10 Strange Facts About the Human Body

13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Psalm 139:13-15

God created the human body, which is so amazing and wonderful, however, we never have the time to appreciate and thank our creator for its wonderful complexities and capabilities. Here are ten strange facts about our body that will drive you to praise and glorify our magnificent creator.

  5. On average, a human sheds about 600,000 particles of skin every hour.
  6. Each day, our heart creates enough energy that can drive a truck for 32 kilometers (20 miles).
  7. The DNA in all the cells of our body would stretch 10 billion miles (from Earth to Pluto and back) if uncoiled.

  9. We are the only species that can produce emotional tears, while other mammals make distress calls.
  10. The masseter or jaw muscle, based on its weight, is the strongest muscle in our body.
