BEATING HEART❤️

     The Blue Whale's heart is the largest in the world weighing 1,500 pounds      Your heart is about the size of your two hands clasped together      A child's heart is approximately the same size as your fist      Your heart beats 100,000 times a day      Regular exercise is an important factor for heart health      Heart disease is one of the heart's greatest health threat      The sound of a heartbeat is the sound made by the four valves of the heart closing      Each minute your heart pumps 1.5 gallons of blood around the body      The right side of the heart pumps blood into your lungs, the left side pumps oxygenated blood around the body      Heart cancer is very rare, because heart cells don't divide      A woman’s average heartbeat is faster than a man’s by approximately 8 beats a minute      Your heart pumps about 1 million barrels of blood during an average lifetime      A kitchen faucet would need to be turned on all the way for at least 45 years to equal the  amount of blood pumped by the heart in an average lifetime      Because the heart has its own electrical impulse, it can continue to beat even when separated from the body providing it has an adequate supply of oxygen      A heartbeat can be detected by ultrasound approximately 6.5-7 weeks after conception      The heart of an average man beats approximately 70 times a minute      The heart of an average woman beats approximately 78 times a minute      75 trillion cells in the body receive blood from the heart, only the corneas receive no blood supply      Research has indicated that owning a cat can reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes by more than a third      Your heartbeat can change depending on the music you listen to      Your left lung is narrower than your right lung to make room for your heart      A study showed vegetarians were 32% less likely to be admitted to hospital or die from heart disease      Eating dark chocolate reduces the risk of heart disease      The heart is located just behind and slightly left of the breastbone      The heart has the ability to beat over 3 billion times in a person’s lifetime      The heart pumps out 2 ounces of blood at every heartbeat      Dying of a broken heart can happen, a study in over 2000 heart attack survivors showed attacks were far more likely after the death of a family member or close friends than any other time      A study revealed coffee drinkers are less likely to be hospitalized or worried about heart rhythm disturbances      It's a myth that sneezing stops the heart      The fetal heart is approximately twice as fast as an adult’s, at about 150 beats per minute      Approximately 5% of blood supplies the heart, 15-20% goes to the brain and central        nervous system, and 22% goes to the kidneys      Early Egyptians believed that the heart and other major organs had wills of their own and would move around inside the body      The Greek Philosopher, Plato theorised that reasoning originated with the brain, but that passions originated in the ‘fiery’ heart      The term ‘heartfelt’ originated from Aristotle’s philosophy that the heart collected sensory input from the peripheral organs through the blood vessels      Prolonged lack of sleep can cause irregular jumping heartbeats also known as Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVCs)      Some heavy snorers may have a condition called Obtrusive Sleep Apnea (OSA) which can negatively affect the heart      Drug use, particularly cocaine, affects the heart’s electrical activity      Galen of Pergamum, who was a prominent surgeon to Roman gladiators, discovered that arteries carry blood      ‘Atrium’ is latin for ‘entrance hall’ and ‘ventricle’ is latin for ‘little belly’      Physician Erasistratus of Chios (304-250 B.C.) was the first person to discover that the heart functioned as a natural pump      Squeezing a tennis ball tightly demonstrates how hard the heart has to work  to pump blood around the body      In 1903, physiologist Willem Einthoven (1860-1927) invented the electrocardiograph, which measures the electric current which flows through the heart      The walls of the heart’s left atrium are three times thicker than the right atrium      The human heart is not ‘heart-shaped’, the heart of a cow is closer to the shape      Specific to size, a normal aortic valve is >2cm2      The first heart pacemakers plugged into a wall socket      Every day, your heart creates enough energy to drive a truck for 20 miles      Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death, globally      On average, it takes about 45 seconds for blood to circulate from the heart, all around the body      Emotional vitality is associated with a 28% reduced risk of coronary heart disease
