Some Amazing Facts About Humans by Benbisco(f): 3:41pm On Jun 08, 2019
1. Your eye is the fastest muscle in your body – hence why when something happens quickly, we say ‘in the blink of an eye!’

2. You see with your brain, not your eyes. Our eyes function as a camera, capturing light and sending data back to the brain.

3. Heterochromia refers to a condition where your eyes are two different colours.

4.The cornea is the only tissue in the human body which doesn’t contain blood vessels.

5. When working at a computer, you should follow the 20-20-20 rule – look at something twenty feet away from your computer every twenty minutes for twenty seconds.

6. Human lips have a reddish color because of the great concentration of tiny capillaries just below the skin.

7. Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people do. This is largely due to the fact that a majority of the machines and tools we use on a daily basis are designed for those who are right handed, making them somewhat dangerous for lefties to use and resulting in thousands of accidents and deaths each year.

7.Your ears secrete more earwax when you are afraid than when you aren’t.

8. A human’s ears and nose never stop growing.

9. The largest cell in the human body is an egg (or ovum) and is barely visible to the naked eye.

10.The smallest cell in the human body is a sperm.

11. Taste buds are not visible to the naked eye; the little bumps that can be seen on the tongue are actually papillae, on top of which rest the taste buds.

12. Rhinotillexomania is the excessive habit of picking one's nose.

13. Omphalophobia is the fear of the navel.

14. Coprastasophobia" is the fear of constipation.

15. The space between the eyebrows is called the "glabella," which is derived from the Latin word glabellus, meaning smooth.

they Shouldnt Confuse Us More. That We See With The Brain Is A Big Fat Lie. We See With Eye Not Brain. Did A Born Blind Not Have Brain? We Reason With Brain And It Coordinates The Activities Of All The Sensory Organs Of The Body The Same Way The Ear Receives Rounds But The Brain Interpretes It.
