Did You Know The Human Thigh Bone Is Stronger Than Concrete?

The thigh bone of a human is so strong, it’s actually stronger than concrete. It makes sense as well, given that it’s the thigh bones which are pretty much supporting our whole body.

Human Thigh Bone Stronger Concrete

The thigh bones, scientific name femur, are thought to be around eight times stronger than concrete. In fact, most bones are around this strong when matched for size.

It is thought that the the thigh bones can support up to 1 ton of weight before eventually snapping, but I certainly won’t be testing to see if that’s true!

Despite the extreme solidity of human bones, they are still light weight and flexible. The wonders of nature eh?

So there you go, the next time you see a human fighting a concrete wall, you’ll know whose going to win!
