I am very surprised because I did not know that there were so many body cells. Did you know that a nap of 20 minutes is good for our health. In fact, we help to improve our concentration, mood and productivity.

Hey ivantorre! I know that 20min. nap (particularly in the afternoon) is good for our health!
Did you know how long a person's DNA is when it is stretched?
It's 2.5million time around the earth!! A great mystery in our body!!

In my case I find it very interesting that something like bacteria are so useful and necessary to live and that most of the cells are atoms empty , air or nothing. Another interesting factor is that when you look at someone you love, your pupils dilate and when you look at someone you hate,occur the same. Also, an interesting fact is that foot thumbs have two bones
, while others have three bones.

Wow, interesting! In that sense, nobody tells if sb loves me or hates me by judging their eyes?! I always tend to think the former, cause I'm a kind of optimist!

Hi Aitorze. I didn't know that about the big toe (that it only has two bones). That is interesting. Thanks for sharing :)

I know it, too. In the evenings we are smaller than in the morning because the gravity power crumples up us. I think that science, specially biology, is amazing!

I know some interesting facts about the human body. For example, if we join all the blood vessels in our body, it would measure about 97,000 km.

I know one amazing fact : A woman's ovaries contain nearly half a million ovules, but only 400 have the opportunity to create a new life.

Did you know that blood travels through the whole body and come back to the heart with only a heart pump. In addition, you need to breath by your nasal to enter a clean air to your body. Also, the small intestine is 5 metres long if it is straight, but because it takes a loopy shape in our body it looks much smaller than that.

Hi. Do you know the English name for that? It's called the Golden Ball. But because it's a French award, we also use the name in French (Ballon d'Or).

The eyes receive approximately 90 percent of all information processed by the brain, making us basically visual creatures.
