Heart is the most important part the of the body and you can’t live without it and blah blah blah!. But did you know that it will beat more than 2.5 billion times in your lifetime?. This is not the only fact that will surprise you . Here are some unique facts that will surely amaze you.
1IT IS EQUAL THE SIZE OF 2 FISTS AND NOT 1
You must have heard that its size is equal to one fist but the fact is that it is actually twice of your fist.
2BAD SEX IS A BAD SIGN FOR YOUR HEART
If you go to your physician because you can’t get or keep an erection, you’ll probably get a cardiovascular test, too.
Erectile dysfunction serves as an early red flag for cardiovascular problems. That’s because the tiny blood vessels in the penis can sustain damage before larger veins and arteries.
3LAUGHTER IS GOOD SIGN
Laughter levels your stress hormones decreases inflammation in your arteries and increases HDL or “good” cholesterol. These results last at least 24 hours.
4YOU CAN CALCULATE YOUR HEALTH WITH A MEASURE TAPE
For a quick test of your cardiovascular danger, encircle a tape measure around your waist. If it measures half your height or more—say, 35 inches or greater for a 5’10” guy—your middle makes you inclined to problems.
Fat stored in your stomach—especially deep or visceral fat, the stuff surrounding your organs—secretes hormones and other compounds that increase your chances of cardiovascular disease.
5IT ISN’T PLACED WHERE YOU THINK
You might put your hand on the left side during the national anthem, but it truly rests in the middle of your chest, right below your sternum. It’s just tilted slightly to the left.
6THE LENGTH OF YOUR BLOOD VESSELS IS UNBELIEVABLE
If you spread out all your blood vessels, they’d stretch more than 60,000 miles long and wind around the world more than twice.
7YOUR FEET CAN SIGNAL AN INCOMING CARDIAC PROBLEM
When your cardiac begins to fail, your body holds water, creating swelling in your legs and feet. That may make your regular-size shoes feel too tight.
8SNEEZING WON’T STOP YOUR HEARTBEAT
Your cardiovascular system doesn’t stop when you sneeze, despite common belief. (It’s rumoured to be one of the reasons people say “God bless you” when you sneeze). The story likely began because changing pressure in your chest when you sneeze alters blood flow, creating the feeling of a skipped heartbeat.
