Our Body - Constantly Changing

In the book, Discovering The Body's Wisdom by Mirka Knaster, it talks about how much our body changes. I've always been fascinated with this section of the book and feel it is very appropriate for this blog.

Pg 46
We are not "a frozen anatomical structure, but literally a river of intelligence and information and energy that's constantly renewing itself," says Deepak Chopra. Every second of our lives we are remaking ourselves more effortlessly and spontaneously than we change our clothes. For example, in less than one year, we replace 98 percent of all the atoms in our bodies.

-- a new liver every six weeks
-- a new skeleton every three months
-- a new stomach lining every five days
-- a new skin once a month
-- the raw material of our DNA comes and goes every six weeks
