Torque is the force which tend to rotate the body to which it is applied .
The object fixed on an axis will experience gravitational forces that will produce rotational forces (Torque). Gravitational torque is zero at center of mass in any object .
In human body also this applies the same where our bones and muscles act as a lever over the joint as axis. Our body is constantly exposed to these gravitational torque forces on all weight bearing joints. In which the gravitational force is creating a torque and pulling our body towards center of earth and our antigravity muscles produce a counter force to make our joints stable. Like any mass on earth in human body also gravitational torque is zero at center of gravity .
