Wisdom of the Body (WOB) and cell death

Cells “don’t know when to die!” They are eliminated by other processes which I call collectively Wisdom of the Body (WOB). There are two mechanisms of cell death: Controlled (apoptosis) and arbitrary (necrosis).

The body is composed of tissue units, each made of cells. In the healthy organism cell death is controlled and for each dead cell, a new one is formed.

Dead[cell] = Born[cell]

In order to satisfy this equality, the organism has to know when a cell dies, and when to replace it with a new one. This knowledge is called in my site Wisdom of the Body (WOB). Its nature is one of the great medical mysteries.

Microbes and other agents kill cells arbitrarily. Nevertheless WOB senses the loss and stimulates cell production. The issue is explained in depth in my site: Streaming tissues:

Here is another mystery: I can at will prolong the life of many of my cells. However I doubt whether it merits to be described in this forum, which is dedicated to discuss NKS, and not cell death. However, if the forum coordinator finds it important and creates a specialized section for this topic, e.g. The secrets of the Wisdom of the Body, I shall be pleased to explain how I improve the survival of my cells.
