Default Re: Weird Medical Facts !!!

Nails and corneas are the only two tissues in the body that do not receive oxygen from blood.

The length of the finger indicates how fast the nail grows. The nail of the middle finger grows faster than others.

The human ears best hear in the frequency of 1,000 to 5,000 hertz.

When the sounds are above 130 decibels, it causes pain to the ears.

There are around 100 receptors in each of our fingertips.

The middle part of the back is the least sensitive part of our body.

Children have better sense of smell than adults.

After death, the body starts to dry out creating an illusion that the nails and hairs are growing even after death.

The base of the spinal cord has a cluster of nerves, which are most sensitive.

When we reach 60 years of life, we lose 50 % of our taste buds.

Platelets, which are one of the constituents of the blood is produced at the rate of 200 billion per day.

The sense of taste is the weakest of the five senses.

To Be Continued ...
