Other than being the symbol of love, our heart does the major job of pumping the blood throughout the body. By pumping the blood, it gives oxygen and nutrition to tissues, while removing the waste. So we should do all the things to keep our heart in a healthy state.
Did you know that a woman's heart beats faster than a man? The BPM of an average female is 78 while of an average man it is 70. Another fact is that the Aorta (the largest artery in the body) is almost the diameter of a garden hose.
We can keep our heart healthy by eating a wholesome diet, controlling the weight, quitting the habit of smoking, and of course exercising.
