Heartbeat hypothesis – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Heartbeat hypothesis postulates that every living creature has a limited number of heartbeats or breaths. The hypothesis is based on two observations. First, that small mammals such as a mouse have rapid resting heart rate compared to a larger mammal such as an elephant, and that their respective lifespans are inversely proportional to those rates. Second, is that athletically fit people tend to have a lower resting heart rate and tend to live longer than unhealthy people.[1]
