The Bloody Truth

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

I was amazed when I read the following facts:

100,000 = The number of times your heart beats in one day.

35 million = The number of times your heart beats in one year

2.5 billion = number of times your heart beats in a lifetime

6 quarts = amount of blood in the human body

20 seconds = time it takes for all that blood to circulate through the body

12,000 miles = distance that blood travels in one day

1 million = number of barrels of blood pumped in one lifetime

3 = number of super tankers those barrels would fill
