I doubt the blood cell thing is real because the body need nutriants to make the blood cells sure its fast but u might want to lesten the number by a good 14 million or so.Common ex.The blood banks only take a half too one pint of blood a timeYet they make you wait three too six months too regain it!Blood cells live about a week so equaling the amount made and lost wouldnt work due to cuts and diseases( I know it doesnt mean exact but still )That and your body knows more about itself then u do keeping acurate count of everythingYour bones and all get signals from the nerves telling it that there is too much too little or just right ( your body likes a little surplus tho)So its a never ending change that varys among climate and a average would be a ton less then 15m being that about 50,000 blood cells fit on a pin or soo ud be adding a ton of presure on your veins and they would need cerculated threw your heart ud need too donate blood too survive over 70 years as for the dieing part a lucky cell always mooveing too the lower body getting more nutrients too live on can live 3 weeks easy but one that passes away from it and into a cut or a heavly diseased area could possibly die in a few minutesIts the gamble of the life of a cellIf its wrong ill figure that out soon enough when I slowly lose blood and die HA! I pulled a funny in my pants!-reply by fakers go bye bye/hsaaa funny in my pants!!
