The human body is unique. It’s a very complicated mechanism which still has a lot of secrets scientists have been researching for centuries. But why don’t we try to figure out what the capabilities of our body are, and how far they can stretch?
Bright Side would like to tell you about a few amazing things our bodies are capable of.
1. Your brain is the largest flash drive in the world.
The memory of your brain has enough capacity to store 2.5 million GB of information.
This is approximately 300 years of video. The peak of memory development occurs at 25 years old and it begins to decrease at the age of 50 unless you train your memory.
2. Your body can slow down its processes to protect you from drowning.
This effect is called the diving reflex. When your brain realizes that your body is immersed in water, it slows your heart rate redirecting blood from your limbs to the vital organs to conserve oxygen
. The deeper you’re diving or staying under water the slower your heart rate is.
