Fun ENT fact of the day - 23

Today is a twofer... TWO fun facts about your tongue!

  1. The strongest muscle in the human body is the tongue.  While you may not be able to bench press much with your tongue, it is in fact the strongest muscle in your body in proportion to its size.  If you think about it, every time you eat, swallow or talk you use your tongue, ensuring it gets quite a workout throught the day.
  2. Every tongue print is unique.  If you're planning on committing a crime, don't think you'll get away with leaving a tongue print behind. Each tongue is different and yours could be unique enough to find you as the culprit.
