The Human Body

I do not know if this information has been posted previously.  If so, my apologies, if not, enjoy:

The average human body contains enough:


iron to make a 3 inch nail;


sulfur to kill all fleas on an average dog;


carbon to make 900 pencils;


potassium to fire a toy cannon;  


fat to make 7 bars of soap;  


phosphorous to make 2,200 match heads;  


and water to fill a ten-gallon tank.    


The human brains consists of more than 100 billion neurons(nerve cells) through which the brain's commands are sentin the form of electric pulses. These pulses travel at morethan 250 mph, creating enough electricity to power a lightbulb. The brain consumes more energy than any other organ.    


Humans actually do not see with our eyes - we see with our brains. The eyes basically are the cameras of the brain. One-quarter of the brain is used to control the eyes.  


The human head contains 22 bones, consisting of the cranium and the facial bones. The cranium is formed by 8 bones: the frontal bone, two parietal bones, two temporal bones, the occipital bone in the back, the ethmoid bone behind the nose, and the sphenoid bone. The face consists of 14 bones including the maxilla (upper jaw) and mandible (lower jaw).

There are two main types of deafness; conductive deafness and perceptive deafness. <br />
<br />
Conductive deafness is when the sound waves are prevented from reaching the inner ear. It can be because of wax in the outer canal, fluid inside it, or the tiny bones in the ear have seized up. With perceptive deafness, sound waves can reach the inner ear, though it is a disease of the nerves leading to the brain or a condition affecting the function of the inner ear. Most cases of deafness fall into the category of conductive and perceptive deafness, though other cases of deafness are as simple as the result of old age. <br />
<br />
Old age hearing loss is from the increasing feeling of isolation and loneliness. You can become deaf from constantly being around loud noises (tinnitus) or from premature birth. <br />
<br />
Other causes of hearing loss and hearing problems are from inflammation of the outer ear (otitis externa), middle ear inflammation (otitis media), and inflammation of the spinal cord (meningitis).

That is so cool about the eyes. I read the same about your ears too !.. also that there are 2 kinds of deafness.. total deafness and nerve deafness.. Did I get that right? Nudeinva? or did i mess that up??

Me neither until I was sent this information which I have share with everyone else. ;-)

Nice! About the eyes, I did not know that.
