Fun fact #1: Shrimp contains a cancer-fighting mineral called selenium. It inhibits tumor growth and stimulates enzymes to fend off free radicals that may cause cancer. Not only is shrimp delicious, but it may also help lower your risk to cancer.
Fun fact #2: Shrimp are excellent swimmers even though they don’t have fins. They mostly swim backwards, flexing their belly and tail muscles to propel themselves through the water. They can swim forward, but that requires them to use the appendages beneath their tails which makes swimming slower and more cumbersome. It’s kind of how humans can walk backwards but for the majority of time, it is much more efficient to walk forward.
Fun fact #3: Shrimp have tiny brains inside that little head. But their brain shares head space with another special organ — their heart. A shrimp’s heart resides in the thorax. Since the thorax and head are both encased by the same exoskeleton, the thorax is often considered part of the head.
