Fun fact: That I learned in class..

1) An adult human body has an average of (6 x 10^13) cells. 60, 000, 000, 000, 000. If they are lined up side by side, it goes around the Earth 7.5 times! Imagine that..

2) Cyclops are real. A cellular pathway defect during the development of the embryo can lead to a newborn having only one eye. It’s called holoprosencephaly. These come in different severity. Of course, the picture below shows a gradient of increasing severeness. Quite… shocking.
