54)Human body part of dynamic creation.

Talk about the creation being dynamic and changing as opposed to being static: This is true at all levels, including that of the individual human being and his body:

From today's Globe and Mail:

Body speeds

Compiled by the San Diego Union-Tribune:

Fingernails grow four times faster than toenails. The middle fingernail grows fastest; the thumb slowest.

Humans shed about 600,000 particles of skin per hour, about 1.5 pounds a year or 105 pounds of skin by the time they are 70 years old. This translates to an entirely new outer layer of skin cells every 27 days, almost 1,000 new skins in an average lifetime.

Gums are renewed every one to two weeks. The average lifespan of a human taste bud is seven to 10 days. By age 60, most people have lost half their taste buds.
