Blood Vessels

If you stretched out all the blood vessels and capillaries in your body, they would wrap around the equator two times. The smallest of your capillaries are one-fiftieth the diameter of one of your hairs. If you weigh twenty-five pounds (11 kg) more than average, your heart has to work to circulate blood an extra 5,000 miles (8,000 km).
