Heart Facts

The human heart pumps 600,000 gallons a year.


The heart beats about 100,000 times each day.


A child's heart is about the size of a clenched fist; an adult's heart is about the size of two fists.


In a 70-year lifetime, the average human heart beats more than 2.5 billion times.


The adult heart pumps about 5 quarts of blood each minute - approximately 2,000 gallons of blood each day - throughout the body.

The human heart beat roughly 35 million times a year.


Scientists have discovered that the longer the ring finger is in boys the less chance they have of having a heart attack.


The human heart can create enough pressure that it could squirt blood at a distance of thirty feet.


When you're exercising, it takes your blood about ten seconds to get from your heart to your big toe and back.


Because [the heart] is a muscle with lots of blood supplied to it, it looks red like meat.  In people who are overweight ... the heart looks yellow because it is covered with yellow fat.
