The 10 most fascinating facts about the human body ~ Part 1

Out of a total of 850+ posts I’ve ever written (not bragging, just having a reality-based Holy Cow Moment), this one is probably one of the most exciting for me to write.  I know I’ve been a little list-happy lately, and this post is no different, but I think this one is worth enduring yet … More The 10 most fascinating facts about the human body ~ Part 1

Sometimes, if you hang in there long enough, the seemingly impossible happens
