At about two months of age, your body has all the cells it will ever get, somewhere around one hundred trillion of them. For the rest of your life, your body will not produce any additional cells, only replace the old cells.
Also, your cells are constantly in the process of dying and being replaced, at the rate of three hundred million per minute.
So every four weeks, your entire outer layer of skin is replaced. Every two months, practically every cell in your heart muscle is rebuilt. Within two to three years, your entire bone structure is replaced. So every two to three years, every cell in your body is replaced with a new cell. In other words, you’ll have a totally new body.
The question is, what kind of body will it be? Will your new body be weaker or stronger than the one you have today?
It’s up to you. Because as your old cells die and are replaced, your new cells depend totally upon the building materials you provide it – the foods you eat, the liquids you drink and the air you breathe. If your cell’s needs are properly met, then ultimately a new, healthy and strong cell will be reproduced.
So if you want energy, physical strength and freedom from disease, then take care of your cells.
