THINGS ABOUT THE HUMAN BODY THAT MAKE ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE WHATSOEVER

OUR INABILITY TO BIOSYNTHESIZE VITAMIN C

Our Inability to Biosynthesize Vitamin C

According to an article in a 2010 issue of Nature Education,

humans and other primates as well as bats and guinea

pigs don’t have the ability to produce vitamin C by

biosynthesizing it from glucose (other animals can).

The lack of vitamin C biosynthesis is due to mutations

in the L-gulono--lactone oxidase (GLO) gene which is

responsible for coding for the enzyme that catalyses

the last step of vitamin C biosynthesis. However, in 2008,

scientists were able to successfully re-instate the ability to

produce vitamin C in mice. It might not be long

before humans are next.

 

 

PROXIMITY OF OUR GENITALS TO OUR RECTUM

Proximity of our Genitals to our Rectum

This is not just aesthetically and anatomically awkward,

but also unhygienic. Combined with our short urethras

this leads to frequent urinary tract and bladder infections.

 

 

PROSTATE ONLY CAUSES PROBLEMS IN MALES

Prostate Only Causes Problems to Males

The prostate is a ridiculous organ in reality, with a minimally

important function (secretion of prostatic fluid increases

survival of sperm by a fraction) and a high propensity for

developing cancer, most doctors will assure you they

would get rid of it altogether at the first possible opportunity.

The prostate really contributes nothing to our survival

and reproductive efficacy, and most (if not all) men would

be happy with one percent less sperm in exchange for not

having to spend fifteen minutes in agony every time they have

to pee during the last thirty or forty years of their lives.

 

 

OUR MULTIFUNCTIONAL GENITALS

Our Multi-Function  Genitals

It’s no secret that our genitals are destined to perform

multiple functions and this can be pretty unhygienic.

For example, when it comes to women, sexual intercourse

pushes bacteria farther into the urethra, leading to

UTIs. Additionally, both men and women can contract

UTIs from two sexually transmitted bacteria, chlamydia

and mycoplasma. And of course, it is from the vagina

that babies are brought into the world.

 

 

OUR INEFFICIENT SINUSES

Our Inefficient  Sinuses

Humans have several sinuses, air-filled cavities that help with

mucus and fluid drainage. But our maxillary sinuses,

located on our cheekbone, drain upward. This often leads

to the build-up of fluid and mucus, which can cause an infection.

 

 

THE EXTREMELY NARROW BIRTH CANAL

The Extremely Narrow Human Birth Canal

Females have an unreasonably narrow birth canal, resulting

in much pain and significantly increased risk to both mother

and child during birth. This is a consequence of our quick

evolutionary leap from quadrupeds to bipeds, resulting

in our narrow pelvis.

 

 

NARROW PELVIS ALSO’S RESPONSIBLE FOR…

Narrow Pelvis Also’s Responsible For…

As if childbirth wasn’t painful enough on its own, not

helping the situation is the narrow width of the female

pelvis, which, according to scientific estimations, hasn’t

changed for 200,000 years, keeping our brains

from growing larger.

 

 

MEANDERING ARTERIES

Meandering arteries

Blood flows into each of your arms and legs via one main

artery, which enters the limb on the front of the body, by

the biceps or hip flexors. To supply blood to tissues at a

limb’s back side, such as the triceps and hamstrings, the

artery branches out, taking circuitous routes around

bones and bundling itself with nerves. This roundabout

plumbing can make for some rather annoying glitches.

At the elbow, for instance, an artery branch meets up with

the ulnar nerve, which animates your little finger, just under

the skin. That’s why your arm goes numb when the lower tip

of your upper arm bone, called the humorous or

funny bone, takes a sharp blow.

 

 

MALES HAVE NIPPLES THEY DON’T NEED

Males Have Nipples They Don’t Need

Nipples remind us that gender is anything but clear cut, especially

in utero. Whatever your sex, everyone starts off as a female in

the womb. One way or another billions of men around the world

have nipples they won’t ever need for their whole lives.
