However, the pain could of course be a sign of something more serious, including heart problems or a condition related to other organ systems in the body. Which leads us to the question of the day…. So if you are looking down at your body, place your hand right in the center of your chest.
Now move it over a tiny bit towards your left side. It sits between the lungs and is on front of your backbone spine.
This is a very interesting question that is not easily answered. There are many working theories as to why the heart is positioned a bit off center to the left. One of the more plausible theories is that the left ventricle is heavier than the right due to the fact that it requires more force to deliver blood to the entire body.
The right ventricle only delivers to the nearby lungs. So because there is an imbalance in size the heart leans towards the left. Some of the other theories involve the way we develop as mammals as opposed to other species, and the fact that the heart functions more efficiently to the side as opposed to in center where it meets the rigidity of the central sternum.
