Do some atoms remain in the body for life?

Will Gray  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
I was wondering if any atoms remain in the body throughout an entire life (from birth to death).

Thanks in advance.

Will

What do you think?

I'm guessing most of the atoms that comprise nerve cells would stay fairly constant. Perhaps some atoms in bone as well, but I'm not sure.
