How has the human body changed to the force of gravity on earth over time?

The force of gravity is a constant over time. The human body has NOT changed in response to this force. If you look at ancient human remains their skeletons are the same as modern day human skeletons.

Is getting hit the only reason you would get blood bruises on body?

A blood bruise is different from a regular bruise. A regular bruise results from some force striking the area. For example, I fell, hit my knee, and got a bruise. A blood bruise results from blood leaking out of a capillary because of pressure on the capillary. For example, sucking the skin, or what's called a hickie / hickey, brings blood to the skin surface. The blood makes every pore into a red dot. Squeezing a pimple or pinching can have the same result.

What is a bruise and what causes the different colors?

A bruise is in medicine called a contusion. A bruise occurs when force injures the small blood vessels, capillaries. Blood leaks out of capillaries into the tissue. This initially causes the skin to turn a dark black or blue or some mixture. This deep, dark coloring signifies the bruise is fresh or new. But the body immediately begins repairs. Macrophages zoom to the area to do clean up, which causes heat at the site, so a bruise might feel warmer than regular skin. The circulatory system sends in more blood flow to promote healing. As macrophages eat up debris, and the body reabsorbs blood/debris from the tissue, the bruise begins to change to a rainbow of colors: blue, green, yellow, pink, etc. These colors begin to lighten into pastels. When you see a multicolored bruise that looks like it is spreading or getting bigger, and multi-colored or pastel, it is a sign of an old bruise, not new. Within 7-10 days the body has done much of the work, and the bruise has faded or healed.

We human beings are surrounded by air so why don't we get smashed because of atmospheric pressure?

Pressure differentials are a cause of structural movement. Since the human body's internal pressure is basically that of atmospheric pressure, the human body experiences no change in structure. When the human body is exposed to vacuum pressure such as in space, the human bodies pressure would exert a force greater than that of the vacuum resulting in the human body to expand...(and explode ). When submerged beneath the ocean at great depths, the human body's internal pressure would not be enough to "push" against the force of the water and would implode...

Why do you get a scab after a bruise?
