There are alot of interesting facts about lifes that you don't know, alot of researchers have carried out different research and scientific studies just to prove that this facts truly exist.
In this article we will discuss 6 interesting facts about life that you don't know yet.
Below are some the facts been documented down by luckynaija media team.
1. High Heels Were Originally Men's Shoes
In research carried out around the 10tg century, captured some enterprising soul participating in a horse-riding culture figured out that while riding a horse, your foot should stay more firmly in the stirrups if your shoe had a lit bit of a raised heel
This thought and idea spread while, which led to armies of men who rode into a battle wearing pumps.
By the 17th century, these shoes became a fashion trend in Europe; since having a horse was a symbol of high status, wearing a high-heeled shoe meant you had the medieval equivalent of a Mercedes-Benz. Both men and women of means wore heels until they ultimately fell out of fashion for men.
2. More People Have Cell Phones Than Toilets
This fact is quite obvious as no one would have thought of it. According to a UN report from 2015, 2.5 billion of the world's 7 billion people lack access to a toilet, particularly in areas of South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Since another report put the number of mobile phone users at 6 billion, that means more than twice as many people have phones as proper plumbing. This is not to say there are too many cell phones but to say that we still have a long way to go when it comes to providing sanitation to everyone.
3. Rice is the Oldest Food that We Still Eat Today
Humans have been cultivating rice plants—which are actually species of grass—for somewhere between 12,000 and 15,000 years. All of our modern, domesticated rice can be traced back to a single crop in the Pearl River Valley of ancient China.
The only other food that might be as old is corn, which was domesticated in Mexico between 7,500 and 12,000 years ago.
4. It Takes a Lot of Bees to Make Honey
Busy as a bee" is a saying for a reason—colonies of bees work tirelessly to convert nectar into honey to eat when the flowers aren't blooming. However, each bee certainly can't do it alone. An individual bee will only make about one-twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in its entire lifetime.
Luckily, a single colony usually contains between 20,000 and 60,000 bees and honey is a very high-energy food. It contains natural preservatives, meaning that honey is one of the very few foods that, if stored properly, will never go bad.
5. White Eggs Are as Healthy as Brown Eggs
You might think that since brown eggs tend to cost more, they surely have more nutrients, less fat, or something having to do with health.
After all, brown, whole-wheat bread is better for you than white bread. In fact, the colour of the shell says nothing about the contents' nutrition, quality, or flavor. Brown eggs cost more because the hens that lay them are larger and require more feed, thereby costing more to raise. The cost gets passed on to the consumer.
6. Honey does not spoil. You could feasibly eat 3000 year old honey.
Honey. In 2015, archaeologists reported that they'd found 3,000-year-old honey while excavating tombs in Egypt, and it was perfectly edible. This durability is thanks to the unique features of honey: it is low in water and high in sugar, so bacteria cannot grow on it.
