If it will be important to have a healthy heart!

You knowHow many cells do we have in the brain?

It is estimated that there are 86,000 million, imagine what we will have throughout our body. This despite the fact that some of us are accused of not having one. We call them mindless.

What is the average number of our blood pressure if we are healthy?

Blood pressure is a value that expresses the relationship between the blood that the heart, specifically the left ventricle, expels when contracting, and that touches the arteries near it, which is what is called maximum or systolic blood pressure, and that its optimal value is 120 mmhg, or the residual in the body’s arteries when the heart stops expelling blood from the left ventricle, because at that moment it is filling up; This is what we call diastole, and that value is the diastolic or minimum blood pressure, and its optimal figure of 80 millimeters of mercury.

And cholesterol?

You know that if this fat circulates through our high blood it can accumulate in the arteries, damage them, what we call arteriosclerosis, this reduces their caliber and makes it difficult for the blood to carry nutrients and oxygen to the organs, and can damage them. Its value should not exceed 200 mg / dl, but that total cholesterol is the sum of the cholesterol that we call bad, or LDL, because it is contained in low-density lipoproteins (LDL are its acronym in English), and the good or HDL , contained in high-density lipoproteins (HDL). For good health we must have less than 100mg / dl of bad cholesterol, and the more good cholesterol, HDL above 45mg / dl. best

How many chromosomes make us boy or girl?

We all have 23 pairs of them in the central part of our cells, in the nucleus. They are formed by DNA molecules, which are responsible for our traits, that we resemble our relatives or that we develop or have a propensity for certain diseases. Only one pair of them conditions that we develop genitalia and physical features of a man or woman. If they are XX it conditions the woman, and if they are XY the man.

How much do we urinate?

You urinate about one to one and a half liters a day. Urine is one of the many systems that the body has to expel substances it does not need, and that on the other hand, if they accumulate, they would be toxic.

I remind you that the prostate in men embraces the tubule that leads to the outside, the urine (the urethra), it grows and can prevent urine from coming out easily, so some men, especially in older age, if they have a large prostate, they have less force in the jet, they even urinate on the tips of their shoes and at the end they drip, dirty the sinks with the consequent anger of their wives.

On the contrary, there are other people who urinate a lot, almost always because they must expel substances that are in their blood in large quantities, for example, sugar, glucose, in a diabetic who has poorly controlled disease, or have high levels of calcium, sometimes released from the bone by a tumor growing in it. And since no one urinates solid, these substances must be eliminated with water (it has osmotic force) and the subject urinates a lot (polyuria). Rarer is that the patient suffers a mental disorder that forces him to drink large amounts of liquid and that in turn must expel them.

The pandemic has made us very aware of the bacteria that lodge in our bodies.

How many bacteria live in our body?

During the last decades, the number commonly accepted by the scientific community estimates that the number of bacterial cells is around 10 times the number of human cells. Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science reveal that the average adult has a little less than 40 billion bacterial cells and around 30 billion human cells, bringing the ratio closer to 1: 1. Note that we consider ourselves unique, however, we are also all those germs. If we kill them we will die, we need them in our intestines, women in their genitals, we have them distributed over the skin.

How many bones does a foot have?

Do you know what our usual temperature is?

Humans are homothermic, that is, we maintain a body temperature independent of the outside. The normal is 37.6º in the armpit; if it reaches 38º, we say that there is hyperthermia, and if this is accompanied by manifestations such as sweating or headache, we speak of fever. But the normal thing for a cat is that it has between 38.5 and 39.5º.
