Cell the living "room"
Cell is the simplest form of living matter, with power to grow, develop, reproduce itself, and, with others of its kind, build up a living fabric.
The word comes from the Latin "cellula", meaning a small room.
Red blood units are continuously being produced in the red bone marrow of large bones, at a rate speed of about 2 million per second.
The living "room" is the site of tremendous biochemical activity called metabolism.
This is the process of chemical and physical change which goes on continually in the living organism: build-up of new tissue, replacement of old tissue, conversion of food to energy, disposal of waste materials, reproduction - all the activities that we characterize as "life."
Their origin has to do with the origin of life, one of the most important steps in the theory of evolution.
Their birth is marked as the passage to biological life and is the structural and functional unit of all known living organisms.
It is the smallest unit of an organism that is classified as living, and is sometimes called the building block of life.
Each unit is at least somewhat self-contained and self-maintaining: it can take in nutrients, convert these nutrients into energy, carry out specialized functions, and reproduce as necessary.
Their division involves a single unit (called a mother) dividing into two daughter units.
Between successive divisions, grow through the functioning of metabolism the process of nutrient molecules.
At the cellular level, all inflammatory, autoimmune, and neurodegenerative disorders are caused by the oxygen disorder (dysfunctional oxygen utilization) caused by toxicity in the body.
Oxygen at this level is the most important healing substance, the most effective detox agent, the premium blood cleanser, the most potent antibiotic, a versatile hormone, a blood clotter and declotter, and the conductor of the orchestra of the immune system.
Without oxygen, the lungs cannot breathe, the heart cannot beat, the brain cannot think, the bowel cannot digest or absorb food, and the muscles cannot move. That is all very basic and essential.
