25 Things You Never Wanted To Know About Your Body

It’s your own body, you should know everything that there is to know about it! Right? Well, that’s what WebMD is for no? To tell you everything that you don’t know about your body? It seems like we only check that when something is wrong though. And even then it’s only to confirm our already very certain suspicions that we have cancer and are going to die tomorrow.

But really, there are a lot of things that not even scientists know about our bodies, so how could the average person like you or me have any hope? That’s a good question, and although it seems like we should just leave things up to the professionals, it can be interesting and enlightening to actually learn a little something about our own biology.

Of course, you may have noticed from the title of this list that today’s biology lesson isn’t going to be very run-of-the-mill. It’s going to be exactly the things that you would never have wanted to learn about your body. Some of you may think that this is too much information. Others of you will love it. Either way, these are 25 things you never wanted to know about your body!
