How much blood is in the human body?
#Cosmoread: A 1-gallon milk jug enough blood in the human body a little more than you have to fill.
Orlando Health – The average adult blood circulating inside his body about 1.2-1.5 gallons (4.5-5.5 liters), the Dr. Daniel Landau, a hematologist and oncologist at the University of Florida Cancer Center said.
You had no blood, you want to weigh up to 8 to 10 percent. (Of course, you would not be alive.) So, for example, a person weighing 120 pounds. (54 kg), about 9.6 to 12 lbs and takes up blood. (4.4 to 5.4 kg).
Until they are 5 or 6 years, about the same amount of blood of children as adults do. But as much as the kids are small and their bones, muscles and organs weight, their blood, their body weight than it does in adults, a large percentage of makes, Landau said.
In comparison, the infant is barely any blood. A newborn weighs between 5 and 8 lbs. (2.3 to 3.6 kg) of blood in their body only about 1 cup (0.2 liters), he said.
That is why, as a 10 pound is about the same amount of blood. (4.5 kg) cat is in his body, Dr. Greg Nelson, Valley Stream, New York, a veterinarian with the central veterinary colleagues said. A 80-pound dog, which means a bit more blood (about 86 kg in cats ml per kilogram, compared with about 55 ml) is. (36 kg) of dog blood 0.8 gallons (3 liters), which Nelson said.
Blood donations are adults, health workers 1 pint (half a liter) take, Landau said. Blood cells have a life span of about 120 days, and the body constantly creates new red blood cells in the bone marrow. But it still takes time to regenerate these cells, you can not donate blood every day.
“That’s why you can only donate so often – because you are waiting for the blood to recover [which] usually about four to six weeks [takes],” Landau Live Science said.
In adults, blood plasma is about 0.8 gallons (3 liters), red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets occur. Vitamins, electrolytes and other nutrients are dissolved in the blood, and the body’s cells and organs are used.
For example, gold human blood is about 0.02 percent.
“Fun if you’re trying to sell gold in your blood, you really have enough gold in order to sell approximately 40,000 people need blood,” Landau said.
But those 40,000 people sleep about 8 ounces (28 grams) would yield – is not enough to make anyone rich, he said.
Iron is far more plentiful in the blood. This element helps to keep their round shape of red blood cells, explaining why adults ounces iron in their blood floating around about 0:11 to 0:14 (3 to 4 grams), he said.
