The Life of Cells
Each human being is composed of more than
50 trillion cells. Hundreds of millions of them die
every minute, and just as many are born through
cellular division. Some, such as certain white
blood cells, die after only a few hours, while
others, such as neurons, may survive throughout
a human being's life.
