1. The Longest-Living Insect is the Termite

Cockroaches may have been around
since dinosaurs roamed the planet, but
the termite queen lives longer than
any other insect out there. Some
scientists estimate that these obese and
pretty disgusting critters live as long as
100 years .

2. Chewing Gum After a Meal Reduces Heartburn

It turns out the saliva that’s
stimulated by chewing gum becomes
more alkaline, effectively neutralizes
the acid reflux that creates heartburn
while soothing your esophagus.

3. Dogs Can Smell Cancer

They don’t call them “man’s best
friend” for nothing. Researchers have
found that dogs are able to pick up on
a specific scent that cancer produces in
a person—which is undetectable to
humans. So if your dog is acting
strange around you, it may be you
who needs to get checked out by a

4. Bees Can Detect Bombs

If you thought that was impressive—
bees are able to detect bombs with
their tongues. Just as law enforcement
uses dogs to sniff out explosives, bees
can be trained to associate the scent
with receiving food as a reward. So
when the bee’s handler sees it extend
its proboscis, they know they’ve got a
bomb on their hands.

approximately 306 million tires per

longest word you can type with your
right hand is the European wildflower

8. Naps Could Save Your Life

Research has found that a mid-day nap
can make you more creative, focused,
and fresh for the rest of the day. But
one study also found that they can also
reduce your risk of heart attack.
Specifically, those who regularly nap
were found to be 37 percent less
likely to die from a heart attack or
other coronary ailment than those
who worked straight through the day.

9. You Sleep Deeper on a Hammock Than a Bed

Swiss scientists have found that the
rocking motion from a hammock leads
to nappers enjoying a longer period of
“N2 sleep” and increased “slow
oscillations” and “sleep spindles”—
science jargon for “deeper sleep”—than
those who sleep on a traditional bed.
The rocking motion was also found to
make the subjects fall asleep faster
than a regular bed.

10. Newborns Don’t Shed Tears

Tear ducts don’t fully develop in
infants until they are one to three
months old, making it impossible for
babies to shed actual tears. No wonder
they have to express their emotions by
crying loudly.
