Why Men have Moustache & Beards**👳🏻♂️
Men grow beards because the hair follicles on their jaw are stimulated by the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is produced from testosterone.
(Here Testosterone is the primary sex hormone and anabolic steroid in males. In male humans, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as testes and prostate, as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle and bone mass, and the growth of body hair). Women have the same number of follicle cells on their faces as men, but these are less sensitive to DHT, and females also have lower testosterone levels.

🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
HOW DOES A DIGITAL CLOCK WORKS
It is usually provided by using a crystal which is made out of glass. As an electric charge passes through the crystal, it will change shape slightly and make a very light sound. The sound which is heard at a regular frequency is then converted into an electronic signal. LED or LCD light display is called a “7-segment display.” This is because there are seven segments that can light up to display a number. For instance, the number 8 uses all 7 lights.
