I have noticed the following heart rate increases after alcohol 
consumption, after eating a meal, when I am thirsty, and when I am overheated 
(ie., while sitting in a car vehichle). I understand alcohol is a vasodilator. 
Are the other items listed also a vasodilators? I am curious as to what other 
daily activities raise our pulse. Also, I would like to know why are some 
individuals aware of rapid pulse, while others are not? I'm sure it's because 
their rate is higher, then why would it be higher in some individuals? Thank
