Did you know… If the blood vessels of an adult were lined up end to end, they would circle the equator four times?
Most of the blood vessels in the human body are microscopic capillaries, which are short in length; however there are many of them.
If you were to count the number of microscopic capillaries, there would be approximately 40 BILLION of them in an adult body.
To give you an idea of what that number means, & to understand how big just ONE billion is – if you made $100,000 a day (£64,221.97) working 7 days a week for 365 days a year, it would take you just under twenty-seven (27) and a half years to earn ONE billion dollars!
The next type of blood vessel you’ve most likely heard of are capillaries. Capillaries are microscopic, but they constitute the majority of the body’s 100,000 miles of vessels.
Remember, vessels include arteries, veins & capillaries.
Arteries carry oxygen-rich blood away from the heart to all of the body’s tissues. They branch several times, becoming smaller & smaller as they carry blood further from the heart & into organs, with the capillaries allowing oxygen & nutrients to & from organ’s cells.
