10 Facts you didn't know about your body

1. Ejaculation may cause men to sneeze: Sensation of excessive warmth or cold following orgasm accompanied by sweat can cause sneezing. The increased activity in the nervous system during orgasm maybe the culprit in triggering headaches. A possible explanation for the sneezing is that in the brain, the centre for orgasms is close to the centres for yawning and sneezing.

2. Our body is capable of producing Aspirin: According to researchers in the United kingdom, natural substances in fruits and vegetables can help human body produce salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is the key component that gives aspirin its anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties.

3. The foot is the thickest skin of the body: The soles of the foot and the skin of the palms is 4mm thick. The heel of the foot which is the thickest also has the most sweat glands more than other areas of the body.
4. The Appendix is not as useless as you think: According to researchers, the Appendix act as a safe house for good bacteria. The body uses this to essentially 'reboot' the digestive system which one suffers from a bout of dysentery or cholera. Weird isn't it?

5. The Body is taller in the morning than in the evening: Due to the excess fluid between our discs, which is replenished while we sleep, we tend to grow taller when we wake up in the morning than in the evening. As the day goes on, and our body undergo the strain of standing, the discs gets compressed and the  fluid seeps out, so the body losses the small bit of extra height.
6.The stomach produces a new lining every 3 days to avoid digesting itself with its own acid: The stomach wall is made up mostly of protein, left unprotected, the acid would eat right through it. Fortunately for us, the stomach walls have a lining that contains epithelial cells that secrete a protective layer of mucus and bicarbonate.

7.Body position affects your memory: When we see a familiar face, or even a photo of a favourite car or pet, we are often flooded with memories from our past. Sometimes just seeing a person or object that is similar to the ones in our memory will trigger recollections we never knew we had. Maybe you have had a memory triggered by a scent or the texture of an object. Sometimes, emotions such as happiness or anger will spur vivid memories too.

A new study shows that our body position can bring back past memories. That's right, just holding your body in the right position means you will have faster, more accurate access to certain memories. If you stand holding a tennis bat, you will quickly remember an event that happened while you were playing tennis.
8. The average person expels fart 14 times a day: For those that think farting in public is awkward, this has nothing to do with dignity. Digestion causes the body to release gases which can be painful or make you uncomfortable if trapped in the abdomen and not released. So get that gas out of your abdomen now!

9. Having orgasm helps prevent prostate cancer: According to researchers, at least 3 to 4 orgasm a week has reduced risk of prostate cancer by as much as one-third. Some researchers speculate that ejaculation may clear prostate of carcinogens.

10. Every person has a unique tongue print: Just like the finger print, the tongue is a unique organ in that it can be stuck out of the mouth for inspection, and yet it is otherwise well protected in the mouth and it is difficult to forge. The tongue also present geometric shape information and physiological texture information which are potentially useful in identity verification identification.
