About the Body

I think our bodies are one of the most fascinating things in the world. We barely notice what goes on and what it is that actually keeps us alive. There are hundreds of interesting things about our bodies so I thought I'd find out some and share!
For start, there are around 180 million newly formed red blood cells entering our blood stream every hour.

If a person has a high IQ then they dream more.

Everyone has a unique tongue print!

We shed our skin - around 600,000 particles every hour.

We get a new stomach lining every 3 to 4 days.

Our nose can remember about 50,000 different scents.

The muscles in our eyes that we use to focus move around 100,000 times a day. In order to give our legs the same work out we would have to walk 50 miles a day.
