Human beings are the most intelligent living beings on Earth. We are beautiful. We are excellent at hygiene. Hey, we can talk about ourselves a lot because there's no other living being on this planet that can speak out to disapprove our claims! Your dog or cat never brushes. Their breath doesn't smell bad. You know it because you hug it and kiss it. Now, don't brush for a couple of days and try to kiss your partner! It will be disgusting. What we are trying to tell is that human body is more disgusting than we think! Here are fifteen disgusting things about human body you probably don't know.
1.You Swallow About One Quart Of Snot A Day
Nose and sinuses make one quart (about 1 liter) of mucus (snot) every day. The mucus keeps the nose lining moist. Mucus also cools down the air before it reaches the lungs. It traps dust and stops it from entering the lungs. It also protects lungs. Can you even imagine eating snot? Ew... no, right? Without knowing it, you swallow about all the snot your body produced for the day! It reaches your throat from the back of the nose, and proceeds to go down into the stomach!
2.You Shed 8 Pounds Of Dead Skin A Year
Skin isn't just a covering. It's actually a body organ. It has its own functions. As you may know, human skin sheds dead cells out. If you collect all the dead skin cells your body shed for one year; it will weigh 8 pounds or 3.6 kilograms. You wouldn't believe, but your dead skin cells comprise a major part of dust at your home!
3.Mouth Is The Most Disgusting Part Of A Human Body
If you think the orifices that send out waste from the body are unhygienic and disgusting, you are wrong. They are way cleaner than mouth! Yes, mouth is the most disgusting part of a human body. 200 species of bacteria live inside your mouth. People who practice good oral care habits still have 100,000 bacteria living on each tooth. People who have a bad oral hygiene have about 1 billion microbes sitting on each tooth!
