What are humans made of?

July 29, 2013


“Sugar and spice and all things nice”? Not quite. It doesn’t rhyme so well but:

Oxygen 65.0%
Carbon 18.5%
Hydrogen 9.5%
Nitrogen 3.3%
Calcium 1.5%
Phosphorus 1.0%
Potassium 0.4%
Sulphur 0.3%
Sodium 0.2%
Chlorine 0.2%
Magnesium 0.1%

These are the most commonly found elements in the human body and their percentages (by weight) in order.

I love the idea of having an ingredients list on a T-shirt! This tee is from a site called redmolotov.com alongside these other pretty cool ones.
