Whatever your beliefs, most people would agree that the body we leave behind when we depart this mortal coil is just a heap of bones and flesh. But what happens to those leftovers? Assuming that nature is left to its own devices, our bodies undergo a fairly standard process of decomposition that can take anywhere from two weeks to two years.

At what age do our bodies stop growing?

The human body grows steadily from birth, and by the late teens the skeletal system has fully formed. Although you’re unlikely to grow any taller after the age of 20, scientists have recently discovered that some bones never stop growing as you age

.

In a 2011 study, researchers at the University of North Carolina found that the human pelvis continues to widen from the ages of 20 to 79. This means that even if you watch your weight and maintain the same level of body fat, your waist size naturally increases over time because of changes in the underlying bone structure. On average, the pelvis widens 1 inch (2.54 centimeters) between ages 20 and 79, resulting in a 3-inch (7.62 cm) average increase in waist size

Human Parasites: Nematodes, Flatworms and Protozoa Explained (VIDEO)

Did you know that only one in ten of the cells in your body is actually human? That’s right. A whopping 90 percent of your cells are bacterial, viral, or parasitic in nature.

The NIH’s Human Microbiome Project is ambitiously aiming to characterize the microbial communities living in us. And while the vast majority of these germs are symbionts, once in a while, we pick up a straggling critter that’s not just along for the ride–it’s there to leach our nutrients at all costs.

These parasites fall in five distinct categories, the first of which is the most numerically abundant animal on Earth: nematodes.

Origin Of Life In RNA? Study Suggests Genetic Molecules May Have Self-Assembled

A pair of RNA-like molecules can spontaneously assemble into gene-length chains, chemists in the United States and Spain report. Billions of years ago, related molecules may have created a rudimentary form of genetic information that eventually led to the evolution of RNA and life itself, the researchers say. Although it’s likely to be difficult, if not impossible, to prove whether similar proto-RNAs were present at the dawn of life, the researchers are working to see if the proto-RNAs can indeed faithfully encode information and evolve toward RNA.

Researchers have thought that RNA, the molecular cousin of the DNA that encodes our genes, may have played a role in the initial evolution of life. Shown here is an image of a DNA strand.
