The living you....and the dead you

Had a thought today.....can you imagine how much of our own "body" we leave lying around eg skin cells/hair/nail clippings etc.

Can you imagine if your own body material was collected in a single place that you shed over a lifetime.

Anyone want to take a guess at calculating the volume per year? what would 40 years look like?

  1. just been googling a few different sites - 3.6kg a year in skin cells alone -

    So if you are 30 years old and 6ft tall of average weight....your entire body could have an equal size weight of 90-100kgs standing right next to you if you swept them up in a pile......
