5. About the heart and the brain:
Our heart is the size of our fist and the brain is likened to an average sized cauliflower. The brain weighs about 3 pounds. Both are pinkish in appearance. Even though the heart seems to be working unflinching forever, it is proved that it takes rest for a fraction of a second between every heart beat. So, if an average person's life is measured at 75 or 80 years, the heart has had rested for approximately for 20 years.
The heart is the strongest muscle in our body. It beats for 100,000 times in a day for an average adult and a little less for a child. The muscles in our body if were removed and straightened up they could easily pull 20 tons of weight
. Most of our body weight is actually the weight of our muscles. The remaining is water content in our body and the vital organs.
The connection between obesity and cardio vascular diseases:
The heart needs to take the brunt of overweight of a person. This is because when a person has gained extra weight of even twenty pounds, the heart have to work double hard to transport the blood to the extra arteries and this can take a toll finally on it.
This is also the reason why morbidly obese people often die of cardiac arrests and heart failures.
