The bones grow faster and the life is running fast?
According to reports, in addition to the life rhythm of “sunrise, sunset and interest”, there is another life rhythm in the organism.
It is reported that this phenomenon of the biological clock called “growth rhythm” by scientists is also related to the length of life and the size of the body.
New York University Dental Professor Timothy?
Professor Bromic announced his findings at the 37th Annual Meeting of Dental Research.
He said that bone growth and tooth growth are controlled by the same biological rhythm, which also affects the size of the bones and body as well as many metabolic processes, including heart rate and breathing rhythm.
In fact, the rhythm affects all the laws of life and the life cycle of the creature. Therefore, the growth of teeth and bones in rats is eight times faster than that of humans, so death will be earlier.
The newly discovered rhythm, like the Japanese rhythm, is determined by the lower part of the hypothalamus, which is the control center of the self-regulating nervous system.
However, unlike the Japanese rhythm, this rhythm varies with the individual organism. The smaller the body size, the shorter the interval between mammals and the longer the interval between bodies.
For example, the growth rhythm interval of a mouse is 1 day, the gorilla is 6 days, and the human is 8 days.
Bromic found this periodicity when observing the tooth enamel growth line. This animal tooth enamel growth line is very similar to the tree’s annual ring. He also observed the relevant types of bone tissue growth, which is the first.This observation of the growth law is carried out in the bones.
In addition, humans are the most variable species of “growth rhythm” discovered so far, ranging from 5 days to 10 days.
Correspondingly, humans are also mammals with the largest body size variability.
Professor Bromic said that as the self-regulating nervous system controls human behavior, he will further investigate whether growth rhythms are related to human behavioral diversity.
