5. You are (at least) 9% viruses

5 Things you did not know about yourself!!You certainly did not know this!!

One of the major surprises scientists discovered during the Human Genome Project was how many viruses actually contributed to our DNA. Viruses can not be reproduced by themselves - and for this reason some viruses must put their DNA into the host cells in order to multiply.

If the virus infiltrates into sperm or egg cells, offspring can carry the DNA of that virus in all and one cell. This has happened so often during human evolution that at least 9% of our genome is actually a virus.

4. Your body is constantly (drastically) changing

5 Things you did not know about yourself!!You certainly did not know this!!

You are constantly changing.

If you have passed the age of puberty, then it is a great chance that you do not have any part of your body that you had as a baby (of course, this is about a molecular structure, not parts of the body). This leads to an interesting philosophical problem: if each part is different, are you still the same person that you were when you were born?

3.You can count without counting (up to four)

When you see up to four objects, you do not have to count them, and you instantly know how many of them are. For a small number of objects, you have an instinctive understanding.

2.Your stomach thinks for itself

Your stomach has more neurons than many animals have in the brain. His collection of neurons is so complex that some scientists even call it "the other brain". While other parts of the body - palms, for example - also have high levels of neurons, your stomach is unique in that it can effectively think for itself, which means you can digest food without thinking about it.

Have you ever been nervous or irritable, and you were not sure why? Have you ever had problems with concentration after a huge meal? The chances are that your stomach is partially to blame. If you are aware that your stomach thinks for yourself, you can understand the "Eat Wisely" statement in a completely new way.

1.We are partially blind

Unfortunately, no matter how people claim that people have perfect eyes - they are wrong. What's more, our eyes have a design error. Your eyes have a blind spot. The best way to describe this 'design mistake' is this: Imagine the camera and a bunch of cables in it. Now imagine that you insert all these cables into one beam and place them exactly on the half of the camera lens - in this way you blocked the visibility, which is exactly what is happening in our eyes.

This blind spot is big enough to cause problems for those who have one eye. Fortunately for most, two eyes compensate for the shortcomings of the blind spot.
