“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Never throw out anyone.”
—Audrey Hepburn, 20th century British actress
The human body has the miraculous ability to renew almost all of its various cell types.
Did you know that we have 30 trillion red blood cells, and approximately 100 million are being formed each minute? If you do the math, it gives each red blood cell the life expectancy of about four months.
Here are the renewal rates of some other cell types:
|Small Intestine||2-4 days|
|White Blood Cells||2-5 days|
|Bone Osteoclasts||2 weeks|
|Bone Osteoblasts||3 months|
|Fat Cells||8 years|
|Skin Cells||10-30 days|
|Liver Cells||6 months-1 year|
In what ways beyond mother nature can you support the restoration and renewal of yourself and those around you to live a longer more fulfilling and happier life?
