It’s been quite long since we’ve lived on this blue round
planet with our meaty-flesh suits on. We have been successful
in observing every minute detail about all the how’s, what’s,
why’s, and when’s. But there exist certain mysteries that have
forced the scientists to scratch their heads in agony. From
Ramanujan’s unsolved theorems to the easiest question of why do
we sleep? We are still in search of answers. There are more
such questions and mysteries about the human body, still
But hey wait! Don’t you want to know what’s the biggest mystery
to have walked on Earth? Well, of course, you do. But don’t you
worry, I promise you won’t have to venture far to get the
answer. Just get a mirror and look, that’s it. The human body
is full of secrets that still baffles science. Let’s dig down
deep into some Human Body Mysteries that are so common, yet are
1. Why do we Yawn?
I know by now you’ve been yawning with boredom and fatigue.
Cool. But hey! Do you know why we Yawn? Not one of the many
specified reasons is convincing enough to be pin down as a
definite answer. Despite the theory that it helps in more
intake of oxygen, some scientists believe that yawning prevents
warming up of the brain, making it more alert.
Whereas researchers on the other hand states yawning as an act
used by our ancestors to either communicate or show their teeth
off. A definite proof is yet to be discovered. Also, you may
stop yawning now!
2. Why do we Sleep?
Are you sleepy? Yeah, I heard you. But have you ever asked
yourself why is there a need to sleep?
This query is answered most commonly as ‘because our brain
needs some rest’. Hah! But what if I told you our brain is more
active and functional while we are busy sleeping? It works
exactly as when we are awake and conscious?
Confused? So are the scientists. Various theories suggest that
sleep helps in the development of the brain, and also it is an
essential restorative function to help the body to be active
the next day. But if that’s the case, why is our brain active
while we are asleep? Think about it.
Adolescence brings several physical as well as biological
changes for the human body which is necessary for the
responsibilities that the future holds for us. While many
medical experts stick to the answer of adolescence being
nothing but a combination of mental, biological, and
psychological changes, there exists a question as to why the
human body wait for so long before we become mature at every
I’m sure most of you who’ve experienced this phase are already
curious. But there’s only one way to find it and that my
friend, is to wait for a credible answer.
4. Why do we kiss?
You still remember your first kiss right? Well, why won’t you?
It’s etched deep in your mind. But have you ever give it a
thought as to why we kiss? What’s the purpose behind? You all
already know what’s the purpose, but let’s talk
Scientists believe that kissing is done to express love and
represents social bonding. It is also considered as an act
which bails out hormones to create intimacy. It is the
combination of a number of biological factors and is considered
as an attempt to feel pleasure. However, a blatant reason is
what we look for.
5. Our Brain!
Probably the biggest mystery for scientists to solve.
Unexplained questions like how do our brain manage to work so
fast? Is it a lone function? Or does it include a contribution
of other organs as well, have puzzled medical experts and
scientists. Further, the capability of our brain to remember
memories is something that’s still questionable.
Although, various deductions of our nervous system have been
made using brain imaging but many are yet to be known. We are
carrying a box full of mysteries inside our head, and that’s
creepy! (But don’t you worry, it’s only for those who have
Despite numerous appreciable discoveries in the field of human
physiology, there are certain Human body mysteries that still
are a closed book. Scientists and researchers are digging deep
to find explainable answers, and we hope they find it pretty
soon. Because curiosity is dangerous. Very dangerous!
