Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Andy, Hackney
Qualification: I asked the surgeon as he was putting the stents in my heart when I had a heart attack.
Answer: Blood travels at three feet per second when it leaves the heart, but it slows down as it gets into smaller arteries and capillaries. It takes a minute to get around the body.

Name: Vanessa, Ashstead
Qualification: Read it in the Reader's Digest Book of the Human Body
Answer: Five quarts of blood per minute are transported around the body.
