There are things you think are true and are true. There are things that are believed to be wrong and that are wrong. There are things that are believed to be true and that are false. And finally there are things that are believed to be wrong and that are true. It’s exactly the latter that we’re going to talk about. But only medical things, or things that have to do with our body. Because it is really amazing, our body. We bet you will write yourself "BUT NAN C PAS POSSIB" at least once while reading this top.

5. Americans get hurt so much cutting bagels that hospitals have created a name for this particular case
They call it BRIs, for “Bagel Related Injuries,” or “bagel related injuries.” America is great.
6. Pregnant women heal better at the level of the heart and the liver thanks to their baby
All this thanks to the exchanges between the fetus and its mother. The future baby shares, among other things, stem cells with his mother. The stem cells can then go to the mother's organs to repair places that need them. It's better than a medoc.
7. The gut is a second brain
For many this is just a way of speaking, but in fact it is really closer to reality than you think . There are so many nerve connections in the gut that it is comparable to the brain. It's just that this part of the body doesn't allow us to thinkconsciously, but otherwise it controls a lot of things in the body, such as the brain.

8. The liver can grow back
We've all heard this, and some people think it's a myth. Yet no, it's true, liver cells are really regenerating. You can cut a large part of the liver from a patientnt, and it will reform in just a few months.
9. There are fecal transplants
Yes, poo transplants, if you prefer, but they are less pretty. It is used to quickly reconstitute a quality intestinal flora when we have had to eradicate a recalcitrant bacteria (Clostridium) with antibiotics. The antibiotics having destroyed the bad bacteria, but also the good ones, it is necessary to quickly put back good bacteria to prevent the bad ones from reproducing faster. Anyway, it's a bit filthy, but it's really effective.
10. People with low cholesterol are more likely to commit violent crimes
Or to kill themselves. Here again, scientists have looked at the subject . We don't know exactly why, but it couldIt doesn't have anything to do with the production of serotonin, a hormone that inhibits certain areas of the brain that have a role in anxiety, depression or aggression.
11. We have on average 2 kilos of bacteria in our digestive system
Two kilos of microorganisms without which we could not live, and which cannot live without us, for the most part. And even if we are very linked to our intestinal bacteria, there are lots of them that we do not yet know (at least more than half).
12. One in four surgeons with more than 25 years of practice would have already planted a limb to operate.
They must feel good stupid anyway. It is better totake his right and his left in this trade.

13. The cells die and regenerate, so 10 years apart, we are no longer the same people
If you take a guy at 20, and the same guy at 30, his body will be made up of different cells.which they only need to wait a few weeks to be able to say that they have been "replaced" by new cells (like the skin, or parts of the digestive system, which renew themselves quickly).
14. We produce over 23,000 liters of saliva in our lifetime
That's the equivalent of two Olympic swimming pools filled with slime. But no trace of the Manaudou siblings here.
15. If we put together all the iron that there is in a human, we could make a screw of about 7 centimeters
When we are told that we ingest iron, gold, zinc etc., it's not just pictures. We really have l in us. We can't wait to make jewelry out of it.
Come on, we'll let you, we'll regenerate our cells.
