Amazing human body

The human body has 125,000 km of blood vessels in our body. If we laid these flat it would go around the earth 3 times. We have an entire nerve centre in our stomachs. This area where we receive intuitive messages is called the enteric nervous system or second brain. It is where the term gut feeling or gut instinct comes from. The average person has around 70,000 thoughts a day and the adult brain has 500 trillion neutrons with 3200 trillion possible neural connections and we still don’t see ourselves as miracles?
