Human beings begin as the union of two cells. The repeated division is responsible for the growth that eventually becomes a living being. Does cellular reproduction result in identical body cells? Does the continued cellular reproduction result in an overabundance of body cells? Why or why not?
While mitosis does result in the replication of body cells, the cells produced are not identical. During fetal development, the body cells become specialized. For example, some of the cells are designed to function in the digestive system, some in the integumentary system, and still others in the skeletal system. It is necessary for cellular reproduction to take place for growth and development. Some of the cells being reproduced will be used to replace cells that are old or no longer functional. The life span of the body’s cells can vary by type and system. Age and overall health status play a role in the rate of cellular reproduction and life span.
