Haha me and you Joel! We have to stop these little tweens spreading inaccurate scientific knowledge around the internet one tumblr post at a time!
“The human body recreates itself every six months. Nearly every cell and bone dies, and is replaced. You are not who you were last November. “
Actually this is bullshit. Most of your cells are terminally differentiated at birth. You’re born with all the cells that you will ever have in your heart and muscles etc. You can’t make new cells but you can repair them when they get damaged. Epithelial cells are constantly renewed though.
I can’t believe this has over 10,000 notes *FACEPALM!*
Yeah… I know. I have so much internet now that I could never be sad again.
But I also have exams to study for so my internet will be getting neglected for the next few weeks. At the moment it’s getting wasted on my dad watching cat videos at home!!! (Because he quit his job and all.) I can’t even get through season 1 of madmen because I have all this anatomy shit to memorize. It’s killing me.
Tell the internet I love him. I’ll be back soon.
