Cell turnover rates

  1. Dec 23, 2009 #1
    I've heard that the human body completely renews all of its cells in seven years; the pancreas in 24 hours.

    I've been trying to find a website that lists the turnover rates for each organ, tissue or type of cell. If anyone has a link or a book with that kind of information, let me know.

    Thanks ^_^
