5 Facts about the Human Body you Didn’t Know

Though the human body is made up of different types of cells and tissues, it’s an amazing work of God. The body has the capacity to do almost impossible things; from the stomach to the kidney to the skin giving off heat enough to boil water.

Check out five amazing things via ‘Reader’s Digest Book of Facts’ you didn’t know the body is capable of:

1. A male sperm is enough to birth an entire planet in six months! This is because a man’s testicles are able to manufacture 10 million new sperm cells every living day!

2. The kidney each contains at least 1 million filters, filtering about 2.2 pints of blood every minute and expelling about 2.5 pints of urine per day.

3. The female ovary has close to five hundred-thousand egg cells but just about 400 will get to create a new life!

4. The whole human body emits enough heat to boil half a gallon of water in 30 minutes!

5. The digestive acids in the stomach is very strong that it can dissolve zinc! The reason it hasn’t ‘burned’ the stomach inside out is because the cells in the stomach lining are renewed so quickly that the acids don’t have enough time to dissolve it.
