Did You Know?

A few little tidbits...

1. If you are right-handed, you will tend to chew your food on the right side of your mouth. If you are left-handed, you will chew your food on the left side of your mouth.
2. If you stop getting thirsty, you need to drink more water, because when a human body is dehydrated, its thirst mechanism shuts off.
3. Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying.
4. Your tongue is germ free only if it is pink. If it is white, there is a thin film of bacteria on it.
5. The pupil of the eye expands as much as 45 percent when a person looks at something pleasing.
6. The average person who stops smoking requires one hour less sleep at night.
7. Laughing lowers levels of stress hormones and strengthens the immune system. Six-year olds laugh an average of 300 times a day. Adults only laugh 15 to 100 times a day.
8. The roar we hear when we place a seashell next to our ear is not the ocean, but rather the sound of blood surging through the veins in our ear.
9. Your left lung is smaller than your right lung to make room for your heart.
10. When you blush, the lining of your stomach also turns red.
11. The attachment of the human skin to muscles is what causes dimples.
12. The only part of the body that has no blood supply is the cornea of the eye. It takes in oxygen directly from the air.
