#TidbitThursday: Stand Tall

Stand Tall

It’s #TidbitThursday, did you know that we are taller in the morning than in the evening? This happens because the cartilage in our knees and other areas of our body slowly compress throughout the day with regular activities.

Do not panic! When you go to sleep and rest at night, the cartilage returns to its normal state. On average, we are about 1cm taller in the morning than in the evening.

What are your thoughts? Feel free to share your comments with us.

See you next week !

Did you know that the systematic name for the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of the human mitochondria contains 16,569 nucleotide residues and is thus 207,000 letters long. It was published in key form in Nature on 9 April 1981.
