Do you Know?

Sleeping less than 7 hours each night reduces your life expectancy.
In a lifetime, your brain's long-term memory can hold as many as 1 quadrillion (1 million billion) separate bits of information.
The gastrointestinal tract is a 30-foot (9 m) tube running from your mouth to your anus.
Your heart will pump nearly 1.5 million barrels of blood during your lifetime, enough to fill 200 train tank cars.
Your heart can keep beating even if it is separated from the body because it has its own electrical impulse.
Your brain keeps developing until your late 40s.
Our lungs and nasal passages have exquisitely tiny hairs called cilia that can "taste" bitter flavors.
When you take one step, you are using up to 200 muscles.
The chemical elements that make up your body are worth around US$160.
Human fingers can feel objects as small as 13 nanometers. If your finger was the size of the Earth, you would feel the difference between houses and cars.
