I found all the conversation very interesting, specially de cells part, because I had never thought about all the things that compose my body, and how small they are.

I know that a newborn baby has about 300 bones, but an adult human has 206 bones because some bones grow together.

It’s really interesting but when I heard about mites I was like: ,,Ewww” I know that it’s a normal thing but know that something lives in your eyelashes and eyebrows is just... weird? I don’t know but I rather won’t think about that too much.

I didn't know any of these things but I know that infants are born with approximately 300 bones, but as they grow some of these bones fuse together and by the time they reach adulthood, they only have 206 bones.

Honestly, the human body is one seriously complex and mysterious mechanism that sometimes confuses even the most qualified specialists.
I knew an interesting fact about our body that deeply impressed me. You have two kidneys, but you can live without one of your kidneys. Some people are born with only one because the other one did not grow properly, or was damaged, and they can live long happy lives. This is an amazing thing.

The facts were really curious! Another shocking fact about our body is that with all the iron that we have in our body we could make a nail long 7 cm!

People sometimes think that they don't use most of their brain cells but it's not true. We use 100 percent of our brain cells. But everybody can't grasp or process everything. Thus the difference between fools and intelligents.

I don't know if someone commented this, but the fact is: if you stretch all DNA of your cells and put it together as one string, that length would be twice the diameter of the solar system

I found it interesting where an experiment was done and he says that animals do not survive without bacteria unless they are subjected to a special diet. I think it is impossible to try to identify them with the naked eye.

Interesting facts about micro size of human body. And I can add this, the vaccine is injecting some bacteria to our body to gain immunity against bacteria. So in a possible infection, body can identify the bacteria and beats them.

Did you know your body is 75 percent water, and also, your brain is 80 percent water. Thats why if you don't drink anything in 3 days, you may die.
