15 Surprising Things You Didn't Know About Your Body


We’ll admit it: we take our bodies for granted. As long as they keep us upright, we can go about our days, eating and talking and sleeping without problems. It’s only when something goes wrong that we realize just how much our bodies do for us. If we catch a cold and suddenly can’t breathe through our noses, we almost struggle to remember a time when we could. Similarly, if you’ve ever broken a bone, you’ll know the glee associated with getting the bandage taken off so you can use your arm or leg again. Today, we’re going to show you 15 reasons as to why you should appreciate all that your body does, by telling you some surprising facts you probably never knew.

Today, we’ll be showing you how our bodies compare to the latest software on the market, and how capable your eyes are of producing the best quality pictures to top any phone. You’ll be learning about some weird conditions that you – hopefully – don’t have, but can cause your body to exhibit some pretty strange symptoms. We’ll be telling you about the fight or flight response, the reason why you get motion sickness, what your body is actually doing when your stomach grumbles and how you can improve your memory just by shifting your body.

If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also be learning about what other body part you could use in the future instead of your fingerprint to unlock your iPhone and why your feet might grow or shrink as you get older.
