The human body is an incredible work of art. There are so many things that work together to make the body work in a way that many of us take for granted.

Consider these two-dozen statements about the human body.

Cells and Nerves

The adult body contains over 50 trillion cells.

The nerve cell is the longest cell in the body.

Each brain cell communicates with 25,000 other brain cells.

The outer surface of each hair is coated with dead cells to protect the hair?

Ten billion white blood cells are produced by the body daily.

Blood cells are made in the soft inner part of long bones. This is called marrow.

Plexus are the nerves that interweave together.

Nerve impulses can travel at 250 miles per hour.

It takes ten years for the cell structure of the skeleton to completely rejuvenate itself?

No Bones About It

The femur is the both the strongest and longest bone in the body.

Enamel is the hardest material in the body.

The knee is the largest join in the body.

There are 22 bones in the human skull.


The human body sheds 40 lbs of skin in an average lifetime.

The left side of the brain control controls logic and speech while the right side is in charge of creative thinking.

The adult heart pumps 3,600 gallons of blood each day.

Human lungs can hold about three liters of air.

So Many Other Things

The average foot walks more than a thousand miles a year.

The human ear can detect 1,500 different tones.

Each human blinks 15 times every minute, or 630,720,000 in a lifetime.

The human body has 93,000 miles of blood vessels.

The pituitary gland is often referred to as the Master Gland.

It takes only 23 seconds for blood to circulate through the entire body.

The human body is comprised of 60% water. [1]

Additional Thoughts

Each of the unique qualities listed above add to the quality and length of life. Imagine the inner workings of your body much like a professional orchestra. Each part of your body is skillfully arranged to work with all the other unique features. Your eyes blink to keep the eyeball moist and clean so it can continue to see. The brain sends thousands of orders each day causing your body to perform the ordered functions.

To follow up with the orchestra analogy when one body part suffers the entire body is out of tune. The body is interdependent on all the other parts to function efficiently.

Perhaps the human body looks designed because it is designed.
