Mind blowing Facts about Human Body

We hang out with our own bodies all the time – so we often tend to take it for granted. But, if you think about everything your body does, it’s incredible in its own way.Just take as the instance of digesting breakfast, growing new skin, cracking sound of knuckles. So, here’s my list of some, read them and get ready to be astonished:

  4. Our nose is our personal air conditioner system: it harms cool air; cools the hot air and filter impurities.
