What Happens To Dead Cells In OUr Bodies ?
« on: 22/03/2009 12:33:37 »
Dear All,

As a sheepy I of course contains lots of cells.....even more than 100 !!..and that's loads !!

Ewe probably contain quite a few too !

look here's some doing lots of ' cell-stuff '



Nice eh ?..being donated to a clinic next Tuesday !


When cells die...what happens to them ?..do they just float about getting in the way or do they become ' cell compost ' ?


I wish I knew !...I yearn to know !

If ewe know what happens then please use the power of your mind to tell your hands to type the answer !

Many thanks



hugs


Neil
