Did you know, your heart pumps the capacity of seven, 1000L (275 gallon) IBC containers each day?

Didn't know that we should pay more attention to those type of things.

The heart is a wonderful organ. After a brief episode in a casualty department and seeing it in operation on an echocardiogram display, I appreciate it even more!

This is why we must keep it beating efficiently without compromise in any of the arteries or capillaries-- that is why consuming healthy fats, lots of plant proteins, just a smidgeon of sea salt, laughing, being intimate with someone, exercising regularly, sleeping at least 8 hours and rehydrating oneself constantly, is essential

Yes, everything in moderation and as they say, "laughter is the best medicine"

They do don't they . . . makes sense as it opens up airways, releases tightness of chest muscles, involves exchange of inhalations and exhalations most remarkably and raises your temp, pulse, blood flow, mood and tolerance for stress @EugenesDDen

@EugenesDDen Not necessarily...case in point: Collapsed lung. Re-inflating lung is far superior to laughter in this scenario, which would be painful and may further damage the lung! Another example: breathing of dense chlorine gas fumes. Laughter would most likely be unproductive and probably only antagonize the gasping and wheezing caused by the gaseous carcinogen! Final example: Inhalation of food that get's lodged in glottis. Heimlich maneuver trumps laughter, which may cause further insuffation of obstruction towards lung(s)
