrease at the age of 50 unless you train your memory.

2. Your body can slow down its processes to protect you from drowning.

This effect is called the diving reflex. When your brain realizes that your body is immersed in water, it slows your heart rate redirecting blood from your limbs to the vital organs to conserve oxygen. The deeper you’re diving or staying under water the slower your heart rate is.

3. You were super strong when you were a baby.

Newborn babies are very strong for their size and weight. If a baby grasps a horizontal bar, it can hang there for a long time without getting tired. This palmar grasp reflex is inherited from our ancestors from when newborn monkeys had to hold on their mothers, grasping their hair. At the age of 3 months, babies usually lose this ability.

4. The length of all blood vessels inside our body is enough to encircle the Earth 2.5 times around the equator.

If you took all the blood vessels out of an average adult and laid them out in one line, the line would stretch over 100,000 miles. This is enough to encircle the Earth 2.5 times. Our heart, at the same time, pumps 5.7 million liters of blood on average during our entire life. This volume is enough to fill 3 Olympic-size swimming pools.

5. Men’s breasts can produce milk.

All humans, regardless of gender, have milk glands, milk ducts, and nipples. Men’s nipples can be stimulated to produce milk. This can also happen due to a hormonal imbalance caused by severe stress.

6. The color of your dreams can depend on the type of television you watch.

The type of television you used to watch when you were a child can affect the color of your dreams. This study showed that the majority of people who were brought up watching a monochrome television set see dreams in black and white. While people who were born after color television was invented have colorful dreams.

7. Your muscles are designed to lift tons.

In 1982, in Lawrenceville, Angela Cavallo lifted a 1964 Chevrolet Impala. The car fell off the jacks that held it up while her son Tony was working underneath it and it pinned him down. Mrs. Cavallo lifted the car high enough and long enough for 2 neighbors to replace the jacks and pull Tony from beneath the car.

This is not the only case where someone has done the seemingly impossible during an adrenaline rush. We have 640 muscles inside our body, the limits of which are unknown.

8. Your body is a machine of mucus production.

An adult body produces 1.5 liters of snot a day, on average. We swallow most of it without even paying attention to it. In addition, a body also produces one liter of saliva, 3 liters of stomach juice, 3.5 liters of intestinal juice, and one liter of bile.

9. The liquid that runs out of your nose can be from your brain.

The liquid leaking through your nose can be your brain fluid. Brain fluid is located around your brain and held in by a special membrane. Sometimes it can leak through your nose in small quantities as a clear liquid.

10. Your body is the most protected construction in the world.

In this picture, you can see a white blood cell chasing a bacteria, overtaking it, and devouring it. These cells are the “men in black” of our body that protect it from “evil invaders.” At the same time, our body also removes old and littered cells. For example, while you were reading this sentence 22 million of your cells died. In the following 30 seconds, your body will produce 72 million new red blood cells and will get rid of 174 thousand old skin cells.
