How important is the heart? It is vital to the human body. Without the heart you would die in a matter of seconds. It is the organ that is required to pump blood throughout a human being’s veins. Just a pump, that is true…but what a wonderfully elaborate and complex pump at that. Let’s talk a little bit about the heart (and heart jewelry for that matter) in this article.
Let’s talk about what an incredible organ the human heart is. Pumping oxygen and blood throughout your body is its main purpose. This is needed in order for you to live. About the size of a human fist, it pumps roughly about 100,000 times a day. Pumping between five to six quarts of blood each and every minute, this is roughly about 2,000 gallons of blood each and every day.
Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States? Well, it is. Around 2,000 Americans die of heart disease each and every day. This breaks down to about one person in every 44 seconds. Now for the good news! This rate of death has been steadily declining. Unfortunately, it’s still not zero, so more work is needed.
Chest problems, such as pain, pressure, or discomfort, are the most common way that both women and men will know that they could be having a heart attack. Women are also more likely to have symptoms of a heart attack that are not chest related. Some examples of this could be: nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, dizziness, sweating, or abdominal pain.
The heart is not just an organ of the human body. It owns a part of our mind and soul as well. Synonymous with love and romance, here are some of the more popular sayings: Heavy heart (or extreme sadness), Broken Heart (a meaning to lose love), Heartfelt (something that is felt very deeply), Cry your heart out (to grieve very deeply), and to know something by heart (memorize something totally).
The heart as also worked its way into our types of jewelry as well. Did you know that some of the most popular jewelry items out there today are the jewelry heart styles denoted by: open, diamond, silver, gold, sterling silver, desert, crystal, pink, glass, half, white gold, double, ruby, god’s. Heart jewelry is not only fine jewelry, its cool jewelry as well.
