  1. You’ve had summer vacation five or six times since you were eight. How in the heck are you still ten!?

    • Still though, much of the material in the cells is replaced over time. I suppose the one thing not replaced is the DNA in those brain cells that form genes that are suppressed, as the more accessible parts of the DNA are slowly replaced when breaks happen and are repaired.

      • DNA cannot break down- the cell needs it to tell it what to do. Cells with altered DNA do things like become cancer or simply die (and stem cells replace them)

        • That depends on exactly what breaks, and how badly. Biological processes are mess. Mistakes can happen, and frequently do. Most of these processes are highly fault-tolerant, however. Which is a good thing, because otherwise life would be impossible.

  2. Not even close…. Despite changing your cells every seven years, the cells that are replaced are still within your body.
