All mammals, and that includes man, appear to have the same number of heart beats and breaths in a lifespan.

An interesting analysis of the breathing relationship as a PDF can be seen HERE

An interesting video by Dr. Michael Greger giving the latest research findings connecting heart rate with lifespan can be viewed HERE

A further factor that may extend our healthy lives is our breathing. Visit TheBreathConnection site above or you may find this pdf on lifespan of mammals related to their breathing rate interesting, HERE

The above information on breathing rate and lifespan has been given even more credibility with this research on heart rate (respiratory rate and heart rate are closely linked)
