157 STASHED IDEAS

Fat cells get bigger when you gain weight and smaller when you lose weight. But the number of cells stays about the same.


Your fat cells are designed to store fat. When cells become full, the fat ends up in the wrong places, such as our muscles or liver, and that's when we can suffer from diseases such as type 2 diabetes. 


Our fat cells can expand to different sizes depending on our genes, meaning that health varies depending on ethnicity. If you go past your safe fat-carrying capacity, you will get ill.

Body Rejuvenation

The body replaces itself with a new set of cells every seven to ten years. This has been discovered by Swedish molecular biologist, Dr. Jonas Frisen.

When it comes to aging, our DNAs remain the same from the day of a cell's birth throughout its lifespan, however, most new atoms are taken in through the air we breathe, the food we consume, and the liquids we intake.

Does your body really replace itself every seven years?
