Did you know that 75 percent of your body is made up of water, but did you know that 80 percent of your brain is also water?

I don't know much about my body. I don't know that the bacteria have all this. And I only knew that the skin of my body die all days.

Is interesting the world of bacteria. We did not really know that we had a lot of bacteria that are useful to the human body. I have also read about the bacteria that make the sweat of the body does not smell badly. Also the mites that eat the dead cells is interesting.

I did not imagine that so many bacteria could live in my body. But if they are good then quit your job. It was very interesting to know that without bacteria we could die. I think there are things we should not know and just ignore them. I can not imagine a world without bacteria.

Hi Snokis! Good point, you're right. And thanks to you I've just read a bit about quarks and atoms to help me understand the topic better! :) I understand that since it's so difficult to split (= divide) an atom, it's sometimes referred to as as the smallest component of an element. In fact, it's the smallest component of an element that has the chemical properties of that element. Is that right? Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

There are bacteria that do not just harm to human beings, there are also others that may be used for personal gain

bacteria are prokaryotes because they not have their well-defined organelles and not all bad for humans.

I know two amazing facts which are 1. Sweat doesn’t smell bad. A stinky “body odour” is caused when the skin bacteria feed on sweat. Their waste products are what smell bad!
2. Just one drop of blood contains about 10,000 while blood cells and 250,000 platelets

Well, when we have a idea, our brain produces enough electricity to power a small light bulb !
Yeah, now I can understand why in the film, when the character have an idea, on their head have a light bulb :)))

Did you know every human has a tennis court in his or her body. Guess what? The average surface area of the human lungs is almost equivalent to the surface area of a tennis court.

About 98 percent of our DNA is the same as Gorilla, so I believe that why they're very intelligent.
