1 A woman’s heart weighs about 8-10 oz. while a man’s weighs about 10-12 oz. 2 The word heart appears 830 times in the King James version of the bible. 3 A heart attack is actually different from cardiac arrest, although the former can lead to the latter. 4 A kitchen faucet would have to be turned on full blast for 45 years to equal the amount of blood pumped by the heart in an average lifetime. 5 Shakespeare’s Iambic Pentameter style of writing was meant to mimic the sound of the heartbeat. 6 A human cannot survive without a heart, but a heart can survive without a human. 7 If you live up to 70 years old, your heart will beat around 2.5 billion times. 8 The heart of a woman beats faster than the heart of a man by about 8 BPM. 9 A human heart beats around 100,000 times in a single day. 10 When a baby reaches 12 weeks of age their heart is already pumping 60 pints of blood in one day. 11 The heart begins to beat 4 weeks after conception. 12 Blood can be squirted to a distance of 30 feet by the pressure that is created by a single heartbeat. 13 Electrical impulses in the heart muscles make the heart pump. 14 A broken heart is a legitimate medical condition. This disease causes your heart to swell like a balloon. 15 Poor oral health increases heart disease risk. Studies suggests that oral bacterium causes cardiovascular disease when it colonizes and invades the endothelial cells that line the inner tissues of the aorta. 16 Chronic stress does inc
rease heart attack risk. Increased stress hormones will put a toll on your body and heart, causing heart attacks, strokes, depression, etc. 17 Heartsease is a European pansy that has purple and yellow flowers. 18 There are between 130-160 words in the English dictionary that have the word heart in them. 19 Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women. 20 The first heart pacemakers were allegedly plugged into a wall socket.
