According to American Heart Association, adult heart beats approx 100,000 times/day.
That’s about 60-100 beats/min or at least 1 beat/sec. In an avg lifetime, a human heart will beat over 2.5 billion times. (1/n)


Heart rate is affected by age & fitness level.Heart rate slows as children get older or adults get fitter. Chart frm National Institute of Health:

Newborn:70-160 bpm
1-4 yrs:80-120 bpm
5-9 yrs:75-110 bpm
10+ yrs & non-athletic adults: 60-100 bpm
Athletic adults:40 to 60bpm (2/n)
❤️ is actually a Handful
An adult heart is about size of that person’s hands clasped together in a double fist.Since people vary in size, most realistic assessment is made using ur own hands
Heart can also enlarge coz of illness & conditions-such as congestive heart failure.(3/n)

इनमे से कुछ के कारण हल्की खांसी जुख़ाम जैसे लक्षण उत्पन्न होते हैं.

मानव को संक्रमित करने वाले सात कोरोना वायरस में से तीन सर्वाधिक हानिकारक रहे हैं (2/5) #कोरोना_को_जानें
#SARS_CoV_2 एक नया कोरोना वायरस है। ऐसा माना जा रहा है कि यह वायरस चमगादड़ से ही मनुष्य में आया है।

हिरोशिमा की कहानी-मनुष्य की अदम्य जिजीविषा की कहानी(थ्रेड)

75 साल पूर्व आजके दिन #हिरोशिमा पर परमाणु हमला हुआ
उस समय Manhattan Project के डॉ. हैरल्ड जैकबसेन के कथनानुसार ऐसा माना जाता था कि इस शहर में 75 वर्षों तक कुछ नहीं पनपेगा..
पर आज हिरोशिमा अग्रणी विकसित शहरों में है!(1/n)
6 अगस्त 1945 को bomber ‘Enola Gay’ ने हिरोशिमा के ऊपर ‘Little boy’ 16 किलोटन का परमाणु बम छोड़ा।विस्फोट के कारण शहर के 4.2 लाख निवासियों में से 80,000 तत्काल मारे गए।
यह संख्या रेडीएशन के कारण हुई बीमारियों और अन्य चोटों के कारण साल के अंत तक 1.41 लाख हो गयी।(2/n)
कुल विनाश की त्रिज्या कथित तौर पर 1.6 किमी थी।सभी ओर विध्वंस का नज़ारा था।

बम का प्रभाव इतना भयानक था कि सभी जीवित प्राणी विस्फोट के कारण भीषण गर्मी व दबाव से मौत के शिकार हो गए। जो बाहर थे वो जल के मर गए और जो भवनों के अंदर थे उन्हें अवर्णनीय दबाव व गर्मी से मार दिया था।(3/n)
