The anatomy of our body is remarkable, isn't it? Our bodies are beautifully synced with the universe. What's interesting to notice that we're all born on the same planet, yet we're all so different from each other. Obviously, the credit goes to DNA and Gene; but haven't you ever wondered how come every DNA and Gene on this planet is different from each other. Nobody knows whose intelligence is behind the creation of this world because as we dig deeper in the search for the answers, we find more questions.
No matter how different we are, most of us can proudly claim that we know everything about our bodies, yet the dark truth is that we are aware of nothing. Like most of us may not even know that we possess some features that only 5% of the world's total population has. Yes, it's true that there are some features (useless and useful both) which are rare in your body and you probably don't even know it yet.
Have a look!
It's neither golden in real sense nor has a golden color. Rather, 'the golden blood' is a condition in which an individual's blood contains no antigens. It was first discovered in the year 1961, while there are only 40 reported cases where Rh was null in a person's blood. It's the most precious blood on our planet.
Don't lose hope; I'm sure you'll find something unique in your body. Find out of you're among those 5% population only.
This muscle is a proof that you belong to ancestor family which used to climb trees.
To find out, try and touch your little finger with your thumb, raise both of them high. If the ligament appears on your wrist, then you have Long Palmar Muscle, and if not, then you know... but don't worry; it's useless in modern life.
Two different eye color in one human is rare, but it is caused due to decreased pigmentation of the Iris. Other reasons include trauma at the time of their birth or during an individual's life.
Though science calls it as a disorder, 'distichiasis' is a unique feature in the body which causes the double line growth of hair on the lash line. Hollywood actress, Elizabeth Taylor can be taken as the famous example.
It is the congenital auricular fistula which is reported in the 5% of the world's total population. It serves as the proof that ancestor had gills. The hole is hereditary, and it can be present on both the sides as well.
This extra feature is often found in women. These added ribs are called cervical, and their growth varies from small to full. There aren't many cases in which these added ribs have caused issues. However, they do cause some discomfort, and only the ones who have it will understand.
Another feature which is more frequently found in women is tetrachromacy. It's the ability to differentiate between different shades of color. It's not a standard feature, as it lets you distinguish between 99 million colors.
These people can restore their strength even during the sleeping hours. Among such lucky ones are Nikola Tesla, Winston Churchill, and Margaret Thatcher. Researchers and scientists from the University of California have come to the conclusion these people take less time to perform tasks.
There's a rare group of people who can eat anything they want without worrying about the cholesterol, and it reduces the risk of heart-related disease by 90%. The reason behind this is lack of PCSK9 gene in their bodies.
Pharmaceutical companies used this study as a tool and have developed a drug that blocks PCSK9.
Did you find any of these special body features in you? If yes, then I envy you.
That's all, folks!
