Let's dig a little deeper.... Here are a few cool facts about those insides! ;)
1. The largest internal organ is the small intestine. Your small intestine is four times as long as the average adult is tall.
2, The human heart creates enough pressure to squirt blood 30 feet. Pumping blood through your body quickly and efficiently takes quite a bit of pressure resulting in the strong contractions of the heart and the thick walls of the ventricles which push blood to the body.
3. The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve razorblades. Hydrochloric acid, the type found in your stomach, is not only good at dissolving food, but can also eat through many types of metal.
4. The human body is estimated to have 60,000 miles of blood vessels. To put that in perspective, the distance around the earth is about 25,000 miles, making the distance your blood vessels could travel if laid end to end more than two times around the earth.
5. You get a new stomach lining every three to four days. The mucus-like cells lining the walls of the stomach would soon dissolve due to the strong digestive acids in your stomach if they weren’t constantly replaced.
6. Women’s hearts beat faster than men’s. On average women tend to be smaller than men and have less mass to pump blood to. However, women’s and men’s hearts can actually act quite differently, especially when experiencing a heart attack, and many treatments that work for men must be adjusted or changed entirely to work for women.
7. You could remove a large part of your internal organs and survive. It’s possible to survive even with the removal of the stomach, the spleen, 75 percent of the liver, 80 percent of the intestines, one kidney, one lung, and virtually every organ from the pelvic and groin area. You might not feel too great, but the missing organs wouldn’t kill you.
Okay..... I don't know about walking around with only half of my organs intact. I think I'd just check on out if that ever happened! ;)
