Updated on October 6, 2014

Introduction

The human body is indeed a masterful creation of God. Human body consists of respiratory, transfusion, excretery, nervous, blood circulatory and digestive systems. These systems are constituted by organs.

The approximate number of cells in the body at puberty is given as 37.2 trillion on average. Anatomy studies the human body. Skeletal structure forms overall shape for human body.

The composition of the human body determines that of a number of certain elements, such as Calcium, Potassium, Nitrogen and Hydrogen.

1. Every human has a unique Tongue

Every Human being carries a unique tongue print, just like fingerprints. The tongue also presents geometric shape information and physiological texture information which are potentially useful in identity applications. Furthermore, the act of physically reaching or thrusting out is a convincing proof for the liveness. Despite these obvious advantages for biometrics, little work has till now has been done on this topic. The preliminary experimental results demonstrate the feasibility of the tongue biometrics.

The tongue is a unique organ of human body in that it can be stuck out of mouth for inspection, and yet it is otherwise well protected in the mouth and is difficult to forge.

2. Every human being loses an average of 40 to 100 strands of hair daily

Isn't it wierd? Looks a large number but still we all are not bald. We have some hair on our heads. There are many people who have are much concerned about hair loss and frequen hair fall . The fact is that it is normal to lose a certain amount of hair each day. However, when your hair loss becomes more frequent and in larger amounts, then there may be an underlying issue that needs treatment.

Let me explain hair loss. There are basically two types of hair loss, scarring hair losses and non-scarring. Scarring hair loss means that the root or hair follicle is being damaged permanently and hair can no longer grow.

Non-scarring means that you have hair loss but it does grow back as a new strand. So don't worry if the number is in normal range.

3. Importance of Healthy Amount of Sleep

A person will die from total lack of sleep sooner than from starvation. Death will occur about 10 days without sleep, while starvation takes a few weeks. So a healthy sleep of about 6-8 hours is recommended by doctors across the whole world. It actually relaxes the nervous and transfusion system. No matter how much you work, a healthy sleep and a bath will ease you out.

4. Keep Smiling

It takes 17 muscles to smile --- 43 to frown. Just remain relaxed and keep a composure with a charming smile on your face. Smile not only presents a must-meet-that-person personality but also keeps yourself patient and under nervous control.

So, Smile as much as you can.

5. One in every 2000 babies is born with a tooth.

A Baby born with a pair of bright white front teeth happen in just one in every 2,000 babies. So lucky if somebody has one with these teeth built in.

    As a Navy Corpsman I had to learn a lot about the human body, but numbers 1 and 5 are new to me. I think it's very interesting that the tongue can be as unique as a fingerprint.
