Hey GirlMoguls! It’s Poppy here, and I came across some really cool scientific facts about the human body. I just wanted to share them with you.
Have you ever held your breath just to see how long you can go without breathing? Ever wonder why we can’t go on without breathing for a very long time? Out of all the oxygen that we breathe into our body, our brain uses up more than a quarter of it. Our brain is the most important part of our body, and it requires the most oxygen to function.
Can you locate the smallest bone in your body? Most people don’t realize but the smallest bone is located in the middle of our ears.
When was the last time you ate today? Chances are you have not digested your last meal yet. It takes about 12 hours after eating for a human body to fully digest its food. It goes through many phases in your digestive system before it is fully digested. Chances are you probably digest your breakfast around the time you have your dinner.
How long can you go without blinking? Can you imagine blinking only once or twice a minute? Chances are your eyes will start to burn and you will need to blink. Without consciously knowing, we blink every 5-6 seconds. However, there was a point in our life where each of us only blinked once or twice a minute. Babies/infants only blink once or twice every minute!
Ever wonder when our body stops growing as we get older? There comes a point in all of our lives when we age that our body physically stops growing. While that is true for most of our body parts, there are two parts of our body that continues to grow throughout our entire lifetime. They are our nose and ears! It’s kind of hard to believe, but it’s true. Well, while it may not be noticeable to a human eye, it certainly happens as we continue to get older.
