    1. One human body contains a hundred times more cells than there are stars in the galaxy. There are 100 trillion cells in the human body and about 200 different kinds of cells - all orchestrated into one magnificent whole and communicating with each other for the sake of the body.

    2. Our flesh is liquid - two-thirds water - and our skin holds it in one piece.

    3. Each minute 300 million of the body’s cells die. If they were not replaced, we would die in about 230 days.

    4. In each cell lies our DNA, the keeper of all codes, infi-nitely complex in its variations, and unique to each of us. If the DNA in our bodies’ cells were uncoiled and laid end to end, it would reach to the moon and back 100,000 times!

    5. Stomach acid is so powerful, it can dissolve razor blades in less than a week. The stomach produces a new lining every three days to protect itself from its own acid. This means the lining must shed and regenerate about 500,000 cells every minute.

    6. The kidneys clean and re-clean 40 gallons of blood per day and maintain an exact proportion of water in the blood as well as a strict mineral and chemical balance in the salty blood. This coordinates with the work of the lungs, heart, liver, pancreas, and more.

    7. The heart weighs only half a pound and is the size of a clenched fist. In a lifetime it beats about 4 billion times. Expanding and contracting, the heart delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells of hungry tissues and organs.

    8. Blood takes 16 seconds to travel from heart to toes and back again.

    9. The circulatory system in each of our bodies is 60,000 miles long. If laid end to end, the body’s blood vessels would encircle the Earth more than two times.

    10. Three million replacement cells are manufactured in bone marrow each minute.

    11. Blood, which evolved from ancient seawater, flows like a river, nourishing our tissues with the oxygen, nutrients and hormones that we need, and removing wastes.

    Now ... tell me again why you think you are not special and worthy?
