How Much Does A Human Heart Weigh?

The average human skeleton will account for around 14% of total body weight

Therefore, if the average American male over 20 weighs 200 pounds (90 kg), the skeletal weight will be 275 pounds (125 kg)

The average female skeleton will weigh 23 pounds (106 kg)

When we are born we start with 300 bones in the human skeleton

Where did the missing 94 bones go?

Well, as we grow older some bones fuse together from birth

Around the age of 20, the bones in the average person will stop growing and the maximum bone density will be approximately 30 years old

Most people will have 12 pairs of ribs, 24 in total

The only bone in the human body that is not connected to another bone is the hyoid

~Fun Fact~ Egyptians first started using prostheses more than 3,000 years ago saying they replaced missing big toes
