How The Heart Functions

There is still an ongoing argument about which organ does the most work in the body to earn the position of the most hardworking organ and the two contending organs are the Liver and the Heart.
The liver is equally very hardworking but in my humble opinion, the heart takes this title.

The circulatory system of your body includes the heart. The atria, ventricles, valves, and numerous arteries and veins make up the heart. Your heart’s primary purpose is to keep oxygen-rich blood moving throughout your body. Because your heart is so important to your survival, it’s critical to maintain it healthy by eating a well-balanced diet and exercising regularly, as well as avoiding things that can harm it, such as smoking.

While studying the parts of the heart to scale your Biology WEAC exam, you may have missed some interesting facts about the heart.

Let us examine them below.

1. It’s possible to have a broken heart. It’s called broken heart syndrome and can have similar symptoms as a heart attack. The difference is that a heart attack is from heart disease and broken heart syndrome is caused by a rush of stress hormones from an emotional or physical stress event.

2. Death from a broken heart, or broken heart syndrome, is possible but extremely rare.

3. The iconic heart shape as a symbol of love is traditionally thought to come from the silphium plant, which was used as an ancient form of birth control.

4. If you were to stretch out your blood vessel system, it would extend over 60,000 miles.

5. Heart cells stop dividing, which means heart cancer is extremely rare.

Here is an extra one below just for you since you read to this point.

1. Laughing is good for your heart. It reduces stress and gives a boost to your immune system.
