  • Did you know that you are made of trillions of cells

  • but only around 200 different types?

  • For example, the cells inside your cheek

  • are made up of stratified

  • squamous

  • epithelium cells

  • designed to handle constant abrasion.

  • These type of cells are not only in your cheeks, but also in your vagina and

  • anus as well.

  • Hey guys, I'm Christine Sydelko and I'm here with ASAP Science and we're talking about why your body is amazing

  • and mine is amazinger.

  • When you are an embryo, the first opening that developed was

  • your anus.

  • That's right, you were once just a butthole.

  • That means you are a Deuterostome

  • and so is a sea urchin.

  • Christine how much gas do you think exist in your anus in one day

  • Science says that today about half a liter of gas exist in your anus

  • and I say that too, I just said it

  • If it feels like too much, don't worry as your brain already

  • does a pretty good job of censoring content. Like your nose

  • Your nose is

  • The region that is blocked by the one eye is visible

  • for the other eye, and the brain constructs a

  • unified image and therefore you ignore your nose

  • but your nose is so powerful. In fact

  • if you convert your nose receptor neurones into binary code

  • it's the equivalent of 46 petabytes

  • that's more information than every movie

  • ever made after 2017. Convert all the cells in

  • your body and will add up to

  • 91.44 zettabytes

  • or 10^21 bytes. Scientist hypothesized that during

  • pregnancy you gave some cells to your mum

  • I just gave gratitude

  • This process is called Fetal Maternal...

  • Microchimerism. I think I

  • I got it. This process is called Fetal Maternal Micro...

  • micro...michimisism

  • Microchimerism. Microsoft

  • Scientists has found fetal cells and various maternal tissues

  • that can persist for decades. The reason for this is unclear

  • but one hypothesis is that the baby is trying to increase

  • its chance of survival. When your heart stops, your brain actually

  • knows that you're dead. A study that investigated

Did you know that you are made of trillions of cells
