Body Talk

A pretty fun and fascinating collection of body trivia.
This collection of human body facts will leave you wondering why we were designed the way we were. Got this as a forwarded mail from one of the witty professors I know in UP.

1. Scientists say the higher your I.Q., the more you dream.
2. The largest cell in the human body is the female egg and the smallest is the male sperm.
3. You use 200 muscles to take one step.
4. The average woman is 5 inches shorter than the average man.
5. Your big toes have two bones each while the rest have three.
6. A pair of human feet contains 250,000 sweat glands.
7. A full bladder is roughly the size of a softball.
8. The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve razor blades.
9. The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica.
10. It takes the food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.
11. The average human dream lasts 23 seconds.
12. Men without hair on their chests are more likely to get cirrhosis of the liver than men with hair.
13. At the moment of conception, you spent about half an hour as a single cell.
14. There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.
15. Your body gives off enough heat in 3020 minutes to bring half a gallon of water to a boil.
16. The enamel in your teeth is the hardest substance in your body.
17. Your teeth start growing 6 months before you are born.
18. When you are looking at someone you love, your pupils dilate, and they do the same when you are looking at someone you hate.
19. Your thumb is the same length of your nose.
20. At this very moment I know full well 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!

(Or don't, I don't push people to forward emails, but you totally measured your thumb next to your nose!!!! Don't deny it!)
