Ever given a thought about your first feel with your mom? The smile that she had on her lips when she first felt you?. Yes, it was due to your heartbeat. Proudly holding the first place of being created in a mother's womb, the organ wears a crown of being the first living on earth. Though its size is just like a pear, the functions that it does is way too far than a supercomputer does. When a woman is three months pregnant, she feels the younger herself slowly making its steps to the world, the heart now is primitively developed and starts to beat giving a sign to the external world regarding its homecoming. 

It forms an important member of the circulatory system. In humans and other mammals, the heart is divided into two main parts, atria which is the upper left and right part, ventricles which is the lower left and right part. Commonly they can be called as left and right heart. Like all beings that live on the food that it consumes, heart to has a fluid that it lives upon, Blood. It's composed of blood cells suspended in blood plasma. Blood is a body fluid in humans and other animals that delivers necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the cells and transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells. Blood is circulated the body through blood vessels by the pumping action of the heart. Blood performs many important functions within the body, including:

· Supply of oxygen to tissues (bound to hemoglobin, which is carried in red cells)

· supply of nutrients such as glucoseamino acids, and fatty acids 

· Removal of waste such as carbon dioxideurea, and lactic acid, etc

As every liquid has its pH rate, blood also is regulated to stay within the narrow range of 7.35 to 7.45, making it slightly basic. Blood that has a pH below 7.35 is too acidic, whereas blood pH above 7.45 is too basic. Like a living thing has a creator, blood cells do have creators that reside in the bone marrow. The process of creation is called hematopoiesis. The coloring matter of blood (hemochrome) is largely due to the protein in the blood responsible for oxygen transport. Different groups of organisms use different proteins. Hemoglobin is the principal determinant of the color of blood in vertebrates.

A person with brain dead can still mark his presence on earth with a beating heart. The heart is considered as a part of a mother that has been transferred to her offspring. like any other things that we value and give love, the heart does crave for care and attention. The junk and poison that you consume bleeds it. The drinks that you fill your stomach with, kills its cells breathe by breath. Your brain wants for unhealthy items but your heart cries out loud with a ‘BIG NO’. For every waste that you let inside your body, one among millions of cells in your body is taking its last breath. So, choose your options wisely.
