10 of the most disgusting things in our body
In our bodies a lot of things, the idea of which may be unpleasant to you: sweat, dirt, pus, undigested food.
Did you know that our body more bacteria than cells? And the fact that on your lashes live mites?
1. Mites (demodex) lashes
On your eyelashes live mites, and the older you are and the fatter your skin, the more confidence we can assert this. It was found that mites, namely species Demodex folliculorum inhabit the lashes more than 80 percent of people older than 60 years.
Demodex mites - a facial ticks, and if you could see them with the naked eye, you would see them live on your eyelashes and the hair follicles. And on the same ciliary follicle can live up to 25 ticks.
Although the mere fact of their existence on your face -dovolno frightening, they are mostly harmless but can cause allergic reactions in sensitized individuals.
A lot of people are turning to professional procedures to remove earwax, despite the fact that our ear canal is a self-cleaning organ of the body.
Earwax - is an oily, waxy substance that is produced by glands in the ear canal. Thus ears protect themselves.
It prevents the ingress of foreign substances into the ears, including dust and insects. Also cerumen helps humidify ears, ear canal protects from irritation and has antibacterial properties.
Earwax composed of dead skin cells, saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, alcohols, squalene and cholesterol. On average, we select about 12-20 mg of wax per month.
3. Lipoma (fatty tumor)
Our body maintains energy reserves in fat cells, but sometimes the fat cells grow where they should not be. This leads to the formation of fatty tumors, lipoma also known. Although many believe talc disgusting, they are usually quite harmless.
They are small masses of fat cells under the skin between the skin and muscles. Such bumps to the touch, soft and mobile. As a rule, a lipoma does not grow more than a few centimeters, and most often appears on the neck, shoulders, arms, upper back, hips and buttocks.
4. Discharge of mucus
The mucus, phlegm, "gnats" - as we would call it, it exists, and it has its own reasons.
Mucus lines the inside of the nose, mouth, sinuses, throat, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and is there always, not just when you are sick colds. Our body produces about 1-2 liters of mucus every day, including a new party, which makes your nose every 20 minutes.
The mucus acts as a moisture and to dry our body tissue without it. Since it is still sticky, it also acts as a collector of "garbage", including bacteria, pollen, dirt, fungi, smoke and other substances that we inhale, and prevents them from invading our bodies.
5. Bacteria and people
In a healthy human body, much less human than you might think. In our body is 10 times more microbes than human cells, only about 100 trillion bacteria, and they are found in every corner of our body. Less than 1 percent of the bacteria in the human body can cause disease, while others help to perform important functions. For example the bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus, which are used in the manufacture of dairy products, help digest food and fight off harmful microbes.
6. The gases in the stomach, a lot of gas
All the people and all the released gases belch. If you eat, you produce gas when the bacteria in the digestive system, the food is digested. On average, we produce gases by 14 to 23 times a day, that is, approximately once per hour.
Belching gas and contains carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and methane sometimes, and sometimes sulfur. Some foods make us produce more gases, including those that are high in fiber and dairy products.
Foods that contain wheat or milk also contribute to flatulence, belching and bloating, since our bodies can not properly digest them. But most of the gases caused by swallowed air.
The stomach can accommodate an average of about 3 liters of chewed food and drinks. You will learn how to have reached the limit of nausea sensation that occurs after a meal.
Although some studies indicate that your stomach can stretch to accommodate more than 3 liters of food and drinks, it can spontaneously explode if we try to accommodate 5 liters.
If your stomach will try to "close the gate", the food and drinks will not go further into the intestine and instead go back and sometimes forcibly. Vomiting is controlled by "vomiting center" in the brain, and it can cause a number of reasons, including poisoning, infections, certain diseases and pregnancy, as well as some types of treatment, such as chemotherapy. If you can not or do not want to induce vomiting, your body tries to cope with undesirable contents in the stomach. In this case, the leak can be formed in the walls of the stomach, allowing partially digested foods to leak. Then vomiting does not seem like such a disgusting.
tonsillolith, also known as tonzillolity are a mixture of bacteria, mucus, and dead cells that accumulated in recesses of the tonsils.
If you suffer from chronic tonsillitis or have had an inflammation of the tonsils, you are more likely to tonsillolith. People with dry mouth as they are often found.
Some people do not notice them, while others feel uncomfortable when they harden. They look like white bumps on the back of the throat. Since bacteria like the feed, from which consist these corks, they often lead to the appearance of halitosis.
You can try to get rid of them using the rinse or vacuum suction procedure, which is conducted LORom. But the only way to get rid of them completely, which however, as a last resort, is the removal of the tonsils.
When we eat and drink, our body needs only a few hours to extract the vitamins and nutrients we need. The rest is to be output.
Our intestine is composed of the small intestine and colon plus rectum. The small intestine is a tube about 6 meters long and 2 to 5 cm in diameter, and large intestine - about 1 to 5 meters in length and 7, 6 cm in diameter. And it's full of waste. Our stool consists of undigested food, but other than that of mucus, bacteria and dead cells, and gives it a brown color. In normal peristalsis chair is about 75 percent of the water, and we allocate about 85-225 grams of feces daily.
10. The acid in the stomach, which can dissolve the metal
Our digestive system saturated with the juices that digest food. When the hydrogen combines with chlorine within the stomach, this creates hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid strong enough to dissolve the metal, so why the stomach does not absorb yourself?
This does not happen because of the mucus that lines the walls of the stomach and protects it from splitting.
