Wonder-boy wants to know how many times a heart beats a day?

A heartbeat varies, depending on stress and body temperature. A rate of 72 to 80 beats a minute is considered normal for a healthy person at rest. At birth, it is closer to 130 and decreases in adolescence, with a slight upswing in old age. Women have a faster rate. At 1 440 minutes a day, an average heartbeat of 80 gives you 115200 beats in a day. - Straightdope.com; blurtit.com; education.sdsc.edu
