The human body is perhaps the greatest example of the remarkable wonders of the world. Our body is so lively and unique. The synchrony of something as small as a chemical, like acetylcholine, and something so large, like our tissues, to work together, is a marvel in itself.
Every second of every day, there are multiple physiological and chemical mechanisms that are keeping your body intact.
Fundamental factors and environmental factors all have a role on how our body works. Read on and find out five different details on how your body works to make you the individual you are today!
Take a look:
#1. Has someone ever told you to eat “brain food” before a big test or examination? While it may seem like food is made to satisfy your stomach, when you eat, you are actually feeding your brain as well.
#2. Exploding Head Syndrome: This condition is pretty much precisely what it sounds like. Our brain likes to play tricks on us, and sometimes it likes to makes us believe that we are hearing extremely loud, disturbing noises like gunshots. Although it seems real, it’s all just a figment of one’s imagination. EHS is of rare occurrence but can happen more than once in a person’s life.
#3. It is a common misconception that our growth takes place during our childhood years, stopping once we hit puberty. There are essentially certain body parts, such as our feet, that can grow even in our later years.
#4. Tongue Print: Many of you know the fingerprint as a common form of identification, considering everyone has a pattern that differs from any other individuals. The tongue is another body part that actually shares this characteristic.
#5. Weather Prediction: I guess satellites are not the only way of predicting the weather. Did you know that your body parts can actually give you some sort of hint about the weather? Whenever your body is exposed to colder weather, like rain or snow, your joints can swell as a response to the drop-in air pressure.
#6. B.O: While we everyone is victim to B.O., it’s important to consider that different age groups of people are victim to different B.O. of different nature.
#7. Teeth Movement: Our teeth are actually one of the most dynamic parts of our body. They grow, they fall out, they grow again… we get braces but after that are retainers to maintain the shape. Our teeth actually have memory and like to move towards their original state.
#8. Next time, you experience your eye twitching uncontrollably, don’t freak out. It’s actually a common response our body has to a number of things.
#9. Belly flops: Your body is more dynamic than you think. Your body can actually move around and shift organs in response to external movement.
#10. Taste Buds: There are actually specific receptor in different areas of our tongue that are sensitive to different types of taste stimuli. Both these receptors and temperature have a role in the way we taste different foods.
