Body Parts That you didn’t knew but Are Secretly Awesome

While we all know main body parts that have either important functions to carry out like heart, bran and lungs and some are there for aesthetic appeal. However the human body is actually full of amazing body parts that might not be that much appealing or that much visible are still rather amazing. Some of these secret amazing body parts are as follows.

Kneecaps

Kneecaps might seem ordinary like a protection part of leg but instead they provide the leverage. The part of kneecap is called Patella which allows for straightening of legs. The same patella allows for legs to extend by 33 to 55 percent more.

Cerebrospinal Fluid

CSF is travelling through your brain and all of your spinal cord. While this fluid might seem ordinary it actually is a great shock absorbent. Whenever you get hit in the head, it actually absorbs the shock to protect your brain. The CSF is also responsible for maintaining the right pressure around your Central Nervous System to protect the brain and spinal cord.

Uterus

Usually after the child birth when Placenta from the new born baby detaches from the inside walls of uterus, it poses huge risk of blood loss as a result of large blood vessels exploding. If that happens on your arms or legs you might apply pressure. The amazing thing about uterus is that it apples pressure by itself on these broken vessels. The pressure is exerted by uterus as a result of hormone being released right after pregnancy and this allows for these vessels to be healed and closed at the same time.

Lens

The Lens of our eyes is built with elastic nature. This means that the elasticity of lens changes as per the things we see and the distance from which we see them. For near vision, lens has the ability o bounce back to its thickest form helping to see things clear from smaller distances like reading a book.

Epiglottis

Whenever we eat or drink, this consumed food or water has to pass over the windpipes. So what prohibits them falling straight into the windpipe and choking us to death? The answer is Epiglottis. It is a flap of cartilage that sits on top of larynx. Upon swallowing Larynx is pulled upward so does the Epiglottis covering the windpipe and instead of this food and water entering our windpipes they end up in Esophagus that leads to stomach.

Diaphragm

While Diaphragm’s main function is to aid in breathing process, it is also the one that allows pressure regulation on stomach and chest when we vomit, cough, urinate or defecate.
