The time it takes a cell to move through the complete cycle, from growth to division, varies enormously. It may take as little as a few hours, or it may last as long as the body lives.
Some skin cells live about 8 hours, cells that line the intestine about 1 1/2 days, heart cells about 90 days, red blood cells about 120 days, while undamaged muscle and nerve cells last a lifetime.
AMAZING ISN’T IT?
