I love the human body. To me it is the greatest combination of art and science ever and I am thrilled that my work involves it.
The more you study it and know how it works and moves, the more you will want to look after it.
It really is the only thing in this world that you own and will keep for your entire life so take care of it and it will take care of you.
Did you know…
The human body releases about ½ litre of water everyday just from breathing.
The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as Wikipedia and it operates on as much power as a 10 watt light bulb. Nerve impulses travel to and from the brain at 170 mph.
Your body gives off enough heat in 30 minutes to bring 2 litres of water to a boil.
It is impossible to tickle yourself as your brain is ready for it vs. when someone else does it.
The life span of a human hair is on average between 3 and 7 years. We lose 60-140 strands per day and you have to lose about 50% of your scalp hairs before it becomes apparent.
Your teeth start growing 6 months before birth.
Babies have 300 bones but adults have 206 due to some fusing together.
Your nose can distinguish more than 10,000 scents and women are better smellers than men.
Your small intestine, which is your largest internal organ is about 24 feet long .Your skin is your largest external organ.
The strongest muscle you have is your tongue and one of ( if not) the strongest bones is your jaw.
The largest cell is a female’s egg ( it can actually be seen with the naked eye) and the smallest cell is a man’s sperm.
The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve razor blades. The reason it doesn’t eat away at your stomach is that the cells of your stomach wall renew themselves so frequently that you get a new stomach lining every three to four days.
We are all spectacular masterpieces, inside and out!
