Question Your World - Breathing

Question Your World - Breathing by ScienceMuseumofVA

Our bodies are pretty amazing and complex! A lot of the involuntary actions that we do every single second keep us alive and healthy. Breathing, for example, is one of the most basic functions of the human body. So, how often does a person do this? Well, on average about 15 times a minute! This varies based on activity level, but on average we are clocking in at around 15 breaths per minute. Check it out, do an experiment, try to count how many times you inhale/exhale in a minute. Try it while laying down, sitting up, walking, maybe even running.
