Everybody Has Heart

It pumps blood to your whole body, and blood has the stuff your cells need: nutrients, oxygen, and chemical regulators that help your body function. It also carries away carbon dioxide and other waste products.

Do something good for your heart today — like having some extra vegetables or taking a brisk walk. A healthy heart helps keep your tissues perfused — getting all that good stuff to your smallest vessels (and then carrying away the bad stuff) to keep your body in its best shape.

Wonderful illustration by Rachel Ignotofsky. See more from this series, and buy prints of her work at her Etsy shop.
